For those of us in the Northwest, the summer is hereeee. Actually it’s like at least a third over please do not bring it up. So far my summer is super different than last year, when I took a health & wanderlust-necessitated sabbatical from my very plugged-in job as a tech editor to acquire some outdoor skills and generally roam around. And roam I did! It didn’t seem like that much roaming at the time, but looking back I went on a lot of adventures.
