race day

The Colorado water is alarmingly low this year due to little to nearly no snow melt. It is the big talk currently in the whitewater community with the Teva Mountain Games taking place, beginning today, in Vail, Colorado. This event is So. Much. Fun.

Teva Games are the Olympic style games of all extreme, outdoor sports such as Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Stand Up Paddling, etc. All the Pro’s from around the world show up to compete for some real money. In the kayaking community said money will support them on the Colorado circuit, to win a little more money hopefully along the way.

Here is a video of the creek level at the 2010 Teva Games:

blast from the past

I had a good time watching this video on the Beastie Boys. Made me want to get up and dance! At least, try to find my old tapes and CD’s of the albums we have owned! Love it!

I hope your Saturday is as grand as you want it to be!

Coming soon to Asheville….

Stay Tuned….



After a successful day at EORA we left with a bag full of goodies. But the best prize of all was the delivery of our new GoLite Footwear shoes by the UPS man today! I received a pair of the ladies Sail Lite shoes and mrb received the Dart Lite.

These are trail running/hiking shoes! Seriously! I can get off the trail and still look good for the pub!! I have a thing for boat shoes and these mesh my mountain world to my salt water style. Not to mention they are completely comfortable, extremely light and satisfying for the wanna be shoe hoarder in me! The serious technology is in the flex of the sole. As you walk/run on rocks the shoes shape to the object, not rigid. Then the cushion to protect the foot while flexing is soft and supporting without a bunch of bulk. This makes it super light!

I really look forward to the river shoe that is in collaboration as we speak. Get this my river loving friends, they will fit in your playboat!! We got a glimpse and they look stellar!  I am looking forward to seeing these in production.

We can’t thank Jody Linehan, GoLite product manager and Gavin Rains of Let it Rain, for such a generous gift! Thank you gentlemen! As I sit now in my Sail Lite shoes I daydream of boardwalks and sailboats. I’ll take them on the trail tomorrow!!

I hope that you are all having a great week! It is a bit more chilly these days but the radiating sun has been splendid for outside play!

Happy Groundhog Day
