    Or even worse, the great deals come out after you already have a (much) more expensive ticket booked.

    I got your email - will respond this afternoon. I usually go to Sugarbush / Bolton / Stowe / Jay. There is a three days for $99 deal at Stowe in the most recent issue of TWS - you just rip out the page and take it to the ticket office. Bolton is cheapest, but boring. I'm not 100% myself so no worries there.

    See, you didn't really want to revive this thread, you just wanted your pipes cleaned. Well mister, since you are getting married, I'd think you two can take care of that yourself!

    Hey Noah, congratulations! I know that you were looking for wedding advice from a different Dan, but seeing as I got married this June, I thought I'd chime in.

    The last thing that my wife and I wanted was a huge Hollywood production, but given that there's 50+ aunts, uncles, and cousins on my mom's side of the family alone, there wasn't any way for us to get our invite list under about 140 (of those, about 110-120 actually came). When you're dealing with numbers like that, it inevitably becomes a big deal, and costs mount in a truly disturbing way.

    By the time we saw where things were going, it was too late to cut back - deposits had been placed, and guests had booked tickets, hotels, etc. We racked our brains and finally decided to split up the wedding and the reception. We made the wedding a private ceremony with just immediate family (n=10), and used the venues we'd booked for the wedding for our reception instead.

    This worked beautifully. The wedding itself cost us around $2,000, including our outfits, a fee to the minister (who's our neighbor), an incredibly nice dinner afterwards, and renting a bicycle rickshaw for the happy couple to ride away on after the ceremony. We got married in a city park near our house that we ride our bikes past every day, which we love.

    And the reception? The reception was great, a really fun weekend. (photographic evidence below.) But, if we were doing it over, we have agreed that we would much rather have spent that money on a massive month-long honeymoon during which we visited all our family and friends around the world.

    (That way, we'd have had enough left over for me to buy a Coiler AM-T )

    I've never had good luck with women who live in resort areas, and my female friends say the same about guys. Just a thought though...look for "men" and forget the "boys". :-)

    Valentine's Day Ideas

    So I got this email today from a legit Vegan company that I like. They're a little kooky, which is why I like them. GREAT sense of humor. Anyway, they have these available on their web site for V-Day gift ideas. Guys? Price is right too at only $14

    I'm dating somebody else in ski school. No clue if its going to last.

    My Level I Examiner and Level II clinician/coach just got engaged to a girl I think he met through ski school two years ago. Maybe it just depends on where you work.

    And what you are looking for in another person. I have a few friends that met through ski/board school, but for me, the partying-every-night days are pretty much over for me. It's much harder to find someone that does not want to just go to the bar, a party, etc or sit around stoned every night playing play station/wii/nintendo etc. That's par for the course in Summit.

    Holy crap Michelle...it's worse than I thought...no wonder you said "tell me something I don't know"

    Have you tried any dating sites and specifically stated that if any of that is part of a potential date's life, then don't bother to apply? Or is that a guaranteed way to get NO responses?

    HA HA should do. Pretty much will get no results, at least not in Summit. If I went elsewhere, I'd have to drive at least 1 1/2 hrs....
