In the winter of 1985 I was driving through the Mojave Desert with a friend, talking about our apparent need for new river gear. As we passed the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base, a man unexpectedly appeared on the side of the road selling used ammo cans. My friend and I laughed wildly and quickly came to realize that the moment was "All In A Days' Karma". This blog contains the occasional ramblings of a died-in-the-wool westerner who loves seeing, understanding, and being alive upon these landscapes. I cherish the moments of bliss and irony that come to all of us as we explore the planet and its residents (and perhaps visitors) in the short time we are here.

Car and Driver Magazine

Did you know I was featured in an article in Car and Driver magazine? It was actually my second time in the magazine with writer Patrick Bedard using geology themes as a backdrop to the testing of SUV's. You can read the article here.  The "interview" was set near Kingman, Arizona where the middle Miocene (18.5 million year) Peach Springs Tuff makes for a great background for cars.
