Meanwhile I'm trying to focus on the present and enjoy the late summer/early fall weather. I admit to logging onto SkiDiva and Epic daily, however. Also need to work my -ss off in Sept, Oct, and Nov so I can afford to take a day a week off from mid December through March to ski mid-week. Come mid-November I'm going to go crazy if we don't get an early start to the season here in New England.
We camped in Jamaica, VT last weekend (near Stratton) and saw lots of leaves a turnin.
