Finally is the word of the day...

Finally it is... finally I sent out the T-Shirt my Mother requested from Steamboat which I purchased 2 months ago... finally I am cleaning our bathroom... cause I know someone else who isn't going to do it...(I'm taking a breather from cleaning it because I think I almost passed out from the Tilex fumes!) and most importantly this kid IS FINALLY OUT OF CREDIT CARD DEBT!!!! I made the payment today and today was a day I have been waiting for... for well about 8 years since I got my first credit card! I have worked hard over the last 6 months to actually put every extra bit of money I had into owning every toy and piece of gear I have!

I reached the point where I knew it was time to grow up and get rid of my controllable debt if I want to make bigger purchases in life. It is probably the best feeling I have had in a long time to know that those bastards no longer have a hold of me for a monthly payment. Now with that said... I know I wouldn't have been able to purchase some things that have come in very handy over the years in my travels and outdoor activities without having an I O U out there... but MAN it feels good not to have it anymore.

I also wanted to note that either no one has read my blog lately or you think I am capable of attacking this ride known as the Breckenridge 100. I thank you for believing in me if you have read it. The registration is supposed to open this weekend and I am going to sign up right away so hopefully it will be a go and then its time to just ride as much as I can. I'm not going to train specifically for it but I am going to put in as many miles and long hours in the saddle as I am able. It has been nice outside to ride but I know it's not worth getting full on yet cause we still have more snow to come in March. But I am going to try and start getting some weekends riding up in the mountains and hopefully out in Moab and Fruita. I'll be sure to keep you all updated... well those who read this thing anyway.

Alright back to surviving the fumes... I knew when I rolled outta bed this morning clapped my hands and said damn it's gunna be a good day... it would be... HA BS! Anyway enough of that get at you all later!
