How to Help

Thank you so much to those who’ve asked how you can help and offered to do just about anything. As we continue to learn more about what the immediate and long-term future holds, we know we’ll need to lean on our families, friends, and communities for support. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts, and as fiercely independent people, we’ll do our best to ask for and graciously accept help.

Thanks to my brother Matt and sister-in-law Becca who set up a GoFundMe to help out with moving and living expenses while we relocate to Colorado for the next year. While we feel very fortunate that Jesse has made some smart decisions and still has a source of income during this time, the costs of dealing with an injury like this do add up quickly and none of this was part of our plan. We are incredibly humbled by the generosity of our friends and families, especially at a time when so many are facing challenges and hardships. THANK YOU!

Orcas folks! We have some ongoing projects around Jesse’s Swan Road property (specifically, building a deck and roof for the travel trailer, filling in the pond-that-wasn’t in front of the cabin, and laying down a flagstone patio at the cabin. If you are willing and able to help, please reach out to me.

Lastly… a shameless plug! If you’d like to help lift Jesse’s spirits, please help make his book a smashing success! On the Hoof: Pacific to Atlantic will be released in March 2021 (a slight delay, due to both our current situation and the current state of everything). You can add your name to the list to be notified by the publisher when it’s available or pre-order on Amazon. Better yet, consider asking your independent local book store to stock it!
