While visiting relatives we ran into this contraption parked on a main thoroughfare in the San Diego suburb of Carlsbad and at first thought it was some kind of a food truck.

At first I thought he was a resident of that area who was miffed that a vehicle other than an Audi or Porsche was parked in his well-manicured, HOA maintained, gated community. He seemed the type: clean-cut and dressed as a southern Californian does for most of the year, in shorts.
But I was wrong. It was David H. Scott, the author himself. Here he is standing next to his 1929 1.5 ton Chevy. Here’s a better shot of the front:
If you want to follow his adventures (he’s currently planning a kayaking trek across Mongolia) his website is at: http://www.1indsob.com. Who knows, maybe at some point you’ll run into him and say: I know you. And it’s all because of Norm Frampton’s weekly #ThursdayDoors challenge.
On our way back to our far less unique, red Prius, we passed these monstrous and prolific daisies who practically screamed “Happy Spring!”
I regret that we are traveling and I may not be able to check out everyone’s contributions to the party. But I’m thinking of you.
