Fire Starter

Yesterday I went out to my friend Gabe's ranch in Twickenham to help his family do some prescribed burning. They have some 1000+ acres of land filled with sage, juniper, bunch grass, and other high-desert fauna. Their ranch runs from the scenic John Day River up to the rim rock of Table Mountain. Needless to say, the weather conditions conspired against us. The temperature hovered in the mid 40s and the lack of wind prevented me from getting any sustained fire going. I'm sure Rochelle and Bill are disappointed by my lack of fire abilities!

On Saturday, Rochelle and I attended an UO Ducks game at Autzen Stadium. We had a lot of fun, and I'm sure that it helped that Oregon completely trounced Washington State. Sitting beside us was a really interesting older lady. Ducks fans are renowned for being fanatics, and she definitely fit the bill. During the game we were treated with many of her colorful expressions, most unfortunately are unfit to post here. ;)

Praying for snow

A few days ago our local hill Mt. Bachelor got a good dusting. I think it was around 10 inches of snow, but the fanatics were out anyways hiking the cone and what-not. As for me, I'm waiting for a bit more. =)
