My good man Marcus got a pass for me to use at the Oudoor Retailer's show today, and a good time was had by all. There was so much stuff and so many interesting people there, that the five hours I spent went by like so many scared mice.
I met some very nice people and had some very enlightening conversations, all while surrounded by some of the best trappings and spoils of materialism gone to the nth degree of madness. Pretty cool.
I got over to my sister's house in the south of the valley in the late afternoon, got to play with the nieces for a while and was fortunate enough to get in on dinner and a choc-chip cookie binge.
On the way home, I realized what a great time I had getting out of Dodge.
