Exterior is done......well, 98% or so as there's always something to do.

Desert Sand: looks 1,000x better than the original Baby Diaper Yellow.

Pedaled 3 Sisters Friday & could barely stay upright, went OTB on Morrison Slide yesterday. Was hoping 3rd time would be the charm. Rocked some fun trails from up near Echo Lake down into Idaho Springs today. Felt a bit better, but caught a flat for good measure.

Just lean back & go.
I reckon this'll be All White later this week.
From the cockpit.
Trent in action.
Please Knock Before Entering Office
Snow's coming in 2 days.....time to say 'see ya next spring/summer' to most up-high riding.   : (

Some more Pike's Peak pix from Boomer - here

Todd & I got out to pedal all but one day of his stay. Made a bad call on the way to 3 Sisters Thursday afternoon - as we got near Lair'o the Bear we saw Darkness ahead, and lots of it. I figured rain was rolling in for the night, so decided to hit LoB for a quickie to beat it. 
Soaked pretty good about 1/2 mile in.
Then, after another 20 minutes, we were all dried off & pedaling towards the O'Fallon side. 
The Mechanical Bull
Friday was our day off the bikes. We just rolled down the street to visit our friendly neighborhood distiller.
I'd be thrilled with just one of those.

Friday's breakfast

Some real freakin' good-old-timey punk rock Saturday night. Did I mention they played a really good set?

I sadly missed beanfeSSt VIII............although v8.2 may take place this weekend. Hope to work it into the schedule.

Much more sadly - Kibbe is still MIA. The entire household is missing her so much!
I could really handle a miraculous journey home by her right now.

America's Mountain

Broken-down Boomer shuttled Jamie, Todd & me to 14,110' on Monday. 'Twas perfect weather.

What kind of fool rides a 29" HT down that trail? 
Todd getting to the bottom.
Some colorful sights....when we slowed enough to see'em.
Damn, that was some good chunk!!!
