Big Bear!

So we have made it over 250 miles!! Pretty amazing when I think about it.....kind of crazy we have walked that far. It has been great thus far. I am loving it. Though we are about to go into the really hot desert section so...But here are some photos from this last bit

Our very dirty clothes. We had to fill the tub like 4 times to get the water to not get to that dark brown color. Amazing how dirty things get in the desert

Photobucket
And I did not realize we had to watch out for....

Photobucket
Killer Trees!!!

We woke up one morning in the clouds. So we packed up and started walking and we got to this boulder field that was amazing! The clouds were rolling in and then they would start to retreat and then come in again....we sat and ate breakfast there. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip thus far as it was gorgeous!

Photobucket
It was amazing. The ground was just like one big rock with boulders on it. Absolutely gorgeous!

Photobucket
I also didn't realize I had to watch out for cheerleaders.....

Photobucket
And squirrels.....there are so many dangers out there I never thought about before we left :)

Photobucket
Outside of Idyllwild we ran into our first snow...but Raymond took care of that :)

Photobucket
It is a hard hard life we have out on the trail....

Photobucket
Raymond's backpack is a magnet for small birds...when we stop to take a break they flock

Photobucket
More snow in the San Jacinto Wilderness

The first night out of Idyllwild we camped on Fuller Ridge above the clouds. It was gorgeous!

Photobucket
Above the clouds. It was awesome

Photobucket
We are sooo dirty. And walking through Mesa wind farm

Photobucket
Whitewater canyon was gorgeous as well. Lots of water flowing with tadpoles in it.

Photobucket
Cooling off in Mission Creek (our hottest day we have had thus far. The water was sooo cold and felt sooo good)

Photobucket
There are a lot of burned areas with cool burned trees

Photobucket
Mission Creek Canyon was super hot....but had a ton of beautiful flowers. The walls of the canyon were covered with purple flowers. It was awesome

Photobucket
We got to Big Bear this morning and had a HUGE breakfast. It was so good.

We are in Big Bear now and it seems like we should be able to upload our audio tonight so it should be up shortly! And we are heading out tomorrow afternoon. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

Railay Beach, Thailand - Day 1

  Getting to Railay Beach from Bangkok kind of takes forever. We had taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thai where we had to switch to a bus to take us to Krabi. I slept much better on the train that night. I had put in my earplugs and only woke up a few times. It was great. I woke up around 6 and was ready to go. Raymond was just like you are so wakey! I was just like yeah - I actually slept! So I was all refreshed and ready to go.    We had picked up some banana muffins in Bangkok for breakfast, as well as leftovers from our feast the night before, and the muffins were delicious! We should have gotten more of them than we did. So we got to Surat Thani and had to switch to a bus like I said. It was a bit confusing where we should go and what was going on, but we got on the bus and it took us into Surat Thani Town. That bus was really nice so I thought the trip to Krabi would be great. Only we had to wait a bit and switch buses and the new bus, the one that took us

The First Two Weeks

From In Berlin Hello! So I have been here just over 2 weeks now which is a bit crazy and things are finally coming together. I really like our apartment. Lots of room and it is very quiet as we are a block off the main road. We finally got some furniture last week so the place is not as empty and we actually have chairs to sit on and a bed to sleep in (that is not the noisy air mattress). I even have my craft table set up, but I am still looking for storage for my fabrics and such (the ones I wanted were out of stock). Yesterday I sewed up curtains for the front windows so we can have the privacy blinds (big metal blinds that come down and cover the front windows and are on most of the ground floor windows around town) up and Raymond won't freak out that people can see in.The bedroom/my craft room is pretty much done. The back of the house gets much better light during the day so I set up shop back there to take advantage of it. If I worked in the front rooms I would need the

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn insta
