I suppose I’ve been thinking about this post for a while, and now being a parent to 2 kids, I could say that I maybe have a little introduction into this field, but fully realize that me and my wonderful wife are at the beginning of the journey of being a parent.  Not sure ifRead more

Mt Hood – wedding weekend

With a wedding at Timberline we finally had a reason to get a room at the lodge up there.  With the air quality changing daily it was interesting to get a couple of perspectives up there.

Rat Race 2018

In the 6 (yes time flies), yes 6 years since we have lived here, somehow we have always been away for the Drink Water Rat Race.  This year with scheduled Europe trip coming later in the year, I was keen on getting up to ride in what is quickly becoming one of the PNW mostRead more

Mexico Surfing

Hottest Weekend of the Year

This weekend was the hottest day of the year so far in Portland and definitely the hottest day of the year at the beach.  97′ the car said when we left, but thats easily the hottest i’ve seen it in 5 years.  As you can see it looked more somewhere tropical than Oregon this weekend.Read more
