It’s been about 12 years since I recorded a train. When I lived in Seattle I was able to get some great recordings of all kinds of trains in many environments. When I moved to Idaho in 1997 I soon realized that trains were everywhere. North Idaho is the main Northern route from East to West. 60+ trains a day pass through here so there is always a chance to get recordings year round. I recorded many trains back in ...More →

There was an old aluminum boat inside, and I banged the front (I don’t know boat-speak very well) of the boat with a mic inside and under, as well as recording scratching finger nails along the top. Another spontaneous session “happened” after I was recording my SUV on a remote mountain top development road. ...More →
Last week we got a huge amount of snow. The street I live on is a really well maintained road for North Idaho and the plow trucks had been zooming uo and down the road to keep it clear.

It had been really cold during the snow fall and then it warmed up a bit to make the icy snow pack even ...More →
