My friend Jay Nicholas has authored many¬†amazing books over the years, but just recently launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help launch his biggest project yet – The Salmon Fisher’s Journal. The Salmon Journal is an intricate story built around the Chinook. The reader will learn much about fishing technique here, but the author’s infatuation with […]

I boarded the Iceland Air flight from Copenhagen late on a Monday night, and during the entire trip, the jet chased the final Gold Laces of light in the West. The sun had yet to set in Iceland when I landed just before midnight… a crazy thing to experience, and I was immediately thankful it […]

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 […]

Flip flops, beer cans, […]

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 […]
