Headed to Vegas

We managed to get 5 miles in this morning. Currently I am sitting in the Colorado Springs airport getting ready to head to Vegas. I get in around 11pm local time. We are starting to board so will have to update this later.

Where does the time go? I can’t believe that it is already Wednesday and I am half through my vacation. Yesterday we got Eric to get his stuff moved out and into the rental house. Then the guys showed up to fill and seal the driveway. It looks so much better and should hold up over the winter.

This morning we got up and went out to breakfast and then headed down to Canyon City. We played 9/holes at the Frisbee golf course. The course is pretty decent and is by the college.

We then headed over to the train station and got tickets to ride the Royal Gorge train through the canyon. Oh man they had some awesome food and the scenery was most excellent.

We made it back to the Springs at around 4pm. It was a great day and I know I had a blast.

I need to call the tree trimmer and get him scheduled and take the truck in tomorrow to have one of the door locks fixed. I think we are headed out to do some more hiking tomorrow.

Happy Hiking!

Vacation and so much to do!

We finally closed on a house that we were looking at. We spent most of last weekend painting the basement and have several more rooms to go. I hope to get one more done this week before I head out of town.

I cleaned out the boys stuff out of the work-out room so I have it back finally. His stuff is in the garage and hopefully will be out of here tomorrow. Then I can begin focusing on our basement and get some more stuff move out of here.

This morning Candy and I took Clark to school and then hiked up Helen Hunt Falls. Came home and cleaned and then went out to run a few errands. I plan on taking Clark in the morning and then trying to get some miles in. Will most likely drive up to GCR and then see where I end up. I figure if I am out hiking I don’t have to help the kid move. I mean I already move it all down to the garage so he should be able to handle it from there. Know what I mean Vern!

With the work-out room clean I have been on the treadmill and doing some lifting. I called a paving guy today as we need to have our asphalt driveway sealed and hope to have that done on Wednesday and now I am looking for a tree guy as I need to have some trees trimmed and removed.

Man, I am on vacation but it seems like I am working my butt off!

Happy Hiking!
