I don't belong here

I shouldn't be here at home, I should be there. I couldn't get Monday off work so I couldn't go. Left behind while the boys play. At least I have my dog and my beer. Tonights pick: Alaskan Amber. Save your beer bottles, boys. Watch the video at the end of those post.

There is our cabin in the wilderness

Looking out over the frozen lake at the mountains in the distance.

The lake in the winter

In the summer (just for contrast)


Decorating friends who fall asleep


However, I'm not missing using the outhouse at 20 to 30 below 0.

These are the temps from Lake Louise Weather. Our cabin is about 25 miles northeast of Lake Louise.

This is impressive. So, who is going to be the first one to try this?

I have a couple of friends that do trials.....I could sit and watch them for hours....

I'm not a bike geek, am I?:-)

Nothing to it. I do that every weekend after finishing a 30 pack. Of course, mine are Foster's big boy cans, but it's still pretty impressive! :^)
Your home away from home is amazing despite having to pee outside at -30! I can see why you are jonsin' to go.

I wanna be at your winter cabin too!! Have you heard anything after the interview?

11 more days 'til mine! Putting together a little portfolio.

I think I am more scared that I will get a job, making it official...but a good kind of scared.

I watched the guy ride the chain. These guys are amazing!

Old man, IF you can ride across the Fosters after drinking 30 of them, you are amazing :)

My cabin time is scheduled for March 10th!!! :)
