How did I get my nick? I left a town north of Monterey, CA for a 3-month business trip (maybe Gilligan would have been more appropriate), then bad things happened and I had to do something ASAP. So I ended up in a small desert town 80 miles east of San Diego, CA. Summer temps from July through October run between 100 and 120 degrees F. I pinch my pennies all year for the day I reach my limit. My doctor is up north, so it's a good excuse to run. So is the heat: the summer population here drops from 10,000 to 2,000. And there's free live music up there.
I love to travel, especially up and down the Calif. coast highway: wind in my hair, my Jack Daniels bandana (on my head, not in it), singing and soaking in the natural beauty for hours and hours. I look for unknown campgrounds, local events, places to eat good food cheap, museums, whatever. I take a day to do whatever I have the energy for: rest, watch the dolphins play; hunt for jade, sun myself on the beach, walk, & enjoy the antics of the wildlife--they get into some hilarious pickles if you're paying attention, though I could have lived without having a skunk land on my pillow while I slept. For some reason, I love to cross the golden gate bridge, then there's a lot more to see on the way to Mendocino. Someday, I want to explore eastern CA--the giant redwoods and rivers there. I need a guitar, a camera, and an RV to complete this picture. I have now outlived the expectations of 4 doctors under difficult circumstances: my dream is to enjoy the rest of my life doing these things leisurely rather than on the fly.
As for the 760, the computer picked that. I have been using 818 wherever I can. 818 means something good to me: traveler818. Can I change that here since we're on the subject or would it be too confusing?
