Fun Mountain Activities
across Western US

There are many fun adventures you can find in the mountain regions: from ziplining to climbing. One of them is Underground Caves exploration. Check out these great places across US. I was only able to visit

3, so far. 


Moaning Cavern Adventure Park in Calaveras also had a great Twin zipline, it was open up until 2019. 

It has been closed ever since. Closest Zipline to Calaveras now is  4 hours drive, away in Sonoma

Zipline Adventures,  Occidental, CA 95465 and 7 hours drive away, in Skull Canyon, Corona, CA . 

Lake Shasta Caverns have a great rocks museum and only accessible via lake ride. You can only get there

by boat, no trails. Very cool place, hidden jewel that's for sure. It is about 1 hour 10 minutes drive to Mt. Shasta Nordic Center. 

Kartchner Caverns State Park, is about 30 minutes drive from Tombstone, Arizona downtown historic district. They have daily stage plays and staging all through the year. Many actors there all the time. It's a fun place to visit, if you like Westerns. It is also about 1 hour 30 minutes to Nogales, Mexico via HWY 82.

Relocate to the Sunny Side Up?

Before you decided to purchase new home & relocate, make sure your check there "Mood Weather Report" of the place you relocating to.

I bought the home in Onondaga County for example and was surprised to hear from people, that many local residents here are chronically depressed & want to move elsewhere. Because of the rain, snow & lack of sunny days.

"Onondaga County, New York gets 42 inches of rain, on average, per year. The US average is 38 inches of rain per year. Onondaga County averages 102 inches of snow per year.  The US average is 28 inches of snow per year. On average, there are 161 sunny days per year in Onondaga County. The US average is 205 sunny days." ~ read more


I don't get depressed here in NY.  I think half a year is plenty

of sunny days. Plus no other place in  America, has autumn like New England, Vermont, Rhode Island & New York, with all 4 season's colors. The smell of the freshly fallen fall leaves with the morning due on it. Nothing like this can be found in the South or the West.

I usually recommend for people,  run their Astro travel report, before making any decision to relocate. 

Outdoor Reading

Read & Relax

If you don't have much, like wealth or things ~ read. Find a book & read. Listen to the audio books, there are many free & available on most cell phones,  to "waste time" & discuss it with your friends later. Redirect your thoughts from negative undertones. 


Run your Astro Travel Report, to see if you leave near Saturn/Pluto clusters or crossings in your chart. Places like this could lead to more depression than usual. And should be very carefully considered for family residence.

You try to eat or smoke CBD Cannabis, to improve your moods.



Winter Walk

Things never stay the same,they always changing.

No matter how & what you feel, remember ~ this is only temporary. Things can never stay the same, it's not part of our reality. Every moment we live in is ever changing. Don't hold on to your thoughts if they bring you sorrow.

Mistakes had to be made for us to see the Right way. Remember, as time passes by, we see the past as "the stepping stone" into our future. Most scientific discoveries were the result of the accident. Mistakes usually lead to progress. Otherwise, how would

we learn? 


Weather & Moods

I found this article "The Effect of Weather on Your Mood" & wanted to share. Hoping it may help some people struggling with "Bad weather mood swings".

What is the most  important if you feel this way? In the areas like this, with a lot of fog, gloomy days & weather changes, having a right friend & very reliable partner is 100% important.  But if  you live alone, you should love this weather. Without exceptions, otherwise it will not lead to a very happy existence.


Since I came here I heard from people who live in Onondaga their whole lives they would love to travel to California, or maybe even move. But then I heard from people, who also live here their entire lives here, that they? never seen Lake Ontario, yet.  Age 20 Plus. It made me wonder, how different people & their lives & tastes are. I have visited Fair Haven Beach twice already, since being here for only a year. 

Depression can affect all of us, but just because the weather is gloomy, does not mean you can not have & find a way to have fun. However, many people do get misdiagnosed, due to the lack of care or experience among the psychiatric staff.  Many clinical psychologists do not even bother following medical history protocol before placing labels on people's charts. Mentally challenged doctors with personal issues that lead them to this profession in the first place. They have a hard time handling  their own minds let alone someone else's.

What do yo do? Create

What do you do when everyone around you is depressed? 


Make sure you pay attention to your kids behaviour. Find something for them to do other than daily routine, even if their routine is "just playing". Change of activities is a good start. Cook together, walk the dog, shop or just take out garbage. Start a fireplace & have a cup of hot chocolate, out of the blue & off season.  


When you feel down ~ create. People create everything,

from candles on your center piece to the silver spoon on the Christmas tree.


Cultural stereotyping 

~ Oh, you are Russian? How about Belomor & Vodka?

~ Oh, how about not?  I don't drink any hard liquor & I don't smoke any tobacco. I only smoke organic CBD or Indica & drink Apple Cider, Gluten Free 8% Alc. MAX

or Barbera ©? Nothing stronger. I also have a coffee, instead of blood, you know? I am "New Age American Russian" ~"Apple Cider Coffee on a Rocks."
