Ski Breckenridge, Colorado

Colorado is a beautiful state. You lend at Denver airport, and think how you have never seen plains so flet. Then you drive for 30 minutes and think how you have never seem mountains so large.

I skied Breckenridge - quite a nice, large, and diverse resort. I was hoping for some powder, but no luck this time. Peak 10 is steeper than the rest of the resort, almost only black trails, so (as usual) there is fewer skiers and the snow is better. For some reason, there are far fewer moguls on the trails of Colorado mountains than here in the east, but Peak 10 was up to the par.

Laura and Steve showed me around Denver by night. We had a very nice time. It would be so nice to live in the city with good nigth life, and only an hour away from some of the best skiing places in the country.

Wow! Skiing Breckenridge!? Lucky guy! I've never done that. Actually, I can't afford to travel much and I especially can't afford to go skiing in another state. You must be doing well, or someone you know must be doing well for themselves. Thank goodness the economy is doing so well and it is possible for you to go skiing in Colorado.

I was on a week-long business trip, skipping for a weekend ski trip.

Good on you! You must be having some succcess in your work. Dude, please do not feel guilty about success or money. The two are not evil. You should have no have guilt from your success that is based in hard work and sacrifice. I sense in your writing that are trying to asuage some sort of guilt simply because others do not have the same success. Enjoy the fruits of your labors and volunteer to help the needy, but don't try to change too much of the thing that made it possible for you to have some success. There's a reason you're in the United States. It's a good place to be and succeed. Dont go chanhging it into some sort of "socialist workers' paradise." (By the way, this is what I meant by screwing up Europe. They've created an enormous tax burden for the younger people. They have created a pension system and a bloated government that is not sustainable inthe long run. That's why Bush' over spending bothers me so much.)
