Our new life in Cali (so far)…

Hey fam! It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve posted, and I wanted to give ya’ll a recap of what we’ve been up to. We are about 90% moved in and settled. It was tough fitting everything into 700 sqft.

Not really ready to show the ‘after’ pics just yet. But I’ll get them up as soon as we put on those finishing touches. I know. It’s been 2 weeks. It’s a slow process.

I will say, the location and the view is amazing.

I mean, really?? This view is unbelievable.

We headed back into the desert last Friday to check out something we missed while we were in Joshua Tree on the way here. The Integratron. This is a super weird structure located in Landers, CA that was built in the 70’s by this guy, George Van Tassel. The story goes, he was spending a lot of time in the desert and was visited by an extraterrestrial who gave him the plan for this place for purposes of cellular rejuvenation and time travel. Crazy! He apparently died before it could be completed. We came for a quartz bowl sound bath. What the hell is that, you ask? Basically, you lay in savasana while several quarts crystal bowls are being played. They correlate with your chakras for alignment and healing. It’s really not as weird as it sounds. It was amazing. Bonus: due to the building’s shape and structure, the sound bounces in all directions and sounds incredible. Highly recommend. Although, if you do, make sure you have 4 wheel drive. We had to off road for a bit, which isn’t normal, but there was construction, and we were late!

After the sound bath, we found this place in the middle of nowhere. But apparently, it’s a kindof famous place that has really great shows! They have been around since the 1980’s and have had a crap-ton of cool people play here. We will be back…

Other than that, we have been exploring our little beach town and getting acclimated. Huntington Beach has been really fun, crazy, cool, and exciting. Check back soon for more adventures!!

Day 7 and 8 // 6.11.17

Woah. The past couple days have been crazy. I’ve been without wifi so i’ve been unable to post! Here’s the recap.

Friday, we went to Joshua Tree National Park. OMG. This place. It is unreal. These funky little trees look like a cross between a palm tree and a cactus. There were also these huge rocks. I mean, look at that!

All the colors here were so vibrant. Check out the color of this sky. No filter needed.

This would be a great place to camp and spend more time. I’d really like to check out some of the more challenging hikes. We will definitely be back.

After spending the day at Joshua Tree, we went back to our little apartment to get ready for dinner. We went to the Joshua Tree Saloon. The food was decent and they had pool tables and live music. The perfect ending to our day.

Saturday, we woke up relatively early to get packed up. Today is MOVE IN DAY!!! We will no longer be homeless! That is, IF the POD actually arrives. I mean, two days ago, they didn’t even know where it was. Trying to remain positive. No need to manifest shit going wrong.

I don’t think Mr. P wanted to leave. He had settled into our little apartment and even had some good window views!

I thought the drive would only be two hours. It was three. And Mr. P had had enough of the car. He threw a temper tantrum just like a toddler. This is him digging and shoving his head aggressively into my overnight bag. So much for folded clothes.

He finally came around.

We got to the apartment with enough time to unload the car and get Pushkin set up. And then, guess what? THE POD ARRIVES!

Hooray! We have stuff!!

We hired a couple guys to help us unload. However, they were a little late. They were supposed to be there between 4-5pm. They got there at 8:45. Oh well. We got the shit unloaded and was in bed (finally) at midnight.

Next steps: trying to figure out how to squeeze all of our crap into 700 sq ft….
