14 out of 15

I've been working a lot lately... 14 out of the last 15 days. A few weeks back I was promoted at Spring Creek Ranch to be one of the new banquet captains. It was a good change, but because of that, I've been picking up more shifts and working a lot of hours between my two jobs.

A couple weeks ago we had some crazy thunderstorms. Following the storms came a hazy smoke from wildfires in Idaho. The sun was a deep red.

Most days I start work between 6 and 7 in the morning. It's early, but it allows me to still have play time in the evenings. Unless I'm working a weekend banquet, I'm usually out of work by about 6pm at the latest. That leaves me two solid hours of light to ride Teton Pass with Alex and Adam.

I recently bought stiffer front and rear springs for my suspension and have a lot more confidence in my riding now. The trail has been getting pretty dry and loose lately and caused me to have a few spills on Monday. Riding bikes isn't always painless. I generally wear a full-face helmet, gloves, and knee/shin pads, but I guess I need to invest in some arm guards.

I woke up and left for work at about 5am this morning and found a nice little notice on my car window. I've parked there many times and have never had a problem. I was parked about 100 feet from the driveway of the house I was staying at and in a pullout completely off the street, not to mention there is a stairway leading to the pullout from the backdoor. I found it slightly annoying.
