After leaving Henry’s Lake State Park, we headed to my Grandmother’s ranch in Southern Idaho where I was born. Seeing her way more often has been another great perk to the RV lifestyle. This is a huge, beautiful property with three creeks flowing through it and fresh spring water flowing into every faucet in the house. My Grandmother is a wonder. She’s a tiny little woman in her late 80s in great shape with a healthy diet and she takes care of this massive ranch all on her own. That being said, Chris and I love visiting her and being able to help out, while there. We plugged the RV into the side of the house under the apple tree that we shared with the deer, and stayed for a few days while getting ready for our trip back into L.A.
We were going back to L.A. to play a gig to help out our dear friend & fellow DJ Ricardo Torres. He had been in a very serious accident and the House Music community was coming together to help him out. Marques Wyatt of Deep L.A. had put together an event that would raise money to help Ricardo recover. We left our home on wheels at Grandma’s and headed down to L.A. in the Jetta, staying in Vegas, on the way.
The event was beautiful. DJs, dancers and promoters all came together for the cause. That’s one beautiful thing about the House Music Family. If you’re part of it, you feel very safe because a lot of people have your back. It was also very nice for Chris and I to play and immerse ourselves in the positive vibes of this music that we had been missing so much with so many amazing friends that we hadn’t seen in while.
After that, we headed back to the ranch, which is one of the biggest perks to mobile living. The freedom to surround ourselves with the creative energy of L.A., and then retreat back to the inspiration of nature is truly priceless. And, now we were back with our simple little home on wheels and ready for the next adventure. Utah was up next.
