The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

The Car


Could this be the car missing it's crankshaft from yesterday's post?

 This car happens to be one of the more photographed items at Bodie Ghost Town SP.

It's a mid to late 30's something that died at Bodie and someday will rust away to nothing.

  1. Good job it's not over here as it would have rusted to nothing. Love old cars

  2. Great design. Looks a bit of a sports car. Now searching for the brand.

  3. A rugged old campaigner - it will probably still be there when all our modern cars have faded away.

  8. It has a ways to go, it seems.
    Nice reminder of the non-permanency of things, John!
    Have a Wonderful Day!
    Peace :)

  9. When that car was new it was probably expensive, shiny, and a toy of accomplishment. Who knew it would become a statue in honor of yesterday, rusty and remembering?
