This my friends, is What I am Talking About.
I just got to say - google - brings travel planning to a whole other level. I just love it. You see, I just want to drive. I want to drive in the hot desert and stop whenever we feel like it. I want to take high contrast black and white photos. I want the road to look like this. Our original destinations was to head south to San Diego along the coast and then over to Tuscon and Phoenix. but once i took a look at the roads - which turned out to be interstates and suburban multi-lane hellscapes, the route quickly changed. Death Valley, Mojave, and the Grand Canyon are calling now. Some of the roads aren't even paved.
That Is What I am Talking About.
Anyhay, I have much to do before said trip next Saturday, including catching up on my chores, watching Spartacus with the Wren and traveling-light-like-Clint Eastwood-packing:
- 2 pairs of jeans,
- 2 white undershirts,
- 2 black t-shirts,
- 1 long sleeve cotton snap up
- a light cotton skirt,
- something warm for the cold nights,
- Pentax K-1000 and 2 rolls of Ilford HP4 150
- music, preferably with banjos,
- a sleeping bag
- and 1 hammock*
* Ok...so maybe the lack of trees in the desert will impede my hammocking potential...damn.
