This spring I taught several one-night adventure/travel writing workshops in Seattle, Lake Tahoe, San Diego, Los Angeles and Bend. After the workshops, I received dozens of emails from students, all asking the same question: What’s next?
In August 2016, I was invited to be part of the Stay Wild EXPO at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Oregon. They called the event “the world’s first adventure festival,” and I gave a backcountry cooking demonstration with Snow Peak. We made cobbler. And mimosas.
Rashaun is one of my best girlfriends: we’ve known each other since we battled our way through a biology class together in college. I’ve known Dampier since he met Rashaun at Dick’s Drive-In while Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were filming the White Walls music video. They’re both genuine, creative, loyal friends, so I couldn’t have been happier when Dampier told me he was going to propose to Rashaun.
It’s my dog’s third birthday! I’ve recently been getting questions about him, so I’m using this as an excuse to tell his story.
Huckleberry was given a gorgeous new coat, which was handmade by Janet. She designed it, sized it perfectly, and even hand-waxed the canvas. Obviously it needed to be taken for a romp in the snow.
I recently spent a fun weekend collaborating with folks from Rite in the Rain, a Tacoma-based company that makes waterproof notebooks and other all-weather writing products.
I travel a lot, so I’m always begging friends and family to watch Huckleberry, my two-year-old Lab/Great Dane mix. A couple of weeks ago, he was staying with a photographer who shoots weddings and engagement photos—and this happened.
