VISIT TO CAPE COD

O n a map Cape Cod looks like a deformed claw hung in the middle of the ocean. It is a ragged arm tattered by a contemputuous sea. In summer the heat is sweltering. In winter, northeasterners play havoc with the playthings of summer. Cape Cod is 2,521 air miles from Four Corners.

I went to Cape Cod to visit Henry Beston's cabin, to see the place where Marconi transmitted his first transatlantic radio signal to England, and to visit an old friend - Ernest "Lefty" Cooper. To read more about the Cape, CLICK HERE!

Hi Dan, Well, I just found your site... amazing I hadn't found it before with all the travel surfing I do, but I was surfing for my own links, found American Borders, thanks for the mention. Just returned from China, rode a Chang Jiang sidecar bike from Beijing to the Tibetan border and back, by myself, which was a big mistake... got very lonely in China, unlike in Africa, where I also traveled alone (by bicycle, long ago), the people were pretty cold, with a few notable exceptions. I sent dispatches home a couple of times a week (their phone system there is awesome!) the site is at http://www.verbum.com/jaunt/ along with American Borders. By the way, after a long vacation in my dad's garage, the Ural is up and running around San Francisco and Marin, at least til it starts raining.--Best to you--(Carla King)

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!

Edward Abbey

"About ten years ago I took a job as a seasonal park ranger in a place called Arches National Monument near the little town of Moab in southeast Utah. Why I went there no longer matters; what I found there is the subject of this book. My job began on the first of April and ended on the last day of September. I liked the work and the canyon country and returned the following year for a second season. I would have returned the third year too and each year thereafter but unfortunately for the Arches, a primitive place when I first went there, was developed and improved so well that I had to leave." Edward Abbey - The introduction to Desert Solitaire.

Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.
