chill vibes

Recently I had the chance to travel to Nosara, Costa Rica. The chillest vibes, you guys, the chillest. Nosara is around three hours from airport in Liberia, through jungled coastal mountain ranges, along winding dirt roads. It’s the kind of place where you want to turn off your phone and stay awhile. Also, there’s surf. Warm water, bikini-ready, surf. A++ would go again.

It’s not blue. But it poses pretty nice for photos. Look! There’s more.

adventures in the forest

So bike packing, in the rain, in Oregon, is a pretty hard thing to do. But beautiful! And highly recommended, though maybe without the rain part. I think I’d skip the rain part.

I spend three days on the North Umpqua River Trail with Specialized. We rode the Hellga fat bike, went fly fishing, and drank a little whiskey. Hey! It was raining! You can’t go adventuring in the rain without whiskey.

During all these shenanigans, I carried a camera bag. It began to feel like part of my body, actually. Should you need to carry cameras long enough for them to feel like part of your body, Fstop bags are the way to go. They crush, basically.

Also, Goretex socks. If you’re going to go adventuring in the rain, you need Goretex socks. And whiskey.

I made a photo essay for Bicycling Magazine about the trip. Making pictures in the rain in the Oregon forest was not easy! It was really dark! I’ve never shot ISO 25,000 at noon before! Light. I like light.

Anyway, it all worked alright. Read more over at Bicycling!

espresso

I would not mind waking up to this set-up in my kitchen. Salvatore makes custom espresso machines in a workshop just outside Solvang. His metalwork is amazing. I wrote all about Salvatore and how to make the best possible morning espresso for the October issue of Bicycling Magazine.

If you’re into espresso, bikes, cool things made out of metal, Italy — whatever you’re into, go find yourself a copy of Bicycling. I’m happy to have done the photography for the story, too. Read words, look at pictures, drink espresso. Life is good.

Also, you can read this story online if you have some kind of weird aversion to paper. So go do it already.
