May 19, 2004 - Leaving LA

Leaving Los Angeles: May 19th I left to London with nothing but a backpack filled with snacks, clothes, some neccessities, and my camera. I only took two pairs of black sandals, a hat, a week's worth of clothes, some books including Let's Go! Europe, and not much else. I wasn't nervous at the airport, I am not sure I fully comprehended what I was doing - that is getting on a plane to a place I had never been with only my first three nights booked. What fun. Well, here we go!!!!

Apr 17, 2004 - LA: 15 minutes of fame before a 15 hour plane

I've left the Bay Area, but not California. I'm in LA for my niece's christening, and I've already sighted a few stars. First, at Oakland airport, William Hung was behind me in line B of the Southwest cattle call to LAX. I didn't realize who he was until people started asking for his autograph. Someone took his picture and he told everybody to buy his new album. I'm sure they're selling it in the airport gift shop. The next night, I went out for Chinese food with my family and the table next to us was populated entirely by character actors....

Apr 15, 2004 - One day to go - Los Angeles

I arrived in LA early this evening on the first leg of my journey around the world. The participants of the Great Escape 2004 will be meeting for the first time tomorrow afternoon at the Hilton Airport Hotel. My last e-mail from the organizers, Bill Chalmers and Pamela Finnmark, only adds to the mystery of this trip. The e-mail reads, "Be ready to leave the hotel at 3:00 PM for an undisclosed location to meet fellow competitors in this Global Scavenger Hunt and to go over the rules and regulations and the "spirit" of the contest. This will...

Nov 14, 2003 - Departure

We discussed at length the pros and cons of joining an established RV caravan group vs. just going on our own. The decision really came down to timing; the window we had to make the trip and the itineraries offered. We made the decision to go on our own and then researched companies who rented RVs. We readily found a variety of rental choices, picked one and booked a unit from home. We had also talked to a number of people who had made the trip to both Australia and New Zealand. The almost unanimous opinion was if they had had to decide in...

Aug 25, 2003 - Los Angeles and Disneyland

It was very hot arriving in LA and we were very jet lagged. When we went to pick up our hire car Bernie got chewing gum all over himself from the seat.One of those hideous moments. We were not impressed but we ended up with a huge Buick. We drove straight to Anaheim to do what every one says you "must" do when you go to LA and that is to visit Disneyland. We delayed for a couple of days so that we didn't feel too sleepy and then made the pilgrimage. What can I say? "The happiest place on earth" sure makes people look miserable! However we...

Jun 13, 2003 - One year on the Road - We're goin' to Disneyland

What is it about Disneyland that makes everyone feel like a kid? Is it the upbeat, happy music? The Disney characters? The wonder of the little smiles on grandchildren's faces? The perfectly maintained, hassle free grounds? The fairytale rides? -- I think it may be all of those things. No matter how many times you've been there, there is always something more to see, another laugh to be enjoyed, and more pictures to be taken. Mist greeted us for our morning assault on Disneyland. Amy had her list of agenda items for the day -- we just...
