Great Oregon Coast Hike: Cape Falcon and Neahkhanie Mountain

Here is a great hike on the Oregon Coast that should be good all year round — assuming you don’t mind a little mud. And if you can add a second car, the 9-mile hike to Cape Falcon and then over Neahkhanie Mountain includes many things that make hiking on the Oregon Coast terrific. All […]

September Breakfast Bulletin: Amidst Tragedy, Hope

The September issue of my monthly(ish) newsletter, the Breakfast Bulletin, is out. Normally, this would involve a summary of activity from my blog here, probably a report from my English soccer project, and perhaps a plug to buy one of my books.
