I cannot describe how much fun I had at the WBC this weekend. Really a life changing event. Scott Conary says he is going to help me get certified so I can taste espresso drinks until I barf! I can't wait! Being a judge, even at the regional level, would allow me the excuse of going to Portland. The wifey would buy it "hook, line and sinker" and she might would even give me access to the penny jar!

If y'alls need bikes for the official Bike Tour, info should be going up soon on the website.

Otherwise, check out for bike rentals. They're sponsoring the official bike tour, and are awesome people!
