I turned older the other day. It was a nice day...full of working with my boyfriend Otis, eating French desserts with friends, and even a surprise visitor. It turns out my birthDAY turned into a birthWEEKEND as I ran around the city with this kid....thanks for flying across the country. cute.

They don't seem to be anywhere I have checked so far. Brooklyn maybe? No. West Village? No. New York...you have a lot of exciting things. I just wish you would improve your carhartt-t-shirt-scruffy-face-ski-bum-bike-riding-boy ratio. As far as i can tell, they all moved to Montana, Utah, and Colorado.
I guess that is where they belong. That is also where I belong. But for now, I heart New York.
Anyway, this song has been stuck in my head for days. Just thought I would let it out. thanks woody.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Hope everyone is getting excited for the ski season.

i saw jay z at a yankees game the other day. that's true.
the actual and more interesting truth is i didn't know which person he was cause i don't actually know what he looks like. but he was there, and i was there, and people were pointing him out. who cares? nobody. but here is a sweet video to tribute the dude. it seems he really loves the yankees. they lost pretty bad that night.
the game was still fun though. i just kept wondering, "when in the heck do we get to sing that 'Sweet Caroline' song?"
*note to EVERYONE: do not ask this question at a yankees game.

When I got home from this trip, I was surprised how many people asked questions about the group dynamic. Most people couldn't believe nine adults could be together hour by hour for 16 days and not want to slug each other in the face. Well, I am here to tell you, this group was brought together by some sort of ultra positive energy mecca force or something. If I needed help with something I usually wouldn't even need to ask. Someone would notice and help before I could speak up. I felt supported in every direction. Every person played a role in pulling the group together. We all shared common values about the environment, we all laughed at each others dumb-as-ever jokes, we all wanted to be there. We wanted each other to succeed, we all wanted to have a positive experience. On the last day when we said goodbye with a big cheesy group hug, I'm pretty sure it was apparent we had helped each other accomplish our goal. I love those people. In sixteen days I never heard one person complain of distance, cold, or mechanical problems. Come to think of it, I don't remember anyone having any "problems". Sometimes something would happen that wasn't expected. We would just figure a way around it, go with the flow, or rather let the positive energy of the group lead us in the right direction. sounds weird I know, but it is true.
As for my favorite part of the trip, I'm not sure I have a good solid answer. Because I had never been to Alaska before, every single time I would come to the top of a hill, or round a corner, the next stretch was a surprise to me. I really loved the stretches of 80 to 100 miles on both sides of the triangle with no services. It was the real Alaskan wild. I loved biking along those long mountain ranges and wondering who had explored them before. The river valley out of Valdez, over Thompson pass, and into the wild, that is something I will never forget.
Anyway, I know this isn't really what you asked for. I started writing about Alaska and I just didn't really want to stop! Feel free to use whatever, or throw it all away. Hope you're having a great day up there. Oh and if you could email the article when your done that would be sweet. Thanks dude.
