They aren’t meant to be funny or interesting, but you might find them to be anyway. Enjoy! 1 We sat down at the Cocktail Lounge tucked away in a dusty corner of the storied El […]

Close Encounter With a Wild Beast

It was just one of those mornings. “Do not – I repeat – do not get too close, Iza,” says Peter with that all-knowing look of my devious side. “Of course,” I retort. “I’m not fucking around, you don’t want to mess with them.” Ignoring him completely, I bounded towards the rickety fence along the […]

The Canyon With a Thousand Tongues

Today we spent the better part of our morning winding down and stomping up in utter amazement and awe in the natural spectacle that is Bryce Canyon National Park. The hoodoos – carved over millions of years by water, wind, and sexual innuendo – were amazing in their own right. However, I noticed something different […]

Life At Your Own ‘Pace’

Earlier this week we stayed in St. George, Utah with our friends Andy, Jolene, and their adorable baby, Natalie – the Pace family. Not only were they beyond hospitable, their life in motion reminded us of how easy it is to cultivate a life that is enjoyable as much as it is fruitful. Andy and […]

Ain’t No Mountain High, Ain’t No Valley Low

There is truly no song that can better represent the literal and physical highs and lows we went through on our brief trip to Death Valley than Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.

From the Valley Floor

Few things in life these days are capable of living up to the heaps of expectation and hype we place on them. The Super Bowl is rarely worth watching, dessert is always a bad idea, and The Force Awakens was actually just a cheap rip-off of A New Hope with fancier explosions and worse acting. […]

Paul Bunion’s Beautiful Chest Hair

Winding through the meandering path of Redwood National Park, flanked by the world’s tallest trees and a fine, misty beachside fog, we come to a clearing of a grassy field, a jammed parking lot, and the biggest f*#$#% statue of Paul Bunion and his trusty blue ox, Babe, either of us had ever seen.

Lasagna, A Bat, And A Broomstick

According to history, bats have variably been referred to as flutterers, bald mice, old batters, fleder mauser, slang bats, vagabonds, and my personal favorite, flitter mice.  To two grown adults hiding under a table and four others trying mercilessly to get one out of a rented mountain cabin – blood sucking tiny Dracula fixated on raising hell and spreading […]

Pit Stop Americana

The day started peacefully with hot coffee breath fogging against cool misty ocean air. With steamed eggs and overnight oats in our bellies, we took off around 8am to buzz back up the coast towards the ti-cities. We spent a night with Peter’s parents, Lisa & Jim, at a Comfort Inn in Kennewick to break up the […]
