Note: If I have posted a link here, please click on it. If I were to try to detail all the features of the area, this post would end up book length. We have a vast preserve out here in SE CA called Mojave National Park. It is a pretty cool place, easily accessed from I-15…Read more Mojave Desert Park
So, one weekend, I was off on another solo trip, this time with Avery the trail dog. The plan was from the Mutau Flats trailhead at about 5200 ft. down an 8.5 mile trail to Sespe Hot Springs, deep within the Sespe Wilderness.

There are a few (mostly - but not exclusively - males) who think of sex in…Read more Sex: The Good and the Bad
