Wednesday morning, we had breakfast by a crashing roadside waterfall — scrambled eggs and garlic pan-fried potatoes. A few people, seeing the sign in our back window, stopped to congratulate us.
After breakfast and coffee, we headed on to Halfway hot springs, which we’d never previously been to. While wandering around trying to locate the path “down”, we said hello to a couple random hippies — and were surprised to realize we knew these hippies. It was Tarzie, and her husband and baby. I’ve known Tarzie for years through the Calgary Burner community! An awesome surprise to find them by

Apologies for the abrupt stop of blog entries somewhere through our Burning man trip… We didn’t get Internet access again on the trip, and then got caught-up in the non-travel universe once we got home.
It got put off. For months. Again, apologies. So now, some updates.
The rest of our Burning man trip was amazing. To me, it was the best of all my 4 Burns. It was really windy/dusty/stormy for a lot of it — but I can’t complain, the extreme climate is part of what I love about

I’m sorry we’re posting without a photo yet again… But sometimes half is better than nothing. Our maiden voyage in Ziggy is going well.
We left Calgary on Friday night around 7pm, and headed for Cranbrook. We camped at Norbury Lake, about 30km shy of Cranbrook.
This morning we headed into Cranbrook to buy the max amount of beer we could take over the border (24 cans each) — because Canadian beer tends to be a hot commodity at Burning man. We also bought an extra battery and a solar panel at Canadian Tire, and then hit Timmy’s one last time,

This past weekend, Brian and I had tickets to the No Doubt concert in Vancouver.
We originally planned to spend a good long weekend there, visiting Brian’s mom in White Rock, and hanging out in and around the GVA. However, when it came down to buying flights (admittedly recently — last week), we decided that we needed a day at home for house/yard work reeeeally badly, and decided to devote our Fridays off to that.
So on Friday we mowed the lawn and weeded

Alright, I know I was doing really well, posting every day, even with some pictures. But then nothing for day 4 or 5! I apologize. It’s amazing how hard it can be to make time on a vacation where you really have no plans or commitments. Ha!
So, where I left off we were in Nakusp for the night. The next morning (Saturday), we wandered around Nakusp a little bit. Had breakfast in The Middle Earth Cafe (which was AWESOME) and then wandered down to the little farmer’s market, then along the beach for a while. Sadly,
