169 photos from the 2005 Supernationals taken on 1/30/2005. I’m getting better with the camera, increased the exposure a bit too much so some of these are a little blurry. Overall I feel they came out better than the photos I took at the 2004 Supernationals. These photos are available at flickr (2005 Supernationals set) or watch the slideshow below.

West Mesa Skeleton Is Not a Chupacabra

This thing has been making news around here. The chupacabra is a little gargoyle type creature that exists in Latin American folklore, it was even on a episode of the X-Files.

Someone found a skeleton out on the west mesa that looks weird and since it’s just the bones it must be a chupacabra, turns out it’s a “ocean skate“. You got to admit, with it’s face all smashed down and all, it looks pretty freaky. Its even stranger that it ended up out in the middle of the desert but people dump all kinds of crap out there including couches, car bodies, human bodies, hot water tanks and now sea creatures.

Local Channels Out

For subscribers of DirecTV in the Albuquerque area (and perhaps elsewhere) local channels are out. Would it be too much to ask to put their outage information on their website? I had to call the 1800 number and all it said were the locals were out, no status or anything.

Actually they have been pretty reliable, this is the first real outage I can think of them ever having. Still, I pay them a lot of money every month so there should be no outages. At the very least the could give me more info on when it’s coming back.

Best Skiing In A Century

Wondering why I’m skiing so much? Because it’s the best it’s ever been.

Ski New Mexico is calling this year’s ski season the best the state has experienced in a century. A week of snow in New Mexico’s mountains, which reached totals of almost four feet in some areas, has produced outstanding conditions at all of the state’s winter resorts, said the association.
