Short Track Racing

This is what we need here in Asheville. I need to talk to a few people and see if this would be possibility. I don't race mountain bike anymore because of the crazy travel involved to race in a few races, and being a spectator at a mountain bike race is painful. When you have a family this type of racing is very appealing. When you can get the whole family involved it’s going to be successful. I have a hard time believing I'm the only one in this area who would take advantage of a month long short track series during the summer. I guess I’ll see what I can do. Check out the link below.

Now that the tree house is almost complete, Claire is a little older, and Lyn’s ankle is healing I figured it was time to get back on the bike. SSWC is at the end of August so I guess it would be a good idea to start riding again….you think? It always amazes me how long it takes to get in shape and how fast you can get out of shape. I guess all the beer and Oreo’s over the last 3 months has not helped. I’m about as fast as a turtle right now. Hopefully I can get my legs in good enough shape to enjoy the up and coming trip to Napa.

Weekends Are So Fun!!!!

Once again not much time to write so here is a small recap of the weekend.

- Wednesday night Lyn almost broke her foot. It turned out to be a really bad sprain. 6 weeks to recover.

- Friday night Paige I spent our first night in the tree house.

- Saturday did a good road ride, took a nap, and went on the 7th annual running man pub crawl downtown. 100 or more people showed for the outing.

- Sunday Randal and Stef were in town from MN.. Did a good mountain bike ride with Randal, eat some good food from the grill, sat in the tree house and watched the sunset and had a few beers. Also put up the new pulley system so you can send a basket from the house to the tree house. My days in JH working on lifts finally paid off.

I had a few people ask for a few more photos of the tree house. Here they are.

Another Big Weekend

Sorry no time to write much. Let me sum it up.

1 – Went to a baby shower and ended up seeing an old acquaintance from Lincoln that I have not seen in over 15 years. He and his family live her in Asheville. Very cool!

2 – Went to a flapper party. Rented a yellow zoot suit and Lyn wore her cool beaded dress. Lots of fun!

3 – Finished up the second story of the tree house. I cannot believe it’s almost complete.

4 – Actually found some time to do a little biking.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.
