CMP-09-24-2006: CrapMonkey Podcast Episode 107

It’s the end of a beautiful weekend in Ballard.  The sun was out and the Seahawks were winning… what more could you ask for?  In this episode, I recap what seemed like a very fast week.  Next weekend, I’ll be heading down to the Podcast and Portable Media Expo, so be on the look out for audio from that event.  Fremont Oktoberfest came and went and I never made it down there, however, Leavenworth Oktoberfest is quickly approaching.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you enjoy Washington beers, you need to sign up for WABL at  Speaking of beer, I came across some pretty cool goblets made from Recycled beer bottles that are worth a peek.

In this nugget, I’ve got about 20 minutes of audio to share from our Labor Day camping trip to the Big Pines Recreational site in the Yakima River Canyon.  We spent five days there relaxing around a campfire, floating down the river, and even hitting the Kititas County Fair.  Photos are available on Flickr.
