Remember those pics from a couple of days ago... skiing in the grass, and biking in the cold? Remember I promised to 'fess up?
OK, this is so.o.o.o.o bizarre you may not believe it, but here we go. The Canyons Resort in Utah is offering $40,000 to some person to come stay there, try out a bunch of things, and blog about it for four months. Part of the application was a 2-minute video that answered the question "How Do I Mountain?" They defined the verb "to mountain" as to find physical and emotional satisfaction in the out-of-doors. It also had to show why we are qualified to share those experiences with the world.
So, if you want to see two minutes of an ego extravaganza, push the play button! The finalists haven't been announced yet. I would be beyond astounded to be selected for this, but it's something I just had to try for.
I'm going to be out of town for the next few days, working for a friend. I'm trying to get some posts set up to publish automatically, because I'll have limited access to the internet, at best.
So, don't forget to enter the contest, and I'll see you "in person" if possible... otherwise, scheduled posts.
