Currently in Bend, OR for a little snowboarding at Mt. Bachelor. I drove up on Monday and hit the slopes with my buddy Chris yesterday and today. There hasn't been much in the way of fresh snow but the groomed runs are still pretty nice. Been doing a lot of work, too, so on the whole there hasn't been much time to sit around and write.

I got a last-minute deal on a lovely vacation rental across the river from downtown. Just $100 a night and it's NICE - way, way, way better than your typical hotel. You can't just waltz in, you have to sign a contract, and in a curious twist it is actually required that you own a cell phone to close the deal. You also have to do your own laundry, but that's not such a big deal since there's a washer and dryer right in the unit. Anyway, what good fortune. I'm not very fond of hotels and motels, but this place is exceedingly private, quiet, and tasteful. Just how I like it.

Tomorrow we're heading off to Breitenbush for a faerie gathering. Normally I'm not so much into the woo-woo but this year I might suspend my usual eye-rolling and approach it all more sincerely. But I'm also going to bring a lot of whiskey and beef jerky, the hippy-dippy vegetarian angle is still not hugely appealing.

After that, it's up to BC to visit my dad, and then Vancouver to see my mum for a bit. Then, who knows? I'm sure there will be interesting things to report...
