Hi there, welcome to my blog.

What's this all about? Well, that's a question I'm probably not even qualified to answer. I guess it started off because I had nothing better to do, but turns out that I kind of like it. So when I'm not working for The Man I like to take pictures, make videos and write about whatever else might seem like a good idea at the time.

From dragon boating to mountain biking, to road trips and travels overseas - this is me trying to enjoy life. Clock out at 5, eat, drink and don't forget to smile a lot.

Monday, January 17

...and the next ski trip is booked. Lake Louise, Kicking Horse and Revelstoke here we come.

Just what you need on a Monday morning: a longer drive to work. On top of that I forgot my work bling (aka lanyard with all my access cards on it)...and I just ripped my shirt on a loose screw on someone's desk. Great.

Anyway, other than nothing much being awesome this weekend, a couple of us finally got the next ski trip ironed out and booked. It's always hard to get people to commit to dropping some cash and flying across the county ahead of time, so I guess for the meantime it will be the three of us hitting up legendary Kicking Horse, Revelstoke and Lake Louise in February. Nothing will beat the group of 12 we had in Whistler a few years back.

I've never been skiing in the interior before so I'm just expecting straight powder. I've been to Lake Louise a handful of times but the interior will be a pretty new scene for me, so I'll probably have to go and pick up an avalanche beacon so they can find my frozen corpse.

Also, I'm not sure how much of a regular occurrence it is, but the highway between Lake Louise and Golden was closed over the weekend too due to avalanche warnings and off in the distance a bunch of skiers in somewhat nearby Fernie got avalanched on...getting stuck in the mountains in any way, shape or form is probably not that great of an experience.

On a different note, Jon and I played a few games of Kino Der Toten over the weekend, and we managed to get to level 22. As per usual we died for a pretty dumb reason. Looks like we moved up the MP leaderboard...
