My morning walk

Black Bear
I wish my brain was functioning a little quicker this morning during my walk. My walking trail takes me through an underpass so I don't have to cross the busy road. The sun hadn't risen yet but it was plenty light enough outside, more so than I was normally starting out in the mornings. As I approached the tunnel I saw a shadowy movement. I stopped, it stopped.

My First Dronie

My First Aerial Photo/Video
While boondocking near Borrego Springs, CA, I had a chance to experiment with my new 3DR Iris+ drone "quadcopter". One of the features of this system is the ability to make a quick "dronie".

Alaska Adventure - Weeks 11, 12 and 13

From our last post we were still in Fairbanks for another 5 days. We didn't sit around doing nothing, we knew of some Boomer RV friends who were coming into Fairbanks and we arranged a trip to Chena Hot Springs, which is about 50 miles northeast of Fairbanks (July 29). This was one of my must see and do items on our Alaska trip. We started off our visit purchasing our tickets for their Ice Museum....
