The Mountain is OPEN!!!

Monday, November 26th, 2007

Both Blackcomb and Whistler are now open for business. So this ski instructor has started training which consists of learning how to ski which is key for me at the moment, but get this I am not the worst one! AWESOME. I continue on with training for the next 10 days and will get my first bunch of kids in the next couple weeks.

Also this past weekend was the 10th anniversary of the passing of our friend Jenn Tunstall - time does not stop so live in the moment and do what makes you happy. I am very happy with my life choice to move to the West coast for the time being. I went for a hike the other day with Brock, Aaron and my dog friend Charlie who is a very fluffy dog and he wasn’t watching where he was going and walked into a bur bush- thus the dog got a nice hair cut when he got back to me place.

Bear update- so Brock and Aaron where out partying the other night and informed me later that there was a bear with two cubs in the village just waking around. And of course there were some Asian people following taking pictures not the smartest ideal. Also, the other day when I was waiting to get on the gondola an Asian women pointed to me and wanted to get a picture with me. OF COURSE I let the women take a picture of me and her with her holding my ski poles. Take that Mars they love me here!!!

Here are some photos if you want to see some pic’s

That is about all new with this girl,

1st Day Apart

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Sue left for Melbourne last night, I remain here in Sydney. From here on out you’ll be reading about 2 different adventures.

Random facts so far:

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

Distance travelled by plane: 15,350 km

Distance travelled by car: 1,850 km

Interesting animals seen along the way: Sea lions, elephant seals, harbour seals, whales

Cities we’ve stopped in: San Francisco, Monterey, Carmel, Lucia, Santa Barbara, New Port Beach, San Diego, La Jolla, Hong Kong.

Strangest food eaten so far: Desert moss (very tastey has a mushroom type taste),

Chicken feet - the whole bird is cooked and put on a platter- also black in colour not really sure why?

Bird’s nest (which is the reguratation from birds which people eat….)

Oh ya Pidgeons also a delicacy, not sure why it is such a treat for people since there are so many around. The birds are sooo small it doesn’t even look like they have any meat on them.
