It Seems Boise is Doing Just Fine Without Me.

So I'm in Boise for the first time since April. To my surprise, the town appears to be running perfectly smoothly, despite my absence. Here are some of the developments:

--The velodrome is starting to take shape. I rode by today, and was happy to see progress. There were several large mounds of dirt that resemble banked turns, several large earthmoving machines that resemble iron dinosaurs stationed around the mounds' perimeter, and several large men who resemble construction workers all standing around looking at something.

--Sustainabuilt appears to be thriving. I had coffee with my old boss this morning, and he tells me things are going well. He says their last cabinet job went smoothly the whole way through -- no major hangups all the way from design to installation. Hopefully this increased efficiency isn't entirely due to my absence from the shop. Sustainabuilt had a booth at the "Idaho Green Expo" that happened in May, and apparently forged some solid new connections and brought a lot of attention to the business. Congrats Sustainabuilt! (There was even talk of hiring me again if I return to Boise in the fall -- an attractive idea considering how hard it was to find a job the last time I looked.)

You aren't by chance a raptor biologist, are you?
