These are some pictures from Oregon in January, 2007.

Paul and Allison Dehaan's wedding

Paul and Allison feeding each other cake.


Full size
Bill made a pretty serious effort to be the creepiest guy at the wedding, dancing with all of the
little kids, both of the grandmas, and anyone else with feet. Allison's grandma said of Bill,
"He's better than my chiropractor!". I don't know what this means, but it's weird.



Full size
I hosted a house party to say goodbye to Natalia before she went home. It wound up being a martini party
even though I had almost zero supplies.

Some of the Rock Squad (L to R) - Jordan Disko's face, Deb Disko, Chris Gorman, Bill Righter, Ross Segelken,

Thanks to everyone for making our pot-drink-luck work out so well!


Full size
A little bit of Twister action.


Full size
For some reason, my wobble board caused quite a stir with most of the crew taking a round on it.
Here, Jeff shows us that he has no balance.


Full size
Arrr, Pirate Chris! Hmm, this makes me think of Pirate Chris .


Full size
Bill and June hanging out.


Full size
Keri Gorman and Deb Disko.


Full size
Jason went to bed early, meaning that we had to go jump on him and wake him up.


Skiing at Timberline Lodge


Full size
Andrew North and I had an absolutely perfect day on the slopes at Timberline. The Mile
wasn't running so we went up via Snow Cat for some turns.


Full size
Yours truly looking up to the summit of Mt Hood.


Full size
The view from the Snow Cat on the way up the Palmer.


Full size
This was a gentleman whom we met in the Cat and wound up joining me for an epic run, from the
top of the Palmer (elevation - 8540 ft) down to the town of Government Camp (3500). That's
just about a vertical mile folks.


Full size
Here's the same gentleman (sorry I forgot your name Mr Tacoma) with Mt Jefferson in view behind him.


Full size
A really cool snow feature. Don't get too close! This is a big sink hole.


Cross Country Skiing with Bill Righter


Full size
Bill wanted to learn how to skate ski, so we took a round at Trillium Lake trails near
Government Camp. How's this for a hero pose?


Full size
Mt Hood and I.


Full size
Bill and I on the lake.


Full size
Bill making tracks across the lake.


Full size
If we had skiing trading cards, this should be Bill's.


Full size
The hill down to the main Trillium loop is a little bit steep. Bill had a tough time coming
back up the hill.

Full size
Of all the things to wake up to in Portland in January, how about 5 inches of snow? This effectively
shut down the city for two straight days. It also wound up causing some interesting driving conditions
as this gentleman found out: VIDEO OF IDIOT


Full size
I joined the Diskos for some fun in the snow. Here, Jordan pushes Scarlett on a sled.


Full size
Scarlett Disko playing in the snow.


Full size
Deb grew up in the Midwest so snow is second nature. Nice toque!


Full size
Another great day in the snow for me.


Full size
We walked around the neighbourhood of Bel Air and found a few hills to play on. I took my
cross-country skis and played in the snow.


Full size
Scarlett having fun on her crazy carpet.


Full size
Deb speeding down the hill with her Pam-sprayed-slidy-disc.


Full size
Deb enjoying the crazy carpet too.


Full size
Natalia, here are the excellent ribs you missed. Only 5 months left...


Full size
Jeff and I decided to get a little climbing done in late January. The air temperature was
nice, but the 50 mph winds made leading a little sketchy. Here is Jeff on his way up Cruiser .


Full size
This is Jeff's opinion of the weather after we bailed off the 2nd pitch. I must say that I nearly
cried midway up a 5.7 when the wind was so bad, it almost blew me off the rock. That was about the
time that I realized the piece I placed 20 feet back had wiggled free, leaving me ~ 35 feet exposed on
slab. Yuck.
