    Growing up on the beaches of north San Diego county in the late 70s and 80s, Van Halen (like Vans sneakers) permeated my world. I can’t quite muster Chuck Klosterman’s enthusiasm for them now — though his wry take goes a long way — but what a fun nostalgia blast. Thanks for sharing this. (PS. Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli were my dream-couple crush. Oh my…)

      YES! I was in that gigantic county just northeast of you around the same time as you (a little later) and it was like they were the soundtrack of my life up until the mid 90’s. Same with Vans. I’m back in my Vans but I haven’t listened to Van Halen in years.

    Some airlines that do the Europe run have shrunken the size of what constitutes carry-on luggage, and they enforce it. Thus, it can be worthwhile to prepay the advance discount rate for a bag, rather than get to the airport and get a surprise with the non-discounted checked bag rate. Measure carefully, because this change is relatively recent.

    The new carry-on is tiny. Since I had to psy anyways, I brought a medium size bag. Not huge. Not carry-on. Too big and the fees skyrocket.

    I ditto Burning Man purgatory. The smell of patchouli oil makes me ill and the thought of no one bathing for days and wearing furry costumes sounds like a bad acid trip. Oh to be young?

    Some friends of mine who attend Burning Man on the regular say that the max they are able to endure the discomfort of the weather and sand is about once every three years.

    Kimmie … my “hearting” is broken again. It could be my issue – maybe something “updated.” Hate that!

    Keep on keepin’ on.

    My idea of purgatory is a trip to Burning Man. (no offense to anyone!!)

    The French Landscape photos are so intriguing! My son is every so slightly color blind and my daughter has difficulty differentiating between shades of certain colors (like green) so how people “see” color has always interested me.

    I have a friend who Burns. As much as you couldn’t pay me to be in hot weather … his friends are very cool and interesting and they have all kinds of actual skills. I would guess they are *not* typical Burners, if I had to. However … if you get a chance to hang out with Burners, without having to actually go out there, *do.* You may get a very pleasant surprise. And, they meet up several times a year locally. Look and you will probably find some near you.
