Back Home From Oregon, Nevada + the Instagram Factor

Got back at 3 AM Thursday morning, having left Elko 15 hours earlier. Not straight-thru driving, by any means (I dawdle), but a long day nevertheless. A great trip, rich in adventure and new territory. Once again, I have the problem of too much “content.” I could do a small book on each trip, but each time I  return home, I get immersed in the details of running a publishing house, and having to work on a more standard sized book.

For example, I could do some really nice small books on travels to SE Asia, to Scotland, and this latest cruise through California’s two sister states.

My blog is bit of a hodgepodge these days, what with doing Instagram (because of its immediacy and ease), and other time constraints. If you haven’t figured it out, all the posts with the captions written up as headlines are automatic posts from Instagram to the blog. Not elegant, but it’s the best I can do right now.

You can view my Instagram posts at www.instagram.com/lloyd.kahn. This way you can see the videos, which don’t get transferred to the blog.

I’ll put up some photos (I shot about 450, between the iPhone (6S Plus) and Olympus OM-D) from the trip on the next post.
