Let it snow Let it snow let it snow

OK as you all know I am working at Solitude ski resort, what you don't know is just how cool it is. All of the people I work with are great, we have a lot of fun and pretty much laugh most of the day.
Now for the important word from our sponsor. I skied my first turns on Sat. Skied for about an hour and it was fantastic. The first couple of turns were not the tightest you have ever seen but I got back in the groove quickly. I can't wait for it to start snowing again. It's about 55-60 outside here in the valley and not much cooler on top, I hope the cold comes soon, I'm ready to ski!!!

Now you all know I'm in the year of Rick--maybe the two years of rick? Well since this is all about me I decided to do something I have always wanted to do.
Are You Ready for this!
I bought a Yamaha WR 400 dirt bike to ride in the desert. Many of the guys at work ride and that gave me the incentive to get one for myself. I have Mon. and Tues. off and two of the guys with bikes have the same days off. You see where I am going with this. I will be able to ski in the afternoons, after work and ride the motorcycle on my days off. I just don't think things could get any better than this.

Overall things are as good as they could possibly be. I hope everyone who reads this is doing well and remembers to enjoy life while you can.

What a great blog! We have a 76 Airstream and had to gut about 75% when we bought it a few years ago. I'll get caught up on reading your blog and can't wait to see where you go next. Great site!

Dude! I'm fixin to pull the trigger on a KLR650 so I can explore the back roads and trails of the southern Appalachians! Bring that bike with you when you come home and we'll do some riding, hiking and camping!

Dude, My envy factor is through the roof. You live the life for all of us who wish we could do what your doing. We do miss you, and would love to see you when/if you come through WNC again. Until then, keep enjoying life to the fullest. Oh, and Gryphon says "woof". I think that means "Hi, Uncle Rick." Merry Christmas, Rick.
