In April 2012 I made the plan, in June I left my job at BuzzFeed, in July I shipped a mattress and some 20 odd boxes in a pod bound for San Francisco, CA. Having said many teary goodbyes I set out on my motorcycle for California with every intention of moving to the bay area and joining my growing group of friends there. Then, somewhere between Ohio and Wyoming, I began having doubts about where I was headed, whether another city hustle was that next step I was looking for. And, after much soul searching and a solo motorcycle trip from Portland, OR down to LA it became clear that the forests of my homestate of Oregon is what I needed.
