Why wouldn't we want to return to that?
Hope reality lives up to ^
Pics are amazing
It does all that & then some Bdenny.
Often makes me wonder why it took me so long to get around to living here.
Trust me, bd4 it really does look like that.....and then some.
It's going to be very hard leaving here but I reckon I'll have enough to keep me busy over there
Sigh...Only 5 months and 29 days to go...wonderful pics Stig
Only if everyone sits quietly, listens attentively and takes notes. Wine is serious stuff y'know?
Hmmmm,..... Name a proposed date & I'll supply the stick to keep the rabble in line !!
I guess we'll need a venue too.
Somewhere with two kitchens,.... great lounge area, parking & killer views.....
Hmmmmm...... Wonder where that might be,.....
Sorry to trundle out these old things again but this thread needed some action!!
^^ Yes Missus _implement is probably about 5 weeks here
New arrivals is the reason why MrsH couldn't book to come with me and MissH in January as a girl needs her mum to be with her when she is expecting her first and our oldest is expecting - on family ski day. At first I though oh well no problem we shall see the infant when we get home but pretty soon that wasn't an attractive idea so the December trip means we shall have our cake and eat it too (December snow permitting). We saw the little one on a ultrasound DVD on the weekend, its little heartbeat pumping away and arms and legs kicking. Heading to being a grandpa and turning the age on the crew list later this week there's no denying that I'm really moving into the stereotypical SP demographic nowadays.
Sounds like a nice place. Ill go!
Do you think the owner of said establishment will mind ?
Mate if you and I go and have a word, I reckon well talk him around.
I'll bring the whisky,...... Might as well ply him with good booze while we're at it !!
Just 4 more days!
Time until Saturday, November 16, 2013

Have you got any pics of TP in his fancy blue jacket and matching goggles.
All by accident of course
We are currently in Thredbo and I have noticed that the instructors have new fancy blue uniforms.
I must try and get a photo as they do look really good!
It was by accident ! Nikki knows.
Anyways, I think that would be the pot calling the kettle black Ralphy !!
Some accident TP, I think there was a bit of planning involved!
This afternoon we went for a wander around the village, and had a look in a few of the ski shops.
Gareth picks up some beautiful purple skis and asks rather loudly, "hey Nic, what about these?" Me "but I don't ski Gareth!" his response "it doesn't matter, they match your ski jacket and it is all about looks!" We got a few laughs from the staff
Rang Air Canada today to see about dropping Vancouver to Kamloops leg of flight. Wanted to know cost involved$$$$. Had a difficult conversation with air canada rep. Transferred to another toll free number. Spoke to another difficult to understand air canada rep. Had to leave my details and they would ring me back. Still waiting.
No problems booking one way rental Vancouver to Kamloops.
Hope it works out !
every time we visit the snowies, we grab a copy of the local newspaper called the Snowy Times, its sort of a tradition we have running.
This current edition has a full page article on SP and a full page advert promoting SP.
Hey mate, that's a video I need, seem to recognise some of the footage.
My last semi healthy day at SPs as I recall.
Can't we block Ralphy from posting. He's not even on the 2013\14 crew.
Bahaha......I am not "out" yet
Gotta find time to render some vid. Been busy trying to earn a few bucks so I can make it in March!!!
Is that you or the new bub talking.
And it's contagious
I'm watching this with a lot of interest cos I am in the same boat. How is it a cost to them? We bought the ticket. We are now giving them the opportunity to re-sell those seats and make more money.
May I ask who you went through for the car hire? We are still trying to decide.
Ralph has earned his spot on "the crew" ,.... Especially if you take total time spent at SP into account eh ?
Love that comic !
This !!! ^^^^
The days start getting shorter soon though,...... Which puts us on the downhill run to opening day !
