Puerto Rico Version 2.0
A New Chapter Begins!
If I had not stated so previously, part of my motive for going to Puerto Rico was to see if I might like living there. Hence the need to see the place during its worst.. Hurricane Season. The answer to that is most definitely! In fact, I plan to move to the island in late November. No, Really, I have my ticket! I’ve already shipped a bunch of things that way and will be selling off or giving away what I don’t keep. As ‘LaLa’ put it- “Puerto Rico is truly, America’s Best Kept Secret”.. I could not agree more.
After 46 winters in Alaska, I need a serious break!
I grew up here, worked here and did my fair share of traveling around the “Last Frontier”. I have thousands of slides and negs to prove it. Later into next year, I’ll post some of those images to a new page on the Blog under “Off the Chart”. Unfortunately, Alaska has become a very expensive place to live. Energy, transportation and housing costs are real issues. Had Puerto Rico not worked out, I would have considered one of the southern states for relocation. That was my backup plan.
It looks like my little Isuzu Rodeo will come in quite handy once I get back. However, my idea to buy a cheap used car and then sell it when I was done, was a bad one.. even if I had extended my stay by a month (like I thought I might). Nothing happens in a hurry here. Kids, don’t do what I did. It was a lame move. There are no ‘Park ‘N Sell’ lots like in the US, to sell it later (at least I didn’t find any). If you have a week or more to look around, rent something for your trips out of San Juan. Or if you are really short on time, score one of the 1/2 day tours. They will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. That takes care of the expensive transportation issue.
Live and learn from my mistakes.
Upon my return to Puerto Rico, I’ll resume my Travel Blog and report on the things I missed, on my first trip. I’ll also be adding new stuff and a few select ads over the coming months. The quality of content will remain the same, if not improve. I’ll be able to do some things I did not get around to like underwater images, night-time effects and more videos with some time-lapse tossed in. It will also allow me to focus on more in-depth reports and personal interviews. I will be adding a new page for immersive VR Panorama images too! Details regarding the VR Panos will follow. If you have Apple’s QuickTime on your computer now, you’re set. If not, why not?
You got iTunes on it, right?
I do apologize for the delay with this post. Packing has taken its toll on my time. I will put up one of the videos I shot “From the Road” within 4 or 5 days.
