T.L.I feel ya dude. I've downed like 3 40's since this whole thing started. 40's of welch's fruit snacks... I stopped boozin heavy after i moved out of employee housing. I'm pretty much just scared to death of getting a DUI since I live in Vail and most of the people I know up here are in Avon or down towards Eagle.
This whole thing has me pretty bummed. Been saving money so I can try to escape VR and get in a shop of my own and now I'm just sitting on my ass all day.. Even just a garage and I'd be happy. I could make more money doing small fabrication out of a tiny garage than I do at VR. Trying to move down towards Grand Junction and do warmer desert type shit tbh.
True true. Yeah, I've drank the least this season I have in a while. I did a full month sober at the start then a few days every week just because I didn't wanna drink, a few weeks or so at different times. And many of the days I drank I had like a beer or two. Still "a lot" but compared to when I first moved out here I was drinking until I was going to sleep one way or another, drinking from pretty much the time I got home until then. And yeah, one of the reasons I don't go to parties or the bars is not wanting to drive.
Junction is dope though if you mtn bike and stuff. Would be dope to get dirt bike or something.
Sucks BC parks has been on the out. At least you got to build some cool features. I remember that one season we didn't build shit.
Having a shop right now and some metal or wood would be fucking awesome right now. Just to build some shit and keep the mind going.
It sucked for us at Northstar because we got just enough snow early seasonto build out parks out, and we went pretty bold. Obviously having built out parks is needed, but we were running on inches over dirt and rocks. Pulling rocks up every night, hitting dirt and patching it. Finally got dumped on and had the snow to beef up the jump lines, pad the trails, build more weird snow features etc, and we closed the day of the first storm lol.
But year I think I'm done with VR after this season. Idk if I've just gotten sick of it, or things have gotten shittier, or worse. I said on my engagement survey if I ever left Northstar I'd probably be done with Vail forever. And I think that's true at least at this moment. Hoping to eventually move to some bullshit mtn somewhere and build a fun little park from scratch, maybe actually feel at home.
I'm rambling, but I got a keyboard in front of me and nothing but time.
