Aspen Skiing

Kathie and I just returned from a great vacation: Skiing in Aspen, Colorado! Dan graciously invited us and some other friends to stay at his family’s condo, which was in a great location, convenient to everything in Aspen.

Kathie’s blog has our day-by-day journal, so I’m not going to repeat everything here… just click through and check out the story there! We’ve also uploaded our vacation photos to an Aspen Vacation album in our Gallery.


Newport Bermuda Sailboat Race

My brother Bob and his friend Jason started their two-handed sailboat race from Rhode Island to Bermuda yesterday. The race should take about five days, with them sleeping in shifts and racing the whole time. There are many classes of boats in the race, from yachts with large crews of people to small two-handed boats like the 34-foot Paladin that Bob is sailing. Good luck Bob and Jason!

Each boat has a GPS transponder so we can watch the race from home. The orange line in the bottom pictures below shows the path of the Paladin.
