Hwy 128/121 Intersection (near Lake Berryesa), S. Napa, CA
What a day – I am exhausted… the hills that sit just East of Napa, CA are beautiful – colorful – lush & full of spectacular views; however, they are steep – windy – and OH SO tiresome! I was and (still am) a sweaty – stinky mess. <-- just thought I would attempt to put you in the poor shoes of a young girl who tries to type at the Napa Public Library next to me...haha. ; )
I have a new - never met - guest joining me tonight from B.C., Canada - we will see how the night evolves!

THANK you Pastor Bob of Lake Berryesa Community Church for allowing me to camp on your property last night!
Kiva has a WONDERFUL tool in creating an added connection & impact between lenders through ‘Lending TEAMS’!
On September of 2009 we created the Kiva Walk Lending Team. There are currently 14,990 lending teams on the Kiva.org network and we have been ranked in the top 4 for the last 3 months in monthly loan amount & # of loans! Our team has jumped to now 430 members and has generated an incredible: $390,000 + in loans to entrepreneurs ($61,000 of it just this last month!) When you visit the lending team pages you will find that this is a great way to organize & fuel lending to unique borrowers as a group – w/the bonus motives of healthy competition along for the ride! …its fun and most of all a great way to attract and build community around our common link: investing into small business & hard working people across the globe!

Sacramento, CA – (North) Davis, CA
I’m finger pecking this update from a wirey bench in the heart of UC Davis. This street side bench comes fully equipped w/round sides for easy leaning & of course… a full on outlet for all your wireless needs. It is Halloween and I’m MORE than content keeping my night limited to a cheap fuzzy-haired hat & BOB. I’m exhausted from a full day of walking in the strong sun while also fighting the blizzard of traffic on the ’causeway/hwy 80′ heading into Davis, CA!
Video from today:
A few pictures:
a TRUE blessing to spend such quality time w/the Williamson family this weekend!
a 'negative' version of the State Capitol this morning!
BOB & I enjoyed Old Town Sacramento today!
beautiful American River...
cheap Halloween hair hat meets BUSY causeway traffic!
BOB wanted to advertise... as he was tired of facing away from traffic - so I let him turn
Made it to Davis, CA and will take an extra day here tomorrow!
THANK YOU Jill & Julian for taking me in tonight and to Kris for connecting us!

Orangevale, CA – (west of) Arden, CA
SUCH a nice & refreshing walk on the American River Bike Path! Enjoyed my time w/CJ & the handful of locals who joined us and linked up w/us along the way. It was so nice to take breaks by the water – there is something about taking that ‘intentional’ time to stop – think – process – and just ‘be’ w/our natural environment… the rushing river water is a great way of doing that!
A few photos:
Ahhh - the American River - cutting towards Sacramento - so beautiful... (HUGE salmon spawning - flopping - and very alive!)
Last day walking w/CJ - SO nice to have him along for the walk - a refreshing cloud covered day
THANK YOU Williamson family for taking us in tonight!
