In Arid-Zona for the weekend visiting my mom and stepdad … since I won’t be able to visit for Christmas, this is an off weekend for the UTCX series, and there’s no snow to speak of in the canyons (and since I had a free ticket), I decided to fly down.

So, we’re doing a big birthday celebration for my step-dad, step-brother, step-sister, and assorted kids (although I have no idea which kids), this evening, then I fly back tomorrow afternoon in time to do some quick laundry and go back to work on Monday.

Still trying to figure out what I’m going to do for Thanksgiving … probably pizza and football, unless we get a major dump this upcoming week, in which case I’ll be up one of the canyons.

Much luck to those racing CX in Pokie-ID this weekend. Wake up, kick ass, repeat (as Train would say).
