Only 3-4 hundred meters, but hey, it is way different than lap swimming. The best way to spend an off day from training.

I watched my daughter all weekend, so I did not go to the Silver Mountain 3D shoot, and I did not check any of my 20+ trail cameras in the mountains. I did set-up a course at my cabin and shot with my dad on Sunday, we had to make some pretty steep angle shots, looks like my 3rd axis is dialed. This was my first Father's day, and I got to spend it with my dad and daughter, it was awesome. My dad is the real deal, and my best friend, pretty cool. Next week is a short week, Alicia and I will be camping and doing some scouting on the Westside of WA.
