What Happened?

I’ll start this out with an apology. I’ve been derelict in writing this blog for about 5 months now. In fact I’ve put it totally on the back burner since Cheyenne Frontier Days. I’m not sure what happened, other than work has been incredibly busy and my time to update things has gotten small.  Taking up backpacking became a passion of mine this summer and that led to less time for writing too.

So, what have I been up to? I’ve added a few more breweries to the brew log. From Eagle Colorado to Rapid City, SD I’ve been hitting sports throughout the west and drinking a lot of great beer.

The smoker has been on high all summer long. I smoked a couple of Cornish game hens last weekend, I’ve smoked jerky, ribs, chicken and pork. I enjoy the smoker more than the grill in a lot of cases.

I took up backpacking and enjoyed the wonders of freeze dried meals at 10,000 feet overlooking alpine lakes and staring up at more stars than you can count.

I do feel its time to get back on the blog band wagon. Dry January is going to happen again and we will chronicle the trials and tribulations that come with that. I’ve got a lot of photos and stories from the summer. I want to redesign the blog and make a few changes to the look and feel and there is a new name in the works as well, so stay tuned over the next few weeks as we get this rolling again.
