I'm off! Or should I say "we're off"; just about to drive up to Huntington Lake, at 7,000' in the Sierras, North-East of Fresno, to crew for Megan in the C-15 North American Championships. Should be excellent!
A few quick notes on the way out...
Particularly apropos considering I'm sailing on a windy mountain lake this weekend, check out this picture of an International-14 on Donner Lake. Wow. You must click through to enlarge, what a great shot...
I had to switch from my Pre back to my Centro. The battery life on the Pre was too horrible. I need an actual phone for this weekend... after my local Sprint store has more units in and can swap, I'll switch back. I remain hopeful that my particular unit was defective and that they don't all have such horrible battery life.
RAAM is under way! A 3,000 mile cycle race from California to Maryland, wow. I always think this is the weirdest thing, that RAAM doesn't get more press coverage. It is an incredible event. The route is a single stage, 35% longer than the Tour de France, and the athletes finish in 9 days instead of 23. No stopping to sleep, eat, nothing. On and on and on until you finish. Wow.
Can you handle this ZooBorn? It is a Tawny Frogmouth hatchling. Personally I would say it is the living embodiment of "fuzzball" :)
