In Crescent City on a Greyhound bus. Found a cool play structure in the shape of a ship to play on for a few hours.

My car broke down outside of Santa Fe and there was only one business open, a saloon. Stranded for six hours, I met some kind people and was invited to stay at an artist’s studio, but he was quite creepy.

Magdalena Bay, Baja California. Stuck in a dry lake bed and rescued by some Baja fisherman.

In Calexico, there was a bus mix-up and I was on my way to Arizona and I was 100 feet from the border stop checkpoint. I slept in a six-foot by six-foot cardboard box outside a loading dock.

Grants Pass in Oregon. My engine blew up so I hitchhiked to the nearest town and rebuilt the engine on the side of the road.
