As if I dont have enough travel coming up, Rinny talked me into heading up to Mammoth for the 3 day weekend. The idea of going to a ski resort on a 3 day weekend sounded actually pretty horrible. But once again, as always happens, we had a fantastic time, and i am so glad i went. From what i can remember, this is what happened:

Friday January 18th

Rinny picked Thundy and I up from work at about 5:20. we knew the ride would be pretty long as it took us about 45 minutes just to get out of Burbank. When things did open up, we got up to Palmdale or Lancaster(cant remember which) before we stopped for gas and a bite to eat. We ate at Panera wasn't too bad, they had a fireplace at least. The rest of the ride was pretty uneventful as we just listened to music on our way up Highway 395. We arrived in Mammoth about midnight or so, got comfy in the condo, popped in the Californication DVD and finally fell asleep

Saturday January 19

We woke up to most everyone gone, already on the mountain. I remember the days when that was me, first up and walking around shaking everyone to get a move on. Not anymore! We sat around the condo with a fire going talking about what we might do. It was obvious that Rinn wanted to go Cross Country skiing and that was fine with me because i prefer the exercise involved as opposed to sitting on lifts, waiting in lines, and skidding down mountains. So Rinn, Lauren, Josh, Thundy and myself all went over to Tamarack and spent the day in the trails. Amazing. After skiing, we spent some time in the kooze, watched a little Bring It On marathon and then headed out to Moguls for a great dinner, where the waiter ALLEGEDLY cooks your dinner for you. We ended the evening at the condo with a fire and watching Touching the Void. What a freaking movie!

Sunday January 20th

I wanted no part of snowboarding today. It was windy outside our Condo and Ive been on that mountain when the wind is blowing and it can be pretty miserable. But after such a great day yesterday, I decided why not go take a few runs and then go do what I came to Mammoth to do.....WATCH FOOTBALL!!!!! The mountain was cold and the wind was blowing, we ended the ski day taking the Gondola to the top and taking Daves Run down. Corinne and I temporarily broke up on this run, our first break up and my feet absolutely froze, but the day was worth it and once again, I was glad we went. After taking the shuttle back to the condo, we went over to Hennessy's to watch the NFL Championship games. Neither team i was rooting for won but the drinks and the company made up for it. We walked home as the snow began to fall We spent the night in the condo playing charades and watching Into The Wild.......What a freaking movie!!!!!

Monday January 21

Mondays even suck on 3 day weekends, thats how I feel anyways cause wherever you are, your trip is over and its time to go home. And if you happen to be home, well...then monday feels like sunday...and Sundays always suck. Right? So we headed out early, grabbed a bagel and some gas and back down Highway 395....back to LA!!!!! What a Freaking road!!!
