DeeVeeFeever — Catch It!

With steaks grilling on the barbecue yesterday afternoon, my Susan came up with an excellent plan. A couple days earlier I’d mentioned November was coming and since I needz me some Death Valley at least once a year and had yet to go get some in 2008, of course that should totally mean a quick out-and-back trip  like we did last year to Eureka Dunes.

My thoughts were to head out same as we did in 2007 around the Veterans Day weekend… driving out Friday night and coming back Sunday morning — literally a 24-hour turnaround’er. But Susan said, how about this: since we’re not traveling outta state this time around, why not have dinner at our house on Turkey Day and then drive out Friday morning with them-there dawgs to the dunes and come back Sunday morning.

“That’s brilliant!” I said.

And this time, unlike my first two visits, I’m trekking to the top of the sandpile!

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
