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?
Went to the park on Saturday cuz the snow had started gone shit. Now I got no time to practice more. Arrrrrrggggghhhh.

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!

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.
