Bob, what did you and Shane decide as the date for burling? It's been the 1st weekend in March for the last few years. Not really sure how I feel about the newbies that you've recruited, but as long as there's room at the Inn, all should be good. Remember, it's boysweekend, not girlsweekend. You should have another weekend, where all your new ski pals show up and enjoy the offerings that "our" happy valley has to offer. This has been a great tradition, let's not mess with it too much.

Joe I have been pointing to the second weekend in March for a while. Seems like that is what we have been doing for some time. 3/11,12,13.

As far as Newbies showing up there may be a few new faces. We need to replace Jon, DP, Jim and Chick who don't seem to have time anymore. You know how it is, lots of talk. The proof is who is there on Friday morning ready to drag a sled 3 miles.  You really have to respect anyone willing to put that effort in.

One of these days we will find the cabin occupied when we get there. Its got to happen. I am thinking of going Thursday if the snow is good. I am BC starved.

We talked about the 2nd weekend in March, and I plan on going in Friday, March 11th. I hope we get some newbies as it adds to the local color.

Sounds good boys. March 11-13 it is. No problem with new blood, as long as they know what they're getting into. Brother Dave asked about whether or not you two crazy-boys were interested in his cardigan cabin trip. It's March 3-5. I'm going to have to pass, too much going on. 

Here's a shot of MRG taken today. What a fked up winter we're having.

No I didn't sell it. I like it and will keep it. We are trying to buy another house with a long driveway so it might come in handy.

This is other one is in St George. It's Joanne's Mothers house. Its on 2a  right on the Williston town line. We got the chance to buy it because she passed. Seems like a better retirement house.

No I don't not right away. Last time I tried I got more people then I could deal with who want to live up here. We didn't sell because the house we bid on went to another buyer. I wouldn't be selling a house anyway, its a life style. I will not play the game where they make an offer with contingencies. Do your home work and make a real offer or go away.

If we get this other house We will move our address up there but I think we will own two houses for at least a year.  We might get room mates in both places. We might put an apartment in the garage in St George. We don't know till we have it.

It might all fall through we don't know til we close.

You probably know a cluster fuck better then most. You bought one and how is the reno coming? All you need is a few kids to complicate things. Then have a few old people die slowly. Life is a cluster fuck and I like it that way. IT keeps it lively.

Well boys, if the current extended forecast holds true, next weekend is a cold washout. In the old days - when more of us went - I'd say let's do this. But with skiing being the focus now, and of course some of us have gotten too old, I'm not sure about it. Whatcha think boys? 

This winter - if you can call it that - blows. What a let down it's been, although I've enjoyed some most excellent lift service, and hiking, so not all is lost. There's of course still hope for some major snowstorm later this month.... Don't hold your breath.

I may go up there again this weekend and see, They could pick up more then a foot of snow up there. Billy Romps crew will be up there. Maybe Friday. I am sure there will be skiing through the weekend. Its too bad because this weekend would be good up there. Its hard to shift when you have 6 or 8 people.

Maybe we could put it on hold and come up a weekend that will be fun.

We have gone plenty of times and had fun without skiing. Breakable crust and mashed potatoes is always possible. Open streams are there half the time. At least it will be warm. We can cllimb out Saturday and ski Smuggs. I have a free ticket.

I plan on going up there this weekend for a final scouting trip. There is so much snow up there that it is not going away anytime soon, and it has it's own micro-climate so what happens in the valleys doesn't necessarily translate into what's going on up there. There's still a lot of exploring to be done, so the skiing will still be good.
