Banff & Kripalu

It had been a few years, but we finally made it to another showing of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. One of these years, we will actually get to Banff, but for now, we will have to settle for the traveling tour. We had a conflict with the Connecticut dates, so we went to Lenox, Massachusetts to see the show at the high school. The event was hosted by the Arcadian Shop for the 20th year in a row.

We saw some friends at the showing, which wasn’t unexpected, considering we are members of the Western Massachusetts Athletic Club, and do a lot of trail running in the Berkshires. All of the films were good, but this year, I was particular impressed with the mountain bike film, Strength In Numbers, produced by Anthill Films. My favorite part of the film was the segment about the Aptos, California “Post Office Jumps.” It is very cool.

Our kids really enjoyed the films, though it was a late night for them. We changed them into their pajamas at intermission, which was a good strategy. Prior to the show, we had dinner at Kripalu, which was fantastic. I hadn’t been there in a while, though Debbie spent a weekend their last month. She spent a month there more than a decade ago, and is a Kripalu Certified Yoga Teacher. I remember visiting her in 2000 when she got certified. It was a very different place back┬áthen. The yoga boom has led to the transformation of Kripalu in a serious way.

The cafeteria is as good as ever, and the vegan options are awesome. The place has a great vibe. I could have sat there all night sipping a cup of tea, but Banff was the main event. I can’t wait to get back.

Couldn't fit the whole church in the picture from where I was standing during today's early morning bike ride in #Bromont #Quebec Had a great customer visit, rode some hills, got to see the #VieuxVillage and learned a lot about robotics. The really little parts are important too. This is a collar made @horsteng from Inconel 600 on a #cnc Swiss #screwmachine We can make a lot of parts out of a 12 foot length of bar stock. #Aerospace #machining #cncmachining #instamachinist #manufacturing #madeintheusa #horstengineering Made it back in time for the @horsteng pre-Memorial Day Weekend cookout. The new van livery looks great. #horstengineering #manufacturing #precisionmachining #instamachinist #madeintheusa Great #washington view from the rooftop at the #donovanhouse My second #Apollo image of the week. This guy #jackswigert never made it to the #moon but he still made his mark on the world! Great #capitol @uscapitol tour with friends from the @ypowpo NEUS board after our meeting ended. #washington #ypo #colorado #uscapitol Went to a business meeting and surprisingly kicked it off with wheelchair relays and #basketball My team won 3-0 after 20 minutes of intensity. Saw things from a different perspective. Our "coach" was @1fastamp and this is her #paralympic gold from the Beijing 100m. Amazing story that resonates with me. @horsteng founder was an amputee. He would have been blown away by the advances in #prosthetics technology. She has awesome legs! @ypowpo #ypo #washington I love this technology! I never tire of seeing the #Apollo Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) "space suit." At the @neamuseum #newenglandairmuseum for the #Aerospace Component Manufacturers (ACM) annual meeting. #manufacturing @horsteng #horstengineering #madeintheusa #SoapstoneMountainTrailRace Sampler. The infamous sand pit. #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #notaroadrace
