Cape Cod | Vacationland

Once I hit the deep end with this whole drag stuff, I pretty much sealed the fate of having to see some queens live-in-show. Bendelacreme announced a month-long run of Infernoagogo in Provincetown, Massachusetts. I thought back to a time when a friend told me about how gay P-Town is and how close he lives. … Continue reading Cape Cod | Vacationland

Seattle | Home of Starbucks and Jinkx Monsoon

After a quick couple days driving up the West Coast, we arrived in Seattle. We spent the night in North Seattle before heading into the city the next morning.

The line was … Continue reading Seattle | Home of Starbucks and Jinkx Monsoon

Summiting Half Dome in Yosemite National Park

Ever since I learned of the permit system for climbing up the cables on Half Dome, I've wanted to do it. Admittedly, it was only about a year ago, but still.

Middle America: Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio

After Idaho, we had a day to spend with friends in Logan, Utah. We got some Aggie Ice Cream, saw some local shops and cafes, and had a nice time with one of the nicest families I've met. We saw some nature-y dams and got to get some great views of Bear Lake on the … Continue reading Middle America: Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio

Los Angeles: A Big County with a Small Dream

I've spent a long weekend in LA before and enjoyed it very much. We had stayed in Marina del Rey and kept to the Venice Beach/Santa Monica area except for a drive on Rodeo and a quick jaunt to see the Hollywood sign. This year, I made sure that LA was on the itinerary for … Continue reading Los Angeles: A Big County with a Small Dream
