Keeping The Bags Packed

I don't see the point in unpacking anymore. Really since May I have been living out of my duffel bag. Why do I even own a dresser? Yeah a few things change in what goes in and out of it, but it all is about the same. Well I have been in Tucson for 8 days already and it's time to hit the road again. It's a huge bummer too cause I really like it here. The temp is perfect, around 70 everyday, sunny. The riding is pretty fun, roads are a bit rough, but still good, and there are lots of pretty looking girls here, a big bonus. It's also been great hanging out with PJ again. I forgot how much fun I had my freshman year at college. Sadly it also reminds me how much more school I have left...

Today's ride was pretty cool, another biggie. Tucson out to Kitt Peak and back, quite the trip. Got stopped by border control. Talked to them for a little, they all seemed pretty nice and thought we were nuts for riding out from town as far as we did.

Here's a better shot of the top of the climb that I stole from Wikipedia. That was a big cap off to a great week of training here for me. Still having a bit of a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that it's December. But that's cool, I have never been very found of Christmas, and this gives the groomers at Spring Gulch more time to get every perfect for me when I get back. Funny enough though, everyone I have talked to seems to make sure to mention how good the skiing is there, almost to make me regret leaving below freezing temps and lots of snow for this. hahaha.

It's hard to think that it's still 2009. Been such a long year for me, in good ways and bad. And it makes me even more happy to transition to 2010. However I am glad that I caught a lot of my mistakes this year before starting another year like the past. The biggest mistake being that I really need to focus more on the now. I would say I have fun 99% of the time regardless of what's going on, but I think I have made myself miss out on a lot of fun and other opportunities because I was too concerned with something months before hand, or even worse, something from the past. I think I am seeing more and more everyday how much of a playground life is. And usually for me, one thing that will probably never change is a happy Colin is a fast Colin.
