The day after the GABF, I flew home to Oregon for my granddad's memorial service. He passed away earlier this month after a drawn out battle with a brain tumor. He lived a long and happy life and was one of the most honorable, respected, and loved people I've ever met. I learned a great many things from him and, along with many other people, will miss him greatly.
I returned to Boulder this afternoon, only to leave tomorrow for some field work near Naturita, CO. Naturita is in the middle of nowhere, close to the Utah border. I'll likely be there until Thanksgiving.
