Happy New Year
Greetings from 12,000 feet on the Continental Divide in Colorado. IMO, this is the best way to enjoy the snow -- racing along at up to 45 mph up from the base camp to within sight of the summit. It was a totally enjoyable 2 hours for someone who has never piloted a snowmobile before. Brought out the daredevil in me!
Tonight is my last night in Frisco Colorado and tomorrow I return to Texas. I had originally planned on taking the Loveland Pass out of here, but this evening it started to snow again and I really don't want to mess with chains on my tires so we'll probably just take the tunnel out of here and head east thru Kansas until we hit Interstate 35. It will be a long and boring drive, but it will be good to get back home.
My little girl left for Rome two days ago and I won't see her again until the end of January. I'm pleased with the progress that she's making at college and the things that she is being exposed to. Our conversations about the world are becoming more and more interesting as time marches forward.
Well, I've a long drive ahead of me so it's time to get horizontal on the bed. I wish a prosperous New Year for all who read this.Posted by mjwoods at January 1, 2009 11:30 PM
