Where the Hell Have I Been?

Actually, I’ve been right here…

And I highly recommend it. With no real vacation for more than two years I was starting to get pretty edgy. So we hopped down to Aruba and after about five days I was ready to get back to work. I realized that I just can’t sit under a cabana all day and have drinks served to me. I was almost completely disconnected as the wifi access stopped about two rooms away from us. I cleaned up on roulette the last day we were there too. But other than that it’s great to be home. I knocked out about 30 miles on the bike this morning and I’ve put in about a full seven hours of work so far today.

If you’ve never been to Aruba, there’s two ways to really get a good “taste” of the island. One is on a TomCar from Green Zebra Adventures. The other is on the back of this guy, Jesse James. There are about 35 horses at Rancho Notorious and if you get the chance, take half a day and check them out. If you like getting your ass kicked in general, take the “galloping allowed” tour. We timed heading down there just right as the off season is just beginning. We were the only ones there for the Tom Cars as well as the horse back rides. Perfect timing because we didn’t have to wait for anybody to catch up. Also “somebody” also wrecked our Tom Car forcing me to have to drive on in a different one without a governor. But our guide didn’t tell me that and left it to me to discover. So… Tom Cars WILL drift!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to work. Anybody up for starting BarCamp Aruba?
