It has been a few weeks since we disabled the Comments feature on this Blog. It was something we didn't want to do because we enjoyed the interaction with all of you.
Why did we turn it off then?
Well, we saw an increasing amount of all of the following, none of which are the intent of our Blog:
Promotion of our competitors' products
Why are we turning it on again now?
We've made a few changes that we think will improve the function of the Amigos Blog.
First off, we have disabled Anonymous commenting. You will need a Google/Blogger identity to post. If you have an identity from another blogger type, try it first before you create a new one. Often, they will work. Not allowing Anonymous commenting will improve the community aspect of this Blog. We assume that you'd like to know who said what just as much as we do.
Secondly, we've boosted our number of administrators. When we see a comment that we feel is offensive or against the spirit of the Amigos Blog we will delete it. We allow you to post your comments directly to the Blog without prior approval because we feel this facilitates better interaction. In the future, if needed, we will have to move to prior approval before posting comments. We don't want to go there if we can help it though.
As a visitor or participant to the Amigos Blog, please bear with us if you see an inappropriate comment. We ask that you please ignore it and we will remove it as soon as possible.
Enough of the serious talk though! Let's talk about the Arrowhead Ultra 135.
Two of us from Salsa are entered in this year's event. 'New guy Tim' and I will be taking on the Arrowhead snowmachine trail this coming February. We'll do a formal introduction of Tim next week when his three-week hazing period is over.
It will be my third time participating and Tim's first and we are both busily preparing. One of the things I like most about the event is that you don't just have to physically train for it. There is also both mental and gear preparation. The nice thing is that you can often do a lot of the necessary thinking while you are training.
With that I'll pose a question to this audience. If you have experience using vapor barrier clothing (particularly while taking part in active sports) I'd love to hear how it worked out for you.
If vapor barrier clothing is something you've never heard of, you may enjoy checking out these websites.
Enjoy your weekend.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
