I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season. I’ll be giving 2008 a great send off on the slopes!
Wow! All of the stuff I have to pack for a ski vacation for a family of five sure takes up a lot of space in the car. The beach is easy. Just throw a bathing suit in a bag and go. Skiing requires more and bulkier paraphernalia than the beach. I’m not even talking about the skis, boots, and poles. There are ski pants, sweaters, long underwear, gloves, hats, neck gators, goggles, heavy socks, turtlenecks, and more. Multiply that by five people for five days and you have a ton of stuff! Oh! I forgot to mention the groceries for breakfasts, snacks, hot cocoa, and the all important wine and libations. It will all be worth it when we get there. But for now, I’m just hoping I’ll be able to fit in the car.
