WHY ARE SKI TOWNS SEEING MORE SUICIDES?

Read this....a very good read indeed and the reason I had to get out.

Why Are Ski Towns Seeing More Suicides?: On a sunny morning in late February, Tom Slocum, a 57-year-old ski bum in Telluride, Colorado, walked up Tomboy Road, a popular hiking route that winds above the north side of town. An avid athlete…

A QUICK TALK ABOUT THE LIBERAL ANTI GUN LOBBY....

I have a very good friend that was the victim of a random, drug related, wrong address, wrong person stabbing last night. This person was stabbed by three assailants as they entered his house even though he was not the person they were looking for. He is one of the coolest, nicest people on this planet and a tremendous mentor for children and adults alike.  He ran into his kitchen and grabbed a knife to defend his family. He was successful and received serious wounds during the altercation and he is going to live. For all of you anti-gun liberal left wingers who think that guns are the problem....this image above is one of many guns I own. If three people try to invade our home, they will all leave this planet with souvenirs from this weapon. I do not own this gun to harm anyone, I shoot targets with it a few times a year. I also own it to defend my home and family. I'm not into meth heads breaking into my home and trying to stab me to death. That is all.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE CHRISTIAN VANDE VELDE COMMENTATE ON TV FOR THE ATOC.....

Why not just have Lance Armstrong do it? I'm so sick of the double standards in professional road cycling, it's just a bunch of crap.

RIDING ALASKA, ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO.

About 15 years ago I went to Anchorage to fish and see the sights. I also dug up some gear and went for a bike ride. It never got dark. It was the Summer Solstice. I caught a big Salmon on the trip, but that is another story.

DOG AS A SICK....

Two weeks ago while visiting my 89 year old mom in Florida, I got sick. It has been some kind of super funky virus to deal with. Z Pack and prednisone kind of shit. What's worse, Anna and my mom got the crap as well. It's been two weeks of basically coughing my fucking head off. Coughed so much and hard I pulled and abdomen muscle, a great joy. Every time I cough I aggravate that bastard. Must be Legionares or some other exotic Florida thing. If you watch the above picture long enough, I will cough on your face and you will be the next infected case of the Zika Legionares Csars plague. Keep staring.

CATCHING UP TO THE WHISKEY...

It's been a very busy couple of weeks all while being basically on the death bed sick, but it's done now, so let's catch up, if I may. My fiance and myself took a trip to Florida to visit my 89 year old mother. It was a lot of fun and we occasionally took a break from eating while we were there, but it was some damn good eating. 

I even went swimming a couple of times because we were in Florida and it was hot outside.

The night before we all started to get sick, including mom, and we all still are sick a week later, we went to see the Panther-Islanders round one playoff game. The Islanders won in double overtime 2-1. It was a pretty awesome game and the rats were spared being thrown on the ice for the last time of the season.

We went to this cool new trail head in the Everglades, which is a 27 mile gravel loop you can ride your bike on, and watched the sunset. We saw some alligators and a bunch of birds. There were some bugs there too.


These ducks swam by one day. It was a big deal.

This is a good place to golf, and a really good place to bass fish and it is in my Mom's backyard.

We had to fly around some big storm clouds on the way back to Denver, they looked very cool from the airplane.

I tried the brand new train ride home from the airport. The train broke and it took me two hours. It was really cold and I coughed my brains out getting more sick. It was not as much fun as I thought it was going to be. Maybe next time.

Then I flew to Phoenix and drove up to Prescott for the Whiskey 50 which should probably really be called the Kaolin Cosmos comedy hour. He never stops the entire weekend, which is good, because I was still sick all weekend.

A lot of people raced their bikes, near 1800 on Satirday

It rained and stopped and rained and stopped all day Saturday.

I ate as many In-N-Out burgers as I could in three days, which was many. They even delivered us lunch on Saturday, Animal Style. It was awesome. Now I'm back home in Colorado, and we are all still sick. The end.

Dave McElwaine captured this image of my high five to Ben Sonntag as he wrapped up his 50. Second place behind phenom Howard "the sniper" Grotts earned him a check for $3000.
