Made in the USA: Quality family time in Breckenridge, CO and the MSR Evo Tour 22 Snowshoes

My MSR's: All the way to the left.

Any time I get to spend with my family is the best time. I make no secret how close I am with my mother and father and little sister (and yes my two brothers when they are around). So when I get the chance to be with them, I chomp at the bit. That said, this past week (December 30, to be exact), I found myself in Breckenridge, CO to not only hang out with the fam but to also try out the MSR Snowshoes my dad got me for my birthday. Whoa, buddy… Killer.

So for the 6 mile hike we take, I am floating on the snow, all the while telling dad how he needs a pair of these. “And, Dad? They’re made in the USA… Double bonus!” After only minutes in my birthday present, he’s going to buy his own pair. USA! USA! USA!

And for a gratuitous, “This is why I really love my family life,” photo, read on,,,

…why you’d want to live here.

I think this pretty much sums up why Colorado is my home.

Of PJ’s in public and the only way to fly

Vodka Soda $5.

On my trip to Vegas last week, I sent out a Tweet re: wearing pajamas to fly and my extreme distaste for it. Seriously. I don’t get it. I understand the want to be as comfortable as possible 30,000 feet over the great U. S. of A., but come on. You look plain stupid in your Shrek bottoms and oversized Panama Beach sweatshirt. Call me stuck up, an ass, opinionated…whatever….I just am not a fan. Pajamas are for the bedroom. Keep them there.

That said, the $5 vodka/soda I enjoyed while suffering through the awkward and unfunny mess that is Gentlemen Broncos did make me feel better. Why something as stupid as pajamas at the airport gets to me, I haven’t the slightest. I should have been more concerned with the price of the breakfast burrito. Plan ahead next time…note to self.

Where a decent margarita hasn’t been found (yet): Breckenridge, CO

The food's decent.

The saying goes: If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. Well, that couldn’t have been truer this past weekend as in the small but well-known mountain town of Breckenridge, Colorado. Continue reading
