Well, I’m finally able to lay down and relax after a long but great Christmas day. I got up around 8 AM and headed to my Brother’s to say hi to his kids, then over to my sisters to spend some time with hers. Then took my grandma back to my brothers. Then back up to my mom’s place. Pretty much did this all day. I did go down to the golf course and did a little sledding with my nieces and sister. I’ll post the pics my dad took of us. After that we headed up to my Mom’s place for dinner and stuff ourselves so full our bellies were hurting. Now it’s time to slip into a food Coma……

Living the high life (9,600 Feet)
I guess I need to update my blog since it’s bee a little while and soo much has changed.
As most of you know by now I’ve moved up to Breckenridge, CO which sits at 9,600 feet elevation. So far I am completely in Love with the place. It has all that I like to have in a place to live.
The outdoors are amazing. I did some hiking up here this summer before the move and it is a great area for that. Next summer I can start climbing some of the 14ers. It also has a lot of mountain biking which I love so much. The mountain biking varies from local trails to going to one of the many ski resorts around here that offer lifts up for an exhilarating downhill ride. There is also plenty of XC Biking to go around. Since I moved up here in the winter I went right to participating in the winter sports out here. I’ve now been up snowboarding 11 times so far this year between Keystone or Breckenridge. I still need to get over to A-Basin, Vail, and Beaver Creek which are all on my Pass. Which is another amazing part of here. You can get unlimited season passes to all five resorts for a mere $649. I’d like to see someone in Utah get that good of a deal! I also plan on doing some XC skiing, snowshoeing, and back country snowboarding this year when we get some more snow.
The Social life is also good up here. I moved in with an awesome roommate who happens to know quite a few of the gay guys here in Summit County. Between her, Connexion.org and Erik’s Gay happy hour down at River Mountain Lodge GayBreck.com, I have met quite a few good friends already.
All in All I can say that living up here is a hell of a lot better than living in Hell (Phoenix) ever was. Plus Zip seems to love it here too 🙂 Especially when Makers comes over to Visit (Makers is a huge irish wolf hound).
