Right as Rain


The Adventurer, Vernon Wade

Vernon was born in the Pacific Northwest and still lives in the shadow of Mt. Hood, near the small town where he grew up. Vernon has spent decades wandering the hills, hunting mushrooms, camping and riding motorcycles into the remotest nooks and crannies to be found in the region.

With my blades prepped for the rainy season, I cleaned up my mess, put the oil in a jug and wiped out the pan. Mark that off my list.
