Winter has come to Salzburg (since the beginning of november …), the christmas backery has openend and we just enjoy the time as you can see in several photos …
After a long silence at our site (due to technical problems with the gallery) let me introduce you to >> my new Canyon Torque 8.0!!!
I had plenty perfect rides at the Gaisberg, the superb bikepark in Wagrain/Austria – and on some of the Gardasee-trails … especially I was happy to go for a testride on the 601 (hey, it was pure fun).
OK, time for some photos …
Shea Phillips has read and reviewed “Adding AJAX” from OReilly he received via VIJUG. Sounds like a good book. Read his review on his blog.
Wow. After a month away from radio, tv, internet and other distractions in Costa Rica, we are back at home in cold and wet Victoria.
I had a few thousand blog posts in my google reader to catch up on and a well over a thousand emails, not to mention mundane stuff like washing clothes. All that is under control again. Now I just gotta take care of the photos from the trip and our non-functioning gallery on the site. Anyway. It was fun to listen to a couple of JavaPosse, GoogleDeveloper and lugradio podcast episodes in a row. Some really cool things like the release of NetBeans 6, SoyLatte and JBoss Seam 2.0 happened, while I was offline so there are definitely things to catch up to. Good thing we have a hackday coming up at work this Friday. I also have to embark on organising some more upcoming VIJUG events… it never gets boring for me.
After a long time Babsi and I visited the Zoo of Hellbrunn again. I really like the zoo and the beautiful animals there. Especially the Firefox and the Alpakas were amazing. Just take a look on your own …
Finally I encoded a short video from the canadian mountainbiking for you. It’s raw footage of a balancing line at Broom Hill and my first northshore style drop that ended with buying a new Torque 8.0 …. Alright enjoy the movie and wait for the end !!! (3.8mb, wmv)
Canada is a beautiful outdoor playground and this time we were really into seakayaking. We stayed for six days at the Broken Group islands with all the luggage (camping, water and food) in our two boats … and because we didn’t get enough we went for another 2 day paddle to Sidney Spit. Ok – photo time !!!
Oh, Canada is already over and I really miss the boys … they are just great! But look for yourself – I got some photos of Manfred, Yen, Lukas and Nikolas and in addition some shots from different daytrips – have a look!
Man – I’m stoked! Today Manfred and I drove to Duncan/Mt. Tzouhalem for another mountain biking fun. After the ascent we found our first obstacles but then near the top it happend. There is a perfect obstacle with a drop around chest height and thanks to Manfreds Stinky I dared to drop it on the 3rd attempt. After that I was keen to do more drops and we found some more as you can see on the photos and tomorrow I go to Vancouver on the Northshore for another bike and drop session … ride on!
Wow – it feels good to play with Lukas, my little nephew or to go biking with my big brother Manfred. Not to forget the time I spend with Nikolas or Yen. Allright, no more words just some photos from the poolsession and from mountainbiking
