Great trip, but it's good to be home.

I - da - man! OK, slow man. But I rode all but 15 miles of the 2010 CRMBT. Got caught in rain, hail, and temperature drop to 35 degrees on the ride to Estes Park. But, thanks to all the good thoughts, I made it up Mt Evans, across Trail Ridge Road, as well as adding Loveland, Berthoud, Juniper, Squaw, and Gore Passes to my climbing resume. I've got lots of pictures to share, and some stories to tell. But, today I need to rest and be with my puppies. But I wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone who wished me well, and everyone who helped make it possible for me to do this. Thanks to Peter and Hillary, Kevin and Ann, and all the incredible volunteers at CRMBT. Thanks to Theo, the Sherpa Packer, Jerry, Lynda, and Stefan from Rocky Mountain Sports Massage, the team from A Spice of Life Catering, the Hub Grub, all the riders who shared the ride and encouraged each other along the way. And thanks to my wife for letting me ride up mountains while she takes care of my pack.
