Get Outta Town

Last year for a mini-vacation around this time we drove up to Carmel and had an awesome time coming down Highway 1. For this year’s edition of an extended Labor Day excursion we’re leaving our zoo in the very capable hands of DogGone Walkin’ pet sitters, hopping in our new Ford Escape this morning and going to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park for the first time.

Serious tree-hugging to follow.

Hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend.

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."
