Asked the big boss about taking time off to race the Tour Divide. He said it was a lot of time at a busy time of year... isn't looking good for me. He said he would have to present the idea "upstairs." Damn ... I know I can meet my quota's and have Doug cover emergencies. Chance of there being a radiological dirty bomb in Vermont those 4 weeks are about as likely as me setting a new record for the Tour Divide. And if I did that I would only need 2 1/2 weeks off anyway! 22 years of working every deer season, every sugaring season, every winter spreading ban first week, every January thaw.. and don't forget the army worm invasion!
I guess I should start shopping around for another event.... suggestions?
