Shaded Hike Oakland Hills- Joaquin Miller Park Palos Colorados Trail by PostcardTravelers

Hike/ Palos Colorados Trail Head – Joaquin Miller Park 40 Joaquin Miller Ct, Oakland, CA 94611

This is a great, completely shaded, hike in the Oakland hills of California. ‘Palos Colorados Trail’ is just one of the many ‘Joaquin Miller Park’ Trails. Palos Colorados you can hike round trip about 3 miles along the Palo Seco Creek, well the creek is at the bottom of the hill. (On my map below it’s the red line). With a 688 feet elevation gain. (Down hill on the way back). (Get the official Oakland Trails Map https://oaklandtrails.org/maps/) No bikes allowed. If you choose to go on a bike trail for part of it, continue on the the orange line (The Sinawik trail) going back on that one will also make you end up, up-hill.  Or just double back on the Palos Colorados like we did. I wasn’t looking to break a record, just get the body moving. I mention I was on a Keto Diet, I didn’t follow it in it’s entirely, I mostly changed many things in my diet and cut out the CARBS and sugar and lost 30 pounds. The coconut Oil I speak of was MTC Oil, here’s a link. You have to have ‘good fat’ in your diet. Avocado everyday and MTC Oil (Coconut Oil).  I Have it everyday in my coffee. I also get it from Vitacost about $14.00 where it retails $23.00 as well as many of my Vitamin products. (Free shipping when you  reach a certain amount). I feel great! 30 days before my next birthday I was determined to change my life in every way. You really see results fast with Keto with just a few changes.  I also changed my beer, (your really not supposed to drink beer but I know having one 2/3rd less carbs also played a big factor). I did many other things that contribute to anti aging like nuts, berries, etc. At some point I’ll get more into it. Like I found on a rock; “What you are not changing, you are choosing”. I don’t want to be like the rock!

Keto Diet-MTC-Oil

Any way, I mention a very ‘old metal pipe’ in the video turns out, they are remnants from an old water delivery system that fed the neighborhoods below Joaquin Miller Park from a reservoir that once occupied the meadow inside the park. So, no, it’s not for Gold mining as I thought, that I know of. If you look closely though you can tell it was made a long-long time ago.

The hike has some good elevations for interesting views and exercise. It’s a narrow trail, with a big drop. The one we went on has no bikes, but you can make sort of a round trip and end up behind Monaghans Oakland if you chose to take the bike trail back. But you are always dealing with bicyclist. And to get back to your car, you will have to walk on the road. Unless you leave a car at Monaghans, then you can drive your friend back after you have lunch. Be cautious where you park, they tow cars around Monaghans! Anyway Have a great day, enjoy the trip.

Important Travelers Gear by Stacy Poulos PostcardTravelers.com
Adventure friends here are some great must have important travelers gear! Sorry about the motorcycle / travel hair! LOL Anyway I guess my bag is not water proof. It’s water resistant. I found links from my affiliates….
Watch the video I give you a tour of my products I use when riding. Use at your own risk. Consult professionals.

REI Duffel-backpack
REI Duffel-backpack Water resistant heavy duty tie down loops.
❤️ 🎒 Duffel Bag turns Backpack from REI Co-op Big Haul 60 Duffel 
I love mine! The straps can easily be tucked away. It offers great water protection but apparently is not waterproof as I said in the video. It’s a soft plastic like material. I don’t like that harder water proof plastic material, this gives more.  Most airlines require a piece of carry-on luggage to be no bigger than 45 linear inches (L + W + H) to meet carry-on size restrictions. This can vary check with your airline ahead of time. If you don’t fill it up, you  squeeze down . . . . those extra 5.4 inches. There are a lot of heavy duty loops on the sides for tie down hooks and / or ropes. I don’t buy bags anymore that aren’t water resistant. I also think it helps keep the bugs out. How every this lovely orange attracts them lol. But I had to have it, thanks mom! XOXO  http://bit.ly/2NE3XfI

❤️ 🏍️ 🔌 iClever Jump Start thingie. This was a life saver!! I had to jump my bike 4 times in one day! The bartender came out of the bar with this. Thank you! I think all businesses / every one should have one to help people. It also charges cell phones, laptops and ipads! Anyway I found it on Amazon. It shows a motorcycle 12 V. [PD 30W Input & Output] iClever 20000mAh Car Jump Starter (up to 8L gas or 6.5L diesel engine), Power Delivery 30W Power Bank with Dual USB 3.0 Quick Charging for Nintendo Switch and MacBook… on Amazon. PS the hard part was attaching the clamps, as usual!  Harley doesn’t give you room on the battery to grab the battery terminal. I just had someone hold it on it. (not exactly safe) MAKE SURE YOU CAN USE IT WITH YOUR BIKE! There is another way to jump start a battery on a motorcycle when I learn I’ll show you too.

King Tides equal shipwrecks and treasure hunting!

Pirates, shipwrecks, and Ghosts Adventure Map By Stacy Poulos PostcardTravelers.com
Pirates, shipwrecks, and Ghosts Adventure Map By Stacy Poulos PostcardTravelers.com

There is nothing like a full moon to uncover what lies beneath the surface of the earth. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been learning as I go about this phenomenon called ‘tides’ since I have been kayaking and was basically stuck in the mud trying to get to the shore walking my boat in mud up to my knees. It’s something I knew about but never really understood it’s wonder.  And then there’s King tides. Which is an even greater water level. Which I took notice when I was kayaking in Alameda and couldn’t get close to my kayak partner because the current was so great and I was tired from a long day of kayaking. So it’s not advisable to be kayaking or boating, or even being near the edge of the water because of sneaker waves. But at low tied it’s a great time to see what has been under the water all this time. During this King tide the water level reached 7+ feet at highest tide in the SF Bay Area. For me this mean there are a few ships including one from the 1800’s I have to go see at it’s lowest tide. This King tide will last just a few days.

Unfortunately the lowest tide had been at sunset, and with the clouds almost impossible to see, but I DID!  I was at Point San Pablo at 5pm ish and on the road looking into Point San Pablo Harbor and off to the left of the harbor you can see the shape of what appears to be a large wood ship. What is left is just the frame that look like a fence of just posts.

King Tides Week of January 21-23
King Tides Week of January 21-23

Here are some important tips that will educate even just a hiker or walker along any Bay or shore in the world! No matter where you go. And if you are traveling, you are most likely planning on being near water! So be aware, knowledge is power.

Parking. With out looking at a tide chart, you can logically look at the ground and see where the water line is on low and high tide. Usually the water line is pretty apparent.  Know that if it is low tide and your car is far away from the water. It can possible be submerged when you get back! Or the road you came in will be submerged as well. Almost for sure when there is a King tide.

Kayaking and boating and being stuck in the mud. Have no fear. Know that every 6 hours the Tide changes direction. Before it dose it will sit for a hour before it makes it way back called a slack tide. Most the time you don’t know the tide is even moving. So it can creep up on you. Lets say you planned to get out of the water and there is 20 feet of mud. You can wait it out cut it will eventually fill up.

 

Wikipedia Ebb and Flow
“Ebb and flow (also called ebb and flood and flood drain) are two phases of the tide or any similar movement of water. The ebb is the outgoing phase, when the tide drains away from the shore; and the flow is the incoming phase when water rises again. The terms are also common in figurative use…” – Wikipedia

Slack tides

“Slack water, also known as ‘the stand of the tide’, is a short period in a body of tidal water when the water is completely unstressed, and there is no movement either way in the tidal stream, and which occurs before the direction of the tidal stream reverses…” – Wikipedia

More incite: When you see a boat in the mud tipped over, have no fear. It’s most likely the owner misjudged the tides and soon the water will be back to fill up.

Boater rules. It is boaters curtsy and I think law that you’re never supposed to pass by a boater in need of help. [article] You could save their life, even if at the moment they seam to be fine.

Currents. Currents are whats happening underneath. When you get near large objects like bridges, boulders, etc. The water rushes more and is stronger to get around those objects.  Think of the SF Bay as a big bottle of water with a  small neck (the golden Gate Bridge) that poor into another bottle of water and it takes 6 hours to pour on to the other bottle. As it pours back into the SF Bay it fills all the little bays as it goes back out to sea it’s sucks the water from the shore line leaving sometimes 4 to 20 feet of mud depending where you are at. This is world wide. If you don’t want to be stuck in the mud, plan on coming out of the water at high tide. However, you also want to think about the direction of the current. It’s a delicate balance of knowing the current. Sometimes, excuse my language but it can be a bitch going against the current! So there are 2 known factors tides and current. The wild card is weather / wind factor. You can go with a current but against the wind. And honestly I don’t know what is worse. And then there is light. Ya, you got it planned out on paper, but what about sunset? Will you be able to see when you get out? And if it’s cloudy or near mountains or cliffs you can loose hours of good light!  Whew, thats a lot to think about. But you should always think about it!! One time when I was in Zion National Park we didn’t start a hike until 3pm, I know, duh!! Not my fault. Anyway, even though we could see at the top of the mountain. Walking back it was in the straight up dark! The mountains basically had us in a crack in the ground. Luckily I was prepared and had a head lamp light in my arsenal of stuff. Petzel is a great bran. Always buy your adventure gear at REI, I recommend becoming a member worth the bucks. You’ll get it back in lots of lifetime savings!  They are our sponsor and affiliate because I love them!

Headlamps
Petzl Headlamps




A cheaper and great option is this little head lamp that I clip on my hat. Best thing since sliced bread! I love it. I have two one for me and on for a adventure partner. They are usually never prepared. I always wear a baseball cap. If you don’t, it’s not the best option. For me, it is!

I also have one of these clipped on my belt hiking belt. And life jacket. I think it’s great to have at all times. Not exactly a flash ligt but in a emergency it can help guide you hime. However I don’t know how water proof it is. Just don’t be cheap about these items!

Maps or better yet officially called “Charts” A NOAA chart will show you how deep the water is at it normal low level. It will also show ship wrecks the are submerged so boaters with engines don’t run into them.  For me it’s a place to explore and how I found may locations of shipwrecks. They are free on line. If your a boater / kayaker I recommend buying the one of the area you frequent. For me it’s like a treasure map!

[LINK to Charts]

I will up date this blog as I find my shipwrecks during the King Tides.

May Adventure Map. Zoom into Ocean Beach Area, Hunters point and Richmond bridge area on the Richmond side and Point San Pablo. There are layers at the top you can turn on more layers and turn off layers.

 

Have a great adventure, be safe by being wise.

My favorite things review: LIGHTING off the grid USB Fairy Lights and Lantern see video by Stacy Poulos PostcardTravelers

Lights! 5 of the most fantastic products for RV, trailer, campers, boat owners, off the grid, emergency preparer and 3rd world country independent survivors. …And fancy people with unique tastes. Fairy lights that are powered by USB! And Lamps / power banks,  rechargeable by solar. Why do I like ‘fairy lights’? They are pretty. They have a warm feel to them. And they give a warm feel to a room, tent or hut. As you will see I also made a lamp with Fairy lights to go with my candle holder. They don’t take a lot of power to run, are water proof. They are the best thing since sliced bread! Plus I show my USB powered lamp.

Fairy lights

100 Fairy lights USB powered under 10 bucks. There are 2 options one with USB, and one that takes batteries. It’s silly not to go with the USB option. You can always rotate USB type power banks to keep your products fresh with power. See video. I have had battery powered for many years. I never know when it’s going to run out. With USB I can just switch them out.

On the left is a USB powered GoalZero lamp that ALSO has a port for charging other USB devices, it has it's own stand, it can be hung by it's own hook or ring, or magnet!! The right is a sample of a lamp used to hold candles inside a chicken coop wire holder I got at Ross. Then I swewed the fairy lights through the unit and placed the power under the candle. This one is battery powered. I'm going to make a cute platform incase the candle gets it hot. The rest of the room is powered by a USB power bank. sold separately.

Large Power Banks, I bought this over a year ago, I love it. I can power my laptop with it.

Here is another multi purpose USB charger and jump starter that you MUST HAVE! I discovered it when I broke down on my Motorcycle it jump started it 4 times… it’s a Harley. I did another blog about it. Something you want to bring with you small enough to carry on a motorcycle. It also has a flash light. The most inconvenient part is they are hard to get around a batterie.

iClever Jump Start thingie.

This is a great usb charger that you can also re-charge by the sun! Why not have one on had that is solar power. You hope never to really need off the grid, but you have to love knowing you will have it. Keep it in the car incase you end up one of those stories. You were best prepared. Its’s also very reasonably priced. 2 USB out lets. And had a built in flash light. If you were stranded, this is perfect. It is not ‘light’ for backpackers. Logically it has 4 panels so it can charge faster that a 1 and 2 panel.

REI Membership!

These next products are from REI. Before I go on, anytime you can buy from REI I would, it’s absolutely worth the membership price. You get 20% off coupons ever year and for signing up. I think 2 or 4 coupons a year. Every dollar you spend on full price items, you get dividends back! When REI haves deep discounted garage sales only REI members are welcome. What I like most about being a member is there 1 year return policy. You don’t need a receipt, they keep you on file. Join for 20 bucks. You’ll start off by getting a 20% coupon in your email or mail box. Join: http://bit.ly/2SPI8Z5

USB Lanterns

GoalZero Lamp with big results. Rechargeable with USB connection or Solar USB at REI Goal Zero Lighthouse Core Electric Lantern & USB Power Hub (about 50.00 well worth the money invested). Ps you can also barrow the power to charge devices.

Power Banks 

Then to charge them you need USB, you probably already have them.

REI Goal Zero Flip 10 Portable Charger (built in USB flip connector) I like this because it has a built in USB plug AND level indicator lights. Most don’t so you never know how low your battery is.

Goal Zero Sherpa 40 Power Pack a little more spendy but will last a lot longer. Fairy light don’t take much power. And the more capabilities one bank has the less you have to carry around.

Take a unique trip back in San Francisco time at the ‘San Francisco History Days’ held every year in March. Here, History enthusiast dress up in authentic period clothing to add to the atmosphere. There are many booths that represent Historical organizations and museums all over the Bay area. Mostly in SF. My favorite booth was the Pacific Bus Museum sense I have already have been there in Fremont. There were representatives from all over. This is a great resource for researching History, locations, actors, etc. there are endless possibilities all at the Old Mint, which is a vault as a perfect setting. “…dozens of organizations celebrating and telling the stories of the City’s unique past. We invite you to meet community historians, archivists, genealogists, archaeologists, researchers, educators, re-enactors, and other history enthusiasts at this FREE, all-ages weekend event at the historic site.’ (List of 2018 exhibitors)

Here is a little teaser video of what it’s like on the inside.

Live at Hiller Aviation Museum By Stacy Poulos Postcard Travelers

Visit Hiller Aviation Museum 601 Skyway Rd, San Carlos, CA 94070

This is such a great place! Real airplanes hanging from the ceiling. Vintage airplanes and replicas  of the first airplanes including ones that never left the ground. In their words:  “The Hiller Aviation Museum engages the community in the human spirit of adventure, discovery and innovation. Through compelling exhibits and immersive programs, the museum provides a stimulating environment with multiple ways for public audiences to experience the adventure of aviation, its future promise and its history in California, and to use aviation as a gateway for exploring science, history and technology.” I’ll say! This place is great for kids and adults.  Check out my live mini tour video and bonus video flying inside a PT-17 in a Air show for the Tuskegee Airmen. PT-17 were there Trainer Planes.

I have a lot of History with flying and I have a correction to make about this video, my grandfather George Stein worked for Hughes Aircraft where was one of the 3rd persons to fly over the Atlantic Ocean in the China Clipper (not 42nd as I stated in the video). He also worked on the Space Shuttle for NASA and engineered and modified old bomber aircraft planes so they can add new technology computers to them. His Company was Stein Engineering. At one point we had a wind tunnel built in our living room for NASA. As a child the 1st Airplane I flew in landed in the water; Catalina Seaplanes, I’m in love with them! Of course after I flew, in many commercial airplanes that landed on the ground. As a young adult I flew around Catalina Island in a Cessna 150 sword fish spotting, the Pilot let me take hold of the rains. Later I was one of the independent camera at the 1 Air Show Honoring the Tuskegee Airmen and interviewed the 1st Black Pilots of America and the 1st Black General of America Benjamin O. Davis Jr. Which also landed me to have the honor of Flying in the lead Airplane with the president of the Confederate Air force Milo Tichacek in his PT-17 (see the bonus video inside that flight!). Then I flew in the  nose of a B-25 Bomber the  gunner seat. Eventually upside down in a P-51 and a an old Beechcraft. I’ve also flown in the channel 5 helicopter, and a police helicopter. Whew! So as you can imagine I had the aviation bug all my life. Eventually I took a lesion with California Airways with Keith Amaro and got to fly over the Golden gate bridge in a Cessna 172! Basically; lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky …and lucky!!
