- I truly believe
that on my deathbed, even if I win the lottery
(that I never play) and am a billionaire...
I will still think the cost vs. value of this
experience is just so goddamned far out of whack. More
on that later... and in the video of course -
- It's so funny,
I want to defend myself SO BADLY because
I really was happy to spend the money just so the
kids could experience this, but that's why
I added the snowboarding line. I know that from
the gear to the fees, etc - snowboarding is infinitely
more expensive... but there is actual VALUE to
it, because that's not something I could do in Ohio
for free. I'm happy to pay whatever the going rate is
for a special experience...
- ...going down a
fucking hill on a tube? Not even a real SLED?
Duuuuuuude. That's a tough pill to swallow. The other
stuff was cool too, but again - not for $20 a ride. I
mean what in the serious hell.
- But overall? Just
a wonderful experience to get to have in what
legitimately was a staycation. This was just a normal
3-day weekend. I cannot believe I've been out here for
22 years and have never done that. Well I did go to
Lake Arrowhead in 2005... did I wax poetic about the
climate difference then?
a quick scan>
- Ooooh, yeah, was
in the midst of some other drama at the time, so,
no... but it was also May and not particularly snowy
(there there was some).
- But truly, I'm
super enamored with how close this is - and the kids
took to the irritating part of snow pretty well so I
think snowboards and/or skiing may be in the future.
Time will tell...
