    Default Where will you be for Christmas/New Years?

    Me and chill fly to Denver on the 23rd. We'll head into the mountains after Christmas and spend the week skiing with family at our regular family spot Winter Park-Mary Jane. Champ is driving up. We'll be shredding the gnar. No Pain, No Jane.

    Christmas = Moms, after a week long tour of everywhere

    New Years = courtside for the Thunder/Hawks in OKC

    Winter Park is awesome!

    I'm going to Keystone/Breckenridge on Jan. 3rd for a few days. Can't wait, it's been too long since I've been skiing.

    As for Xmas, I'll just be in that TX...

    I'm off all next week.

    I'll probably head to Victoria that Thursday, the 23rd to hang with the familia.

    I'm looking forward to sleeping late all of next week!

    We used to take the kids up to Winter Park/Frazier each winter. We all really enjoyed it. When the kids married and moved off, the wife and I quit going. A couple of years back we all went back as a family again. A fun time was had by all. Part of the thrill of the trip was gone now that they've paved the highway going up the mountain. Going to Winter Park on a dirt road was....interesting to say the least. One piece of advice for anyone going to Colorado during the winter, don't drive the Phantom Canyon Road, especially not at night, and especially not if there is deep snow and ice. Fifty miles and it took 5 1/2 hours. Talk about "white knuckles." One lane with a solid rock wall on one side and a sheer dropoff on the other side. In 50 miles we encountered 3 other vehicles, ALL had Texas plates. Makes one wonder about those people from Texas.

    I have taken the week between Christmas and New Years off for many years. I suppose many people do that. We always spend Christmas at our house and let the kids come to see us whenever they can fit us in. The day after Christmas however...........it's off to Vegas for mom and pops. Nothing like Vegas at New Years.

    We will be here. Parents are here, 8 miles away. Coming in: older sister and her husband and two sons on the 24th. Younger brother and his wife on the 22nd. They will all stay at moms. So we will have mom and dad, three children, 2 son-in-laws, 1 daughter-in-law, and a total of 4 grandsons (ages, 21,21,19,15). I love every other year when we are all together for Christmas. My brother's birthday is the 26th so we will have some of his friends over for a party that night.

    They all clear out on the 28th.

    For NYE I think we are having our high school senior bible study class over for a party. If not we will have a nice dinner and stay in watching movies.

    I'll be around. My post count additions will be dependent upon how busy we are at work. Someday the flu season will hit and I'll be busy.

    my family on eve and C day, then work then final week end deer hunting/ny eve. likely lots of fireworks if there's no burn ban(which i bet there is).
    the harder i work, the luckier i get to pay more taxes so someone unluckier than me doesn't have to work so hard
    No one needs luck or even best wishes when all are pulling in the same direction

    Mary Jane is an awesome run. I'll never forget my first run down Outhouse. Great place.

    I'll be at Disney with the entire extended family.

    Merry Christmas

    Spring Break Senior Year Going over Loveland to Winterpark. Got almost two feet of snow that night in a blizzard. Pass Closed about an hour after we got over. Drove my stick shift Ford Ranger. I had Sprained my ankle that day couldn't depress the clutch. My College buddy had a broken right hand in a cast could not shift. He drove with one hand and told me (riding in the passenger seat when to shift. Slept that night with my foot elevated to take down swelling. Woke up next morning put foot in ski boot first thing and me and my buddy and a few other friends skied the entire next day on an all but empty mountain, as the pass was closed, with two feet of fresh snow. Good times
