Progress is 2 consecutive years of 5 days away from the desk!
I am thrilled to be able to journey back to Oregon two years in a row and have what used to be assumed in the American workplace, a little thing called Vacation.
I’ll be attending my college’s 25th reunion in Portland, bringing along my daughter and niece for the family salmon BBQ and a few short hikes with College Outdoors, let them see a most beautiful campus on the West Coast, and then drive them to the Oregon Coast for a music camp. Next, it’s 2 days of complete solo R&R for me!! Intention is to hike as much as possible in 48 hours in the glorious old growth along the North Coast before returning to endless butt-sitting at the desk.
How I wish I was a photographer with enough gear and know-how to be able to take one of this man’s workshops. Weather permitting, I will try staying up on a coastal beach into the night to take a mental photograph of the sky.
