Sisters make the best trail buddies! 👩‍❤️‍👩 . . . @paperfaced has been such a trooper this summer. She doesn’t lose hope when I say “we’re almost there” 100 times and doesn’t actually follow through when she says “I’ll kill you if this is a false summit.” We’re hitting the trails again on Monday, but this time on mountain bikes! You can be sure we’ll come back full of funny stories! ⛰ 🚵🏼‍♀️🚵🏼‍♂️

finally getting around to editing my mount rainier pics — more to come soon!

#nofilterneeded for the beautiful #portoftacoma 💚 swipe right to see me being goofy and excited about my kitty shoes! Still can’t believe I scored them for like 8$ 😸 #thriftstorefinds #thrifty #beautifulpnw

Take me back to untamed Vancouver Island evenings.

Ready to be at the helm of another winter adventure. Dreaming of the crisp air, warm layers, and the crunch of snow beneath my feet. Who wants to be my copilot?! 🙋🏽‍♀️❄️ 🏔

It was swim day for SuperScully today! He scored an incredible session with a super nice and very knowledgeable Newf person from our local club because big sister Sequence can’t swim for awhile because she decided to finally come into season yesterday.......just one day after our water-trial supply kit (bumpers, ropes, boat cushion, and oar) arrived. Of course😜! Timing is everything, but Sequence’s loss is Scully’s gain, and he did so well. And I’m learning SO. MUCH. My head might be exploding. We are just so incredibly fortunate to have some very fine people pouring into us right now. They generously give of their time and expertise to teach us and guide us in all things Newf and dog related. If I can remember and apply a fraction of it, our dogs will be much better for it. #dogtrainingisreallyhumantraining #newfpuppywatertraining #lotsofencouragement #happyscully #bravescully #beautifulpnw #community #beconnected #weneedeachother #encouragement #positivereinforcement #sharethelove

Fire prep for winter camping on the wettest section of coast in the lower 48.  We intentionally planned this trip to get out in the winter storms that hit the coast every year and the weather did not disappoint. Besides being soaked in weeks of heavy rainfall, all of the driftwood had been recently submerged in the sea due to extreme wave action caused by combined effect  of high tides and strong winds. This mean the only way to start and maintain a fire was splitting down large chunks of driftwood which was still soaked almost to the core.  The carbon steel ESEE 6 might not seem like the ideal tool for busting open big pieces of salty sandy wood, but it has never let me down.  As you can tell from the orca pattern, this knife has seen a lot of hard use.  Surface rust is a fact of life out there, but it cleans up good enough in the field, and good as new once I get it home. #toughtools #dirtyknives #beateresee #esee6 #eseeknives #carbonsteel #rustyknives #sharpknives #knifeskills #bushcraftknife #survivalknife #knivesinaction #orcaknives #fireprep #kindling #shavings #driftwoodfire #wintercamping #campingintherain #beautifulpnw #pnwcoast #batoning #splitting #bushcraftskills #survivalskills #fireskills #firemaking #bushcraftusa #bcusa Pardon the repost...one of the photos in the original post had a formatting issue.
