Today’s Theme is Buffalo

Before our South Dakota trip, I had one goal: to see a buffalo up close. Also, to eat buffalo. That part was easy enough: I ended up having buffalo, in one form or another, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner today. Seeing a buffalo? That was a little trickier. It was looking like a bust three-quartersContinue reading “Today’s Theme is Buffalo”

Montana is Huge

After a long day of driving – emphasis on long, because holy shit, did you know that Montana is huge?! – we arrived in Rapid City a little before 9:00 this evening. We actually woke up at 3:45 in Post Falls, Idaho, and were on the road by 5:00 a.m. Barely spent any time inContinue reading “Montana is Huge”

Rarely have I looked forward to the change in seasons more. Our poor Columbia River Gorge hasContinue reading ““I Don’t Even Know You!””

Dogs and Pigs

We went to an anti-Trump rally disguised as a rock concert Saturday night. And it was great. Even casual Pink Floyd fans should know that Roger Waters is one of the most political and outspoken musicians in the business. When he performed “Money” and the video screen behind the stage cut to photos of TrumpContinue reading “Dogs and Pigs”

Wanderlust In Our Blood

I want to start off by saying that I love the Pacific Northwest. This should be obvious to anybody who has ever read my blog. It’s been my home for almost 23 years now, and I always figured I’d spend the rest of my life here. I probably will. But maybe I won’t. When IContinue reading “Wanderlust In Our Blood”
