I was down in Washington this past weekend staying in a Chalet (well it was actually more of a 'Crib') for Tom's 26th birthday. The cabin comfortably fit 15 of us with room for more. We were all well fed by Pat (meatloaf) and Erik (spaghetti) and we all made sure to stay hydrated by drinking as much as possible and canon balling into the hot tub only to be followed by a chocolate cake slap fight. I felt surpisingly good this morning considering that we spent two days riding hard after very little sleep.
It was my first time up Mt Baker, and my first time wearing a neon pink one piece ski suit (including belt). Pictures to follow as soon as I can steal them off Erik/Tom's sites. I didn't realize Baker was so close, and will be spending more of my free weekends there. Props to Tom for organizing the weekend.
