When I became a stay-at-home parent two decades ago, I didn’t use the term “side hustle.” But now I realize side hustling was, indeed, what I did when I found ways to make extra cash.   And most side hustles I tried back then are even more accessible today. Better online access means more legit and lucrative opportunities to earn additional money! Back then, there were fewer ways to make a side income. But when I […]

Last Updated on June 27, 2022 by Daniella Entering the workforce or thinking about making a career change? These LGBTQ+ friendly companies to work for have a history of supporting the queer community across their values, advertising, and company policies. While there’s plenty of giants out there like Apple, Microsoft, and Alphabet that are well-known for being welcoming to queer folks, I wanted to shine the light on some employers that aren’t always in the […]

Hey, everyone! We’re in the midst of our road trip. Unfortunately, I didn’t write anything ahead so I’ll just post once per week about our travels. We decided to drive on this trip because the flight tickets were quite expensive. We also heard about all the domestic flight problems and we’d rather avoid those. Anyway, it’s better to drive because we’ll be able to visit more people and see more sights. We haven’t taken a road trip since 2019 so this trip is long overdue. Our first stop was Redding, CA. That’s about halfway between Portland and San Jose, CA. We got there in the evening so we didn’t really explore the town much. We just checked in to the motel and went out to eat. Oh, we paid $96 for a room at Motel 6. It was … adequate. Hotels and motels are a lot more expensive than the last time we drove to California. That’s why we’re staying with friends and families on this trip. Anyway, we stopped in Redding because Mrs. RB40 wanted to visit Lassen Volcanic National Park. I’d never heard of this park, but I’m really glad we went. It was the perfect half-day side trip. The Lassen Volcanic National Park The Lassen Volcanic National Park is a great side trip because visitors could see a lot of sights in just 4 hours. We saw idyllic lakes, snowy peaks, lush meadows, and neat volcanic activities. Mrs. RB40 said it’s like a mini Yellowstone without the geysers and annoying crowds. From Redding, it took us about an hour to arrive at the Northwest entrance. From there we took Highway 89 through the park. The highway is 30 miles long, but the section from the Northwest entrance to the Southwest entrance is just half that. We went through the mileposts in reverse order, from 15 to 0. There are some very nice stops along this section. Oh, the entrance fee was $30 per vehicle. Milepost 15 – Manzanita Lake Manzanita Lake is right next to the Northwest entrance station. There is a trail that goes around the lake, but we just did a small section. We were saving our legs for the Bumpass trail. There was plenty of tree cover on this trail so it’s nice and shady. We saw geese, squirrels, trout, chickarees, and various birds. It was a great start to our side trip. Milepost 14 – Chaos Jumbles pull out Imagine a rock slide racing nearly 100 miles an hour down the slope of this group of dome volcanoes. Visitors can pull over for a quick stop here to see where all the rocks came to rest. Milepost 13 – Nobles Pioneer Trail Wow, a real pioneer trail from the gold rush days. Mr. Nobles stumbled upon an easier trail from the Humbolt-Nevada road to Shasta. He got some backers to invest in this trail, but it never caught on. Some pioneers came through the trail, but most
