The AP Wilderness is absolutely gorgeous, gigantic, and normally empty of people….

Hiking and Family Weddings

At the end of July, my brother Jerome married his lovely fiance, Stephanie. Since both of them are fun and slightly non-traditional, they ditched the church and reception and had a big camp-out party. A friend hosted over 20 RVs and tents in her front yard in NW Washington! The Amazing Sleeping Man is NOT…
