A year in the life of a game trail in the BWCA.

I’ve been pondering future movements and listening to @patrickrhone’s recent interview on Systematic with Brett Terpstra inspired me to reach out to Patrick to talk shop — remodeling, financing remodels, how that’s gone, etc. He was gracious enough to spend a few hours with me for some great conversation and a tour of his Hague House. This home built in the 1890s hides some amazing little details that you just don’t find anymore. I just wish I’d have grabbed a shot of the glasswork in the master closet.

As Patrick said, I'd probably pay $30 per hinge for these kinds of details over plain stainless.While very inornate as far these kinds of details go, this doorway has some wonderful handmade details that you'd never find elsewhere.The tile! The carving in the lintel! The metalwork on the firebox! So much to love here.

Jamie shared this, and I backed it immediately. I’m stoked to play with this with my children!

Paul Boswell, creator of the Turing Tumble, just launched Spintronics on Kickstarter. I’m in! Turing Tumble was brilliant, and this looks equally great! I love how he turns digital concepts and logic into something physical to interact with.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. We enjoyed a creek-side picnic and a family walk.

Feeling a new burn with this, my Trashy Firepit. I bought it, happily, as I’m handy and into DIY, but not so much with metalwork. But if you like metalwork, Craig has posted the plans.

Hello, @saturdaydumplingclub! Veggie for lunch.

Get lost in the darkness.

Honestly, I’m here for April Fools jokes this year.

Shrimp Diablo a lá Dock Cafe. Eat’cher heart out!

I’€™m your huckleberry.


Seventeen years and a day that we’ve been together! I’ve been thinking a lot about that time, and especially the last year and all it’s brought and taught us. \n.\nOh my goodness @annbkool and her crew at @sookimimi are amazing. I’m so thankful you were able to open and provide a place for small, special nights like tonight. Listening earlier today to @foodunderfirepod episodes with you and @jdfratzke have me thinking a lot about everyone in the service industry and the struggle you’ve been through this past year.

Please pardon the mediocre food photography — I was more focused on shoving these delicious courses in my mouth than perfecting the photos. I also ate one course before I could take a pic of it. The whole experience was fantastic, and the molé blanco was sumptuous.

Hair matches jacket!

I unabashedly asked for a bottle of the new stuff at @handsome_hog last night. Today, Breakfast of Champions with some @crybabycraigs Hail Fire benefiting Minnesota farmers harmed in the 2020 hail storm. Get your bottle at @lundsandbyerlys in early March.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Antonov An124 from a week ago @mspairport

Hard to get a sense of how big this plane is without anything around it. Maybe I’ll be able to catch the prep and departure.

I liked the light off this @americanair A319 shot 2020-11-29 at @mspairport. I missed the Antonov A124 taking off that morning and only caught the Carolina Panthers motorcade on the highway, and missed their chartered 747.

Beginning of the end, this.

Halloween costumes. A created character inspired by Ahsoka Tano and The Cheeto in Chief acting presidential.

Listening to @davechangshow while hungry is not recommended. But it results in nice things like an apple cream crêpe cake for breakfast! They came out too thick, but it’ll be okay. Adding sugar to the apple cream was a nice way to get some sweet crêpes without adding sugar to the batter.

A pie chart depicting the cake I have not baked yet.
