    We took a right at the town of Harshaw and immediately ran into a bunch of Private Property signs. There are some really nice adobe ruins in the area. The PP signs were on the side of the road, but...

    On another semi-funny note, I had to really pee when we got there. I shot out of the Jeep, found a nearby tree and let loose. It wasnít until we were leaving and I backed out of my parking area that...

    Flux Canyon and World's Fair Mine, Arizona

    The day I returned home from a week camping in New Mexico with my daughter and about 10 of her schoolmates, I caught a nasty cold. I spent the next four days in bed, coughing, blowing my nose and...
