For those who may be new here, my name is Brian Daniel Eisenberg. I am currently riding out the pandemic in the Greater Seattle Area. I own 40 acres of forested land at 3600′ elevation in the
Tunk Valley, a place I call Iron Mountain Ranch, near Riverside, about 45 miles from the Canadian Border in North Central Washington State.
Before the Pandemic, I was living off-grid and spent most of my time working on my homestead and forest management program. This started in late 2014 after a wildfire burned the entire valley. I was living up there full time off-grid until the pandemic hit, when I decided to come back down to the Puget Sound to help support my folks and sister and her family.
This is my story…. it is long and convoluted and filled with hope, despair, joy, pain, and everything else that comes with the human condition. I will continue to expand on this as time permits.

01/25/2021. Fire destroyed the home where the last two pics below were taken. Sad to walk by, but nice to know that despite such tragedy and loss, nature finds a way to persevere . It was clear that the owner took great care to tend to this and a few other planter boxes. 🌱🌿
01/17/2021. I miss the clanging of dishes and the smells of breakfast at a busy diner.

09/15/2020 5:20pm. Something is different about the taste and smell of the smoke today. Suspect overnight rain has caused some weird airborne chemistry and chemical reactions to take place. Tastes awful.
09/12/2020 Fed Frank and friends some apple slices. Feel bad for the animals. Today was hard.
Shit is really fucked up in America right now. Makes me feel sick to my stomach. Going to work to affect positive change tomorrow. #blacklivesmatter 08/26/2020
