Welcome to the New Blog!


The Blogger at the Spreckels Organ Pavillion, June of 2014.

I’m currently in the process of moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress. If you are reading this post, that’s great, it means you’ve found the new address, www.pocketfullofwanderlust.com Please Bookmark the new blog address for your next visit.  After I move all content to the WordPress Blog, I will no longer update the old Blogger Blog! All future content will be on the WordPress site. Why did I make the move to WordPress? The short answer….WordPress is more user-friendly and offers more flexibility and ease of use!  In the future, I plan to add all types of media, to include videos, photographs and maps. My Blog recently passed the “100,000 page view” mark and I sincerely appreciate my readers taking the time to visit the site! -Thanks, Andrew


I Can’t Drive any Farther West…..



Overlooking the Pacific Ocean from the cliffs at the Torrey Pines Glider Park in San Diego, California.

Last week I arrived in San Diego, one of my favorite cities in the world!  I’m going to visit friends for a few weeks and shoot some photographs of the beautiful, diverse landscape.  It’s been a little more than 2 years since my last visit to San Diego and other than the freeways being a bit more congested, things really haven’t changed much!  In my opinion, San Diego has perhaps the best year-round weather of any city in the continental United States.  Today it was 78 and sunny…and as the sun-set over the horizon, the view of the Pacific Ocean from the cliffs at the Torrey Pines Glider Park was magnificent!

So far my “Road Trip 2014” from Kentucky to San Diego has taken me through seven states and covered 4345 miles.  Along the way, I’ve visited family and friends, attended the Overland Expo 2014 and covered many miles on the backroads of America!

A few gliders enjoy an evening flight.
Can’t drive any farther west….
