Dinner on the road

Yummy dinner on the road. Roasted garlic bread, sliced turkey, Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese, and avocado.

I’ve been on the road now since last Thursday at the Ouray Ice Fest.  It was a whirlwind weekend of amazing ice climbing, fun mixed competitions featuring some of the best ice climbers in the world, interesting slideshows, connecting with new and old friends.  I will be posting more on the ice fest hopefully later this week, so don’t forget to check back to Icebella for that coverage.

I’m staying in Ouray this week to ice climb and work on Issue 3 of Vertical Woman.  Then next Monday it’s on to Salt Lake City for the Outdoor Retailer show.  Coverage for that event will also appear here.

This is my first stint on the road for work.  It’s fun to see so many old friends and make many new ones.  I love the town of Ouray, and I’m sure at the end of the week it will feel like home.  It’s more like a quaint little snowy Swiss village than a Colorado mining town.  It can also get exhausting being on the go all the time, not having a set work schedule, and having to work hard to carve out R&R time.  It’s important to really take of yourself so as to not get burned out – eat well, drink plenty of water, take vitamins (especially Vit C, Vit B, Folic Acid, and Fish Oil), get plenty of sleep and make sure to schedule some down time.  Also, fresh air and exercise are important, but can be hard to get with busy schedules.

The exciting aspect of travel has not worn off yet and hopefully it will continue strong all through the OR Show.  Tonight’s exciting dinner adventure was a little hotel room eating in – Roasted Garlic Artisan Bread, Cheddar Cheese, Sliced Turkey, and Avocado. Yum!!

  1. Seems like everyone had a blast at Ouray. Good luck on the road, and your food looks delish!

  2. On a random note, great minds must think alike because when I was climbing in Skaha (BC) I made myself almost the exact same sandwiches! Minus the turkey though because it was too hot to leave meat out all day 🙂
