VISIT TO SAN FRANCISCO

I t was September 1992. I was meeting my wife, Janet, in San Francisco to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.We came from different directions; me from Denver, she from Nashville.

As the 747 crawled northward over the bay, I was briefly reminded of the San Francisco of my dreams: Candlestick Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, Nob Hill, cable cars, beatniks, Fisherman's Wharf and Joe DiMaggio, tons of hills, chase scenes from movies, Eric Hoffer's longshoreman loading and unloading heavy barges, the television show The Streets of San Francisco, the Birdman of Alcatrez, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Kenneth Rexroth, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and the 1989 earthquake--doomed World Series. For more of my visit to San Francisco click here!

VACATION HAWAII and OTHER TIDBITS

"I found your Web site very useful - a great travel resource. I have another Web site that might be of interest to your site visitors. It's Vacation Hawaii, Mauna Loa Village." (Michele Schade.)

(That sounds interesting!-ed)" (Linda and Don Freedman)

"Hi Dan! I see your site is still one of the best I've come across! Well, after winning the Travel Weekly's "1998 Travel Agency Achievement Award for Best Web Site, I've gone on and opened my own company, Voyager Group. I've developed 2 new commercial travel sites: Cruise Voyager and Travel Voyager Perhaps you'd consider writing a paragraph or two about your site for our newsletter. Keep up the great job your doing, " (Gordon LaGrow) E-mail Gordon for the newsletter ! Always glad to help Gordon. Good luck with the new adventure!

"Check out the new search engine, Nautilia Travel, A Comprehensive worldwide travel search engine & directory." (Claudia Wolosin!) (Really neat search engine for travel sites. Try it!-ed)

RED FISH!!!

"I got to your page o'links while searching for places to promote my new travelling page, and thought you might be interested... It is the epic telling of me & My friend's six-month tour of Scotland and the united states, doing most of the stupid stuff inexperienced travellers are famous for doing and getting plenty of weird situations. Please enable your humor before coming in." Check out The Red & May World Tour! Signed Red!

E-MAIL NEEDED!

Did I get any e-mail from you? What is your favorite travel site? Where have you visited lately that is interesting? Let me know! I will check it out for our readers and explorers.

Send your e-mail please. Let the editor know what you want, ok?

"Dear Dan,

I am sure you get a lot of e-mail, but I just wanted you to know that while browsing I happen to trip across your web site today. It is an inspiration to me. Thank you for taking the time to put it out there for us. If you are ever going to be in the North West, Washington State, city of Tacoma please let me know. I would like to invite you to speak at our local small Kiwanis club (sorry it would have to be volunteer) for about 30 minuets or so. I think it would be very inspiring to hear you and our group is always looking for interesting folks to talk to us and encourage us in our efforts as community service volunteers.

In the mean time please continue your wonderful writings. I will return a lot since there is not enough time to sit and read all of your work in one visit. Have a wonderful week, and may your Guardian Angels watch over you and your family.

(Naida M. Bacon)

(This makes it all worthwhile. Thanks Naida!)

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.
