Hello all,
After almost two weeks banging around NH, VT, ME, and RI I am back on the road. I arrived in Finland last night and right now I am sitting on a tiny (almost too small for two cars to pass each other) road in front of a red house that seems to be broadcasting a decent unlocked internet connection. So at this moment as I sit in a borrowed car I have a stolen connection to the world. It is nice to be back on the road. I was getting a little bit of cabin fever in the east without much skiing. I did ski one day at Sunday River, but skiing in the east in early November is highly mediocre. Considering the weather and time of year it is impressive how much is open. It is not quite the rock hard groomers I was really hoping for. However, it was really nice to run into some familiar faces. I ran into Mark Godomsky, Dana Bullen, Austin Stonebreaker, George Manter, and the bulk of the Bates ski team.

Later today, I am meeting up with some Finnish skiers and going to Levi since it has the best snow in this area. We will free ski the next two days and watch the World Cup women's and men's slalom races and then start a training block on the race hill when it is finished. Hopefully that will work out well.

I am flying solo since Dane pulled out of this trip a few days ago due to his knee. He decided he would be better off training in Colorado close to Vail and friendly knee surgeons. I can't blame him for pulling the pug.

Hope all is well, w
