I'm halfway!

May 19th, 2007 · No Comments

Halfway through Canada, that is. Which puts me through all the cities and farms and factories and into the beautiful country. The slow down and enjoy it part. Except that the more it looks like home the more I just keep driving and driving. I love Alaska and I miss it so much. I don’t […]

Which crusty old stripper archetype am I?

May 19th, 2007 · 3 Comments

I’ve noticed lately that some people think of me as an old time veteran stripper, and I have been dancing for, well, longer than I’d like to admit. It got me thinking tho… you know those “What ____ are you?” quizzes that are all over the internet? Well, what old stripper archetype am I? (Old […]

How to pee when you live in a van.

May 18th, 2007 · 21 Comments

Only because everybody asks. Some people have toilet set ups of varying comlicatedness (bucket, anti-stink bag, sawdust, kitty litter, grey tanks, black tanks, who knows what else), and when I lived in a bus I had a sawdust composting toilet that I loved. But I live in a van now, and really people, it’s just […]

I'm in Canada!

May 16th, 2007 · No Comments

Getting into Canada last year, in the bus, was a huge ordeal. For a couple days people would come up to us every time we stopped and say, “you going through Canada in that? You’re gonna have a hard time getting across the border.” I wasn’t worried about the bus. We didn’t have anything to […]

Late night email from a friend: “Have you already left? Is it too late for me to still come to Alaska with you? I can fly there tomorrow morning.” Me: “No, I can backtrack and pick you up.” Her: “Cool, I’ll be at the airport tomorrow at noon.” Except she wasn’t. So I’ve spent the […]

North to Alaska

May 14th, 2007 · No Comments

It’s such an epic journey for so many that I think it’s permanently stuck that way in the collective unconcious. I remember, as a kid, riding the schoolbus in Fairbanks. When I ran out of books to read I would press my face against the window and make up stories about the people who lived […]

No phone, postal system, and North to Alaska!

May 13th, 2007 · No Comments

At first there was a little panicky feeling. I can’t call anyone. What if something happened? Also my phone is the only thing that always has the right time. I mean, I have not a clue what time zone the van clock is in. It says 5:30 now, but is it 5:30 in California or […]

Woops.

May 12th, 2007 · No Comments

I was playing by the river with Bro. I’ve always been really paranoid about letting him swim in the river, because once he was swimming in the river and the way the sun was glinting confused/blinded him and he was just kind of floating away/swimming in circles. So I never let him swim in the […]
