Here's a quick update on what I've been up to since my February posting:
• explored Slab City and the Salton Sea in California
• explored Joshua Tree National Park
• partied in Las Vegas for PMA
• parked on the beach for 21 days in Los Angeles
• visited friends in New York city for a while (the bus stayed in LA)
• presented seminars in NY, TX, CAx3, MA, MN, CA (again), GA, Iceland, PA
• parked on the top of a mountain with a 360° view for about a week in CA
• visited a bunch of high school friends, college friends and new friends while visiting Minneapolis (where I grew up)
• Explored Iceland for a short time… was going to shoot it from the air, but the weather did not cooperate
• continued shopping for a vintage bus and actually found the original bus from the movie RV (see photo above). If I don't win an auction on a vintage bus in Indianapolis this week, then I might end up with the bus shown above.
• shopped for a vintage car to replace my jeep… right now it looks like I'll end up with either a 1956 or 1967 four door Chevy wagon
The bus has been parked in California all winter (except for a short trip to Arizona). Now that winter is done, I've moved out of California and am heading to Maine (just a short drive). I should be updating this blog more often now that I'm moving around more and taking more photos. Let me know if you have any suggestions for what to see on the East coast.
Ben…nice to see you posting again and to hear about your adventures over the last couple of months.
Man…those vintage buses look so cool. What are they like on the inside?
Can you tell me what happened to your HDR book? I was really looking forward to it since I am starting to explore HDR and Amazon cancelled my order at the last minute. My face = 🙁
Good to see you back Ben!
Welcome back to the blog Ben. Happy travels 🙂
I wholly expected to read about the disappearance of massive quantities of sushi in SLO just before your departure from the left coast. Happy trails. @;–) S
That is a sweet bus!
I think a trip down US1 from Maine to Key West would be cool… similar to your exploration of Route 66.
well, you’ve done lots of things! good for you:) you know, many people like to travel, want to see smth new and interesting. personally I’d like that too. still, having no time or because of other reasons they never do it (I usually just download all the photos and articles or travel guides by http://www.picktorrent.com search engine and even that makes me happy) but you are eager to put your ideas into reality and you do it. thanks for giving us suh a positive example.
