    Razor clamming

    M and I spent a real pleasant weekend with a friend at her house down on the northern Oregon coast. Big plans were made to dig razor clams at a middling low tide about an hour before dark. We did good, had a ball, and ate like kings:).

    Owyhee River and Hell's Canyon camp/hike.

    M and I returned last week from about 10 days over in far eastern Oregon. Mighty pretty places. Here's some pictures from the Owyhee country. I'll tell you, that is some pretty far out in the deep boonies high desert canyon lands. Good place to go if you like to be all by yourself. Make...

    John Day River, whitewater raft trip

    Just back from a four day float. Central Oregon, basalt canyon country. One class 4 and a few class 3 rapids, but the rest is just splashes and giggles for a 14 foot raft with a rowing frame. 70 miles, three nights camping in deep backcountry. I went with a good friend who has done this...

    Yellow jacket refuge :)

    We, like many around here, have had an above average yellow jacket population this summer. It was a mildish winter and we've had unusually warm and dry weather for most of this season...ideal for the troublesome critters. Many places they have been really bad...here at home just somewhat...

    New to me, not new :)

    Just recently bought a neighbor's old DR All-Terrain Mower. After 20 years or so, he decided he was ready for a new one. I got it for very little money..."good neighbor discount". Of course, it looked like crap, needed a new battery and blade belt, had a tire that wouldn't hold air, filters...

    Way back machine...remembraces from an old climber

    I followed a bot or visitor or who knows what on the who's online page to this set of pictures. Not sure how that worked, because it's still an active thread with current posts, but that's over my head... Anyway, I'm vain enough to bring them forward. From this link see three or four more...

    More Utah

    I am inspired by Jerry B's fine thread sharing his Mendocino Coast pictures with us, to do something that's been at the back of my mind for a bit. A couple of years ago M and I spent a month in SW Utah, camping and hiking. Most of you will recall that trip, as well as others to Utah and other...

    Spring???

    Well, on the first day of spring M and I had the Jaguar out for a top down drive over to friend's home for a party. Nice sunny day, mid 50's. A fun drive. I'm thinking..."convertible season has arrived!". Parked it up by the house last night since I was burning a couple of brush piles near...

    Tsunami survival capsule

    M and I saw our first one of these down at Bandon, OR last week. Sitting on a small concrete pad in the front yard of an ocean front house...looked like a large lawn ornament :). http://survival-capsule.com/ Spendy...prices on a two person model start at $13,000. I thought it was interesting...

    Oregon Coast Trip, Spring 2018

    We have just returned from a nice visit to the southern Oregon coast. I have posted many pics from the Bandon area in the past, but I'll throw up a few more :). A trip to celebrate M's birthday. We had good weather and lots of fun. Great seafood, too. We spent a week, plenty of time for...

    Another off the grid trip, camping and hiking Nevada

    Just back a day ago from three weeks on what turned out to be a circumnavigation of Nevada backcountry...of which there is quite a lot :). Three days from home to get to our first and primary destination...Great Basin NP. Very lightly visited, mostly because it is way the eff out there on the...

    Antique gear collector?

    I have a safety belt that was originally part of a Swiss Tree Gripper set. Maybe 50 years old, give or take. Leather padded with thick wool felt, and a unique cam clamp for adjusting the primary flip line, which is uncovered cable. There is a secondary cable for limb overs (which would be...
