We've spent the last couple days in Crested Butte, heading home tomorrow morning. Kids didn't feel great this morning so I took off hiking by myself. Rode the ski lift up the mountain and hiked almost all the way to the peak, stopped about 1/10th mile shy of the very top, the remainder of the route required scrambling over steep loose rocks, I have limits. Breathtaking views. After hiking and riding back to the base, I took a different ski lift and hiked from the top through a dense birch forest trail to a neat bar & grill. It's been a quick trip to Colorado, but we've tried to make the most of it.

I got a new toy! Not entirely sure the charge controller is working right... but could be that I am missing something in the poorly translated user manual. Regardless, I'm enjoying figuring it out.

Also congrats to all the award winners from Enid and elsewhere. We were well represented this evening.

So after my dad termed off, I applied for his slot on the local draft board. It is official, I am part of the Selective Service System! Read whatever irony into that you choose.

Home after a long day of travel. Big Bend is breathtaking. We walked through the Rio Grande and threw rocks into Mexico.

I bought a truck on the internet this week. Rob helped me pick it up in Wichita yesterday. I love my new old truck.

I built this Cuban Flag humidor to be sold as a silent auction item at the CDSA International Wine Tour fundraiser this evening. Looking forward to a great event!

Working on a project that needs blue wood, so I made this copper acetate stain, very happy with how it turned out.

Made it seven weeks into the year before spilling coffee all over my desk calendar. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself.
