I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

A chaotic hodgepodge of too many ill proportioned mountains crowded too close together. Sorry God, nice try, but, it looks like the storage room for movie sets. I did get some nice photos and have many more to post.
Two small encounters; a twenty-something fellow offered me a seat on the park shuttle bus. "You are being very nice, now I will have to kick your ass" is what I didn't say. It was more like, "Thanks, I'm ok."
