Labor Day weekend

Labor Day has come and gone and with it a full weekend of activity. My band, The North 17th St Band, played at the Grand Junction Off Road race. Which turned out to be much more fun than I thought it would. I am looking forward to participating more next year (fingers crossed that there will be a next year) anyway we played a hour and a half long set and had a hoot of a time. It was a huge stage! But I am embarrassed to say how long it has been since we played in public. All was well. Many of these songs we have been playing for 5 years and we all have deepened into our craft. So we mostly nailed it and the few listening seemed entertained, or at least not willing to heckle. Heck I even saw a few singing along. Here is our instrument line up before we began.

Then Kate and I rushed to Moab to meet Nancy at her brother and sister in law's house for some riding. I really need to remember that they are not breakfast kind of people. I need big food in the morning to get me started. Gotta take the matter in my own hands... But they are fabulous hosts and good friends as well as family. I only got in one ride on Sunday but my it was a doozy. Milissa shuttled Nancy, Christian and I to the top of burro pass to ride the whole enchilada back into Moab. Big day big fun!

30+ miles of sweet riding from 11thousand feet at the top of burro pass to 35hundred something back on hwy 128. Nice!
