I am on a flight to southern Africa for an undisclosed amount of time. Sometimes all you want is a familiar voice. Lame update.

I hope everyone had a great (US) Thanksgiving. I just finished making 13 quarts of turkey stock, and several gallons of turkey rice stew.

I'm looking at getting into alpine touring/Randonee skiing. I just picked up some Dynastar Gaia boots on a wicked black friday discount, and was wondering if anyone has any advice on skis and bindings. I used to ski about

I need advice. Where should I eat, what should I see in Portland and Seattle? It looks like I've got a trip happening in October! I'm spending about 2.5 days in each place.

Two great Thai restaurants in Portland - Cha Ba Thai and Tuk Tuk. Cha Ba Thai does vegan dishes - I have some vegan friends who love it and introduced me to it. (I'm not vegan, so I can't say whether Tuk Tuk does vegan, but their food is good, assuming you like Thai.)

Dragonfish is a great Sushi restaurant and there's a cool bar called 9 Million in Unmarked Bills, both in Seattle. In Portland, you -have- to find a food cart called Brunchbox and try the "You Can Has Cheezburger". If you're not vegan that is-- it's a bacon cheeseburger that has two grilled cheese sandwiches instead of buns... it's amazing. There's also Portland City Grill, which is a nice place up in a skyscraper with amazing gazpacho, tempura fried calamari, and great views of the city. As for stuff to see and do, the Seattle Gum Wall is gross and amazing at the same time, and in Portland you'll find tons of cool stuff up on Burnside Street. smile Have a great time!

I just spent the last 3 weeks working a job with a guy who was part of a Sudanese child army. His stories were mind blowing. He was so mater of fact about everything that he'd gone through.

I saw northern lights for the first time. Not the most spectacular showings, but some faint green and peach colors were enough to keep me standing...

Wow, I bet he could write some interesting books.

I hope to see the northern lights some day.

Having good sleep makes a big difference in life!

Sometimes you need to ask yourself why you seek out what you do.
