Today I leave for my spring Moab trip. I know what you're thinking--weren't you just there? Yes, I was. Well kind of. I never actually entered Moab city limits. And it was for RAWROD, so it's not really the same as a Moab trip.

Here are some things I'm looking forward to:
  • Riding my 29er: this is my first true Moab trip on the 29er. I had it with me last year, but we didn't ride anything but Slickrock. I'm looking forward to getting it out on some other trails.
  • Moab diner: the nice thing about riding bikes all day is that I can eat a milkshake every night with a lot less guilt. It won't be guilt-free, though, because that's not how I'm wired.
  • Friends: the first three days will just be hanging out with the guys and riding bikes. There's something restorative about having nothing on my agenda but riding my bike.
  • Family: wife and kids plus my bro and his family are coming on Friday. It's a ton of fun to see the kids running around together and having a blast in the giant sandbox that is Southern Utah redrock country. And I love just hanging out with my bro and his wife. Not to mention my wife and I honeymooned in Moab, so there's nothing better than being there with her.
  • Not working: there is absolutely nothing I look forward to about going to work each day. I won't miss it and will certainly dread going back next week.
Wanna know what would make the trip even better? If I came back and my handful of readers had donated to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.
