What Era Would You Visit?


A change of scenery and a change of pace can feel good.

This month’s question is: What past era would you like to travel back to and why?




Amanda Herbst, Kings Beach

Student on gap year

Early 2000s, when technology was really becoming mainstream, and experiencing it as an adult rather than a child.

Robert Bonilla, Incline Village


During the life of Jesus Christ. According to the Bible, a lot of crazy stuff going on at that time I wish I could witness.

Kcee: 2007 summertime in Kings Beach, longboarding with my three-legged pit, Bubbas. He lived to be 17 years old, as of last year.

Riley Reger, Truckee


France in the 1970s because I think it is the perfect time and place of an intersection between music and arts, and also intellectualism and culture.

Kristeen Humbert, Kings Beach


Back to the Old West days, like 1883 era, maybe a little past that, because those were even rougher times. The old western, riding horses, carrying a gun on your hip.

    Lived: OH-TX-OK-CA-NY-CA Visited (work and/or non-work): many states all over the U.S., MX, Canada, Central & South America, Asia & Europe. High on my wish list is Ireland, all over Africa, New Zealand, Russia, Norway, China, Iran, Bhutan, Ecuador, Iceland, Bali, Baja .... well, okay, any/everywhere would be great to visit. Worked: photo, film/video, manual labor, high finance, menial, profound. Someone recently asked me, "You like to talk to people that others don't like to talk to?" I answered that I do like doing that, as much as talking to anyone else, but it's not "a thing" for me that I'm especially into. A day or two later, it struck me why I was asked that - because a lot of people are not like that ... not like me in that way. I'm glad I'm not like others in that way. ¡All for fun and fun for all!
