Coachella and the introvert

I have adopted the introvert moniker, but I don’t know if that is the correct label. I guess it sounds much better than “guy that is content in his own world and doesn’t give a fuck about what other people think”. 😛

Now that is not meant to be hostile. I actually do love people. I just have a low bullshit tolerance.

Having said that, I also love music, so Coachella would seem to be a great festival to explore new music. And… it did not disappoint.

360° View: Lake Havasu Campsite

 April 5-11, 2017

 Lake Havasu City, Arizona (34.423, -114.19799)

View Location on Google Maps

 As I drove along Highway 95, I found several spot where people had set up camp. I chose this spot because it was relatively close to the city (~10 miles), yet far enough out to feel like and camper and not a tourist. This location is close to the road, so you will encounter a bit of noise. Still, it is not offensive. There were a couple of bumps along the way, but nothing too severe.

This land is NOT your land or my land?

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters
This land was made for…

OK… it looks like this land may not be YOUR land or MY land.

When I started my journey three months ago, this is what the U.S. Department of the Interior’s website looked like…

The site was informative and contained specific information about the location of BLM lands.

Patience… Please


Over the next week or so, I will be reposting some of the photosphere images you may have seen on other posts. I am doing this because I would like to create a page for each location, so that other viewers will be accurately to find each spot.

I will continue to upload these images to Google Maps. However, and unfortunately, Google no longer allows these 360° images to be placed in their exact location within their map. Instead, these images have to be placed in an existing location, or a new location has to be created… and Google has denied the creation of many of the places I have suggested.

So… my answer is to create a new page and map of 360° views. Each entry on the map will include a link to the corresponding page. Each page will include the 360° image, GPS coordinates, Google Maps link, and other goodies.

So… patience… please.
