Relaxing Weekend

Eagle River, WI is one of the coolest places around. It's quiet, relaxing, and you can truly enjoy the great outdoors. While everyone else was racing cross nationals or scavenging the net for the results I was maxin' and relaxin'. We drove up early Friday morning, ditched our car in Green Bay, got a ride the rest of the way with Andrea's parents. We arrived at the cabin around noon, had some lunch, then went for a sweet hike. Saturday it was a 5 mile trail run, followed by a really good dinner with some 2 buck chuck Shiraz, and watched Christmas Vacation around the fireplace on the 13" tv...(almost as sweet as my big screen in an old school sort of way). Sunday morning we woke up bright and early and drove to Lambeau Field. Check out the Oakley up Nort' Plaid ....check out the hunter orange gloves(found in the dumpster same day I found the packer hat)

The best part of Lambeau is the smell of the brats when you get out of the car for the first time. The cheeseheads, dudes w/ no shirts, and the bra truck is pretty sweet too. I bought 4 tickets from Paul Weaver and sold 2 to Brian Schwaller and his girlfriend Angie. Andrea's dad and I had the other two tickets. It was a blast and the Packers won!!! Favre broke Marino's all time completion record! History was made and we were there.

My new effort to save the world is commuting to work...my motivation is a new guy at work...pictures of the commuter bike to come soon.
