It’s our 3rd December in Oregon. Sometimes it feels like we’ve been here longer and other times it seems like we just moved here a few weeks ago. That being said, I feel we’re definitely growing some roots now. I really like where we live and the social circle, while small is slowly growing.
We’ve developed routines, favorite places to eat and shop, and a sure sign of our growing roots is that Mia is known on a first name basis at our nearest Starbucks.
As we approach the end of 2015, I look towards 2016 and some vague plans for adventure.
Loose goals right now include:
- OBRA 2016 Mtn Bike Series
- A trip to Steens Mtn and Alvord Desert
- At least 2 backpacking trips
- A bikepacking trip
That’s what I’ve come up with for now.
The days are getting shorter and we’re just shy of 2 weeks until the shortest day of the year. I look forwards to the upside after the 22nd. Sometimes it feels like I only see the sun from my office window.
The pets tend to spend a lot of time horizontal this time of year too.
