Hey Zo and Geo I will try to let you know when the Boston trip is settled we were supposed to figure it out today but this job is always chaotic. Its tough being so far from the airport and sometimes having them call me back right after i finally made it home!
Just back from a town trip (wyoming currently), we have to take our trash/garbage to the dump where you can seperate it out into recycling but it does make you think more about what is trash and where it comes from. No composting in bear country, I hope to make a worm farm next year but no where to put it this year!
Also in town tired on snow machine helmets since it seems like sport specific would be good there but they don't fit well with glasses so I am thinking maybe I'd rather just ski and snow shoe when I am home and worry about it next year..I went to the thrift store to look for used helmets and bough a pair of tele skis instead
In town also swam 4,000 scm in the pool. Yesterday was 3 miles of nsowshoeing near the end I had to break trial and was up to my thighs in powder, I think if it was any deeper i couldn't make it happen its a pretty steep slope there too.
The day before I x-c skiied up and down in a storm (@ 5 miles) breaking trial for the first 2 up and the return it was so nice to get to a nearby skiiers trail for a bit before heading back. I startled a deer (or he startled me) that seemed to be sleeping under the snow. I fell down and he ran off.
I am slowly starting back into work too and finding that people just didn't' ever read email I sent them or do what they needed to before the end of the year so now they are panicking and I am trying not to be reactive.
So I hope to get one more longer x-c ski in this weekend before heading south and east.
