Guest Blog by Author Gard Skinner

First let me say thanks to Angela for asking me to guest-preach in here. It’s a cool site and I love Colorado. We lived in Summit County for a dozen years, both my kids were born in Vail, and the Broncos will always be my team.

OK, so, I wrote Game Slaves. I used to write for The Denver Post, Powder Magazine, Bike, and a bunch of others. I was even a ski and mountain bike tip guy on the front range ABC TV stations.
