10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington for Families

10 Top Areas for Sledding and Tubing in Washington Are you someone who loves winter & all of the activities in the snow? Spring & summer are definitely my favorite seasons in the Northwest, but I love to try out all the fun snow sports every winter with my family. We are so fortunate here in the western parts of the Northwest to be so close to the mountains, yet thankfully we have mainly mild temperatures in most locations. So, we don’t have to deal with driving in the snow unless we want t...

Best places to travel this February

Though for much of the world February is the cold, barren home stretch of winter, it’s also one of the cheapest times of the year to travel since everyone is still feeling the burn in their wallets left by the holiday season. Well, what are a few extra hundred bucks on the Amex if it means killer flight deals and almost no crowds? While Carnival and Mardi Gras fall in early March this year, plenty of Carribean destinations will be kicking off their celebrations early in February, giving you a...

What is baijiu: Everything to know

There’s a good chance that you’re familiar with vodka and whiskey. It’s possible you’re familiar with mezcal and various types of amaro. But even people who know their way around a bar are usually unfamiliar with baijiu, ironically, the most popular spirit in the world. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to learn about China’s national liquor. As Derek Sandhaus, the co-founder of baijiu brand Ming River and the author of Baijiu: The Essential Guide to Chinese Spirits, wrote in his book...

New Democrat House Transportation Chairman: Puppet of Big US Airlines

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. With Republicans in control of the US House of Representatives they had Bill Shuster (R-Airlines for America) to do their bidding. He was dating a top lobbyist from the airline industry. His Chief of Staff was married to another top airline industry lobbyist. And he hired an airline industry lobbyist to run the Transportation Committee. Now with Democrats regaining control of the House Pete DeFazio of Oregon isn't missing a beat. Continue reading New D...

#Qatar Airlines runs into turbulence in the US House | Financial Times

Qatar Airlines runs into turbulence in the US House | Financial Times:The Democrat who will head the House of Representatives committee that oversees aviation has lashed out at Qatar Airways for allegedly subsidising Air Italy and giving it an unfair advantage as the Italian carrier increases its routes to the US. Peter DeFazio of Oregon, who will chair the transportation committee when Democrats take control of the House in January, said he was concerned that Qatar Airways, which has a 49 per c...

Oregon may make shrooms legal

The spread of the legalization of marijuana in the United States has opened the door for other recreational drugs to follow suit and magic mushrooms seem to be next in line. Possession of magic mushrooms, which contain the mind-altering chemical psilocybin, is currently a felony, although Oregon hopes to be the first state to legalize the psychedelic drug. Oregon’s Secretary of State just approved the language of a possible ballot initiative for 2020, which would make magic mushrooms legal. ...

Where to wine taste in all 50 states

It used to be that when people thought about wine tasting, they thought about swirling expensive glasses while snacking on brie in Napa Valley. It was a boujee, sophisticated weekend activity reserved for wealthy couples and the occasional bachelorette party. Now, literally every state in America has a wine region, even Alaska. So while the image of high-class leisure may be a bit diluted, the experience is far more accessible. Granted, some states do it better than others. You’ll still find ...

US recreational marijuana laws

Recreational cannabis is rapidly changing in the US. As of 2018, 10 states and Washington, DC allow the recreational consumption of marijuana. What was once the pipe dream of casual consumers and devotees alike is becoming a reality faster than you can make a bad stoner joke, but every state is taking a different approach. Those differences can make knowing how, when, and where to light up difficult even when you make it to a safe state. Whether you’re taking a cannabis tourism tour or coming...

Ethiopia’s Nascent Luxury Tourism Market Starts to Take Hold Skift Luxury is a word that one would rarely use to describe the current state of accommodations in Ethiopia. Its famous landmarks include the Simien Mountains and Gelada monkeys, the submerged churches of Lalibela, the religiously significant cities of Gondor and Aksum, and the otherworldly Danakil Depression. Ethiopia is also one of the poorest nations in the world and for many Western tourists its image is tied to the devastating 1...

Americans should travel domestically

It’s easy to make friends in the Midwest. Not that the concept of friendly people in the middle states is groundbreaking or anything, but it really is true. This is how I ended up hotboxing an F-150 in a Ft. Wayne parking lot outside a dive bar called the Brass Rail. Phil, my hot-boxing host, was the bartender at a music venue I’d been to earlier in the night. “You came all the way from Miami to FORT WAYNE?” the burly, bearded bartender said when I ordered a beer and told him I was visiting. ...

Trevor’s Travels: Visiting Santa Barbara is a smart decision

When I first arrived in Southern California, it was a while before I left the Los Angeles area as I concentrated on building my business enough for it to survive unattended for a spell. The first city I visited was Santa Barbara, and I have to say at the time I was a little disappointed. Granted it was over 30 years ago, but somehow the city didn’t do much for me and it was quite some time before I returned. My early recollections were that it was very busy and the traffic was difficult due to t...

Squishing of the Pumpkins

Celebrating fall in the US usually consists of picking the ripest pumpkin, carving out a design, and putting it on display. But, the Oregon Zoo in Portland rings in the new season a little differently — they watch Asian elephants smash pumpkins under their giant feet. The annual event is called the “Squishing of the Squash,” and announces the start of the zoo’s “Howloween” festivities. Over 5,000 people attended the event this year, which was held on October 19th. A video of the “Squishing of...

more on the privilege of moving: future tax refunds and the hero of this story

Thanks to several Facebook friends and at least one wmtc commenter, we've learned that the hefty cost of moving across Canada will be (eventually) (somewhat) reduced: the move is tax-deductible. It sounds like we'll receive a substantial refund from moving costs. I already have a box dedicated to receipts. But the real reason we can afford this move -- and the hero of this story -- is my brother, M.  Back in April when he suggested driving the truck for us, we didn't think we'd need it. The...

my plans and hopes for our big life change

We are moving west for several reasons. One is a lifestyle change. I've adjusted to living in the sprawling suburbs, and while we were living in a (rental) house, it was nice. But for the last 2-1/2 years we've been living in an apartment. A nice apartment, and a large one, but what's the point of the suburbs if you don't have a backyard?Soon we will have a big yard, a deck -- and the ocean very nearby! I want to spend more time outside. We're not super outdoorsy, but I love to walk and hike, a...

The Pacific Northwest has majestic mountain peaks, temperate rainforests, rushing waterfalls, and breathtaking views everywhere you look. To see it all, we mapped a loose plan, loaded up the car, and hit the pavement on an epic road trip.

Along the way we hiked, swam, picnicked with stunning views, and took a lot of...

Pumpkin beers made with real pumpkin

Try to name a beer category that’s more disparaged than pumpkin beer. We’ll wait. The style is relentlessly mocked, and often for good reason. At its worst, pumpkin beer is cloyingly sweet and full of clove, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon — the flavors we’ve come to accept as “pumpkin,” yet rarely contain any actual pumpkin. In this golden age of brewing, however, true pumpkin beers exist if you know where to look. So hold your thoughts on pumpkin-flavored everything for a minute and grab a b...

What time you can drink at brunch

Love it or hate it , brunch has become a lifestyle. Personally, we’re all for it because it’s the only time when drinking booze before you’ve even had breakfast is totally socially acceptable. If you’re the brunch-loving type who likes to travel the country, however, you may have realized that not all states are made equal when it comes to Sunday’s most popular meal. That’s because the time that alcohol can be served at Sunday brunch varies greatly depending on where you are. So to avoid a nas...
