    Stop defeating yourself, jeez.

    There's the huDge Pineview reservoir 15 minute drive from downtown, good public access to the Ogden river. Lots of people have beautiful gardens there, it's mostly flat so good biking around town plus a ton of great mtb in the hills. The paddleboarding on the reservoir 30 mintes away has beautiful cliffs and swimming areas.

    Again, you're going to have a hard time convincing me Marquette is that much better. If your place is close to Superior, that would be nice, but Ogden has a lot better growing season.

    Can I put you in touch with md9 & moe? Salt of the earth, super great folks. You remember Trescow, right?

    Just saw this.

    It would be great to see a mini / BBI18 in Utah again.

    It would be great to See Yetiman back in Utah for a ski vacation.

    GEEZ a ski trip starts coming together and your shopping real estate?

    Life does have it's twists and turns. I now spend my days trying to get my blood sugar under 200 Sumtin. Weigh 165 pounds and my big physical challenges are things like waking up in the morning to sit at my computer and work - Still employed.

    Anyway I might even find the motivation to rally for a Utah BBI18 - If I still ski? Not sure at this point

    Buster, if your current gig doesn't work out, you could be contract work for the Ogden Chamber of Commerce or be the "Skiing Rick Steeves". You are making me want to move to Ogden. I've spend quite a bit of time in the Wasatch Front over the last 25 years and have seen it go from the place that everyone wants to move to to the place a lot of people want to leave. No different that anywhere else in the mountain west. The one thing that has always stood out, economically, is that white collar 9-5 jobs pay OK but anything other than that pays dog shit it seems. I could be wrong but seems like that metro has a bunch of $15/hr jobs and not much else.

    It's a rare chance to bring my wife to see that area, the point would be to assess moving....if moving isn't feasible, there isn't a lot of point to dragging her along. It's pretty shocking to see that the only parts of the front I could afford to move, maybe, if we really buckled down and saved for a few years, would be places where the tongan crip gang used to shoot everything up with machine guns and you'd see metro gang unit cars driving around.

    I think I still have Tresckow's number. We just lost touch because...you know, different worlds. And I've had extended phases of needing to just not torture myself with looking at skiing stuff from Utah and fire season sit reports and all that stuff because it exacerbates my discomfort and depression with my current life where I have nothing to do with any of it. I had real reservations about skiing here because it's just a whole can of worms.

    yeti. / i-as --

    I urge you not to over-think this -- :
    there is value in your wife seeing you among friends, and seeing you, ,,, in a place that holds great meaning to You ! (!!)
    IF either of you ( especially, your wife ) feel like you are "dragging her along" , I further urge you to reassess the trip...

    ( I would offer that it is important (that) you can find enjoyment along the way - And travel reasonably well together.

    ( I have been following your ( stoke and Stuff ) a reasonably long time, and I did not perceive this is Not the case. … )


    I know some of your (Stuff) ain't light , but I would really hope and wish that this trip,,, could Be a joyful rememberance, Not a stressful wonder of the future...

    YOU have given some of us here encouragement by the life you live - that includes [ keeping on ] when you are hurting, no longer skiing 100+ days, and cope-ing with depression...

    I have been going to montana in March to see that there is also beauty in living on the U.p.
    ( I won't be trading (Lake) Superior for the reservoirs of the west. . . )


    I'll make you this pledge :
    keep pedaling ; I will meet You and your wife for lunch on March 16th at Soli, or Snowbasin, or PowMtn ( haven't been there - Oh, yeah (yes) , I was : Dad and I drove by in 1988.
    I forgot about that. )

    … you choose --

    hang in ; Carry On ! - and Thank you...

    You are an inspiration (!)

    Consider this one of those rare opportunities...Occasionally, a door just opens up for you. What do you do?

    Looking forward to meeting you, IAS.

    What field is your wife in? Job market is strong here. What do u want to do? Look forward to skiing with u and meeting up.
    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    No pressure. Take the trip, bring the wife along. Enjoy the skiing, make new friends, treat it as a vacation.

    She manages a corporate retail outlet. She's been a regional manager of the year a bunch of years running and her two way relationship with the company is very good, she loves it, it loves her...etc. There were, or maybe are, promotional opportunities that would involve moving to Milwaukee or Minneapolis or something like that. She enjoys our life here. We're close to the beach, little house, etc. She really doesn't want to leave the company, and her gut reaction to Utah, as a whole, is familiar to me....it was mine before I had life experiences pushing me to go there against my instincts. So I've felt like I want her to see it the way I did, that may not be possible in a short period of time....I'm not sure.

    Anyway, yeah, we should go. We've never really done a vacation because the entire time we've been together it's kind of one of us working or lack of money or dog logistics....all that stuff.

    basket case. Wear your helmets everybody....being a scramble head is hard.
