Dirt and more dirt...

Today was an exhausting day to say the least. In brief, My son and I headed over to SMP to meet some folks doing work on a new section of trail. I wanted to see what had been flagged and check out the progress. So far, so good! We hiked (Me with my son in the backpack) for a while on the marked and somewhat benched trail, then did a very brief bit of bench cutting ourselves before heading to the KC Zoo. The Zoo was a blast! We got in some mileage there as well, fed some wildlife and saw a handful of elephants. What more could you ask for? After the zoo my son spent some time with his mom while I headed over to do some laps at Swope. I met Travis and Kevin and we did I think four or five laps. Swope trails are fun and I got a good work-out in, which is why we were there. I am still hesitant on the fixed gear, but I figure you just have to keep trying. After a great day, we had some garden burgers for dinner followed by hot chocolate, yum! Last but not least my wife hands me this bit of mail...

Great news to end a great day! And in case you can't read...I am IN! Leadville 100 here I come.
