About this blog

The traveller. I'm an Adventure Artist! I sold my 4-Runner, and bought an '86 VW Westfalia (now known as "Tommy, the trooper"). Then, I sold my PA system and Fender "Hot Rod Deluxe" guitar amp, along with other various musical accessories, and some furniture, and bought backpacking gear, a laptop, a handheld GPS, and art supplies for "plein air" painting. I've stuffed all of this into my van, along with my beautiful dog, Roxi, my guitar, and the ashes of my two dead dogs, "Shelby" and "Piper" (...it's a long story ;0), and I hit the road.

The trip. First on the agenda, breaking myself in gently, Vancouver Island, and visiting friends along the way. Then, up the Inside Passage to Prince Rupert and Smithers, for my friend, Tracy's, wedding. Back in Kamloops for a few days, then off to explore the Kootneys, and Waterton National Park.

Now take a deep breath, and off I go into Montana, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, California, and back up the coast through Oregon, and Washington to Vancouver...where I will no doubt have to get my snow tires dropped off to me so that I can bring Tommy back home. Why January 13th, you may be asking???? My visa expires...assholes!

The idea. Is continually evolving. I have to think about how to articulate this. Its essence is ephemeral and slightly out of reach at the moment.
