That guy over there on the right is me, David Heldreth, the author of Trippy Dave. Anyone dropping by here will get a look into the preparation and progress of my first big journey out of the U.S. and into the Caribbean. I’m relocating to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands to start my new job as the Production Manager and sometime Sports Writer for the BVI Beacon.
I’ve been a journalist for over six years now and have lived in Barstow, California and John Day, Oregon working for two small publications. I’m happy to be moving out of the snow and desert into the sunny equator.
I’m hoping to use my new home in Road Town as a base to explore and write about the various Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Cuba and South America. I hear there’s good cigars and rum in the area. It should be fun to try and relive the fantasies of my favorite authors as I try to write my way into the best sellers myself.
