ooc – life in the wastelands

for those that heard my travel story about the trip to the taos mesa to pick up a car,  here’s the pictures so it did happen, including the guys that broke down on the way to the 420 party. my stoner friends would be so jealous.

what makes it so funny is that i am a devout nonsmoker.

my favorite mesa house was an old school style bus with a big stovepipe chim sticking up through the roof. classic! gotta admire the DIY ethic, something that is near and dear to my personal version of steampunk.

Spread the love

    I really like the picture of the wide open spaces, the “looks like they made their own party” one. Its been too long since I visited that part of the country. Maybe next year….

    My favorite bus conversion was one which was made into a home, set into a forested hillside. It had a bus-sized greenhouse attached and running along the front, and the bedroom was built into the top, reachable from inside by ladder.  Cozy and cheap, as houses go.

      There is a desert in my vicinity, named after a small rat-like dog with frog eyes, that lets me experience that big sky over spartan terrain feeling. Refreshing to the mind and eyes, but I could not abide it too long.

    (( Puts me in mind of a trip to Terlingua, Texas, during the infamous chili cookoff held there. Terlingua, an old cinnabar mine, is a ghost town and ‘artist colony’. Looks very similar. ))
