I’m flying back to Ontario tomorrow to visit friends and family, and then headed on to Barbados late next week. The Barbados visit will be bittersweet: It’s my last trip before my dad wraps up his work there and moves home to Canada, and while I’m sure I’ll get back to the island again even without a parental stronghold to stay in, it won’t be quite the same.

I’ll hope to get in a surf lesson or two while I’m there. And speaking of surfing (hey, segue!) here’s an interview I did for Matador Sports with big-name surf filmmaker Taylor Steele.

I’ve got a few odds and ends to catch up on.

First of all, I’ve had a handful of stories published over on the Matador Network in the past couple weeks: an introduction to a serious local ultra race — The Yukon Arctic Ultra: The World’s Toughest Race? — and two stories about my Alaskan beer adventures. Check out The Beer Frontier: Binge Drinking in Alaska and the accompanying Guide to Beer Drinking in Alaska.

Greetings from Barbados!

I landed on Sunday and will be kicking around the Eastern Caribbean (Barbados, Saint Lucia, and the Grenadines, specifically) for three weeks.

I’ve also had a handful of stories published recently:

Over at Matador, Choose Your Own Blues Adventure and the companion piece, Highway Blues: Essential Tunes for a Delta Roadtrip, both went live this morning.

Meanwhile, my interview with Kelly Westhoff and Jen Paulus, the co-founders of CheSpotting.com, was published at World Hum on Friday.

I’ll be updating my Stories page shortly.
