Ernesto

Ernesto grew up in southern California and has been climbing in the Joshua Tree area for over 40 years. He’s a dedicated climber and divides his time between Joshua Tree and Idylwild. He’s a carpenter and runs a business sustainably harvesting salvaged wood for fine woodworking projects. Some of his work can be seen at the local restaurant Pie for the People.


His “flip top” camper was pretty impressive. He was able to open up the sleeping top within a matter of seconds. He mostly had carpentry tools in his vehicle for work on the go, but his sentimental objects included his guitar and climbing shoes. He has perfected his transient lifestyle and he said it took him years to find the perfect vehicle for life on the road.

This is a blog about transient lifestyles. I'm fascinated by people who live on the road for extended periods of time and I want to document what kinds of objects people decide to bring when there is limited space.  I'm particularly interested in asking about objects with sentimental or aesthetic value. What are the excess possessions that people bring for comfort or decoration, and what might this say about their character and identity? 

Joshua Tree National Park attracts a lot of interesting travelers and I want to share the stories of the people that I encounter here.
