Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Back in Denver

Raible Road Trip #11 was an excellent vacation. Our plan to drive through the night worked out splendidly. Not only did I make it to 7:30 a.m. (with the help of a bit of Red Bull), but I got to jam to my favorite tunes all night long. We left at 11 p.m. and I handed over the reigns to Julie just outside of Billings. She drove for the next 3 hours, and I took over again for the final 3. Total time: 14 hours.

We arrived at the cabin at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Actually, I should say we got stuck at the cabin at 1:00 because we made it all the way up the "bumpy road", but didn't make the last hill. 40 minutes later and at 40 miles an hour, I made it up the last hill. The next 3 days at the cabin were great. We took Cookie the Dog and she loved it as much as the kids did. The drive home over the last 2 days wasn't nearly as pleasant as the drive there, but listening to "Little Einstein's" on the DVD player is never as much fun as listening to your favorite tunes. ;-)

The Cabin - November 2006 Mimi and Baba

The next couple weeks will likely be hectic. This week I'll be writing AppFuse 2.0 documentation. Next week I'll be delivering a Spring + Hibernate class in Boise, Idaho with Country Bry and Scott from Virtuas. Then I'll be flying to The Spring Experience on Thursday for a weekend in paradise. Better yet, I'll be spending the following week in Florida on vacation. :-D

Matt, the pictures you posted from your cabin trip might have "busted" you. You mentioned in a previous post that you don't have internet access there and yet you have a pic of your dad sitting at a laptop with what looks like a phone or ethernet cable.

I'll see you in Florida for TSE. I'll buy the first beer!

You are correct that my dad did get on the internet while we were there. However, it's only dial-up and MacBook Pros don't have modems, so I never connected. ;-)

On the drive home (2 days), I did get on a couple times. Thanks to my EVDO Card and a power converter in the car, we had internet access the whole time. Unfortunately, I could only be on my laptop for 20 minutes before I'd get car sick.

TSE should be fun, but I still haven't had much success in securing beer for my BOF. Jay suggested just sneaking it in. ;-)
