Greetings from Buena Vista!

How often do you get stuck in traffic in a Buffalo traffic jam? Meghan says this is normal in Yellowstone....so check out this bad boy!

Just drivin' through Yellowstone....

Yep, I'm Trail Trash.



Riding the Jackelope.....


Meghan helps tame the beast....


God bless America!

Well, I wasn't planning on blogging while I was away at the TransRockies run but, hey my hubby brought along the technology so here I am!


We enjoyed a fantastic roadtrip from Banff to Yellowstone and then from Yellowstone to Colorado - and what can I say? I love this country! I looooooooove it! I love the roads and space and ever evolving scenery. I love to just sit back and enjoy the changing sky and landscape. And the company was pretty awesome too!! The lovely Meghan is as fantastic as I knew she would because I am an extremely good judge of character. Hee-hee. Keith of course, kept us entertained by talking for hours and hours and hours. The man can talk when enhanced by caffeinated beverages!


Anyhow, we have arrived in Buena Vista and will start the running tomorrow! At registration, we were blown away with the quality of our nice shiny new bags and the gear we got. Great swag. As an extra bonus we were treated to a real yummy welcome dinner and met up with lots of familiar faces and some new ones from blog world. I am even more excited now and ready to run. Those TransRockies folks sure know how to do it up right!

Off to ride that crazy Jackelope. Did I mention I love this country?

Quick note to anyone looking...

Leslie and Meghan are having a great time at "Summer Camp" and are sorry they are too busy with happy camper activities (flirting with camp boys, etc)...to write their required letters home...

They promise to update everyone when they return...

Forth place after 5 stages! Only 25 min to make up on third place. It's HAMMER TIME at mile 10 of stage 6!

Go team trail trash, go team trail trash, go team trail trash!

Journey to a Centum said...

OK, I'm a dumb ass, I don't seem to be tracking well today. Soooooo...4th place after four stages. Just a little stage 5 11,500 ft. Mt. to climb before you get to stage 6 and the mile 10 hammer time! Plenty of opportunity to make those runners ahead of you stare at your backsides as you pass them!

Good luck!

Goat-
It is true, somehow, somewhere I have lost my Disco Queen Party Panties. I need to find a replacement. Quick. It's drafty.
