There and Back Again

Well here we are, back in front of the PC and not on the other side of the Webcam,no more looking down the mountain or soaking in the hot tub gazing down the Yampa Valley easing that right knee. Seems an age since leaving London Heathrow arriving in Denver and jumping into the Hummer, yes that's right a Hummer, should have been a Jeep but they upgraded us to the Hummer, I thought I had left armoured vehicles behind, but peering through the slits called windows and closing the doors that were as… Continue

Mike, We fly out tomorrow (11th) the kids are getting excited and looks like the weather is in our favour. Perhaps we can find time for a beer when you arrive?

Hi, no, you aren't nosey at all.

We tend to pay for our flights partly with BA airmiles. Since we booked so late, BA didn't have any flights available with airmiles from Denver, but plenty from LA: so it made sense to fly back via LA. Normally we book a lot earlier and get the availability we want from Denver.

It was a bit of hassle coming home, but the LA-LON flight is longer than the DEN-LON flight - so more opportunity to sleep on the flight.

Not as of today, but don't count us out yet, still working on it mate.
If the 'Boss' can get one more day, we will be out there.

Hope that my blog has helped pass some time before your trip. You WILL have a fantastic trip! I hope that the weather is as kind to you as it has been to us: we have had some very varied conditions - just about all great, one way or another :-)

We missed you yesterday! We are going to have to overlap our trips next time: share some runs and have a few drinks at Slopeside. It was a great meet, yesterday, but sorely lacking you and your wife. Boo

I do believe things are not yet sorted on this BB mate.

Thank you very much :-). I will pop in and see SBK and hopefully meet some of the other resdient contributors too :-).

Fingers crossed for some good conditions too, but I am sure that it will be fantastic, whatever the weather.

Husband has popped into work for a few hours, I am left to make the house look respectable (get rid of the Xmas decorations etc - not that we have many up) and pack. I am pretty organised, I think. Checked in online a couple of hours back, but I never feel comfortable until I step through the terminal door at Heathrow... ;-)

Will be in touch - via posts and blogs etc :-)

Up at 05:30 most days mate, wife still teaching (33years) and out the door at 06:40 so next thing is to boot up and then catch up with the world.

Will see what I can arrange over Christmas ref a visit mid Feb.
Have a great Christmas, our fondest regards to you, the wife and family. May 2009 be a great year for all of us.

Keith and Rosalee.

Looking at coming back for a second trip. I will see what I can work out and if possible arrange the time to match part of your trip dates.

Sorry, no Army issue planks to lend you but lots of memories.

Hello Mike, nice to see your back, got to get my AMF(L) legs back together for Boxing day arrival in the Boat.
Stuck in a rut, staying in the Ptarmigan Inn while it still stands.

Take care, Merry Christmas and a Happy 2009..
