Well I tend to meander throughout life and just find interesting places and roadside oddities as well as areas natural beauty. Yesterday, I got a taste of all 3. I was wandering around the high desert with my cousin. I got to see the worlds largest freestanding rock correctly called ‘Giant Rock’

Some guy in the1920’s built his house that was a 20×20 area in the ground underneath Giant Rock and it made me wonder if that is where the expression ‘Do you live under a rock?’ came from.
He sold the property to a man that made an airport in the desert next to giant rock and was visited by extraterrestrials and they helped him to build the Integratron. Score!!! I love these kinds of things. Now the Integratron is a retreat center.

Then we went to pioneer town where many western movies and TV program were shot but it’s also a real town with people that have houses that live there.

What happens when an upbeat, sociable, single, empty nester in midlife, outdoor enthusiast, critter gal, science geek, history buff, treasure hunter with an addiction to brown signs and the wanderlust, embarks on a 4 month road trip in her Chevy pickup truck, loaded with a tent, kayak, bicycle, 5 changes of clothes, her laptop, and cell phone, by herself, that essentially turned into a fulltime lifestyle?
