April Flew By In Slow Motion

The Mirage, Las Vegas

There are still a few days left in this rainy month, yet it seems like events at its beginning occurred ages ago.  This is the common result of a schedule so incredibly jammed packed that the passage of time takes on strange dimensions.  Let’s see… the beginning of the month found me in California, skiing for a couple of days and chillaxing on the beach.  The next weekend I was in New Hampshire, busy with all the best man stuff for my friend’s wedding.  The following Monday I flew to Las Vegas for the NAB show.  The only money I lost in Vegas was to some overpriced meals at the hotel; it’s great not being a gambler!  Then just this past weekend, I jetted out to Colorado on a last-minute whim to try out my new freestyle skis.  Apparently, I couldn’t have timed it any better, as 24 inches of fresh snow hit the mountains the day before I got there.  My first attempt was to ski A-Basin, but the pass leading to the mountain was closed, so I ended up at Loveland.  Powder was around my knees all day, and a couple times I burst waste-deep through drifts and ridges.  Definitely a treat and a great way to end the season.  Many thanks to Sarah Ong and her family for their hospitality on this quick, very last minute trip!

Somehow in the middle of all that, I managed to work the equivalent of nearly 5 weeks of full-time work.  I think I did most of my sleeping on airplanes.

Pictures say it better than words, so I uploaded a bunch in the gallery below…

    yeah, me too! That would have been a pretty amazing day even in the middle of the regular season, but for the middle of April? Wow! Thanks again for helping to make it happen.
