Statistically Insignificant



Sporting the SPF 5000 for the blazing high altitude sun.



Cody Peterson waits and watches as the final minutes wind down and the tension builds.

Words of wisdom from my Uncle Chrispy, "Being a baseball fan, I like to do the math:

24 hours = 1440 minutes
4 minutes divided by 1440 minutes = .00278

In other words, the difference between Trek/VW and Tamarack at Winter Park is statistically insignificant!

Don't question Moab. I think this bodes well for you at Moab. If you're team can perform as well as you did at Winter Park, then you're easily within a statistically insignificant striking range to take the top stair of the podium!

I say go for it!".

I could not pass up the opportunity to share this quote. My Uncle Chrispy has such an incredible perspective on life and his glass is always half full!

Guess what, I am still cleaning up after this weekends mayhem.

Dude,
I agree with Uncle Chrispy (sp?). Go after Moab and go BIG! We will be hooting and hollering for you guys and gals the whole time. 3D/Tamarack is a VERY talented team and y'all were 0.00278 away! Recover and then go get it done!

Nick -

A while back, on a REAL bad day at work, I was asked by my boss if my glass was half full or half empty. I looked him square in the eye and said, "That depends - are we pouring, or are we drinking?"

Nick, I raise my half full glass to you and your team. (Needless to say, today, I'm drinking!)

24 Hours of Moab is a good kick in the junk.

Attempted it last year. I got sick while out there. Did 3 laps. Drove back to Iowa. *sigh*

Looking to get back and get revenge.

Maybe see you in Moab yo!
