Best for Breakfast

The past 6 weeks I’ve been road tripping around, showing Patrick the west coast. We borrowed a camper and flitted from lake to lake, friends to family.

Vancouver, post 2

The research so far in Vancouver has uncovered slim pickings for BC. It makes sense- BC developed later, much later, than the rest of the West Coast. The population is still only about 4 million- meaning there are more residents in greater Seattle than in the entire province of British Columbia. Excepting the (smaller) Gold […]


Planning to resume the hunt tomorrow afternoon at the VPL after a few days at the cabin with my family. I can see the patches of bright blue sky and the reflections of pine trees on my computer screen as I try to catch up after taking this time off. Almost done compiling my LA notes. […]
