We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Dynastar Twisters, because I like to do the bumps. No bumps means boring. I can't wait to try these on the giant Superstar moguls.
Skiing and hunting - and drinks by the fire - are the blessings of winter. Too bad I don't play Paddle, because that's another one of those winter blessings.
Headed up north right now to Killington with a gang of pals with wives and/or girlfriends, for a merry weekend. We were going to do Sugarloaf, but decided against that drive. We have a Par-tay house, and one of our gang is happily in the program so we always have a fully-sober and emotionally-mature driver.
I remember once deciding to humiliate myself by taking my skis off and walking down the side of Superstar. That's when I realized I had become a dull grown-up. It was either that, or kill myself or somebody else. The bumps bigger than cars, with tiny alleys between them. I ain't good enough for that.
Next time, plan a trip to Placid and hit Whiteface. I lived in Colorado for a time, and it is the closest to Rocky Mtn. skiing in the east.......
And the town is a true winter wonderland. Skating and sledding on the lake, the whole Olympic sites, just truly wonderful.
A tip- the Harriman Dining room at the Inn on the lake will give you seconds on your meal if requested!!!!
