Spent the weekend in Portage, went to Cascade and Devil's Head. Had some fun, got me hyped so I'm looking forward to this weekend even more now.

Won't get there til late(ish) Friday, so won't be on the hill til Saturday. My son may or may not have to go somewhere Sunday for Boy Scouts, so... we may board Saturday only, or may go Sunday as well depending on what ends up being the case. Have to play that by ear.

Who are we using as the main point of contact for this? Slyder knows how to get a hold of me but if someone else is the POC, let me know and I'll PM you my cell number.

If no one is POC, I'm happy to be, but that doesn't mean I'm going to be able to set things up (I'm from Milwaukee -- don't know Wausau and haven't been to GP enough to have great knowledge of the mountain), it just means I'm willing to get info from person to person as we figure things out...

Looking forward to this trip... it should be pretty killer.

Few points I'll throw out there.
  • I won't be there till 8ish Friday night we may try to go to Wausau Mine Co for pizza but will make that decision when we get there
  • Planning on making 1st chair Saturday and will be early Sunday but not sure we'll be up in time for 1st chair after a killer day riding Saturday :')
  • I will park by Comet, looking at the resort far right side of the parking lot. I'll be in the big black Suburban
  • POC, Point of Contact- you can use me but as many of you know for now I can only receive texts I can't send them. My new phone will be here in time for the trip.
  • I like the idea of grilling out with Derp for lunch. Derp might it be a good idea to buy all the food and all that want to partake can just pay you directly???? I need to run this by the 4 kids with me but "I" like the idea !! Otherwise I can just run to Walmart or bring food to grill with us. Doesn't matter to me....
  • Derp I will take you up on vids from the Contour, I have nothing of me riding this year. I might be able to get a GoPro 3 if I can I will bring that as well. Would be awesome to get some vids of me finally.
I think that is everything, if anyone wants to add or has questions post away. This week is just dragging, I think I"m gonna head down stairs and mess with my board that will help pass the time

Since I'm the local here, feel free to use me as the POC. I'll be riding Friday night and there all day/night Saturday & Sunday.

The Comet lift (6 person high speed) is at the front of the parking lot on the right hand side. There is a large picnic table there. I suggest we all park there are a good meeting point. I'll be there early on Saturday, look for a blue Monte Carlo.

I'll have trail maps for everyone and will also be bringing a small LP grill. Cheaper and better than the chalet. I'll stop at the grocery store on Saturday morning before heading to the hill to pick up some burgers, brats, dogs, and the fixings.

I have the Contour charged and 20GB worth of space freed up for videos.

I'll bring my GoPro, too. It uses standard SDCards, so if anyone wants specific video of something, feel free to bring a card, we can just toss it in to record, then you can take the card home with you.

Guys don't hold up any of your plans for us, we have a long drive and hope to be there around noonish depending on travel and stops. Not sure about lunch either since we may end up grabbing something before we get there and not sure when we plan on dinner, usually after we leave. I'll just give you guys a call when we are on the hill and see where you all are at since you will guys will already have a couple hours in before we even arrive. 2 1/2 days left, can't wait!!

Boards are waxed and fixed. Oldest boy had 2 broken straps, one I knew and had a part ordered for the other I found while I was replacing broken part. Thank goodness I had a spare one already.

Mental list of gear to pack and will be packing tomorrow night.

Hurricane, we will probably be finishing lunch when you get there and we can all hit the hill if you like.
How late are you guys staying on Sunday?? I know you mentioned hitting Devils Head or Cascade, not sure if that is still your game plan.

I can get texts now and should be getting my new phone tomorrow.

I wish I was meeting up with you guys this weekend. I had a blast at GP! I'm going to Devils Head tomorrow night for $16 tickets. I crashed hard off a rail last week at Tyrol, I'm surprised I'm feeling as good as I do right now.

Waxed and brushed my baby last night too.

Grill loaded in trunk with plates, utensils, stuff like that.

Grocery list on my phone.

Another 2" fell here last night. Nothing substantial is in the weekend forecast, but chances for a dusting here and there. Temps in the 25-35 range with light winds. Great base, glades are open, and they are still working to finish Sugar Maple. Bagjump starting to get setup this evening.

I think everyone has my number so we should be pretty much set. Zole you have my number in case something changes and you can make it.

Working bottom of Comet tonight and riding Friday night. See everyone soon!

We will be staying until closed on Sunday then grabbing a bite to eat and heading to dh for their room and lift special for $65. That will cut our drive time down on the way home Monday and give some recoup time in the hot tub Sunday night.
Like I said don't hold up any plans waiting on us. Never know about traffic or other delays that can come up. I'll call when we get there.
