No, I’m not talking about a delicious sweet dessert made of layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey – that’s baklava. And yes, baklava (http://goo.gl/08of2n) can be eaten while wearing a balaclava – if you pull the mask up to expose your mouth. Read the rest of STAY WARM, Eat Baklava, Wear Balaclavas »

Most snowbirds have fled their winter desert hangouts and have moved or are moving north to their stick house or, if fulltiming, into their favorite summer destinations. Most will travel between favored campgrounds, but some will be heading into the national forests to boondock at their secret campsites, providing they haven’t been eliminated by the Forest Service’s new Travel Management Plan (TMR).
That’s another story, but briefly, new rules for driving and boondocking in the national forests now define where you can drive and where you can camp. Make sure you pick up the particular forest’s Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) that defines the approved roads and dispersed camping areas.

It’s 1,300 very interesting, often thrilling miles from the Silver Strand below San Diego to Whidbey Island in Puget Sound north of Seattle. I picked those two spots because they are among our favorite places to camp and represent the north-south extremes of the western contiguous U.S.
After getting ourselves involved in putting an addition on a mountain cabin we bought last year, which had limited our days in the travel trailer to about four months, we finally had a chance to shake off cabin fever for a road trip from Southern California up to Washington State for my daughter’s college graduation.
I’ll save you the agony of reading about a father’s pride in his daughter’s day in cap-and-gown, focusing your attention on those marvelous snowcapped peaks that we passed on our 2,900-mile round-trip.
Last year, I wrote an article, “Get your Verizon Droid or iPhone before July 7 (2011)” to urge new Verizon customers to act quickly. Now, they’re at it again! Last year, on July 7, Verizon ended the unlimited data plan for new customers. This year (we don’t know exactly when) they will end it for existing customers. Meaning, if you have an unlimited data plan now, when you upgrade your phone and sign a new 2 year contract, you will lose that unlimited data – there will be no ‘grandfather’ rights. They will be implementing tiered and family sharing plans instead. For more details, see this PCWorld Article.
