Today was just a sensational day in Breckenridge. Kip and I were up early and grabbed first chair and it was blue sky, no wind, no lift lines and great snow. Sounds like a perfect day – perfect day would be 12 inches (of snow…. keep your mind out of the gutter).
We just got back and I’m going to head down the street to the local rec center for some lap swimming.
If my previous experiences are any gauge, I will be the only guy wearing speedos. It is weird over here, guys will be walking around completely nude in the change rooms (which isn’t really my MO), but then will be lap swimming in dork shorts. In Aussie my experience has been the opposite, no nudity in the change rooms but 90% or more lap swimming in speedos.
Don’t you guys worry, I’ll be speedo’ing up for the cause. I’m going to wear my AussieBum Portsea’s so if you are at the pool in Breck and see a guy wearing blue AussieBum speedos, say g’day.
I told you guys that before I left Aussie I ordered some new speedos to be delivered to Kip’s place.
I’m not sure if they are for him or more for ‘us’ to enjoy. They have taken a little longer than I expected, I had hoped they would be here waiting for me but as of this morning, the tracking tells me that they have left the San Francisco USPS Facility at 12:32am this morning and is in transit to the destination…. so they can’t be too far away I hope.
Nobody guessed what the 2 pairs of speedos are (I offered a 12 month membership to SwimmerBoyz.com for anyone who could) but Dr. Phil (a long time commenter on the blog) got really close.
Otherwise the trip so far is going great, we had a bunch of snow over the weekend and it feels very wintery and cold. But if I wanted warm I should have stayed in Terrigal.
This weekend Kip and I have a bit of an adventure planned provided it isn’t too ‘wintery’ which I’m looking forward to and I will share with you guys of course.
Time to put on my snowboarding boots and jump on the gondola…..
Today I received my snowboarding season pass to Breckenridge in the mail. This winter I’ll be heading over to see Kip at some point although I haven’t figured out what time or for how long just yet.
For those of you guys who are new, Kip is my number 2, officially he is my ‘server administrator’ but he pretty much does everything that I’m not smart enough to do. He keeps everything online and running smoothly. Kip isn’t all that interested in the running of the sites themselves but he does frequent them and I bounce pretty much ALL of my ideas and designs off him before I publish them.
Kip started working for me a few years ago, I’ve stayed with him at his place in Breckenridge and he has stayed with me here in Aussieland. It is pretty convenient that Kip loves speedos….. These days I consider him one of my best friends which is kind of convenient since we barely go a day without talking to each other even when we are an ocean apart.
As for when I might head over, summer is pretty chaotic here on the coast with school holidays to maybe I’ll head over for January? Funny thing is, once I’m in Breckenridge, it is cheaper for me to live with Kip than it is for me to live here. And those American boys love my accent which comes in handy.
Maybe I should ask Alex if he wants to come…… now there is an idea, I can’t believe I didn’t think of that before now.
