Tips for road trips, car rentals, and vehicular travel of all kinds.
A Cold and Lonely Road
It was 12 years ago today that I stopped for the night in Austin, Nevada unaware that the next day would be the most challenging, miserable and terrifying ride of my life... Now, I cherish every minute of the memory.
A Prologue to an Epilogue
This heart of mine craves adventure that only she can bring me. It’s been too long since we’ve found those endless miles to nowhere, those silent stars glittering in the night sky. Maybe I cursed us with such a name, maybe it was karma for so easily abandoning my past; or perhaps it was just the luck of being handed a giant lemon. No matter, she seems better now. I named her Verona, and only the death of love has followed.
Paul R Johnson
In 1987 through 1989, while I drove for Yukon Alaska Transport, I wrote and published short stories about my times on the road, for the Northern Journal in Whitehorse. We were hauling Lead and Zinc ore from Faro Yukon to the Shipping ore sheds in Skagway Alaska. This was an actual trip and the people are real. Only my Christmas story was partially fiction. Come ride with me as I haul this load of Lead Ore to Skagway Alaska.
My First Car, Patricia
Yes, my first car was and is a 2004 PT Cruiser. Touring Edition, I'm pretty sure. I bought it for $500 in a small town just outside of my already small hometown. For $500 there's got to be a catch, right? Yep! It had rust on the lower sides, a large crack in the windshield, dog hair stuck to the roof of the interior (for good), shitty speakers, no aux, no working AC, missing a few semi-cosmetic parts and it barely ran. Let's not for get, it's a cream-colored PT Cruiser... It was ugly and dysfunctional, and I loved it!
Auto Transport Considerations
We all thought it would be over by now; instead, wearing masks and sanitizing has almost become a new way of life. The far reaching effects have touched every industry, including car shipping companies, many of whom are buckling under the pressures of temporary layoffs which lead to increased unemployment. Supply chain disruptions and the halted production of new vehicles resulted in reduced revenues for 15.6% of vehicle shipping services in 2020.
So, imagine with me being told that you have 48 hours ....... You must leave by a certain date. You must re-home your Dog. Your vehicle is at the mechanic's shop awaiting parts, and awaiting, and awaiting, as if the parts are on a slow boat in the ocean somewhere. And you have tried every thing that you know to do, all the calls, flyers, postings and contacts that are possible in a town you barely know.
Get To Grips With The Rules Of The Road
Cycling is booming in the UK as more people take to the roads to get their daily exercise in England’s third national lockdown. A biking revolution in 2020 coincided with the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, with many novice cyclists taking up the sport to find solace outside their homes.
Can you drive a Ford Fiesta through a desert?
I’m flying down the B1 highway from Windhoek to Keetmanshoop with a map and a boot full of camping gear. I’m excited for the first stop of my Namibian road trip: the Quiver Tree Forest. I spot the sign and turn onto the C17, off the tarmac and onto the gravel. I’ll be there soon; it’s only ten miles or so. I am unprepared for what comes next. The car slides and slips across the road. I am not fully in control anymore. I slow to a crawl. The car judders and shudders, the noise deafening, the vibrations rattling the teeth in my skull. It takes me around an hour to drive the ten miles. I arrive at the campsite relieved to be in one piece, even if it feels like all my bones have been shaken slightly out of place. I will later learn that this is what happens when the gravel road becomes “corrugated”, and that the roads authority goes round once a week to “grade” them. Seems I arrived about 6 days after the grader had last been round.
Where the rubber...
25JAN2021; 0035, MON Pardon the wordplay, but I've been pretty much just jamming out to the living legend, J. Cole for the past couple days. I knew that he had an extensive catalog, and I'm really glad that I chose him to accompany me on the past couple adventures.
