This was my camp at Lakes of Fire, along with another couple of honorary campmates. So. Much. Fun. It was so worth it to put together a theme camp this year. Next year I wanna go (a little) bigger!

This was at Midway Airport, just above where you get out from security. It's a 3D model of Lake Michigan, as if you took the entire body of water, froze it, shrunk it down to scale, and hung it in the rafters. Pretty awesome. I found some stuff online about Great Lakes bathymetry, but no 3D explorable view, unfortunately.

First, a random sunset scene from Portand, where I was waiting for my friend Molly to pick me up after my first couple time-killing forays around town. And then below, another more epic shot of Lake Sammamish that lies just East of Bellevue. This is the one I posted from a run earlier in the week.

Pork belly skewer at Biwa: $3. I stopped at this place right after getting off the road from Seattle. And they gave me a hot towel! Perfect. And then grilled meat skewers. Even better. Other assorted good times in Portland last night.

I'm starting marathon training, but still dealing with some leg pain. Seems like it's probably tendonitis in one or two of the tendons that come up around my inner ankle. Trying a bunch of different things in physical therapy, today they put me on this crazy electrode dealy. Feels like it maybe did some noticeable good!

I couldn't even get in to the lawn area, but found a good spot on the bridge. Luckily other friends who got there too late to meet our party inside spotted me, and a good time was still had. A similar story happened about the same time last year, with She & Him. Gotta try to go to one of these free shows with a really obscure band instead.

Well, not much anyway. That's the title of the new Dawes album though. Saw them at The Vic on Friday and picked up the new CD there (when's the last time I bought a CD?). Been listening on repeat ever since. Which is good since I needed some good soundtrack for all the weekend's many projects. The apartment is like 349% less cluttered, and many things are built and prepped for Lakes of Fire in three weeks.

This was the day after my big party last weekend. After waiting out torrential rain to clean up the backyard, Mitchell and I headed out to Bridgman, MI. My main goal for the day was to catch the sunset from across the lake, and mission accomplished. Bonus, Chrissy had secured a "Relaxation Station" (AKA Intoxication Station). It was great for beach lounging (and horseplay), and even better for water lounging in the heat of the following day, despite the chilly water:

First time I ever made ribs, they came out pretty great. The key flavor I think came from the dried guajillo peppers I put in the rub. It rained all afternoon while I was smoking them, but things dried up by mid-evening when most of the people were at the party.
