I’m currently at my folk’s place in New Jersey, taking a week off to reboot my mind and get in some quality relaxation. It’s been 18+ months since I’ve had anything more than a 3-day weekend, and that’s no good. What is good, however, is the stack of vacation days I still have after taking this week off.
My original plan was to cut out of work early on Friday and high tail it down to the city for the Bonobo show with Eric. Well, things didn’t go quite as planned. Being that the weather in Vermont tends to be conveniently inconvenient, we were hit with hail, sleet and ice late Friday afternoon; killing my motivation to drive 5 hours south in the dark. So, I woke up early Saturday and hit the road at 7:30 towards New York. The afternoon was spent skating the LES skate park followed by some some salmon dancing in Times Square.
I made my way back to Jersey yesterday morning and decided to explore all the old roads I used to ride in high school. It was nostalgic to say the least…I really miss being able to do a quick 25 miles with 1,600 feet of climbing. Anyway, I’ll be heading back up to Vermont tomorrow for the Mad Dashes and to enjoy the rest of my week off. Also, I’d like to apologize for how slow things have been around here lately – I think this week of recuperation will bring a fresh perspective to these pages.
