First the bike related news. My wife let me buy plane tickets for my bike trip next month (which up until now was still tentative). Guess that means it's official! We (meaning my brother in law and I) will be riding from a starting point near Idaho Falls up through the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, then across to Bonners Ferry, Idaho for a total of about 500 miles. We have 4 days to complete the trip, so it should be quite the adventure. Fully unsupported. It's been a long time since I've done a ride like that, but the last one was one of the most amazing trips I've ever been on. Can't WAIT!

Secondly, (and more importantly) Tahlia Ruth Green (my daughter) was born yesterday at 9:10 am!!! 7lb 5oz of very cute little girl. She looks just like her older sister, who is absolutely adorable, so we're pretty excited. Glad everything went well, and mother and baby are both healthy and happy!


This good news is good enough to make me not care about the new tire I just destroyed on a piece of glass on Monday!

The best news is that you are married to a woman who is OK with you taking a 4-day bike trip with a one-month-old baby at home!

Seriously, sounds like a great trip and congrats on the new baby girl.

Congratulations! you need to start passing out cigars!

I am glad to hear both your wife and newborn daughter are well. That is better news for sure than the ride... are you sure you are gonna want to be away from the newborn for 4 days? You better ride faster so you can be with your daughter more.
