SUP at the beach

Took out the Stand Up Paddleboard at the beach today. The boys took about 2 minutes to get the hang of it even though I was a little shakey on it.

After a bit we went shark fishing off it out in deeper waters. Soy Sauce caught a couple and Mas had one break off just below us. Soy said it was his greatest achievement ever while fishing.....

While we were out there, this little guy floated up to us. Mas saw him and pulled him aboard to undergo a thorough examination. We believed him dead for some time but eventually he began to squirm about in my hand and we released him back to the briny deep.

Driving some back roads a couple days ago. We saw this guy and hoped it was one of our captured ones but it looks to be free of GPS transmitter.

I was just checking the page views for the previous 30 days.... 217   !?
I had no idea anyone even looked at this any more. I better post some content!

Ski day!

Well, the view counters say people are still reading this, so I think it's high time for an update.
Yesterday was the first of several ski days the kids get this season. The Pagosa Springs homeschool group lets us join with them on their group days. The kids get a 1/2 day (whole day if they want it) lesson, equipment rental, and full lift ticket for some ridiculous price ($20.00?) It actually makes skiing affordable...
We had a great day and even though it was 9º in town, it was 24º up at the mountain and warmed up even more throughout the day. After their morning lesson, the twins really wanted to get poles which they don't use for the lessons. I said 'sure' so they ran off to get some from the rental place and then proceeded to use them for a perceived speed advantage while tucking down all the trails. Here's some video of the action:

Dirt bike trip

Met CB in LC on Sunday night. Spent the night at the yurt and hit the road in the morning for Montrose to meet Rog & Bon, Cor, and Garret for some dirtbiking. Got to Montrose and found out Cor was in the 'Urgent Care' with some feaver, shakes, aches, etc. The Urgent Care was housed in a strip mall next to a tanning salon and pizza parlor. They gave him some antibiotics and sent him on his way, the large target on his back was an infected pore..... hmmmm. Eventually we took him to the real hospital and convinced them it was, in fact, Lyme Disease. He's well on his way to recovery now. Then CB broke both wrists......
