In February 2017 I moved from Alaska down to northern California. I loaded everything onto the barge, flew to Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, then flew back to Seattle, caught the barge, unloaded it, and drove down to Humboldt County, where I grew up. The house I bought had a small shed in the backyard. It was too small and advanced in decrepitude to use, so I took it apart board by board, saved the old growth redwood, and built a new studio for recording, writing, and filming.
