|Sorry for the focal blur but you get the idea.|
So with a ten day camp reduced to a nine day camp it was time to get down to business. The sun wasn't as present as it was last year, but we never had to ski in the rain. The snow was hard packed when we started and very soft by the time we finished. An average day consisted of three hours of skating in the morning and a couple of hours of running or biking in the afternoon. There was a lot of eating and sleeping crammed in between. The mountain biking in Bend is superb. Better than Utah and more accessible than Whistler, in my opinion. I wish I could say I was a talented mountain biker. Unfortunately the afternoon rides were not as great for me as they were for the other guys. It worked out fine, because it gave me a good excuse to get into running shape for the S.W. Collins 5km coming up next month.

With a solid three hours of sleep we were up and packing the rental for the trip back to the old right side. Everything made it on time. Lake Placid is still here. I think it may have snowed a couple of days ago, but I was in a t-shirt for Memorial day. Volume will go down as the rifle and intensity go back up for week or two more. I should be back in the county by mid June.
