What are you reading?


Well, I just finished a very interesting book which I thought I would share. It is not about Baja, but it is about survival against all odds.

The name of the book is THE ICE MASTER by Jennifer Niven. It is based on a ship adventure to the Arctic way back 1913-14.

It is fast but intense reading.

So... what are you reading?





Come visit La Bocana

Reading a stack of old Sunset Magazines.

Just started listening to Amy Tan's Valley of Amazement after accidentally purchasing the audio book of Ulysses for the second time thinking I need to know this classis piece of literature, only to again be unable to get much of a way into it before preferring to water the yard in silence.

Makes you want to drive right down to Copper Canyon and pitch a tent, doesn't it?

Copper Canyon's allure has decreased somewhat lately....I have followed motorcycle trip reports for CC for past 12 years.....and have gained a good sense of what it has to offer.

Friends were robbed of their motos there this past winter (same time mine was stolen/returned in San Felipe)....got all but one bike back....escorted out of canyon by policia "muy rapido".

One guy has the whole robbery on GoPro :O :biggrin: :no: :cool:

I was being facetious. I wouldn't go to Copper Canyon in a Sherman Tank.

"Being facetious" was an assumption I made.....

Sherman, the tank, said, "And no way I would want Dennis along for the trip....." :biggrin:


But doing some research....maybe it would be a good idea....

"Camp and Camino in Lower California 1908-1910" by Arthur North......talk about hard core camping! Just finished Leonard Wibberley's "Yesterday's Land" a good retro tour of the northern peninsula in 1959 by truck.
Ulysses? Actually made it through that, don't ask me how or test me on it though :lol:

Blanca u have such interesting posts! I see why the children clearly love being guided/coached by you .. u inspire thought and feelings ..

Right now am reading Draft #2 of Tommy's Story by Joyce Spizer Foy ... Its our version of Clint Eastwood's "Million Dollar Baby" which I heard tell it took him 25 yrs to complete the project - which was very successful for him after all. Am hoping to have similar results with our labor of love ..

Recently read Jeanette Walls "Half Broke Horses" which was excellent, and Mitch Albom's "For One More Day" which was also excellent.

Thanks for asking! Lori
