New Home in the Mountains!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok Bears Look Like I'll have a new home just outside Park City on the way to Salt Lake City in the little Community of Summit Park. It will be about a 30to40 min drive to Snowbird/Alta about 10 min to Park City resorts less to the Canyons. In fact if you were into backcountry skiing, you could skin up to the backside of the Canyons from this place. I've done the hike in the Summer. So maybe I'll just have to get that AT set up this comeing season. My soon to be ex is buying me out of this place in Park City and I'll be buying my new place soon. I'm really looking forward to this. I can't wait to start my new life. So why should you care? Well I'll have an Apt to Rent. Special concideration to fellow Bears of course. It is vary private lower level unit. One bedroom new bathroom, small Kitchen. Your own deck or patio, lots of trees and a Moose that I have been told hangs out in the Winter. I mean how many places can offer a Moose at no extra cost? nice views to the East there is also an outdoor hottube. If all goes well I should be in by Aug and Apt should be ready by ski season.

LOL Alta, That reminds me of a time when i was living in Ca. My roomates father owned a ranch in Montana. He shoot a Moose one season and we got about 200 lbs of Moose meat. Some was gound meat. So we thought we would have a Big Party. We invited every girl we could think of and a few we didn't know at all. so there was some tenderized Moose steaks, our other roomate was italian so he made a Pasta with meatballs made from the Ground Moosemeat. Well There we are have a great time. One of the Girls ask what was in the meatballs, they were so good. Well Rich 1/2 drunk said they were MooseBalls. She turned white as a sheet and ran to the bathroom to gage herself. Rich ran after her but was to drunk to get the words out right that the meatballs were made from Moosemeat and not some poor Mooses Balls! How many Balls did she think a Moose had anyway? Needless to say she was never seen at another one of our Parties.

Good Luck Utah49. It all works out in the end. Just divy up the spoils, move to a place of YOUR choice and get amongst it on your OWN schedule.
