I’ll say it one more time. As of 2014, Scott and I specialize in farms and storms. Maybe cattle ranches and tornadoes. We’re not quite sure about that one yet.

Gathering equipment and clothes.
Scott and I don’t do many paid gigs anymore. That is good and bad. Bad because it is always nice to earn some extra $$$. Good because it seems like in general, random joe/jane public feels like creative professionals’ time is worthless. To them, we sit around and watch indie documentaries all day while drink beer and roll around in money.
I mean, come on. They should know I drink whiskey when I do that.

When looking for good places to ride cx, a middle schooler might not be the best person to ask.
Because this person is in middle school, there is a good chance he/she doesn’t have a good internal road map, because they can’t drive and don’t really have a good reason to memorize streets.
So really, maybe you just wanted to ride some cross shit, but the whole thing turns into a treasure hunt.

Chatfield -> Deer Creek -> Bear Creek with Ian. We mix in science with our bike rides. Brunch booze at Session. Frozen fruit makes the best ice cubes.

Whenever Kate walks into the office she laughs at me. She thinks this is ridiculous. It is not ridiculous.

Ran a 5K with Kate, Gwynne, and Cameron.
Why do people run? It makes little to no sense. The beer afterwards, now that makes sense.

In the evening I saw my cat friend. It meowed at me and then I talked to Kate about how this fire station is haunted. Well, I think it’s haunted. I don’t have much proof.

I think every day this week when I have come home Kate has been taking a nap. Teaching kids is exhausting I guess.

53 miles. Denver -> Golden -> Rocky Flats. The heat was oppressive and forced us to drink beer. We had no other options.
