Injured Again

Well after about 9 months of rehabbing my right shoulder after shattering it at the end of last ski season, I’ve gone ahead and fractured my left shoulder in almost the exact same way. But the injury came after the best powder morning of the season and resulted in a season-ending fall.

Early Season Splitboarding

New record! I’m not sure I’ve ever ridden as early as I did this year on October 20th, 2019. Previously, it’s always been more near the first couple weeks of November up on Mt. Rainier, but this year I scored a couple nice splitboarding lines up in the Mt. Baker backcountry extra early season.

Little Baby Goats

My brother and sister-in-law purchased a house in the desert outside Tucson, AZ with enough land for some goats. Growing up my brother and I had angora goats… so I’ve always likes goats. I blinked and now my brother has 7 or so Nigerian dwarf goats and they are so funny.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking but they are those little goats that tweak out and climb all over everything… wire wheels, tire stacks, atv’s and even cars, they’ll climb it all.

Scorpion Hunting in the Southern Arizona Desert

The first time I visited my brother and sister in law at their new house outside Tucson they told me there were no scorpions. Well were they wrong or what! They are everywhere and each hunt usually yields around 4-5 of them.

A blacklight makes them easy to spot and cool looking for a photo before hitting them with the blow torch.
