I'm not from Idaho. I was born in Minnesota. I moved to Wisconsin then back. I moved to Georgia then to upstate New York. Then to California. I moved to San Francisco then returned to Minnesota after that. I met Erin in Minneapolis where we lived until we moved to Northern California and then to Boise. Last night, we rode our bicycles to the park and standing in the foothills with my wife and son, drinking cans of beer with Chris, looking at the glowing tents and milling people and breathing in the mountain air, we listened to Built to Spill play music under the stars. The gods smiled down. We were happy and I felt like I was home.
