  • Sundance / Slamdance 2015 - Day 4

    Sundance / Slamdance 2015 - Day 4

    Leaving Park City early can be either depressing or relieving – or both simultaneously. It’s depressing because you could do it forever and relieving because there’s no way in hell a human being can do it forever. The one thing you learn is that you can’t do it all when you’re there – or really even about 5% of it. All you can do is be thankful for the discoveries you made, the people you met and the friendships or biz partnerships that have deepened. This trip was all that and more. And as I flew past the Central Cascades of Oregon on a clear day, I was definitely relieved to return to a place like Bend.

    Sundance / Slamdance 2015 - Day 3

    Park City is experienced in waves – especially when you’re on the cusp of 40. You just can’t do long lines and late nights twice in a row. With that said…Day #3 came after a great, relaxing day of kicking back exclusively at Slamdance. It was time to “get back out there”.
