Finally snowing

After a bit of a slow start to the season, the last week has provided a much needed snow. My job is still good, allowing me to get up on the mountain at least a few hours every day. The family came out over Xmas and we had a wonderful time hanging out and skiing/snowshoeing together.

Heres some pictures:
My job as a ski rental technician. Mohawk not required, but awesome

Buffalo Pass snowshoeing with Michael and Beth Neder

Above is a picture of the sun rising last week off of the back of my boat. As a rule, I like to avoid waking before noon, but I guess stupid things like "magesty" can sometimes serve as incentives.

A couple of weeks ago, I got to play ultimate with a club based out of LA called Monster. The tournament was Southwest Regionals and was held in Phoenix. The team was fairly good with sever really good players, so we did fairly well despite not having played together too much. It was a great time, Id love to pick up with these guys again sometime.

I made it back to Dylan and Amanda's wedding in Robbinsville, NC. Perfect wedding in my opinion: Not dressy, held outside, bonfire, camping, dancing and lots of good friends. Deckard, pictured below, gave a hilarious toast. Prior to the wedding, Ben, Travis, Keenan, Chelsea and I headed up to Deckard and Katy's house in Black Mountain to hang out. We made it to Alex's camp, where one of his friends, a giant banana, took us swimming.

same as it ever was

So I'm not sure if anyone is reading this because I haven't seen any feedback in the comments, but I suppose that could be due to the fact that nothing too exciting has happened out of here. Don't get me wrong California is a wonderful place, but I have managed to stay out of the kind of trouble that makes for awesome stories. We spend every other weekend in Catalina. When we are there we basically stay on the boat and make sure everything is running we have gotten to get off and go to the town of Avalon a few times for some meals and some beers, but most of the time we just hang out on the boat beautiful scenery, but not as active as I like to be. When we are not in Catalina, I have been playing some alternate with a team called monster based in Los Angeles, hanging out at some fun bar's in Newport Beach, and doing a little bit of exploring. I found out about a Sushi restaurant grand opening in Chino Hills. $2.50 all you can eat buffet. This is one of the pieces of tuna that later turned into nigiri and sashimi. it looks like a beef shoulder or something:

We made it over to giant Sequoia national for a fun camping trip, up to Los Angeles/Hollywood area for a couch surfing party, a visit with Boz, Weldon, Quin, andD Rob and a day at Venice Beach to watch what David Cross accurately calls the parade of the delusion. Speaking of, I am going back up to Hollywood to see him do some standup on September 21.

As for the future, I plan on back to steamboat for the winter. It was a wonderful place to live last winter and I can't wait to see some snow again. Before that, I hope to see a lot of you in Atlanta and in North Carolina when I come back on the weekend of October 10 Dylan's wedding. I am going to try to make it a long weekend hopefully get it sure about to Athens may be a night at the Chattooga but certainly a few days in Roswelll and the weekend at the wedding and North Carolina. I apologize for some weird spelling and punctuation marks in this posting; I am using a new dictationprogram that writes down everything that I say. It seems to work surprisingly well although it occasionally it types some things incorrectly. I think he got in season and will slow down now that it is after Labor Day, so if anybody is looking for a Southern California vacation, I am up for some adventures. I have to see a rebut he soon, either in Atlanta, North Carolina or steamboat. Heres a picture of one of the many huge sea lions that we see and hear on a daily basis.
