Lots of love and luck to the old man of the mountain and to Tasha too. I'm keeping Granddad posted but trying to tell him how this messageboard system works is a real challenge; maybe you can do a demo for him on your laptop sometime.

Dan Roycroft Thank you to everyone for the encouragements. It has truly been an amazing experience so far and Tasha and I really look forward to the Worlds beginning this week. I am in Asiago right now, just having competed in my first World Cup. Gord Jewett and myself competed in the sprint relay. It was a good leaning experience although I wish that I had a bit more energy towards the end. We finished 12th in sprint finish with the Americans. Today we watch Beckie, Sara, Chris, and George compete in the 5/10km classic. After that we return to Val di Fiemme for Worlds. (Posted from Asiago, Italy at 12:34:45 AM EST)
