I Think I'm Back


Wow. I just spent 6 days and 5 nights with 4 bikes and 3 co-workers in 2 crappy motel rooms on 1 grand adventure. It's gonna take a while to settle the brain and weed through the 263 images/videos before I can post any coherent babble.

Let's just say I am happy to be home. This was the first extended trip I've taken where Sylvia was old enough to miss me AND express it over the phone. Having your almost 3-year-old daughter say quietly, "Daddy, I miss you" will rend even the toughest of hearts. I was ecstatic to be rolling homeward from the light rail on my Big Dummy last night at 11pm. I was cold, too -- it was nearly 30 degrees colder than when we left sunny Denver.
More from me later. I have plenty to do for now, like remembering how to get to work in the morning.

Thanks! I'm glad to not have been missed. Since other Mpls bike bloggers (aka Hurl) update their blogs once every couple of weeks, I can see how you'd think nothing was out of the ordinary.
