A Weekend in Duncans Mills

Last year I spent the weekend in Boonville at the Not-S0-Simple Living Fair.  One of the highlights of the event was the fact that at some point during the weekend, an anonymous camper came to my campsite and fixed and rebuilt the tent that I had so poorly constructed. I wrote about this episode – complete with […]

Miss Daisy’s Magical Musical Wonderland

I recently spent the night in the big tipi at Miss Daisy’s Magical Musical Wonderland in Sebastopol, California. A friend of mine was having a sing-a-long and decided to hold it at Miss Daisy’s.

A Night in Fort Bragg

Our adventures began when we left Eureka for Fort Bragg.  On the way up north on US CA 101, I had seen a sign pointing out a shortcut to Fort Bragg, so I figured we would take that on our way to the Mendocino Coast.  Plus Teresa had her GPS system, so what really could […]

The Emerald Forest Campground

Patrick’s Point and The Emerald Forest Campground

The decision to take a road trip up north with my BFF Teresa was made on the spur of the moment. The fact that this was a long holiday weekend and Teresa and I had neither reservations nor an itinerary was not a deterrent.  As a matter of fact, neither of us made any attempts […]
