Our family is going through some mighty big changes as of late.
Staci is getting 'out there' with her business doing trainings, Sahalie and Spencer are rapidly maturing.
I'm quitting Deschutes Brewery after 7 years (I quit the first time after 6). The 'plan' is to create my own super special brewery up here in the woods. I've got a blog that I've started to tell the story of what we are calling 'Sahalie'.
Please go to
to check out what I've begun. It's going to be a long road, but I'm really excited about the possibilities!
It's kind of funny that after so long in the industry that I've decided to put myself in my garage with rather antiquated equipment, but I think I've got a pretty good angle to do something that no one else is doing (which is either going to prove smart or stupid, by the way).
After about 9 years since Staci and I left on our traveling odyssey, it feels real good to be chasing a dream again.

Late Winter!

We got quite a bit of snow last night.
Cleared up today, went for a ski and then cleared the driveway (with a little bit of OCD).
It's all going to be melting and muddy soon; we'll take this any day.
We've got more snow now than any time this winter!
