after working a few days in LA and hanging out on the beach, i decided to check out sequoia on my way back to the bay area. i had done very little research about it and as luck would have it, most of the interesting spots in the national park was covered in snow! it didn’t really occur to me to check for snow given it was california but at 7K feet, snow comes pretty fast and early. anyway, i barely spent a half a day in the national park because i was pretty much unprepared for […]
my first work assignment where i am using the RV as my base station and it’s perfect for an introvert lifestyle. i wasn’t sure how i was going to do it because the RV park was a tad far away from the the work venue but luckily services such as uber/lyft has changed the game for me. being be able to be pick up in an RV park on the beach with all my gear and just giving dropped off (without have to stress about parking and etc), made the job super easy from logistical point of […]

It’s a first come first serve basis so you can basically […]
