Wow, I've been away for a week and return to a very exciting Tour de France! Nice to see some new names in the mix this year.
I have a few items to share with my Hour Lounge friends and only a short commercial break before the race begins again...
My 25 year old daughter asked to do a backpacking trip this year so we were away four days in the mountains. I am very proud of her. She managed to cover 53 kms over four mountain passes with almost 2 km of vertical gain and a 20 km march on the final day! And this is a girl without any ligaments in one knee from a soccer injury. Her reward was spectacular scenery and near-total solitude. Now we're planning the Inca Trail in Peru.
Also, Vacheron Constantin was unknowingly featured in the most recent issue of the Canadian Alpine Gazette. A short story and cover photo of my Aconcagua trip features the summit picture I shared with the HL earlier this year. You may remember I was grinning and sticking my arm out to show off the Overseas chronometer. Understandably, there was no mention of the watch!
Oops...commercial break is over so I'm back to watch the cycling
