A town of about 22,000 residents, Ashland is home to the world renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Southern Oregon University, Lithia Park (a 93-acre park in the heart of town), the Ashland Independent Film Festival, the awesome Rogue River, over 60 wineries and the list goes on.
Following my post from yesterday in which I expressed my desire to have this blog be a venue for others to share their story, today I am introducing my friend Kent, who lives in southern Arizona.

In my recent post River Guides and Chefs, I offered one of my reasons for launching this blog, food! And who doesn’t love food?
