  • Waking Up In SitkaI remember very clearly lying on a picnic table in Petersburg, Alaska. I said to my friend, “I wish we could do this all afternoon. We could get a bottle of wine, maybe do a crossword and fall asleep.” She Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | May 30, 2013

  • Deckhand!If I were to write you a short autobiography about the last three years in my life, I would begin by telling you about my job. For those of you unfamiliar with my line of work, I want you to Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | May 2, 2013
  • A Love Affair With the SeaAbove The Water “My lady’s seas are heaving -- her breath a fifty-knot gale force wind. I step down from the lido after spending ten minutes in her wild embrace.

  • On Healthy Deserts and Blue Water AnimalsI apologize. I started this week with grand intentions of writing a well thought out piece about travel writing.

  • Vagabond Interrupted: A Spectacular Week in BajaI promised myself that I would jump in the ocean and drink a beer after work. By the time my shift ended, it was dark out.

  • Living The Good Life: Parting Shots of AntarcticaIt’s hard to believe I went to Antarctica. Who does that? As we were winding up our last days on the continent, my travel companion and I compared notes on how much we’ve worked this year. I’ve worked five and Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Nov 30, 2012
  • The Elements of Antarctica After much thought, I’ve decided I’m a struggling as a writer. I don’t know what adjectives to use when trying to describe the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula and surrounding islands. My Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Nov 25, 2012
  • South Georgia Island In Pictures There are many things I want to write about South Georgia Island. However, South Georgia is another one of those places where the written word struggles against the island‘s reality. It’s Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Nov 20, 2012
  • The Grand Finale: Four Alaskan JewelsI love the way Alaska says goodbye. I’ve spent a lot of time here this season-just shy of three months. There are so many moments, images and people to celebrate. I have sublime memories of it all. However, I feel Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Sep 12, 2012
  • Life On The Lido: An Alaskan CruiseI want to start this weeks essay by giving some insight about life on a ship. I’ve talked about this lifestyle before, and every so often I get inspired to share a few more details. However, I’m not sure quite Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Aug 28, 2012
  • Icebergs, Fox Fires, and Orca: An Alaskan Week to Remember I could see the mass of white blue ice floating on the placid rain speckled water of Williams Cove from the fantail of the ship. I asked our Bosun if he would drop some kayaks for two of my fri Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Aug 19, 2012
  • Alaskan Atmosphere I’m trapped in the ether of Southeast Alaska. In this region of Alaska, the simple act of breathing is a pleasure. The air is coldest at the point of entry- my nose- and warms only slightly as Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Aug 10, 2012
  • Haines, Alaska Have you ever been to Haines, Alaska? Haines was never on my Alaskan places to see list. I had seen it on a map, but breezed ove Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jun 24, 2012
  • From Homer to Haines: Crossing the Gulf of Alaska Homer, Alaska is a “quaint drinking village with a fishing problem.” It is also the “halibut capital of the world” (so they say). I don’t know if either of those boasts are true, but I DO Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jun 14, 2012
  • From Healy to Homer: An Alaskan Ramble Four hundred sixty miles is a long way to travel in one day, except by a jet airplane or high-speed train. My plan was to hitchhike this distance, starting from the outskirts of Denali National P Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jun 8, 2012
  • Baja's BlessingsI have been noticing that at about seven a.m. my left eye starts to twitch. This is a certain sign of fatigue for me, and I have been running from deep fatigue for the last week. It is my turn Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Mar 26, 2012
  • Sublime Times in MexicoI gave up my long johns for my adventure pants, and I’m back on the southern Baja Peninsula. My reasoning is that March is one damn fine month to be in Mexico, and a poor month to be anywhere in Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Mar 17, 2012
  • The Mexican Saga ContinuesA Morning at Puerto Escondido I have the morning off. I know this, but I get up at 6 am anyway. I love mornings, especially when you don’t have to work. Why would I sleep in? I’m not in Mexico to Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jan 21, 2012
  • Project: One Good Photograph A DayI like to think I take one good photograph a day. Now, I realize this idea is purely subjective. When I say this, I realize that not everyone would agree with me on what a good photograph would consist of, Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jan 10, 2012
  • To Baja By HammockWe have reached the Cape (Land’s End near Cabo San Lucas) and the tropics. The air is humid, the air temperature is comfortable and warm. I’m back in my desert paradise. It hasn’t really set in, I suppose. I think Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Dec 24, 2011
  • Eating Habits of Whales and BearsI’m wrapping up my last week here in Alaska until September. Yep, it’s time for a month off, and let me tell you I’m quite excited about my vacation. Before I go, it seems like Alaska is giving me a Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Aug 6, 2011
  • An Alaskan Visual FeastFor this week's entry, I'm going to let the scenery do the talking. Alaska is an amazingly wild place, that I've been fortunate enough to explore with my eyes and camera. Here are a few of my favorite shots of Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jul 18, 2011
