Home improvement


Got a wild hair and demoed the old rickety balcony a couple months ago. Demo is fun. I replaced the deck some weeks ago with John's help. 


This weekend I put up the uprights and rails. Pretty bomber and not so bad on the eyes, either. It'll look better when I've finished the rail and stained the wood and then we get the house repainted.

Bogus Basin Adult Ski Days





The season's winding down, but we did have some good days.





Charli and the Sidecar



Great to see this rig on the road again!


Charli doesn't look so certain. Neither does Jan. But Cathy did great.

A friendly reminder


You can stream the two most recent episodes of Range Life at Radio Free America, anytime. (I fixed the streaming link on this page, too.)

Never, ever, ever vote for anyone who gets money from the NRA

A thought experiment from Timothy Egan, on the heels of another horrific and preventable tragedy of guns.
Let me try another take for you bad parents in office. Pretend you live in a pleasant, well-protected community of like-minded people, and you’re in charge. O.K., you don’t have to pretend. And let’s say there was a natural gas leak every three days in one of the homes in that community, a leak that killed entire families.
Your response would be to pray and do nothing. Or to pray and talk about everything except the gas leak. Or to pray and say you’re powerless to act because the gas company owns you. The response of those suffering would be to take control and kick you out. That’s what we have to do, and will, next November.

Laos and Cambodia


This October, we spent 3.5 weeks in Laos and Cambodia. 



An absolutely amazing trip.





And since I can't seem to find the time in my ample open hours wandering the house in the middle of the night due to jetlag to write anything of substance, I will photodump.






I hope to put more here. I kept journals. But, life.






That's a cricket. 




More to come.
