I don’t always see a vulture perched on a park light post but when I do I take a grainy picture.

I’m adding the Maah Daah Hey to my list of 2015 races. This looks like fatbike heaven!

I might want to join you sir.

Was in Wiiliston for six weeks with only a cross bike. Should have taken something beefier.

Exactly 4 yrs ago today I was rudely awoken by a call at 4AM from my wife on vacation, some 2,700 miles away. I had grand plans for the day- finishing the electrical wiring in our demo’d kitchen and studying for a round of Grad School finals. But alas, our child had other ideas for this day when he decided to enter the world, exactly 2 months early.

Up to this point we were waiting to find out the sex of our child at birth, but reality sunk in knowing my wife may not hold this guy in, not allowing me to be present for the birth. I was actually waiting at the airport when my mother in law called saying ‘congrats! It’s a boy and your wife is fine. Gotta go.’ A boy?? Well alright!! That flight across the country was the longest of my life. Needless to say I was throwing back the gin n tonics for 4 hours.

My minion weighed in just over 3 lbs and didn’t have a name for 3 days. Since we didn’t know the sex in advance we had to negotiate on some names. He was tiny, frail and not fully developed. We lived in the NICU at Dartmouth for 5 1/2 weeks and were by his bedside for 16+ hours per day. Time stood still. Our lives temporarily placed on hold.

Thinking back about this time brings tears to my eyes. It was so scary and the path ahead unknown. As the weeks passed bye, this little guy put on weight and grew healthy enough for us to travel home, back across the country.

Today is Archie Baron’s 4th birthday and I love him more than life itself. Happy birthday son. Daddy loves you.

Happy Birthday!
