Another fun weekend camping near Guerneville, CA

Our third time camping with fellow VW CamperFamily friends at our annual May weekend event at Schoolhouse Canyon Park near Guerneville.
It was as lovely as ever. Will post more pictures soon, especially those taken around the camp fire!

 

Days 2-3: 16-17 December 2009 at Heart Song House, Ashland

Remembering this moment all those years ago in December 2009, as I read about Pamala Joy today after meeting online another Ashland lady and new Vintage VW friend 🙂
Life is made up of wonderful moments of synchronicity and sometimes we notice them !

The 'YesWeCan' Journey ... driving, exploring, making others smile and educating while we go!

Past two days have been resting at Earth Song House, enjoying Ashland and test driving the VW Westfalia.

Pamala Joy, my host, and I have discovered some areas of mutual interest and connection: we both care for the environment, reduce our use of water and electricity, and we also both trained with Chloe Wordsworth in holographic repatterning.

Pamala has won several awards for her volunteering work in feeding about 1000 people in need in Southern Oregon. She founded the Food Angels, an organization that now has 60 volunteers who pack and deliver food to homes in the area. I filmed Gretchen, a volunteer, talking about their work and the kinds of fresh foods that they provide.

In season were persimmons, a delicious fruit. The day before I had seen boxes of them delivered. To see the video of Gretchen go to our Facebook Fan Page for the YesWeCan…

An afternoon out in the sun after a wet, wet winter

Beautiful scenery around Clear Lake, and quiet roads make for wonderful VW touring country, though to get here you will probably encounter a few challenging gradients and tight hairpin bends 🙂

As you can see the result is well worth the effort!

YesWeCanJourney Blog Visitors

The chart below shows the number of views per month since I started this blog, from the time I first collected my wonderful 1971 VW Westfalia from Oregon in December 2009. Little did I know then that The YesWeCan CamperVan would carry me through so many miles in such a short space of time. 14,000 miles over two years, including only nine months on the road, is pretty awesome, isn’t it?

Yet the performance of this blog, in terms of numbers of visitors, by no means matches my VW.

Statistics for YesWeCanJourney.Wordpress.com - monthly number of views

So I am asking you to please share your opinions via the comment box below … or on our Facebook page in the Note on Blog performance about what you’d like to see more of on these pages and the topics that interest you most. Or maybe it’s not so much the content as the medium that you prefer e.g. less words, more photos, or more videos?

Would sure appreciate your input.

Thank you.

 

Special conversations for Thanksgiving

Please take a look here for an interesting conversation to be had at Thanksgiving …. http://thinkingleaders.wordpress.com/2011/11/23/engage-with-grace-this-thanksgiving-holiday/

Ten years on …

Ten years since September 11th, 2001. When it happened many of us thought it would change our lives forever, help us to remember what is most important in life and treat each other far better as a result, didn’t we?

How odd then that during the last decade here in the west, the news has been filled with stories in which greed has prevailed or stories of how very poor we are these days now they we don’t have such big earnings or big homes or the material riches we once had. Stories of con tricks by certain people or certain corporations, criticism of governments and civil unrest, and news of more wars and killings fill the media.

Maybe it’s time to stop today on this tenth anniversary of September 11th and reflect on the best things that have happened in the last ten years and anything we did that brought love and hope into the world.

Please add your reflections and make a comment below to bring some light into this world. Thank you.
