All in Caravansary

Caravansary: The Pope House Bourbon Lounge. Portland, Oregon USA

Ahhh...Portland...I love this city. It's not uncommon for me to stumble upon a place or a person in Portland that fits the vibe of the project...or my life for that matter. A group of us were in Portland hanging out with my good friend Miller James, who was on tour with a few cats that became new friends for sure, Brian Jarvis, and Brendan James. After the Portland show, we took a day off and chilled out in the Pearl District. A nice dinner at an amazing restaurant in the "Pearl" followed by a search for a "wee bit o whiskey" to wrap up the night led us to this amazing place.

Caravansary: White Rose Estate Winery. Dundee Hills, Oregon USA

The Willamette Valley is a grand and varied appellation that includes six "sub-appellations" including, in no particular order: Dundee Hills, Chehalem Mountains, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton, and Eola-Amity Hills. All are equally spectacular and shielded from Pacific Ocean storms by the huge valley that follows the Willamette River from North to South. The wine country covers hundreds of square miles, yet with its massive tourist draw, it still exudes a humble and relaxed energy. We were going to try and touch on each of these sub-appellations. Ready, GO!

Caravansary: Burning Man, 2014. The (almost) Full Story. Part 1

I have always been frustrated when I asked friends and acquaintances that had been to Burning Man to tell me what it was like. Typically, there is an uncomfortable pause followed by a blank stare and a few mumbled words forming partial sentences. The story was almost always the same, “I have no idea how to explain Burning Man. You’ll just have to go and experience it for yourself. It’s just amazing, and I can tell you this, it changed my life.”
