Day One

Our first summer road trip had us venturing across the country with a destination of Hood River, Oregon. My sister J- and her husband B- were perfect hosts for the week. Eight of us piled into their Columbia River Gorge home and had great fun through the week. Their lives are filled with biking, hiking, skiing: Nordic and downhill, mountain biking, paddle boarding and, of course, wind surfing. Here in their garage the many different size sails are lined up in their bags. Ready to go when the wind comes up just right. Neatness is a virtue for them.

  11. How appealing. I came from a long line of neat people, but the gene skipped right by me.

  15. They are so busy, Birdman, how do they find the time to take pictures and write their blogging posts?

    Thanks for your motivating comment on HDP today. Yes, Sir!

  16. City boys like me find this hard to understand, although I'm sure your family must enjoy it. My idea of outdoor adventure is a walk from my office to the Arch.
