Yes there is a Santa

It's been a crazy few days in around our house. Tanner's ski theft woes have brought out the good in many people. His story was posted on TGR's forum by a good local and the offers of help came pouring in. It kind of took on a life of its own and became a little overwhelming to Tanner. He was uncomfortable being the center of so much attention from people he doesn't know, but he learned some great life lessons. He's learned some people are low-lifes but many, many more are caring, generous and empathetic to his plight. It is all going to work out for the best and some new powder skis are in his future.

One of things I love about working in the outdoor industry is it's filled with really good people. This fact has been reinforced the last couple of days. Next time you're looking for skis, please consider Bluehouse and K2. Both companies have some quality folks working for them.

On another topic, I made it back on the bike today. 10 days off is a long time for me and I was ready for some exercise. The trainer was almost fun, but not quite. I'm working hard to find ways to keep fit and avoid massive trainer time this year. I'm pretty sure snowshoeing, XC skiing and running are in my future this year.
