Last summer I had the great and good fortune to go a Boeing Connexion flight. The net result of the trip was that about a dozen bloggers had a great day trip, and a wonderful adventure flying around Mt. Ranier and then to Walla Walla for dinner. We tested the Boeing technology, and determined it was great!
Boeing got some excellent press, we had a great time, and so following on the heels of one mutually successful adventure, a group of us have been invited by Colorado Ski Country to head for the slopes, check out their stuff, share ideas about blogging, and how it might impact what they are doing, etc.
I hope to be able to blog about my normal topics, but most importantly how about how Colorado Ski Country is using technology to improve the skiing experience for all of us.
My first stop earlier this week was at REI to pick up a new jacket and some powder pants. I haven’t been on the slopes for about 10 years, but I grew up on skates, and at one time could ski well enough to handle most of what a mountain could throw at me. I have been in the gym almost every day for the past month trying to get stronger and in better shape, and am really looking forward to the trip.
My pals DL Bryon and Steve Broback have already created the Bloggy Mountain High blog to memorialize the best parts of our trip and experience, and I have already subscribed in Onfolio. I have my camera and iPod packed, long johns and great socks, gloves and hat in hand, and just about ready to head for the airport.
If you are reading this somewhere in CO, come and ski with us, and teach me how to ski on fat skis as I need all the help I can get!
One of my pals here point out that I have a great life, I told him to start a blog! Write about the things you are passionate about and see where it leads.
