Floating On Asphalt

I Love a good road trip.  Every so often, we go on one.  This time we went to St. George.

Essential items for a good road trip:

A. An abundance and good variety of snacky foods.

B. At least 20 tracks of CCR.

C.  Leica and Tri-x.  ( a must)

D. WATER!

And a little luck never hurt anyone.

Dad Is My Co-pilot

He’s gone by many names for the past 75 years. Ernesto, Ernest, Ernie, Ern, Angus. Whether he’s on a 10 day excursion into Baja or constructing his own retaining wall out of cinderblocks in his back yard, he has never stopped making a life for himself & his family that he loves.

Here’s a man who can take a clunky, unpredictable arc welder he borrowed from a farmer in the middle of Baja California and fix his crippled trailer by welding scraps of metal, rusty wrenches and other detritus  he found on the farm.

Then on another adventure, he used a tarp and some ingenuity to make a makeshift keel on his Zodiac after he hit some sharp rocks on the way down a class IV rapid on the Colorado river.

He has instilled in me my sense of adventure & I love him for it;  thanks Dad.

You Can’t Eat Just One

Tijuana, 1996

And you really can’t. My appetite for these little joys rapped in happiness was usually contained with no less than three, and they were cheap too (two bucks American for a plate).  What a great way to spend time waiting for the next bus to the 5 & 10.  Good thing my Leica was taco-resistant. Viva la sabor!
