The REAL adventures of terapined

I loved Bakersfield a couple weeks ago
Checked out the Kern County Museum
Expected ho hum
Was actually blown away. This is a must see if into history and I'm into history
A small little town of about 50 historic houses and buildings relocated to the museum land
Absolutely loved it
On top of that
Merle Haggards boyhood home
WTF
WOW
Started out as a converted rail road car they built on to
I love Merle
Grateful Dead covered Mama Tried
What an unexpected find being a deadhead

The REAL adventures of terapined

The funniest thing I have seen in my travels
Stayed at a RV park in San Diego
Visited La Jolla just bouncing around town looking for anything picture worthy
I went into a Ralph Lauren
Not my type of place to shop but I always look for interesting things to take a pic of and you never know
Boy was that store interesting
Saw a pair of pants with tears and patches
WTF, garage sale material.
I asked how much
195.00
Asked to take a pic, they allowed
I tried to joke with the staff about the obvious irony
They did not see the humor. lol
Was in I think Beverly Hills a week later, saw a Ralph store
I asked about those pants, showed a pic
They did not have that pair
One of a kind?
Directly teared and patched by the man himself?

The REAL adventures of terapined

Most moving and emotional moment during this road trip.
The OKC Bombing Memorial
Beautifully done
And on a nearby wall written

"Team 5
4-19-95
We search for the the truth
We seek justice
The courts require it
The victims cry for it
And God Demands It !"

Really powerful when you see it for yourself
You picture the day our heroes did their best to save children. You can just feel the emotion in the writing.

The REAL adventures of terapined

I absolutely love museums
I love history
I also love the variety of cultures on this wonderful planet
Of course a huge music fan
So far the best museum by far
Musical Instruments museum in Phoenix
I never heard of this museum and I'm a huge music fan
The musical instrument collection is massive
Hundreds of different displays covering every country on the planet, all different genres and of course artists.
The artist section, helps if you live in Phoenix.
Alice Cooper has his own display.
Each of these displays play music videos of that country's music, or genre or artist.
All sound is wireless
You walk around to different displays and you automatically hear the music being played through your earphones.
This museum is so massive and incredible, I bought the 2 day ticket. 1st day I could only cover Europe and some of Asia. That's a lot of displays because each country gets it's own. The music videos are fascinating. 4 or 5 per display. I brought my own headphones just to get the best sound possible

ED, the only way to get your adventures thread really popular is to make up fake BS adventures.

The REAL adventures of terapined
LOL
Here is a pretty neat adventure. 1st off. I dont do many videos but a ton of pics of anything I deem pic worthy which is a ton.
Mdawg mentioned the Beverly Hills robbery he only read about.
I was cruising the area by foot. Not too difficult to park my pickup. Sometimes luxury stores on Rodeo drive provide interesting pic opportunities.
I think I heard something which I think was the actual incident, shots in the distance, but I dismissed it. It's the city. Not sure. Again, city noises. I see cop cars converging from everywhere. Cant help but notice that. They were on the scene like white on rice. Of course I hustle over there.
I'm thinking WTF is going on
Soon all the TV cameras arrive and they are all doing live shots.
It's like a circus and I'm sticking around.
I take a pic but to me not really pic worthy. A bunch of cop cars and a bunch of cops. I used to live in the city. Common site.Even the live TV shot stations totally winging it desperate for the latest info. Thought about video taping a live shot but they didn't know much so why bother. It's not like a super talented street musician that I do videotape if I run across. Another real adventure I'll post about in the future.
I actually found the whole media circus pretty entertaining despite seeing nothing worthy of a pic.
A big guy dressed in biker gear is standing next to me.
On a whim I ask him if he knows what's going on.
I figure a out of place Harley biker in Beverly Hills, what does he know. This is an extremely high end area. The richest of the rich are here.
He tells me he saw it all
I say "really?"
Yea, my girlfriend got shot.
I'm like WTF. I'm in shock. The out of place Biker was involved. Im incredulous.
He tells me the whole story while the nearby live shots were still desperate for info.
I tell the guy you should tell the TV guys what you know.
There are like all 4 local stations on the scene all doing live shots. Kind of spread out because they dont want to bleed into each others live shots
I yell over to the closest guy in the live shot while live, "the story is here". Dont know the station. I dont live in LA. Dont know the news personalaties.
He ignores me
I yell louder "eyewitness"
That gets his attention. He looks over and I point to the biker and the biker yells "Yea, I saw the whole thing"
Guy rushes over to do a live interview, I on a whim start video recording the live shot of the witness biker telling his story on live TV to the LA station guy. I eventually put the camera on my self after he told this story saying "crazy LA, this is crazy LA. Signing off friends"
I do this because I love sharing my videos with my close friends and they of course cheer me on.

The bikers story. He was having lunch with friends. He noticed a scuffle at a nearby table. He stood up because he's a big guy and people calm down in front of big guys. He said they demanded a watch. He heard shots as he tried to push his girlfriend out of the way. His girlfriends leg was grazed by a bullet

Ed... I know we argue about certain political crap over on the other forum... but I LOVE your adventures...!!! I am not a Ďmusicí guy but will definitely go to that museum in Phoenix.

I think Iíve mentioned this before.... but wife played with Timothy McVeigh as a young kid.... no prediction of his future....
I have no interest in seeing that museum.....

I think if I started a thread about my adventures.... how BORING it would be!

The REAL adventures of terapined
The most fascinating place I have ever visited that I never knew existed.
Slab city.
It's where freedom lives large.
The last free city in the USA. Was an old military base. They dismantled the base and all that was left were concrete slabs all over the place. 1st homeless vets moved in. Since then it has attracted all kinds. People that want to be off the grid, drug addicts, mental problems, drifters, retired, RVers, hippies, ect. In the summer just a few hundred. In the winter thousands. I checked out a few local businesses, Internet cafe, the ponderosa, the oasis and their concert venue the range. Saw a burned out camp, either an accident or slab city justice. Fascinating place. No services. Most use solar, have large water containers, burn trash and have outhouses or compost. Many different neighborhoods with their own rules.

I watched a documentary about this place. The documentary was fascinating, I'm just not sure that it would be on my list of places I would really care to visit, unless, I just happened to be in the area for some other reason.
