We are staying, as we were last year, in the lovely home of some of Exergy's biggest supporters: John and Terri Ferro. Their house is large enough to accommodate all sixteen members of our roster (the staff stays elsewhere), and they themselves are tolerant enough to live right in the eye of the hurricane that is Team Exergy (in fact, if I didn't know any better, I'd say they kind of like it -- at least for one week per year).
For the next eight days, my life is downright plush. My responsibilities include: eat a lot of delicious food, spend a generous amount of time hanging out with my teammates (I'm sharing a room with Serghei Tvetcov, a man who deserves a whole post of his own), get a daily massage from our fantastic sougneurs, and last but not least, go clobber myself to pieces on my bike -- hopefully not literally.
Here are some pictures from my day:

|A hazy morning gave way to bright sun in the afternoon.|
|Matt can't decide which hat he wants...so he tries to take them all. Quinn watches, unimpressed.|
|Man? Myth? Legend? All of the above. Meet Serghei Tvetcov.|
