I'm so rad!

We are home from Colorado. We made it in just over 15 hours yesterday and now we have today to chill! Our last day there was pretty laid back. I went out for a ride and my legs were still shot from climbing Mt Elbert. I was going to ride home but flatted. I've never used the CO2 inflator I had but apparently the internals were all rusted. It broke the seal on the CO2 but it wouldn't let air out into the tire. Crappy. Jess came and picked me up on the road. Figured I was done riding for the trip. We then went shopping in downtown Breck and to the art fair they had. It was fun! We got some cookies at Mary's Mountain Cookies and then hit the Empire Burger again. We then went up to Peak 8 to ride Alpine Slides. Unfortunately it started to rain and the slides were closed. I then offered to serve up a mountain bike demonstration at the Free Ride Park. So we headed there (Jess, Mom, Beav and Ali). My mom made a couple videos and then ran out of memory so we didn't get the last stunt or the big teeter. But the first stunt was rated a double black diamond (it was narrow and twisty) that Jess made me do and the second is the small teeter.





It felt great and everyone enjoyed! We then headed out to Happy Hour at the Whale's Tale (my dad wanted $.10 shrimp) and then out to some Italian place. I wasn't all that hungry so Jess and I just shared some pasta. Then we headed home and packed it up. Departed at 5:40am local time and got here at 9:57 local time (lost an hour.)

  • That sounds like an ass kickin' trip. Empire Burger sounds like it might be worth the trip alone (to me) coupled with the donut place. Glad to hear you had a day to chill and relax after that trip sounds like you might have needed it.

    I'll see you guys on Wednesday.

  • AS a former memeber of the USA luge junior development team, I must say, I used to kick ass at the alpine slides, sucky that they were closed
