    I don't really get the Steamboat appeal. Not a great downtown area, condo sprawl, mediocre skiing....etc. Back to the regularly scheduled bickering.

    I'll get back to you about Italy after November. I decided to look around after Trump was elected. But, there's two problems in that country for me, and they're connected. First, of course, is language. But, maybe after a year I'll get it. But, second, is getting a driver's license. It's really hard. Nothing like here, which is a farce, and ten minutes on any highway is proof of that. Written, oral, and, of course, drivers tests, not just one of each, and the tests are hard, and, of course, in Italian. I have read it can take years. So, try skiing without a car.

    Completely agree. Most overrated ski town in CO.
    And the mtn: good treeskiing, great snow at the right times but the low elevation is a killer. Doesn't have that classic Rocky Mtn alpine feel to it. Probably will be CO's first major loss to climate change.

    You can bring fur kids to Switz pretty easily. We're moving there with ours in another year.

    Hah, I know I'm the one who first mentioned it but I actually agree with y'all. But I figured the lower elevation could work well for him and hey, it still beats lots of places.

    Goddamn Benny can you not be a pretentious asshole whenever the discussion is about colorado? We get it - you are a local and you know much more about Colorado than any of us, and your opinion is always correct.



    Anyhow, an experience today reminded me of this thread.


    I was in the hot tub at this Condo I am staying at in Breck and there were a bunch of super hammered " locals" in the hot tub who had obviously snuck into the pool area. 5 dudes and 2 girls. Guys were talking to the tourists in the hottub acting a little bit pretentious about how they got to live in Breck and how dope it was in the wintertime, blah blah blah.

    They kept talking about all the drama at the restaurant they were working at, and how the restaurant sucked but it was worth it to live in Breck. Something about this all struck me as kinda funny....

    These guys who were hammered at 3 in the afternoon on a Sunday had the gall to act somewhat pretentious about living in Breck. Nevermind the fact that they had snuck into a hottub that wasn't theirs, and they are working a shitty restaurant job, probably living in an overcrowded shithole condo or house.

    These guys were pretty close to my age, and while I am sure they think they are living the dream, I think I am much better off. Sure, I live in Denver, but at least I have a nice house and a rewarding career. These guys? Bus boys? At 29, fuck that.

    Well best of luck, really, My Malamute down in a planes hold would be absolutely miserable and likely howling the entire time. I am afraid for their well being.

    Benny, I will ask my step bro about the drivers license and get back to you as they were there for 5+ years based out of Switzerland.

    I was in Denver once and this pretentious schmuck kept bragging about how he has a nice house in the burbs and drives some fancy car. Everyone in Denver must be just like that.

    And in Benny's mind, he's singing that No Doubt song about her old bathwater...

    If your dog is well behaved, look into ESA. Our Malnois/German flies with us in the cabin and does really well. She's 65 lbs though. Malamutes are usually a LOT bigger than that.

    I bet those guys sneak into hot tubs to regale tourons with their tales of "Living the Dream™" in Denver.

    ESA is kinda gaming the system and I am certain two ESA dogs is not going to fly. I just wish there was an airline that would remove two of the three seats somewhere in the plane cabin for the dogs to lay down. I would gladly pay the cost of the missing seats or more to have them beside me.
    Anyways, I am glad you can get your dog over there safely. Me, I will just hang out another 5-7 years with my buddies before making it over there. Shit, by then they may have self driving cars and I won't need a license.

    Totally agree there needs to be a better solution for dogs on planes for those willing to fork it over.

    Dogs could cruise. On board kennel. Etc. I'd guess there are other more humane ways.

But, with its ever-expanding system of subclasses and legroom fees, is there any better symbol of our self-sorting tendencies?

    Until recently, airborne animals were unaffected. While their owners squabbled over medallion status, they generally sat, crated, in the cargo hold—the last vestige of airline equality. All that changed this year, with the opening of the ARK at JFK, which calls itself “the world’s first privately owned, 24/7 animal airport terminal.” Situated “airside”—near the tarmac—it offers luxurious amenities, including climate-controlled stalls for horses and, for dogs, a bone-shaped splashing pool and a spa that gives “pawdicures.” Fees for dogs start at around a hundred dollars. Horses can cost up to ten thousand.

    Right, I just need to win the Lotto for that to happen. Private flight from San Diego to Yurp is likely $200-$300k.

    4matic, I looked at a cruise across the Atlantic and the dogs had to stay in the kennel area at all times. Not sure what is worse, days in a kennel with me stopping by every now and then or 5 hours from SD to NYC and then 6 hours from NYC to Paris down in the hold of a plane. My American Alsatian would likely be ok, (assuming the flight didn't kill him) my Malamute/wolf hybrid would likely go bongers.

    My wife said Vancouver Island in the summer and Kelowna in the Fall and Winter is the call, so that matter has been settled. Thanks for your ideas.
