Raptor + Unicorn = Raptorcorn (the two coolest creates to ever roam the earth!)
While Raptors are vicious, masculine, badass and kinda cute,
Unicorns are quite the opposite, being graceful, feminine, magical creatures. This is me...the best of both worlds all wrapped up in one!
What once started as a personal journal is now a log of all life's adventures. Take a look back to see what once was and look below to see what is now.
Sit back, crack a beer and enjoy the journey...

Living the Good Life
As I've settled into living on Kauai I have not been traveling all that much, but been enjoying little adventures along the way. Here is what I have been up to!
Lei making for Lana's birthday.
Lots of reading on the beach!
David came to visit and while we didn't get huge surf we caught some fun waves.
My new place! It's so cute! Perfect Lanai for working.
The view from my workstation.
My new place also has bees that I am learning about. Hopefully I can figure out how to harvest my own honey.
Ukulele lessons. So much fun with friends!
My new toy! She needs a little work and love, but we are going to have so much fun this summer!
Some of the destruction from the north shore flooding.
Helping friends with the new trampoline.
Waves! I love when someone gets to take pictures so I can see what I need to work on (everything!).
Finally took a trip to see Oahu! It was fun, but made me appreciate where I live.
Sunsets don't get much better. Sarah gets the photo credit on this one.
Continuing to learn to sail. Been sailing on Lelele and learning a ton from Tim!
Trimming the spinnaker has become my favorite roll.
Another weekend, another yurt! The Mill Hollow Yurt is also located in the Uinta Mountains, but it is not as secluded as the Castle Peak Yurt. When you pull up to the yurt, it is surrounded by other buildings not used in the winter. This is a big change from Castle Peak because you don't get the feeling you are in the middle up nowhere. The inside of the Mill Hollow yurt was much newer and nicer though. The yurt was bigger around and the beds were smaller so there was much more room for lounging and eating. They also had a couple big picnic tables in the center so there was a lot of eating area. We also had a lot more people on this yurt trip. We had Toni and Misti, Alex and Ceci, Mary and Vin and I brought Hayden. Bringing Hayden ended up not being the best idea. I'll get to this later.
We met in Kamas on Saturday morning at a local restaurant called Yolk and I was thoroughly unimpressed. They took forever to get our food out, when they brought it out, th…
A lifelong dream has been in the making as learning to sail (and hopefully owning a boat) is becoming a reality. Six friends decided to take a sailing course through the Virgin Islands on a 44' catamaran. We started in St Thomas and navigated all through the American and British Virgin Islands.
We started the trip by flying into St Thomas, then taking the ferry from Red Hook to Cruz Bay on St John's. We had a friend there who we wanted to see so it was a perfect way to start the trip! We ended up camping in a 'permanent tent' at Cinnamon Bay which was pretty cool.
As we walked out the front of our tent, the beach was 20 feet away! The snorkeling right out front was very mediocre, but as we learned later in the week, if we went out another 100 meters, it got much better. We saw turtles, small sharks, big grouper and lots of other sea life. After walking/hitchhiking back to Cruz Bay, we hopped on our ferry back to St Thomas to get on our boat.
