What Cures Dehydration Better Than Beer?

After several days of being sick, I finally felt better yesterday so we decided to check out the Columbia River Gorge and do a little hike around the falls.

We stopped at Wahkeena Falls:

And then moved on to the second highest and most visited waterfall in Oregon:




















We walked up to the bridge and decided to keep going to the top as the map said it was only another 0.5 miles to the top of the falls. The map lied (or *cough* perhaps we misread it). It was a mile and a quarter of switchbacks to the top which would have been fine except for the fact that I was wearing sandles and we did not bring water. Despite that, we made it to the top only slightly dehydrated and with only one blister on my right foot. Success!

Having experienced Oregon nature, we then decided to experience some Oregon beer:














And then Oregon wine:




















And finally Oregon Frufru drinks:

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!

DIY Wort Chiller

We here at Curious Souls H.Q. are always looking for ways to save a buck or two. So, when shopping around online for a wort chiller for home brewing, we found the following prices: $65 @ Midwest (plus shipping) $70 @ Northern (plus shipping) $39 @ Amazon (plus shipping) So, off to the hardware store... 3/8" (internal diameter) Vinyl Tubing (10 feet) = $4.15 Sink to hose adapter (varies based on your type of sink) = $4.79 3/8" X 20' Copper Tubing = $24.13 Vinyl Hose Coupler = $2.49 Hose clamps (x2)  = $1.70 Band-aids (x2 or x3 or x4) = $1.00 For a total of $38.26 (pre-tax, no shipping), we decided to roll our own. Here's how it went down... ( vid link ) And, of course, there is the joy of having made something all by yourself! Priceless & fun!
