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...

Catching up on Life
Life has been goooood. There were some rough moments, but things have finally come together again and it couldn't be better! I've been making new friends and staying way too busy! Here are some of my adventures...
Adria took some shots of me at the bay and it looks like I was part of a glamour shots photo shoot!
I went to California to meet my new work team. Everyone is so nice and wonderful!
After hiking so much, I have finally found the Mauka Naupaka! If you don't know the story, let me know and I'll tell you why this is so cool!
I've been learning to much about bee keeping! Definitely a hobby I see myself doing once I decide to settle down in some place for good.
Fun times at a couple weddings!
Daria's first day of high school
I finally decided it was a good idea to sell my motorcycle, but I didn't want to forget about her! We had a lot of good times cruising around the island!
First time breaking a surfboard. Most people would be sad, but I was stoked! It's kinda like a right of passage. I'll be sad when I break the next one :-)
I've been putting a lot of work in the Land Cruiser. She might as well be my girlfriend with the amount of time we spend together. She got a new roof rack!
I rebuilt the power steering pump...this was fun!
This all leads to lots of good times camping on the beach! I have made a pretty sweet setup in the back that I will make a video of one of these days.
Last camping trip ended with Dave getting stuck and needing me to pull him out! I'm pretty stoked with how well the Land Cruiser works in these situations!
Beach days and surfing with friends
Lou's 60th birthday!
And of course lots of sailing. I love when someone gets a picture from a distance.
I've also been diving a lot, but I don't have pictures of this. I'll have to figure that one out. I'm headed to Micronesia on a Dive/Surf/Yoga trip so excited to report back on that! Until next time.
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.
It's been a while since I've done a catch up on life in general. Things in Hawaii are great! A few days ago was the one year anniversary of moving here. The first year didn't turn out at all like I would have imagined, but it ended up being alright and I learned a lot about life in general. I'm stoked to be here and I don't see myself going anywhere anytime soon.
For Thanksgiving we had a 'friendsgiving' with friends and I'm headed to AZ to see family for Christmas. It's nice to be able to spend holidays with both friends and family.
Surfing has consumed my life lately and this picture about sums up how I feel about it!
Concerts with friends.
Camping at Polihale.
Karaoke ... and I even sang!
