Title: I'll Call This One...Storms on the Horizon

I feel like an artist getting to name his works.  I'll call this one - Storms on the Horizon...(original eh?)   8)

Title: You Are An Artist....

Every time your eye sees something and you feel compelled to photograph it, you are an artist.......David is an artist for creating this site for us......hell, we all are artist's here in one way or another for appreciating the beauty of BB and capturing it for not just ourselves but to share with all of those who would appreciate. I still like the "appliance table display" from your gallery on the Kodak site!

Take a deep breath, what do you smell?  The smell of a desert rain brewing.  The wind is picking up some.  Smell the desert air full of cactus, etc.  Smell the desert floor - the sand and gravel.  Smell the smell of rain on the horizon and the ozone from the thunder and lightning.  FEEL the breeze blowing through your jacket - oops, your hat just blew off in a gust.  Better retreat to the tent and button it up - hear the sound of the wind rattling the tent or camper.  Good time for a nap!

Ah yes, what would the early pioneers say to having a toaster oven, coffee pot, electric fry pan, etc.  Plus, a Honda 3000watt Generator to power it all.  When we MASHed over to BBNP we went dry camping just fine w/o the generator using standard Coleman stove - even though the Honda 3000 is "whisper quiet" we didn't crank it up.

Title: Cuisinart brewer

I like the brew station as it doesn't have any glass decanters to break - ah, the horror!  No coffee due to broken decanter!  How will we survive?  Actually, on this last adventure I was afraid I'd have no coffee in the mornings as we were not running the power plant and didn't have a "backup" coffee maker for the stove - the HORROR.  Fortunately my camping buddy, even though he doesn't drink coffee, had some folgers instant coffee-bags for me - he keeps them on hand to get the scout leaders rousted out of bed.  (And He says that I plan for all contingencies - yea, he saved my life with those coffee packets)
