Casey and Trump
David and Susan live with their friends Casey, Trump, Tabby, Skipper and Kitchi, near Lincoln City, Oregon.

Their home in the woods is almost exactly on the 45th parallel, half-way between the Equator and North Pole and within sight of the Pacific Ocean.

They fly for fun on the wide, sandy beaches at the foot of the Cascade Mountains.

Trump and Casey mostly watch.
