Wild West Day

One of the things I’m missing today is Wild West Day at Red Gate. It’s not just because I don’t live anywhere near the office (they’re in Cambridge, UK, I’m in Denver, CO), but also because I have a vacation scheduled. Camping up near Fort Collins with family is on the agenda, and today should be a fun day of horseback riding for the girls and some biking for the boys.


That’s what I expect for our trip, but this was the reminder picture that came from Red Gate, for the company outing next week. They are having a day out event for employees, which sounds fun. I worked in a few companies that had outside events for employees, and those were also the days that really helped people bond together and enjoy their jobs a little more.

I miss those, and wish I had the chance to do one once in awhile. I might as my wife’s company has about 10 or 12 telecommuters in the Denver area and is looking to funding a day out somewhere.
