Awww, that's a terrible shame, Steve! Just as I join the family, you
and Deb run away -- coincidence? ;-)
Well, get that house sold, and we'll look forward to seeing your smiling
faces next year.
I recently moved to Boulder with Ann (my sweetie). All that time spent
in the mountains last year really made it difficult to go back to the
lowlands. I've been thrashing the ol' quads on a trail or two here, and
can't wait to get back to the San Juans in June (San Juan Solstice, then
the Silverton 10k followed by a stroll in the hills the following week).
Miss you, we'll be thinking of you and Deb!
