As I mentioned, I was in the wonderful state of Colorado for the past few days and I've returned--less than jubilantly--in order to assume the duties of my daily life here in Austin, Texas. I've got a lot to discuss with all of you; however, I spent most of today getting caught up on what I set aside in the name of rest and relaxation. As you can see below, I had quite a good time in Colorado.
Thanks to the fine folks at the Four Seasons in Vail and--yes, I'm aware of the irony of what I'm about to type--the other fine folks at the Ritz-Carlton in Bachelor Gulch for continuing to serve me copious amounts of free wine in spite of what I've been told was obvious intoxication. I'll give you the rundown on all of the mountain biking, hiking, and, of course, drinking as soon as possible.
Oh, and I'd expect a roaring response from Derek and the Boys---all of whom will probably want a signed copy of the picture below. I'll talk to y'all soon. DP
