SDS Channel 9 Video is up

Tour De Peaks

This is a non-SSDS related posting today :-)  I did the Tour De Peaks today with my wife and Stan another member of the SSDS team.  It was a great ride, though it didn’t start off the way.  After a brief stint of rain and wind the weather let up and we had a great…

Late in blogging these days

Do I have high Movie standards?
