An Ode to Andy And Sarah
I’ve done a few “odes” to
people   -and of course, the Duke – but I
realized that they have unfortunately been inspired by a tragic loss, and I
decided that it would be better   -or at

to people who are alive and mos...

Alaskan ski adventure part II
After flying out of the Alaska Range a bit prematurely the obvious question was:  what next? first things first: It's hard to get fresh hot decadent chocolate brownie topped with ice cream and whipped cream on the glacier! And we were stoked to be in a "cam...

A Walk in the Park

Hokkaido Powder Heaven
Five years ago Ashley and I succumbed to the reports of epic powder in Japan that we had heard about, and despite never being that interested in Japan or its culture (not sure why, really...it's old, rich, complicated, and fascinating) we went over for a qu...
