I've fallen behind in my blogging duties.
I am enjoying a little R&R out West. This is typically the week I'd be riding horses in Wyoming, but the economy and other circumstances prevented that this year. In a feeble attempt to make up for missing
, a buddy of mine from Wyoming and I are at another buddy's house in Florida . Tucson
It doesn't have the rugged, rustic, cowboy cachet of our
ranch outings, but the drinking, laughing and lie telling are about the same. Wyoming
This has been a low-key trip. My buddies are actually working. Both are IBMmers and work out of their homes. My
buddy has been able to put in some daytime goofing-off hours with me. My Tucson buddy is a 10-hour-a-day, nose-to-the-grindstone kind of guy and he doesn't usually come out of the upstairs office except for a biological imperative or to grab a glass of water. Florida
We made a quick trip to the top of
yesterday. It was 30 miles, 8,000 feet in elevation and a 21-degree drop in temperature from my buddy's house. The scenery, though, was spectacular. It was truly amazing. Mt. Lebanon
We have been to three different micro breweries here. We will return to one of them, Nimbus, this evening for some Monkey Ale. There are still a couple that will go unexplored. We have to leave something for next trip.
I did manage to muster the energy and motivation this morning to write an installment of my twice-a-week auto blog for Interest.com. Afterward, I had to take a nap.
I blame my lack of get-up-and-go on the elevation; I suspect it has more to do with laziness.
Oops; time for my afternoon siesta.
