Late on the afternoon of July 3rd I fled the valley, and the smoke (and hysteria) from the nearby wildfire, and sought refuge at the Secret Lair®. It is becoming my very favorite place to be. It’s quiet, empty, and beautiful. And the roads and trails are tailor made for Crusher training. I spent the holiday riding, relaxing, and eating. Really, it was an ideal day. Returning to the office on Thursday felt obscene. Alas, that’s life. But it’s a good life.
