    From The Slopes To The Beach On The Same Day

    I'm very fortunate to live where I do. The mountains are close by & the beach is even closer.  A couple of friends and I came up with the idea to go skiing and then go swimming in the ocean on the same day.The 3 of us stayed at my friends house in the mountains for the weekend...

    I Love Both!

    Between The Two.

    I have to have myself evenly distributed between the two. My dad says there's a big lake or something in Wisconsin that's like an ocean that if I ever wanted to move there it would probably work. If I remember what he said right. lol We talked about so many places that it kind of...
