Adios NAB

NAB is the most exhausting thing I've done since I stopped going to the US Open. Last week I was skiing HARD in 15" of fresh powder, all day, hiking up at 8,000 feet, and after two days of that, I felt great. Today, after three days of NAB, I am completely wasted and I can barely move.

The zoo.

Is Jesper asleep?

One of the highlights of the trip was Eric H from PSSI Satellite Systems stopping by the HEGO booth. Eric is not only a very cool guy, he was the man responsible for putting together our satellite vLAN (ethernet via satellite) at the Tour of California Time Trial intermediate in Solvang, which worked like a champ right out of the box.

Another Sighting of the Rare Alpine Skunk

Snowbasin, UT, April 16 (three days before Snowbasin will close for the season). 15" of fresh. Those tracks are right smack in the middle of the Wildflower DH course. Notice the utter absence of any other tracks.

Apparently the Rare Alpine Skunk has a nose for untracked freshies.

Powder Mountain, UT, on April 17, was just as good.

You KNOW It's Early When.....

Having a house in Hawai'i does have its challenges. For takes at least 5 hours to fly anywhere. Eight hours to Dallas. And during the summer months, since Hawai'i does not observe Daylight Savings Time (one of the few examples of smart Hawai'ian government), the entire State is yet an additional hour behind the mainland.

So you grow accustomed to....

Arriving in Dallas so early, the Admirals Club isn't even open yet.

Concourse "D" at the largest, busiest airport in the world is so deserted that you could stage a full-scale US Gridiron game, with 19 of your closest friends (in full pads), and nobody would even notice.


But hey, at this hour there's no problem finding an open chair to await the opening of the Admirals Club.......
