Best Decision Ever

2015-11-18_05-04-25

Love takes us to mysterious places. Four years ago, setting forth with the most beautiful souls I could ever dream of. Never stop exploring, never stop living a life of awesome.

Meditations

Meditations

Three years ago today, accidentally caught a guy meditating on a ledge in the dark of the night. What secrets do the hoodoos keep?

Nine Months

Nine months.  Places where only the moon and the stars can tell you exactly where you are. #california #desert #deathvalley #sanddunes #vscocam

Wait and Watch

Sometimes we live with an empty space that we never knew was there, until someone comes and fills it.  The best surprises are the ones you never knew you were waiting for. Meanwhile, in the middle of the desert last night, waiting for the moon to rise so we can find out where the hell we are. LOL

Dedeckera Canyon

Tested another version of the swivel mount during the first day of the year, this time using a wheel-bearing assembly (razor scooter), instead of a wheel caster. I thought it would get rid of a lot of “shake” I was getting from engine vibration, since there is a lot of play in the caster wheel. Looks like it didn’t really make a difference, and most of the excess vibration from the too-stiff motor mounts was getting absorbed by the new Hero 4’s super wide angle anyway. Next project is to replace the motor mounts back to rubber from poly, to smoothen out the bone-jarring idle we started getting after doing the 1.6L 16v motor swap. Or, what about getting a gimbal? $!

Eureka Sand Dunes Moonset

Spent the new year under a blanket of stars before the magnificent Eureka Sand Dunes in Death Valley. Absolutely stunning, but beauty always has its price – temps plunging into the 20's overnight froze everything including all our drinking water. Slept in a tent, and woke up at 1am to take a timelapse of the moon sinking behind the mountains around us. As I said before.. if your bed is comfortable, the view is probably not that great.

Regrets are for Losers

At the Border

Two years ago today, we crossed the Canadian border into the 49th US state. Even though we barely rolled in as the border agent literally pushed us back into America, driving to Alaska (roughly similar distance from LA-NY) via an air-cooled VW is one of the greatest adventures of a lifetime.

Take your chances, and most especially the time to do the things in life that you dream of. Because while dreams are made when you close your eyes, they only come true when you wake up and make them happen. #vw #volkswagen #bus #alaska #goforgold #roadtrip #homeiswhereyouparkit

When things are, or aren’t going your way- take a deep breath and take things into perspective.

Northern Lights

Aurora Borealis

A year ago today, we were living in our VW, making our way to Alaska during our honeymoon.
A year ago today, we slept under a glowing night sky of the Aurora Borealis.

When was the last time you experienced what it means to be truly alive?

Time Warp

I am guilty of abandoning this side of the internet for more than half-a-year, while visiting exotic (and not-so-exotic) places of the world. I was worried about the non-linear sequence of events, and had a little maintenance to do in the back-end of things. Pictures are now going to be bigger, and the layout is dynamic and will adjust to most screen sizes (even tablets and mobile phones). I guess these are the problems of the 21st century, the modern day equivalent of 800×600 vs 1024×768 hooplas.

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I figured, F it. I’m sitting on a massive backlog of material that I have been meaning to share. I’ll be back-posting dates, so keep an eye out for some crazy shit.
