Meat: A Conversation Between an Animal Activist and a Hunter

What does an animal activist have in common with a hunter? Turns out, more than you think.

Sad News

The elderly couple from California we met during the last days of our road trip left an indelible impression on me. We met them on the ferry ride from Bainbridge Island to Seattle after they had visited Bainbridge Bakers, a favorite place they never missed a chance to visit.

Our Nutty Adventure – Part I

Greetings from Bremerton, Washington, about an hour west by ferry across the Puget Sound from Seattle.  I am starting day 4 of the 25-day Northwest road trip.

For this road trip we didn’t plan any specific itinerary or book any hotels.  This may seem an odd way of vacationing especially given that I am the kind of person who have always craved structure and predictability.… Continue reading →
