(Sombrerete to Zacatecas)

*Authors note:  It has been brought to my attention that sometimes I make sweeping generalizations about large swaths of people and that this is often considered offensive.  This is going to be one of those posts.  I would like to point out that I make a conscious effort to indiscriminately insult people.  If you were Read More

La Paz to Todos Los Santos

12/18 – 12/23 “What is time?” “I don’t know Alex.” “Well it ends when you die.” “That’s great.” “Have you thought much about it?

Adios Estados Unidos

The Dutch Reach

From Boulder Beach there is a short but steep climb into Boulder City.  Boulder City is unremarkable. As you leave town and get onto US 95 South, you get one of those endless desert views.  We roll downhill for 20 miles or so.  There is a field of solar panels in the distance, but spatial Read More
