Nov 8th 2010 2:48PM I find it ridiculous that nude-sleepers are so incensed when really, it's potty-trained children who should be offended.
Aug 30th 2010 2:23PM Lake Paxson, Alaska. There is nothing better than the sound of rain on a tent and contented loons in the background.
Jun 7th 2010 6:06PM I remember being about 7 years old when my Mom returned from one of many trips to Germany. She brought my sisters and I the standard wooden toys and lovely dolls, but to me the most charming things she had in her suitcase were the tiny plastic coffee mug, plates and silverware she nabbed from the flight. No idea why they struck such a chord with me, but I freaking loved them.
May 20th 2010 3:29PM Excellent list. Only thing I would add is a multi-tool (swiss army, leatherman). Guaranteed you'll need to whittle a stick for roasting marshmallows, pull a splinter our of your hand, open a can or file your nails at some point.

Also, David: You should look up the NileGuide folks when you're in Oakland. We'd love to give you some local recommendations. Well, I would at least.
Mar 1st 2010 5:38PM I live by Lake Merritt, about 20 minutes (sans traffic, ha!) from the Strada and you've captured the atmosphere perfectly. It's all I can do not to throw my laptop in my bag, run to my car and drive there now.
But my boss probably wouldn't appreciate it.
Croissant + book + people watching (in Berkeley, no less) = the perfect afternoon.
Feb 8th 2010 3:28PM I hope this commentator also has a sexy Australian accent.
