Greetings from India!
03/25/19 at 08:32:41
 
Spent the entire weekend, ~24 hours flying to arrive in Mumbai India. I'm hopeful the weather improves in Utah upon my return, because I'm ready to ride!

Here, its 100F and ~40% humidity. They call this weather "smoke".. because it literally looks smokey outside.

Well I got to check out I-70 in route to Salina this past Saturday. Going back to the cabin from Price after the shoot came upon a avalanche in Huntington canyon and had to backtrack and take the long way around to get back to Mt. Pleasant.

That said, there is a lot of snow south of I-70 as far as I could see to the east. The shooters from Green River said the lower areas, IE where we've ridden in the past trips there, are very muddy.  Driving past Goose Berry you can see it will be months before the snow will be gone enough ride over the top. The whole Central Utah area has been hammered the last few week. I have never had as much snow at my cabin in the last twelve years I have owned it.

We will find somewhere to ride when you get back. The Swell looked pretty clear of snow when I went through Castledale, though I am sure it will be muddy.

Likely a little bit of both. Ready to jump. Average amount of sleep since last Friday: 5 hours total..

Trust me, you're not missing much. 19 hours in the air (one way) has zero glamour associated with it.

Back from India! To say my back side is sore from ~19 hours of sitting in airplane seats would be an understatement! So glad to be back in the land of steaks and bacon!  Grin

This world is truly getting smaller. Upon landing in India, I ran into a colleague (CIO of a large property management firm), and then upon my return, I ran into former colleagues in the Amsterdam airport!

Back home. Mission success. Was hot/humid, but +20 hours in the air really, really sucks. Glad to be back in the land of meat.
