Up at 4:30 to post before I pick up my Mom and head to the airport. It feels like before today I was on the portion of the roller coaster where the car is just ticking up the track. Starting today is the loop dee loop when the ride really begins. Mom and I fly to Minneapolis, MN at 7:05 to start a 4 day road trip to "find our roots" in Donaldson, MN. When we get back on Monday we drive straight to Davis, CA to meet up with Sarah and her Bike & Build team. I have no significant chunks of time left for any projects. It is all about family and packing now.

It is very exciting. And I reserve the right to scream at the top of my lungs.
