Take my skiing poll

January 11, 2007 1 comment
On the right-hand side of my web site here (http://grothadventures.spaces.live.com/) I now have a gadget that takes a quick poll. Today I ask which location has the best snow… Colorado, Utah, or The Alps. I grew up on Washington snow, and I do love the "hop turn" in the thick snow, and Montana certainly has some great snow given the right conditions (especially Big Sky), but lets see what the votes say. Post a comment if you think something other than these 3┬áis the best.

Driving in the UK

In London, I have still only driven a few blocks, and riden my bicycle a few miles. But, when I was in Redmond dor a couple of days last week, I really had to think about which side of the road to drive on. After sitting in Seattle traffic though, I have decided that I only want to live someplace where I don’t need a car – public transportation, walking, and bicycles are the only way to go!

Our friends Keith and Lisl are moving back to Seattle from Winter Park and might be in for a shock at the traffic.

Next week I promise to post some photos from Chamonix, France.
