Howdy from Salt Lake City! I got here yesterday and met the Ergon crew.
I have to say, I was expecting to meet some really fun, cool guys, but my expectations were far surpassed and I couldn’t be having more fun! 🙂 It’s like being on vacation.
We worked on getting the booth set up for Outdoor Retailer at the convention center. The German technology behind the booth design is really impressive. The internals of the booth frame is made of super light Aluminum (I think it’s Al anyway) and the structural engineering is super cool.
Frame…complete booth view coming tomorrow
We have been eating good food. ESSEN. Don’t worry, we shared this plate, it wasn’t all mine. 😉
Martin isn’t so sure about crazy Americans. 😉 Particularly Looney ones.
Today we started at the Open Air demo at Snowbasin. It’s by a lake and there are all kinds of water sports being displayed there. We had a lot of interest in the Outdoor packs, especially from ski patrollers. People were also asking me questions about the grips that I hold so near and dear to my heart.
Hi Sonya – are you going to the Olympics?
Yes, I am the team captain for grinding coffee beans into an espresso grind with your knuckles. Pounding your fists in creative fury. J/k 🙂 No, I wish I going to the Olympics. Maybe someday….
Ich bin nicht schnell auf meinem Fahrrad, Ich trinke zu viel Bier.
Actually Sonya I understand that they are looking to bring the ‘coffee grinding event’ to the 2012 games in London (my home town)…I’ll see ya there!
