MAKE SURE TO SEE AS IT STANDS TOMORROW. It's about lead poisoning in American homes. Are you safe? Was your home built before 1976? If so, you better read this column, and be prepared for a shock!

Well... blogger buddies and any other visitors who may stop in to take a snoop today, I thank you for stopping by. I'll be back home on Monday and will post a New Blog (with the usual bell and whistles) sometimes Monday afternoon.

I'll take the weather in Humboldt anyday! I's been so hot and dry down here that my sinus's are dried up and I'm getting an occassional nosebleed. The sheer mass of people everywhere I've been this last five or six days is overwhelming!

Talk about road rage. Yikes! I've seen several bad accidents and drivers that post speeds of 100 mph or more on the freeway (and some surface streets in Hemet and San Jacinto. In my travels I noticed that someone has built houses right next to the Parris Lake Dam. Talk about stupid and greedy.

That seems to be the story for city planners down here. They build wherever, fault lines be damned, and they get away with it. Just another case of a crumbling infrastructure.

I can't wait to get home and dial this blog back in!

Winds and whiskey

The winds down here have been very strong and the wildfires continue to rage.
My Dad and I polished a bottle of good whiskey off the other night.

The clues I gave earlier have been referring to SAN BERNARDINO.

Gave yourself a gold star if you got it. Since then I have been hopping around most of southern California and going to too many places to list here.

It's been fun, but I'm already longing to come home. Humboldt is my paradise.

I didn't watch the debate last night because I'm burned out with both parties rhetoric. I wish this race were over.

I'm back again....

I'm still about 700 miles from home.
The winds down here have been very strong.

The county I'm in is the largest one in California and close to being the largest county in America.

That famous Route 66 runs through this county.

I'm already thinking about coming home and I have six days left down here! I'm use to being in my bunker communicating with the world via my computer, so I'm really out of my comfort zone right now.

My biggest challenge is my PTSD. I have trouble being around lots of people, and the traffic down here stresses me to the max. I am trying to let others do the driving while I'm here. It's just one of the precautions that I'm taking.

Most people don't have any idea what people with PTSD go through daily. The challenges are many and varied depending where I'm at.

That's about all for today. Thanks for visiting today, and I'll be doing a lot of updating when I get home. Meanwhile, don't be shy...take a look around and check out the archives for this blog and the other sources I've provided.

Hello blogger buddies and other visitors!

I'm somewhere in the state of California. (Ah heck...Southern California).

Wyatt Earp retired in this city not long after it was formed.

Two words.

That's it for now, I've got things to do. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you here later.
