In what is becoming an annual right of autumn I drove over to Caldwell Sport to pick up some team skis with new grinds for the upcoming season. I always feel like I am in a candy store over there and Amy and Zach always have great tips and stories to share. I even purchased Zach's custom Red Creek gold brush! The highlight, however, was seeing John Caldwell, the grandfather of American nordic skiing. He popped in for a cup of coffee and we had a nice talk. Impressive what the extended Caldwell family continues to do for American skiing. Bring on the snow, or our at the least our newly solar powered snow guns!
