Heading out to Utah this evening for a long weekend at mom’s place. sprite is coming along, too.

The trip will be just long enough to do things I want to do – go mountain biking, go to the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, see old friends, possibly volunteer for Pete Ashdown, do a bit of work on mom’s house – without staying so long that I’ll be driven up the wall with mom’s neuroses or the general state of the Utah house, which is not for the feint of heart.

And I’ll return with a little bit of time away from DC…. just in time for the primary election on Tuesday.
