Time has been rolling by quickly as of late. ¬†My daughters finished up 3rd and Kindergarten. ¬†Summer started ( late due to snowpocalypse ), and we have already been on some great adventures. And of course I haven’t been musing about them enough here on the blog. ¬†So here are a few quick snapshots from […]

For a few years now I have been running a little web app called Cone Patrol¬†that simply notifies the snow riders of Central Oregon when there is new snow at Mt. Bachelor. ¬†Users send a text with their preferred snow amount – say 4″ of powder – and when the mountain receives four or more […]

Growing up in the Seattle area in the 90’s was quite amazing. ¬†The region was massively less-populated than the King County of today – traffic back then would be considered a delight to many now I’m certain. ¬†Fortunately I had some parents that trusted me enough to do things like drive to the Kitsap Peninsula […]

Spring is upon us, and¬†for the most part, the Snow is Gone from most¬†spots. ¬†This also means that many anglers¬†have the¬†itch¬†to get out on the water. ¬†And as the rush of spring flows subsides in our favorite streams, the high water lines will likely be littered with trash from seasons past.

Vacation homes are always an adventure.¬† This past week we stayed at a place on the Oregon coast outside of Tillamook in small bedroom community called¬†Cape Meares. ¬†The area has an interesting past – it is near an old resort community named Bayocean, that was eventually washed away by the mighty Pacific. ¬†The location was […]

Yesterday I went to visit some Old Friends¬†( <– you really should open that in another tab and give it a listen ), with one of my best friends. ¬†Smith Rock is a magical place – not certain how else to explain it. ¬†My first years living in Central Oregon I spent countless hours at […]

From time to time I post things to this blog on accident. ¬†Reason being, I’m fortunate enough to work alongside 500+ amazing people around the world to make WordPress and other Internet things a bit more awesome each day. Right now I’m working on the post editor and crafting many test posts. So to apologize […]

Well perhaps the title should read: 40 Year Dream – but the song is called 40 Day Dream, and really – my 40th birthday kind of felt like a day dream. ¬†Like many weekends in the winter, the one that occupied my birthdate happened to be one that required us to be away from home […]

A few times a year I get the chance to travel to interesting places for work. ¬†Earlier this month, I joined my team in¬†New Orleans for a week of time spent working together on projects and exploring the sights, sounds, and deep cultural history of this amazing city. On some of these work¬†trips, I pack […]

Burning out of control That won’t help see’mon, see’mon… Get Up, Stand Up – Get Up, Stand Up by Toots and The Maytals It seems there is no shortage of causes to rally behind today in the United States. ¬†Tune into any media outlet, and one can easily find¬†something¬†to get fired up about. ¬†Regardless of […]
