Do you use BugGuide at all? I find it to be a really good place to have insects and spiders identified. Good luck with it! :-)

Eric, you might check out Genus Trochosa. The eye arrangement on your spotting looks like wolf spider to me. Great photos!

Common house spider doesnt really help identify it, and it wasnt near any house.
