Dan's Wedding

See that photo above? That's Dan, We've done countless trips together and I look foreward to many more. I was honored when he asked me to be best man on his big day.
It was a really special wedding, very true, very warm and sincere shared with a wonderfull group of friends and family.

It was really fun being back in Ft.Collins, havent been there since I moved away 6 years ago. Felt like a long time. Got some sun, and some snow, a healthy mix for springtime colorado.
Dan at Rotary,

Dan and I have been Friends with James Bleakly for a long time when he was first getting his roots set in the ground and starting Black Sheep . I think Dan and I both had ti softails # 4 & 5 and I later got the second 29er he ever made. James's wedding gift to Dan and Amy were their rings, which he machined out of solid titanium for Amy, and part of a seat stay tube for Dan's. James let me borrow a totally kick ass, bueatiful long travel softail, with a worthy price tag... I was totally stoked. It felt sooooooo good to tear it up on the old stomping grounds. Thanks James!

After staying out till 3:00 am friday night and working out the hangovers it was finally wedding day, bikes, bikes and more bikes! We rode to the wedding, then after the ceremony about 50+ of us took off to the streets for a cruiser parade of old town before the dancing began...

Congrats you two!

Mud flats

Conditions are great right now for biking on the Frozen silt on the Anchorage Coast... I call it "The Real Coastal Trail".

Its a playground for childlike exploration that feels like a combination of biking on the moon and an abstract art painting...

Super fun 5 minutes from home.

The Mamma visits!

About two weeks ago, mamma Parsons came to visit!
hooray mom visiting in winter! She brought the New York winter weather with her as temps warmed up from zero to above freezing, but that did stop us from having fun and getting out every day. She's really only half her age and not slowing down any. It was really a great visit.

Skiing up Archangle valley at Hatchers

Into the chinook - slush skiing in the rain to the Eagle River Rapids Yurt:

At the yurt - Really estatic about the annies mac and cheese dinner!

Climbing Mt Baldy in Eagle River!

mamma with an ice axe - watch out!

woof woof!

Finally on the last day the sun came out, we went skiing at Johnsons Pass. It was a totally bueatiful day and great way to end the visit!
