Ocean View Campsite on PCH


  1. I am so enjoying your trip...your posts often bring back memories of many summers when a friend and I hit the road each in my van as the school year ended, traveling until it was time for school to resume in early fall. When I read of your thoughts and activities I often laugh or nod my head in understanding. The feeling of living at your own pace, day to day is unbelieveable. Steve recorded some great "traveling tapes" for me during that time and I still relive the feeling when I hear those songs.
    Take care....... (Kim's mom)

  2. I love Plaskett Creek!

  3. @Laurie - Thanks for following along! That's so fantastic that you and your friend took those trips! And pretty sweet that Steve made traveling tapes for you. It's amazing how much music is tied to memory.

    @Rachel - Yeah, Plaskett Creek was beautiful. Our campsite was under a huge old tree. Just perfect.

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!

DIY Wort Chiller

We here at Curious Souls H.Q. are always looking for ways to save a buck or two. So, when shopping around online for a wort chiller for home brewing, we found the following prices: $65 @ Midwest (plus shipping) $70 @ Northern (plus shipping) $39 @ Amazon (plus shipping) So, off to the hardware store... 3/8" (internal diameter) Vinyl Tubing (10 feet) = $4.15 Sink to hose adapter (varies based on your type of sink) = $4.79 3/8" X 20' Copper Tubing = $24.13 Vinyl Hose Coupler = $2.49 Hose clamps (x2)  = $1.70 Band-aids (x2 or x3 or x4) = $1.00 For a total of $38.26 (pre-tax, no shipping), we decided to roll our own. Here's how it went down... ( vid link ) And, of course, there is the joy of having made something all by yourself! Priceless & fun!
