  • Desolation (not!) Sound 2012

    What did you do on your summer vacation? Went to school. Boat school, that julietta casino online is! We passed all our exams (Bruce is now a qualified skipper), and cruised the most beautiful waters available, and rafted up with dear friends too. Wow. We need to do this again soon.

  • RSVP 2011

    Jake and dad completed their third-in-a-row RSVP ride from Seattle to Vancouver BC (and party). This made Jake the youngest rider in the event for three years running (as far as we know) at age 12 this past summer. His first was age 10. Bruce survived the ride with a broken finger, road rash, and…

    Boy Scout Troop 600 hiked up the ice-glazed stone steps toward the lake and the Dragontail, and the enjoyed the beautiful last weekend of October with vistas of the peaks and Colchuck Glacier. Bruce was one of the lucky dads to make the trip (and this may be a first–was the oldest (!) dad on…

  • Grand Canyon

    We had perfect weather and a perfectly hot 128 F temp at the bottom of the canyon. Linda & Jake rode the mules, and Bruce went on his own two feet. We stayed in a rustic cabin at Phantom Ranch down there, with an air conditioner that dropped the temp in the cabin all the…

  • Missions Tour 2010

    Ready to Roll! We’ve converged upon Sonoma, in the heart of wine country, and at the end of the Mission Trail, where Padre Junipero Serra’s dream ends, and ours begins.

  • I-5 weekend

    Another father-son bonding experience–23 hours in the car together, from Nana’s house in Rancho PV, to Seattle. Did the In-N-Out Burger vs. Burgermaster taste test.  Good ol’  Burg’master won hands down, though In-N-Out gets an honorable mention for real potato tasting fries.

  • Transitional weather

    Transitional weather. This is a euphemism for snow crystals in August. But we also had sunshine. Cold sunshine. The mountain played peek-a-boo with the clouds & we were treated to the wonders of Wonderland yet again. Awesome! Thank God for father-son times liket this.

  • RSVP 2010 edition

                    For the second year in a row, Jake earned the white jersey as the best youngest rider. This year we had brilliant sun and brutal headwinds, which turned Chuckanut Drive into a welcome respite. We snapped a shift cable Saturday morning, and did a roadside MacGiver fix which got us up and down the hills…
