Whew, that was almost too long to go without an update!!
Man its' been a busy few weeks! We've been dividing our time between our regular full-time jobs, MSF certification, drone practice (AWESOME!!) and replacing one of our vehicles that hasn't been behaving very well. Oh, and hosting D&D weekends with our family and friends and trying to restore order to our yard and garage after a long cold winter.
I say after, but there was a sprinkling of snow in the valley today and more than that in the mountains. Ridiculous. It rained almost every day of Spring Break. I'm sure they were partying in Miami Beach and Cabo, but here in Utah. Spring Break was just another nasty, rainy, windy week of dreary.
Despite frigid temperatures and wet weather, Carrie and I did COMPLETE OUR MSF CERTIFICATION!!
Yes, as of last Sunday we are official MSF RiderCoaches. We'll be teaching with our local program, Utah Rider Education, which on top of being the premier MSF sanctioned program in Utah is also woman owned and operated. We're really proud to be working for them. Also, one of our coaches happens to be a state MSF chief coach (they're called something different now, can't recall at the moment) and was literally the FIRST MSF representative in the state. His font of wisdom is only surpassed by his font of sarcasm.
And if that weren't enough, one of the other coaches is one half of WheelNerds
, an awesome motorcycle podcast with a national footprint. We're just a little star-struck!! We're planning to write an article about our experiences going through the certification, so stay tuned for that. It was eye-opening, and you never realize how much you DON'T know. I've you've taken an MSF course, post and tell us what you thought or remember. Did you take some follow-up classes? And if you haven't, why not?
One more thing to watch for! Here in our office is a brand-new pair of Cardo 4+ "Duo" headsets, which we'll be reviewing over the next few weeks. We haven't had a headset to review since the SCS-S1
back in the Spring of 2017, so we're really excited to be taking some new ones out for a spin. What do you look for in a communicator? And if you don't use one, what would they have to offer to change your mind?
Oh. And I've lost about 15 pounds in the last six weeks. But let's not make a big deal about that, in case the magic wears off.
So anyway, that's the update! More to come soon, stay tuned!
