Erin and Rachel took us to the annual Adams Avenue Street Fair one really hot afternoon. The festival is the city’s largest free music festival. We spent most of our time perusing the vendors’ booths and Trey got to ride a few (overpriced) fair rides. For lunch we ate some delicious Laotian food and then […]
Heidi’s sister Rachel is a lawyer at a huge firm in San Diego. One evening we picked her up from work and got a tour of the place. Trey got to be the head honcho and sit at the head of the conference room table.
On September 23rd (Heidi’s birthday), we arrived in San Diego at Rachel’s house with its quaint white picket fence. Here are some shots Heidi took of Trey there.

Watch Trey have a blast climbing rocks, get a “Cribs” style tour of his rock house, and watch the attack of the not-so-killer bees.
Trey’s great-grandfather (and namesake) Bill Haun (aka “Peepaw”) fought in World War II under the leadership of General Patton. We were totally surprised when we pulled off the interstate in California to get gas and saw the General Patton Memorial Museum. We toured the museum and its large collection of decommissioned tanks. Trey loved all the weaponry […]
CALIFORNIA! We made it! Eleven days after Trey and I left Macon, we finally arrived in Cali. The trip has gone by so fast it hardly seems like we’ve been gone so long. Trey is still hanging in there and having a blast each and every day. It’s also great to have Heidi with us […]
In 2004, Heidi and I took an epic road trip from Florida to California and back. We called the journey HAUNS GO WEST and documented it online at this very web site. Now, 6 years later, we’re doing it again. Trey and I will drive from Macon, Georgia to San Diego, California and back. On […]
It’s been several days since our last email – I guess we got a little distracted by the “stick in hand” incident. The common theme running through the last couple places we visit seems to be “extremes”. For example, the Sequoia National Park we visited had extremely large trees. In fact, we were able to […]
Death Valley is a land of extremes. It is one of the hottest places on the surface of the Earth with summer temperatures averaging well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. It encompasses the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below the level of the sea, and it is the driest place in North […]
