December in Phoenix, AZ

 Picture taken by Scott Morris, see his blog for more great pictures.

November was all about getting caught up from the year of traveling, taking care of all RV repairs and working on 2011 sponsorship. I was supposed to be in Tucson and ready to train beginning Dec 1st, but the RV repairs took seven weeks instead of the originally scheduled three... It turns out Phoenix is not a bad place to train! I mixed in fun rides with get-the-mind-back-to-training type rides.

Kentucky Camp, another Arizona Endurance Series event

Some Kentucky Camp finishers. The coolest thing about these events is that everyone hangs out waiting for all the riders/racers to come in. There is usually a campfire to grill on and people camp out.

Fun night ride with the Phoenix Meet Up group.  Thanks Amy!

 Removing the fridge and it's coils.

 New cooling system.

Yes, a fridge that works! Thanks to Andy and Allison (Durango) and Todd's mom Barbara (New Mexico) for storing (and saving) my frozen green chile along the way, and to Todd's step-Dad Chris for bringing it down to Phoenix when I had a working fridge.  Only people from NM will understand the chile obsession.

My RV repair guys became fans of Power Bar Trail Mix bars. It seems like no one knows about these; they are my favorite.
