Friends and Family

Last weekend was filled with friends, family, and glorious sunshine. My brother and two cousins, Gene and Brian, rolled in Wednesday evening and I had a great time showing them around the gorge. Thursday evening, some good ole boys from college rolled in: Travis Frank, Ben Denlinger, Meghan McGuire, Marc Hueber, and Morgan Rich. Travis, Marc, and Morgan traveled in a RV, which occupied the yard for the rest of the weekend (absolutely classic). Then to top it off, Friday evening my parents showed up. I had quite a busy house! Friday, Marc and I raced in a local downhill event, of which I hosted the after party. It was great to see Marc on a bike again. Saturday was filled with 12 hours of drinking, a 12 person pontoon boat on Summersville Lake, and deep water soloing. Having friends and family visit was a great revival for my soul, and it feels great to be back on the east coast!
