Diving at Big Corn Island, Nicaragua

Off the beaten path with Pirate Chema.

A vertical sign written out in white seashells stated we had reached the dive shop destination. It was with some reluctance that I shuffled up to the two-story weatherbeaten building. My last resort dive had ...

Check out Pageant of the Masters, Sawdust Festival and Art-a-Fair through the end of August.

Why Ukraine: nighttime Kiev and protests

Part 2 in a series – reports from a nation in conflict.

June 6, 2014 - Ok, so my first 12 hours here in Kiev were, umm... interesting. I remember looking up at a sign in the airport reading “Red Zone” and thinking it was a USSR ...

Fredericksburg, VA: America's most historic city

Civil War tours, a presidential heritage, distilleries and much more.

The Interstate 95 (aka I-95) is the main highway on the East Coast, running parallel to the Atlantic Ocean seaboard on a north-south trajectory and serving as the principal artery for cities from Florida to ...

Why Ukraine?

First in a series: reports from a nation in conflict.

Before we start, let’s stop: it’s not THE Ukraine, it’s Ukraine. Obama apparently learned this last year. Admittedly I didn’t know this until recently, but I'm not the Prez. And oh yeah, the capital (Kiev) ...

Sixty miles to El Capitan Reservoir and back

East County standouts on this 4-5 hour cycling trip.

I recently had a nice, cool day off for a leisurely and minimally hilly bike ride that doesn't involve the super-flat Mission Bay or San Diego Bay. Where else to go but to follow the ...
