Ski Season Starts






This will be my second blog posting . . . this time with a skiing theme. We are getting psyched for a new year of bustin' the pow with first runs at Brundage somewhere around Jan 7. Idaho, and everywhere else in the west, has been getting pounded this week and it's shaping up to be a good snow year. Just to get into the mood, I'm attaching a link to some pics from last year's epic ski season.

During our annual "Boy's Trip" in Utah we had four of the best skiing days of my life. Each day was a minimum of 15" to 18" new with one day of 40+ inches of new champagne powder. You truly had to ski with your mouth closed as the snow was overhead. The snow was so deep that day we never stopped long enough to take a picture.














Bumper Sticker seen in Brundage parking lot: "Just because I slept with you last night doesn't mean I have to ski with you today".

First Post







This is my initial blog posting and I have no idea what I'm doing nor do I understand why anyone would care to view my blog. Let's see how it all shakes out.

Random Thoughts:

How about those Oklahoma Sooners!! It certainly must suck today if you are a Texas fan. I don't claim to understand anything about how the BCS makes their computer work but this time it fell the right way. Now they just have to beat Florida to make it all complete.

Kim and I recently returned from a week sailing in the British Virgin Islands with my brother Denny and his wife Jeanne along with their friends Mike and Magdna from Atlanta. Mike has a beautiful 52' sailboat "Vandalay" based in Tortolla and we had a wonderful time with them. Wonderful other than being nailed by a Cat 3 hurricane named Omar. I'll try and attach a few pics of that adventure. Try this link for more pics of the BVI's

Enough for my first post. Let's see how this looks after being posted.
