hot sand on toes, cold sand in sleeping bags

Rodney coming out of the surf!
Having a house with no internet except through your phone makes this blog difficult to keep up with!
Chinook season has been busy as always, working long nights and long days. I can't believe it is almost over already! It seems like we just started! Right now, Andrew and I are trying to pack up our house, save money for the drive across America, have fun, work, and stay sane all at the same time. We shall see how that works out haha. 
I am also knee deep in my capstone project, which is proving difficult to make any head way on with unstable work schedule and internet access. But as mom said today: "If it was easy, everyone would do it." She was full of one liners today ;)
Our good friend Rodney came out to visit for a bit! That made Andrew's month! They floated the river, Rodney surfed the ocean in his creek kayak(!), they played music, and we all drank some growlers of delicious beer from the Pelican Pub. Overall a good weekend.  
Good ol' Fizabeth came and visited us as well on her way down the coast! She got a job in California playing with salmon and our house was about half way on her move from Washington. We put her to work with us one night marking Chinook to get her ready for her new job. She did awesome and was good luck, she brought in 8 keepers (wild adult Chinook salmon)!!
 Hopefully as we slowly start to get back on the day shift, I can blog more often. 

 I will leave you with a song my lovely friend Ashley sent me, which is a new favorite of mine:

 And a bit of picture purging, to give you all a peek into what our life consists of!
