Clubman Puch:

August 27th, 2011
Wesley Eader, a dear friend of mine, sold me a near mint condition 1970's Austro-Daimler (Puch Clubman) a couple of months back that has since shaped the world of outdoor recreation in my life. Recently another good friend, James Seymour, did a desperately needed overhaul tuneup of the bicycle, making ...

As per birthday request my brother Isaac and I climbed up Mount Hood a couple of Thursdays ago. We did not summit, even though we were but only a few hundred feet from doing so, due to the ice fall hazards fast approaching. However, we did run into a rare ...

Patience. It has been a long time coming and I honestly wouldn't be surprised if there were yet another problem to fix. However, for the time being, appearances lend me to believe my motorcycle is officially ready to roam freely amongst nearby regions. I don't want to take it far ...

Although the entire situation was beyond ominous, could I look back and say I was afraid? The answer, of course, is yes. No climbing experience has been as frightening as entering a dead-end gully taken off Leuthold Couloir's proper route and at the end of such a gully nearly depleting ...

Trip Report - Mount Shasta:

May 22nd, 2011
A day spent with family on Mother's Day later continued pressing southward solo to Mount Shasta. Being alone atop Casaval Ridge was both peaceful and a little frightening at times, but the trip was wholly worthwhile and not a moment passed when I felt in danger. Having captured nearly 3 ...

Receive a sunny day and be refreshed. Beside the climate, Oregon isn't all that different geographically from some place tropical, say Hawaii or Peru. That isn't to say those places don't carry their own merit, on the contrary I think of them far grander, but it's in an effort to ...

Portland rains. A lot. Someone told me today it is marked the second wettest city in the United States and I did not want to believe it. Avalanche danger atop the many nearby mountains hasn't helped my stifled need for adventure, either, but at least all of this has provided ...

Cory Dauber at The Jade Lounge:

April 10th, 2011
After a gentle day of cleaning house, reading Christ's revelation and hiking a few thousand feet of Gorge cliff along the Columbia my brother Isaac and myself attended a quiet show at the Jade Lounge. Several friends sung, beat drums, blew harmonicas and plucked guitars to an intimate audience in ...

What a busy week. What a busy season! Busyness has been so immense as of late that I have lost sight of the importance of regular exercise. Physical lethargy has plagued me the past couple of months and I never thought I would get like this, since I have always ...

Trip Report - 6 Summits, 32 Hours:

February 24th, 2011
Would somewhere around six months be too long a period to hold off on writing a climbing report? Perhaps, but this is the six summits report, so let's just say I wrote a little for each mountain each month. Regardless of the details about my writers block, the details about ...
