Davis Dam

I brought up my NeXht app this morning to find my fruit eating spot and found Davis Dam right around the corner from Laughlin. I jotted down the coordinates, fed them to the GPS and was there in a flash. It’s a sweet little dam, notable in that it was built with local bonds as a means of powering Laughlin and the Mohave Valley, and they had the thing paid off by 2000 from the electricity revenue. Power must be cheap there!

Laughlin Dusk

I went wandering around Laughlin this evening and took a bunch of random shots. If you would like to see them, click the photo below. btw: I have no idea what those things are hanging out of the name and yes, that’s the moon.

Update: Upon a closer look, they’re chips. Still not sure what the top thing is…

Hanging In Bullhead

I had to kill a little time yesterday before checking in to my room so I ate my fruit down on the Colorado River and scanned the area from the buttes.

Landed in a great little room and had some spicy New Orleans shrimp at Bubba Gumps. The internet was down so I couldn’t post this until today, but I’m back.

Free White and 71

Well, I’ve certainly got the free part down. You’ve got to love a country that allows you to hop in your little freedom ride with a bed in the back and hit the road to anywhere you want to go. And man, am I white! When you walk around other people that look like they live in the desert, (I guess because they do), you sure feel a touch out of place. As to the 71, I figured I better hurry up and do this post now, just saying…

I ate a great chili dog tonight at a Wienerschnitzel (remember those). It was a Chicago style, beef dog, with chili and onions, and jalapeƱos. After that I stopped at a Safeway (remember those) for tomorrows fruit, and cheese cake with coffee ice cream for tonights desert.

I also started on my tan so when I hit the Pioneer pool tomorrow I won’t blind anyone.

Powder Powered

As I was preping supplies for this upcoming trip, Steph asked me what my favorite powder was. Since I consume a lot of powder daily, I asked if she was referring to one of my spice powders: Cayenne, Turmeric, Garlic, Ginger and Pepper, or one of my exotic powders: Hawthorne Berry, Ashwagandha Root, Gotu Kola, Soy Lecithin or Amla?

She said she was talking about my protein powders, Vanilla or Strawberry. Oh, Vanilla.

Anyway, more power to get here:

Piper On Bags

I was getting ready tonight for my upcoming Spring Break jaunt and I threw some old travel bags into the corner of my closet. It’s amazing what cats find comfortable, and as I write this, she’s still there.

It’s funny how one can have a debilitating disease and yet be in the best shape of their lives. I think my body literally slaps modern medical crap up side it’s collective bullshit head. I have Parkinson’s. It runs strong in my family on my dad’s side and my brother is suffering from it full on.

A few years back I felt it coming on in weird ways but my diet and exercise program has pushed it back to only one symptom, I can feel it rushing through my body. It’s like a freight train pounding through my blood vessels and in the quiet of night as I lie in bed, it’s really loud.

I’ve come to embrace it as a form of energy, as opposed to a disease. It no longer worries me, it just pushes me forward now…
