I'm not gonna lie... I don't think anybody is gonna feel bad for ya!
You made yourself a pretty sweet life!
Hmmm you make a good point.
Although after this trip that'll be it unless I can sneak down to New Zealand mid year. I've got a job in Zambia starting two days after this trip and I'll be a slave to the man for a while again. Booo.
I am 6hrs round trip too but I still go every weekend regardless. This season started too late already to miss anything. Where are you going in Tahoe?
Kirk RIder...rides Kirkwood..:-)
Personal record is 2.5 hours from the exit of Kirkwood resort to my exit in Pleasanton. And that's pushing it. 88 is clean from snow so without traffic (and cops) the drive is pretty quick.
I know! I got 6 days so far, of which one was "good" and still not REALLY GOOD..lol
we got spoiled here by some stellar seasons and lack of crowds before VAIL bought the place ( for 18 mil...nothing ) Now there's a lot more people complaining about the slow chairs... I hope they go back to Squaw soon.

I can make it from KB to San Ramon in under 3 hours, usually a little bit longer on the way back up, but not by much.
We haul ass when we can. But there is always horrible traffic. Friends can't leave work on Friday evening until they are done with work. ==> Bay Area rush hour. And if it's storming and there are chain controls ==> 80 is parking lot from Colfax to Truckee.
