Just let's stick to Rabbit Ears and not even mess with Vail. We can go there one day just to check it out if you want but I am not going to do any climbing even in the areas we normally frequented. You'll see what I mean. It will be a fun trip. We just have to be smart about it.
Gave up sled life for salt life.
Took one of Duffy's classes on Monday night in Bismarck, it was worth the drive and the $50 very educational. 4 of the 5 guys in my group that usually goes west took it, the 5th guy had already taken it and couldn't make the 200 mile drive for it. If anyone has the opportunity to take the class and plans a trip west, I recommend it!
I've taken several and so has my wife.
I've been part on a few S&Rs,
Was a Ranger in the Army.

I'm also confident that she will find my corpse in time to collect the life insurance.
I'm OK with this.
