On the Road and In Your Backyard

Good Morning All,

This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.

So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.

You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.

For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.


I found this post as a draft from mid-April so if I already published it, forgive me!

Which reminds me, one fantastic reader mentioned to me a small fundraiser she was part of for a school in Cambodia. Terrible me, I lost the link. I’d like to run a monthly fundraising thread for select causes, and that was what I had planned to lead with.  Mystery reader, please send me that info so I can share it with everyone! I know we can build those classrooms with 10 minutes of donations from our great readership. Can you imagine – we will build classrooms that will change the lives of generations!


Also folks, should you have good, not-so-large causes, especially ones involving animals or education in developing areas, please let me know via email or the contact form. I won’t promise to run everything, but I think we need to use our generosity for more than just politics and our standard animal causes.


Today, pictures from valued commenter Vicki Delany.

Thank you so much Vicki Delany, do send us more when you can.


Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.

    Cool. How long a trip (time) from the US?- assuming that was the origination. Trans-Pacific, or some other route?

    About 24 hours total from the continental US, counting flight time and layovers. Typically you take a Pacific Rim route, via Hong Kong or Tokyo, and the last leg of the air journey is from KLIA (watch out for North Korean assassins!) to Kota Kinabalu.International Airport.

    That orangutan is a flexible, little guy. So cool. I’d love to see them in their habitat.

    Alain, I’m not sure, but that sounds like satby, after her service trip.

    I dropped her an email and asked if that was her.

    @satby: Thanks! I rarely delete old mail, but apparently I did because exhaustive searching of my mail turned up bupkus.

    @WaterGirl: Thanks!
