Man. That sucks. I'm kind of committed to go now. Maybe I'll just stay around summit then. Hopefully conditions will be a little better.

I was running a small confections company that I started about 6 years ago, but when the kitchen I was renting ran into some legal & monetary issues & everyone renting in there got screwed when the locks were changed out of nowhere & no one provided new keys. I've been doing business development & sales with some start-ups & most recently worked in a law firm until I got a sweet ass holiday bonus that involved being laid off due to a lack of available work. Been sending out resumes for Sales, Management & Business Development ever since, but have had a lot of companies say they're seriously considering me - read: giving me the runaround.

At this point, I'm about to write up a BS resume (so I don't get instantly denied an interview because I'm overqualified) & get a bullshit job for shit pay somewhere. Sorry for the sob story, haha

Yeah, I figured it's likely to be slushy Sunday when I go up, but slush is better than dirt. I'm hitting Summit since I'm not skilled enough for any real fun in the park

it's all good. I was just wondering if you did tv/film stuff too. I always assume everyone in LA does. Because if you didn't theres no reason to live here. Well, it's not that bad but eh....


I rode my bike out near Mt Baldy today. It's a sad sight, there is almost no snow up there at all.

Haha, yeah, it seems like most everyone does. I used to quite a bit of lighting & audio work, but haven't done anything in that industry in a good 5 or 6 years, maybe more. I've been toying with the idea of getting out of LA, but I really can't think of another place to live that isn't crazy expensive to move to & live in - where I can be less than 30 minutes from the ocean & within 2-3hrs of snow worth riding on.

Too bad Baldy got shit for snow this season, cuz I really wanted to try to hit it after a storm, but I ended up at Summit after the last big storm we had

well, my car died today. Looking like I might not make it to hood. Or...I might totally dirtbag it and take a bus or some shit.


Im not working for three months so I need to find a new car by then.

Considering Sunday is their last day of being open this season & their annual Easter egg hunt, it's probably gonna be busy. As far as the snow, probably slushy all day & thinning out. It's typically a little warmer at High than Bear/Summit & I'm expecting slush at Summit this weekend.
