Colorado here we come!

Tomorrow we are heading to Colorado for a week of skiing.  YAHOO!!!!!
My youngest son Charlie and Jan, a girl friend of mine will be flying out tomorrow evening.  My oldest son, Joe and his girlfriend will not be joining us as this winter.  He started his first full time job in October and hasn't "earned" any vacation days yet.  I will miss his presence - he is an organizer and ALWAYS knows his way around the mountains.  Oh well - without him, it does force me to pay more attention to the trail maps.  ;-)
We were going to drive to Colorado and then at the last minute decided to try and price some airline tickets using Priceline.  As it turned out, we got a pretty decent price - only problem is we are not flying out of Madison until 7:30PM, getting into Denver at 9PM.  We then have to pick up a car and drive up to Frisco, which is close to 2 hours from the airport.  It will be a long evening and the funny thing is that we will get there at approximately the same time as if we had driven - but we won't have to be in the car for 16+ hours.  Priority number 1 for tomorrow afternoon will be to take a nap - something I am not real good at - but something that will make skiing on Monday possible.

Charlie and I last year!

We watched the Badgers play in the Rose Bowl - it was a disappointing game.  I hope that the Packers will be more successful tomorrow afternoon when they play the Bears.  

I will be posting short updates and some photo's from Colorado!
