Pot stores in Massachusetts

Next week will have 2 recreational weed stores opening in MA, the first on the East Coast. MA has spent 2 years talking about this since legalization, and they ended up with the model the other states have adopted. Apparently they like talking about things a lot.

Things will go well. The media coverage (look […]

Life in Quartzsite

It’s quiet, warm and sunny, and the sunrises and sunsets are amazing. Not a lot of people around, though some show up everyday. Vendors are just now starting to open up. I like it this way here.

My plan is to go to Yuma early next week, where I’ll do some train watching until the […]

Pot: Now it’s time for the feds

With the House flipped, committee memberships and leadership change dramatically, almost always for the better in the case of cannabis. Bills to address the marijuana situation have been filed, some for several years, but haven’t got any committee action. So those are ready to go.

A significant obstructionist was Pete Sessions (TX), but he got […]

On to Quartzsite

I’ve spent some time near Tombstone/Sierra Vista, and will now head to Q. That’ll give me a nice long drive to listen to election results.

Marijuana issues and candidates are my main interest. Michigan should pass a full-blown legalization measure. North Dakota has it on the ballot, but I doubt it will pass. However, ND […]

Willcox, AZ

I finally left Deming, night temperatures are dropping a bit. High on my list was a stop in Willcox for some BBQ, but the restaurant had a fire last May and isn’t re-opened yet. So I’ve got one night at one of my favorite rv spots, Cattlestop RV. Since I’m the only one here, it […]

Interesting experience in Deming

A distant relative of mine who I met when he was an infant, tracked me down to interview me on camera about the story of my mom and dad. He graduated with a degree in documentary-making (or something similar) and wanted to work on this story. So he flew to Denver and then chased me […]

Deming Tomorrow

I’ve had two weeks of rain, thunderstorms, snow, below-freezing temperatures, and almost constant cloud cover. Each of those have been mitigated lately as I work my way south and down in elevation. But as I got to Santa Fe, the wind kicked up and high-wind warnings were announced. I’m getting really sick of this crap.


Canada Legalizes

Everyone will be made aware Canada legalizes pot this week. As in not being jailed for possession, not as in readily available from legal outlets. BC, which I’m most familiar with, will only have one store open on the 17th, that in Kamloops. Not to worry, BCers know how to cope with this issue.

This […]

And still…

There was a lot of snow and it was cold (21F), so I hang on for yet another day. Primarily because I have a pass in front of me 3000 feet higher than I am. Tomorrow it will just as cold, but the skies will be sunny and the snow melted away today. There might […]

Still in Pueblo West

I got caught in a pincher. Very cold air from the north would have pushed me quickly to the south. But a wet disturbance was coming from the south. I was trapped.

So tomorrow it snows here, anything from a dusting to a foot. On Monday the sun will come out and I’m heading south […]
