Westport, WA
Edit: Apparently blogger ate half this post when I posted it originally. Fixed it 10amPST 7/9/11

I'm camping out tonight for the first time in almost a week - I've been spoiled recently by having friends and family to stay with, and using a hostel while up in Vancouver. Potlatch Saturday night was the last time I camped, and even that didn't feel much like camping (5 beers probably helped that). When I was driving to find a campsite tonight, I almost stopped at a motel advertising rooms for $35, because I really didn't feel like camping. Yet here I am, camping, and enjoying it.

Whistle While You Work

Vancouver, BC and Camano Island, WA - I wrote half last night and was too tired to finish it

It's a little difficult to type on the computer right now, because my left shoulder doesn't seem to want to be comfortable no matter what position I put it in.  It's sore from when I wiped out on the third turn of the day when I went mountain biking at Whistler yesterday.

Independence Day

Seattle, WA

Last night I jumped 25 feet down off the roof of a boat into Lake Washington.  The boat had about 30 other people on it, four of whom I'd met the night before and the rest I'd met an hour or so before when I got to the boat.

My life can get pretty surreal at times.
