Cabin crash, Take One

Our last minute call to spend the night at the cabin was an awesome one! It’s a great little cabin on the water in Lake of the Woods, OR. We spun up about a million fabulous ideas over a peaceful bonfire off the deck, and wrapped up a late evening with a first rate star gazing session from the lounge chairs on the dock. What an insane view! Something about 5000’ of elevation and no light pollution really brings all the stars out to play. For the third time in one trip, Brian experienced more stars than he’s seen in his life – score one for the West! We toyed with the idea of trying to capture the star blanket on camera, but neither of us had the juice so we called it a (late) night.

To protect the innocent I won’t reveal our wakeup time, however suffice it to say we got a fabulous nights’ sleep. We both took an hour or so to catch up on voicemail and phone calls (from the front porch and dock, of course!) and I managed to snap this shot of Brian hard at work.





The funny thing about this shot is that Brian didn’t realize he’d been setup. I sifted through the cabinet to find a coffee mug that came close to matching his personality. I don’t know how close I came, but it was the best I could do with the tools I had.

You guys are having WAY too much fun! That place in Oregon looks amazing. Can you share with us where exactly that is?

Your friends at CBF in Annapolis send their regards! Have fun and keep up the great work.

Hey gang! Thanks for dropping us a note! I agree - we're certainly having too much fun...

The lake is in south/central Oregon, situated between Medford, Klamath Falls, and Ashland. We're planning on publishing GPS coordinates and Google Earth links before we're done.

Cheers to Annapolis!

OK - we'll likely not get to the GPS coordinates this time around. Life's getting in the way! We've got SOOOO many ideas for the next round it's crazy! With any luck, the GPS'ing will make it on the next trip...
