Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


off the grid.

OK, so that headline is a little dramatic. But Paige and I returned yesterday from a solid week above 5800 feet in the Sierras. After three years of being hooked into the Corporate grid, it was a pleasant surprise to see my crappy cell phone read, "No Service". Of course, it reads "No Service" nearly every day at my house in Silicon Valley. But, I digress.

Essentially, it was a week of hiking through national parks, exploring alpine meadows, floating in the middle of a mountain lake, tossing dry flies at skittish rainbow trout, and general decompressing. Not to mention a failed attempt at beard-growing. Despite the implication of the hat (shown above), I'm not even remotely related to Johnny Damon.

It is, however, good to be back in the land of TV and wireless networks. We'll be off the grid again in about ten days for another alpine excursion. A week online followed by a week offline. Where do I sign?
