I hear you there. I'm driving 12 hours for snowball. I know it'll be super busy, but whaddya do. We're coming up with 10 people and renting out a big place at Caribou.
Even if it's packed, we'll have fun. First chair every morning, at the very least.
If you want to be a chick, a dude, a tent, or a velociraptor be my guest, but if you choose the last one you bet your ass I will have a spaz-12 to your face.
