Photo: Sparks Marina

My current home base, Sparks Marina RV Park. It’s probably the fanciest RV park I’ve ever stayed in, the pads are concrete and level, the grass is fake and immaculate year round, and the bathrooms get cleaned twice a day. I wouldn’t pay for something like this myself but since Amazon is footing the bill… […]

Water in the Desert

Last Saturday the 27th, the park closed down for the second time in three weeks due to flooding. It rained somewhere in the neighborhood of two inches that day, which is a huge deal for a desert. Again, the Trading Post flooded and the mop had to be kept handy all day for repeated clean […]

Zion National Park, UT

After three days of working at Trading Post (pictured) I finally get to go inside Zion, although it teases me from the bluff overlooking the campground on a daily basis. On my first day I took a quick hike up this bluff and get a shot of park of the campground from above, and also […]

Visiting Family

Last week was for relaxation and reconnecting with family. After festival last weekend, I drove the short 20 minutes to the Atlanta Airport where I reluctantly left Bertha to the mercies of long term parking and hopped a plane to Minneapolis, MN. No really, it was as easy as that, I’ve never had a flight […]

Exploring Atlanta

Despite what it might seem, my time here in Fairburn hasn’t been all job applications and festival merriment. I have managed to sneak away a time or two around preparing for the next adventure to further explore the Atlanta area. If you should happen to visit, here are two things I might recommend. Last week […]
