Warm weather blues
 
Well, I think this is pretty much it for where I live unless I travel. Going to be in the 50-60F's for a week. Feel like going to CO and chase the white stuff but its too costly. Maybe start taking up skateboarding?:sad:
Went to the park on Saturday cuz the snow had started gone shit. Now I got no time to practice more. Arrrrrrggggghhhh.:angry:

I hear ya...Snow Creek ended on Sunday. I'm going to miss my mid week sneak to Snow Creek to ride the park all by myself :)

Tip to go to CO on a budget.
#1) Super 8 motel in Georgetown is around $65 per night
#2) Fill up at Shell just after you cross into CO...just 10 gallons though...get the 2 for 1 lift ticket deal.
#3) Fill up at another shell before Denver to get a second 2 for 1 lift ticket deal.
#4) Use 2 for 1 tickets at Loveland for 1/2 price lift tickets.
#5) Bring a friend to split the rest of the costs.

If you drive a car with good gas mileage, you can make the trip for around $120 on gas, $65 in lift tickets for 2 days, (1) night in a hotel and pack food from a grocery store $50. You should be able to get 2 days boarding for $250 or less...just pretend I'm the little red dude on your left shoulder with the pitch fork! :laugh:

I'm losing my shit here. Teaching on Saturday was brutally hot, and it's only going to get worse from here. Nobody ever said wearing a winter coat in +16*C weather would be fun. =(

I've thought about it but given my current work status I need to stick around for a bit.
