Summer Writing Webinar Series

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?

Backcountry Brunch

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’s Surprise Engagement

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.

Huckleberry’s New Coat

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.

Rite in the Rain

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.

This Photobomb

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.
