Had the chance to hang with some great old friends, and a couple of new ones, last week in coastal Oregon.
That's Jetty Creek on the right where K8 Taylor's community gets its drinking water. That is a perfectly legal buffer for a fish bearing stream....the logged areas including this wetland shown are sprayed with herbicides.
Hopefully recent action by the state and feds will prevent this type of timber management practices in the future.
A proposed Oregon Senate bill would tighten rules for aerial pesticide spraying on forest land and overhaul how the state responds to complaints of drift and exposure.

Federal officials also say Oregon’s logging rules still don’t do enough to protect fish habitat and drinking water.

The latest from K8 and Crump.
April belongs to us. It’s our month; escaping the Northwest rains, diving head on into the sunshine of Baja, and burning our pale white skin. Together we fish, devour tacos, and wash it all down with ice cold micheladas. For the unitiated, micheladas are the drink of choice here in Baja. A fresh key lime squeezed into a frosty glass filled with ice, clamato, spices, and topped with Pacifico beer….refreshing AND good for you.
