|Lots of snow everywhere but on the road. And, yes, that very light cloud cover is our definition of a bright sunny day here in New York....|
Six hours later, we pulled into the parking lot at 47 Maple Street.
|Being Prez has its benefits!|
Branding is everything. Even the door into our office hasn't escaped it!
The first office you see when you walk in is that of our CEO, Liz Robert. That beauty of a bike is her new Fast Woman -- a titanium version designed by me and specially built for us by Lynskey Performance. (Gotta love anyone who works out of a glass office in full sight of the front door. No hiding from or by this woman!)
|It's all about the bike.|
|This is the view from JDK's "roof" conference room.|
|No time to enjoy the view. We have work to do. That's Liz at the head of the table. Next to her is Michael Jager, one of the brainiest brand guys you'd ever want to meet.|
That's how our whirlwind tour went -- a series of meetings. Time flies when you're with neat people and you can see the fruits of your labor. But when evening comes and the building empties out, it's time to relax with friends at one of Burlington's great eateries. There are so many, it's tough to choose one. Sigh -- I wish we had that problem where I live!
|No explanation necessary.|
On the third day, we headed home, but not before a stop at our warehouse which is a few miles away from HQ. This is where the rubber hits the road. Your orders are filled here by people who want to make sure you're a happy customer. Theirs is a tough life and they do an amazing job for us.
|I'll take the UPS orders; you take the USPS orders!|
|Slow going, but beautiful nonetheless.|
