Brian here, as always, I don't think Michael will be posting very much even though I know he is a master emailer with you ski teamers! I'll try to get him to post here, it'll be a nice change of pace from my usually long rants!
Anyways, here we are, our last night in Colorado before we head to Europe! I'm still packing as I write this, almost on my last bit of packing, should only take me the rest of the night as I've been packing and re-packing all day long. I don't think staying up late for three nights straight was such a great Idea but it had to be done! Last night was my Sisters graduation party and the previous nights were spent hanging with friends celebrating the summer, my birthday and things to come!
This trip has been nearly a year in the making and is a big deal as michael and I embark upon the International stage! My feelings are of excitement and some uncertainty as this will be the first time I have been traveling without my own means of transportation as well as being overseas! This isn't the only reason why I'm feeling anxious, the first race of our trip is a World Cup, the worlds largest stage of mountain, and if thats not enough, it'll be my first race of the 2008 season! Ah, we have the skills, just have to make sure our heads are on straight and that we ride and practice smart!
Its starting to get a little late here, and I still have to pack and clean up a little bit. Look forward to catching my next post in Europe, possibly Barcelona as we will be staying the day, maybe hitting up a disco with Juicler(Joey Schusler) and Rudy Rudy Rudy...Unrau, that night, and will be heading up to Andorra via private bus, thanks mike, the next morning. It's gonna be awesome, hopefully all of our baggage shows and I get some sleep tonight!!!
