Trip to California! Yippee!

Post by terrydec on Wed May 10, 2017 2:23 pm

Tonight, I am taking a bus to Chicago. There I will board the California Zepher for a rocking 2 day ride across America. When I reach the end there will be a car waiting to take me to my friend's boat in Sausalito. Three days and four nights on the water, no phones or computers allowed. I can't wait. More later.

Well, well, well...what a trip, in every sense of the word.

I got interviewed for a German Documentary, which pretty much made me known to most of the other riders. Someone gave me a free blanket and another person paid for my breakfast. I told my stories to people and generally sent out a lot of positive energy. My website got over a hundred hits. I got to attend a recording session of one of my Larry Digger stories. All in all an amazing experience.

More photos of my trip to San Francisco.  I lived in that building.  It was the first commune in the Haight area.  One night we got busted.  The article in the next day's Chronicle included a photo of the 'Jesus looking' beatnik.  Also in that article the word 'hipster', turned into 'hippy'.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

What a nice trip and great experience and thanks for the pictures Terry. While you were having fun back in the 60's, I was suffering through college!
Best, Jerry
