What brought on the challenge to travel America in a trailer, where have you been so far and where are you planning to go to?
My girlfriend Mary and I spent a few years planning and saving our money so that we could afford to restore a trailer, quit our jobs and explore our giant backyard. We left home 4 months ago at the perfect time in our lives to try out a minimal lifestyle on the road, centered around playing outdoors and picture taking. To even begin a project like this you really have to want it more than you fear it. After that you find ways to make things happen.
We spent the Spring in the Southwest (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah) exploring before heading south to San Diego to find some surf for a week. Then we drove the entire coast, mostly on Highway 1, all the way up to Port Angeles in Washington. After that we spent a week in Seattle and now we’re in Montana. We’ll be heading East with no specific agenda whenever we run out of things to do here.
I realize this is a huge stretch to include in a top 30 for LA, but this place is so damn cool I have to recognize it! The pizza here is outstanding and each of the 6 locations brew a variety of Pizza Port draft beers available for purchase to accompany your pizza choice. This place is too rad. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Grub on! (menu)
“A National Salute to Bob Hope and the Military” in the Port of San Diego includes a bronze sculpture of Bob Hope and 15 bronze figures representing the men and women of all military branches – the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. Audio of a Bob Hope comedy routine from his days on the USO tour replays in the courtyard. The U.S.S. Midway aircraft carrier can be seen in the background.
Agrochemical giant Monsanto has been sued by the City of San Diego
and the San Diego Unified Port District for selling chemicals the
multinational knew were harmful to the ecology, including that of the
now heavily polluted San Diego Bay.
According to the San Diego Reader, city agencies filed suit
on Monday, alleging Monsanto hid its knowledge of the toxicity of
polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Despite being aware of these
facts, the company peddled its chemical compounds for industrial
use, including shipbuilding, electrical component manufacture,
food packaging and paint plasticizers.
