Flying Over the Nevada Desert & Camping on the Playa

Yup, this one goes down as one of the best dates ever.

A few weeks before Burning Man, Manfriend and I flew out to the Black Rock Desert to camp and it goes without saying, but we had a fabulous night.

I’m preparing for our annual camping trip to the California coast at Dillon Beach.

As I’ve said before, it’s a fantastic spot for family camping with direct access to the beach. However, each year I add the caveat that I’ll only go if it isn’t raining. I’m crossing my fingers the weather plays nice.
