Way back before Bode was even a thought, Jason and I were pretty avid snowboarders. We were on a mountain somewhere every weekend of the winter. We drove the only 2 wheel drive SUV in the state of California, but it got us there and we loved it. We dreamed of quitting our jobs and becoming lifties. 2 and 2. 1 and 3. 4 singles. We got this.
With a European/African trip as our next main goal, we decided that springtime would be a better launch date than winter. Also, it’s time we stopped crashing at our parents’ houses. What to do in the meantime? Live out our other dream- ski bums.
It won’t be all on the snow, though. We’ll research the ins and outs of vehicle shipping, the Schengen Agreement, carnets, visas, vehicle permits, etc. Heck, we may even write that book. Jason will work. Plus, there is that homeschooling thing.
So, we’ve made the decision on how to spend the next few months (like, tonight). But, the where is a bit overwhelming. Obviously, we want a good mountain and a sweet place to stay. We’d also like to find a cool town. Value is high on the list too – we’ll be looking for opportunities.
Now that the decision has been made, we’re getting pumped up to be back on the snow. We’ve gone a few years without a winter. Jason has been working like crazy to get Red Beard ready. Despite a ton of setbacks, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’ll be leaving soon – we just need a destination.
This is where you come in.
Got any suggestions for where we should go? Know of any opportunities? (we’re awesome house-sitters!) As always, any and all advice or suggestions are appreciated!
