I have owned and operated Double Crown Records, a Bellingham, WA based surf and instrumental rock n' roll label, since the mid-90's, but have always been a hiking enthusiast. Over the last few years I have worked towards doing just about every hike within 20-30 miles of Mt. Baker, and have also made it a goal to do every trail on Chuckanut and Blanchard mountains near Bellingham, WA. In October 2018 I did a solo thru-hike of the Chinook Trail in Washington and Oregon along the Columbia River.
