WINTER


VAIL RESORTS made this trip possible for our family of 6 at a massive EPIC PASS military discount. We never would have managed this trip without the EPIC PASS!

Vermont ski and snow at Christmas from a Sony Alpha 7 rii, a GoPro Hero7 Black, and a fabulous Karma Drone. Warning! Bring puzzles and playing cards because TMobile is woefully inadequate here. NO Service. All the way down the mountain to Boston.

WIFI at the base lodges at Jackson Gore and Sitting Bull at Okemo Mountain Resort. We love the family without the smart phones. But! The rare moments of wifi were our saving graces. We all work online in some form or another. And we lost each other several times on the mountain skiing without phone service. Luckily there is an endless supply of food and drink available any base lodge you get to, with the EPIC PASS you can load on to the family credit card. Be warned. The kids will use this service.

VAIL RESORTS CELEBRATES 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE EPIC PASS BY HONORING THE ARMY’S 10TH MOUNTAIN DIVISION AND MEN AND WOMEN OF THE U.S. ARMED FORCES, AS WELL AS SERVICE MEMBERS OF CANADA AND AUSTRALIA, WITH A SPECIAL MILITARY EPIC PASS AND USD$1.5 MILLION IN CONTRIBUTIONS TO VETERAN ORGANIZATIONS Continue reading WINTER

We bought the lens for the show. It’s not the best investment. We haven’t paid it back yet! How to be disciplined with buying equipment is something we are only JUST NOW learning. I need a Shark Tank shredding! Lucky for us our credit score is FANTASTIC. So plenty of lenders….zero percent! DISCIPLINE needs to be applied there too. … Continue reading Sharp Focus
