Winter is almost here

Sunday is the Winter Solstice, that will be the "start of winter" but more importantly it will be the shortest day and hence the turning point when days FINALLY start getting longer. That is one tough part of living in a northern clim, the days can get really short. By 4 pm this time of year it is already getting pretty dark. And as I write this at 7:05am the sun is just coming up. It makes for a tough go at staying active when you leave the house in the dark and return in the dark. That being said we are almost at the turning point, can you tell I'm ready for that?

The holidays are almost here, so I'm getting excited for a bit of down time and the chance to get out on the hill with the girls.

The bike- haven't ridden it since that warm night. We're full on back in cold and snow, so soon we'll be heading out for night skiing instead of thinking of the bikes. Of course I'm thinking a great deal about what frames will be on the order form from Salsa. They have a new scandium 29er SS that looks pretty sweet- basically the Mamasita with an EBB. Then there is also the Chilli Con cross bike that is priority one. Time will tell!

Ok enough out of me, I need coffee.
