  1. Why is it every time I get ready for a little R&R, some sort of work crisis comes up? Since I
    couldn't sleep very well, I got up early and went thru my email. I think I fixed the problem late
    last evening, just wanted to see how the customer's testing was going. Checked my email, made a few
    phone calls, sent a few messages and hopped in the hot tub for a quick soak. I don't have it too
    bad, I live in the mountains outside of Durango at 7,800 ft, pretty private lots, the hot tub looks
    out over ponderosa forests and mountains in the distance. What was that? Haven't heard that in a
    long time. It was a hummingbird (a very distinctive sound). Spring must really be on its way. That
    and I'm almost packed to leave for the Fruita Fat Tire Festival. Yeah ... another sign of spring.

    This is the first time I've been in several years, it was always fun in the past, ride, watch
    hockey, ride, drink, ride, hang out ... If you have not been to one of these before (and you are
    pretty social as I am) I highly recommend it. Lots of like-minded folks, just good clean fun, plenty
    of riding and new things to do and learn. And if you are in the market for a new ride, a great
    opportunity to demo all sorts of bikes, several in one day if you are so inclined. And as an added
    bonus, I'm going with the Mrs. this year, and we are ready! (already have about 500 miles on our
    bikes between mountain and road this season, and months of spinning to back that up). She has never
    ridden in Fruita, it will be fun to have her on trails which are new to her, even if they are
    popular during the festival.

    Spring is here baby, and I'm outta here. Have a great weekend!

    A good start would be.... a few miles on an empty desert singletrack with views of a few mountain
    ranges at the apex. Yeah, that would be good.
