Santa Barbara/Point Mugu/Lone Pine

This was written a few days ago...
After getting back from Whistler we had the pleasure and honor to drive up to Santa Barbara to see some amazing folks get hitched. Mike and Lisa are now MR. AND MRS. SCHAFER!! And damn did they look good. 'Twas a great time for all. 










Off to Naval Base Point Mugu where we scored another beachfront RV spot with hookups. Ended up extending for 3 nights as it was nice to finally enjoy the RV and get it organized better. Plus one of the days was a total wash because there was a massive wind storm (part of a national advisory!), it was so windy we couldn’t be outside. Might as well have been snowed in. Was still fun though to have quality time with our little family unit all together. 




Whistler

Whistler was amazing! The people there are so nice. It's very international with tons of people from Australia, NZ, Ireland, England. The skiable terrain is MASSIVE and there is no way you can ride it all in one day. The conditions were spring skiing ideal at their best. Sunny and blue clear skies for days with vast mountain range views. Between Sage's Omama and Opapa (Gramps) and a local babysitting service we were able to ride together a lot! Shout out to Mama Ba aka Omama aka Barb for being my custom boot fitter (thats actually her job at California ski Co in Berkeley! score!) and helping make my feet not be in such excruciating pain.
We also got to get in some quality time with the Dillmann’s, Nik’s Aunt, Uncle and cousins from Michigan. Those girls are freaking machines! They ski all day (they average 30,000 vertical feet) and then go on a 5 mile run after the lifts close. I mean talk about fitness goals!? Nik and I could do one top to bottom run (5,000 vertical ft), and …

Life is what happens when you are busy making plans

Well the saying "life is what happens when you are busy making plans", couldn't be more true for us these days! We've made a lot of plans for the next 5 months....and a lot of them we aren't able to do right now. Plan for now was to live here in SLT (South Lake Tahoe) for 5 weeks and go snowboarding every day....exploring Heavenly, Kirkwood, Squaw/Alpine, Northstar. After all we have both Epic and Ikon passes (!!!). But...life happened. Nik has minimal use of his arms currently and my foot stress fracture seems to be rearing its grisly head again. Like that word? I originally had the word ugly but then looked up synonyms because I felt ugly didn't describe how I felt about it well enough. Grisly means causing horror or disgust, haha! Thats how this foot pain feels...it limits my ability to simply walk outside in the beautiful trees and snow without feeling pain! :( Ok my sob story is over.



Last week we had the pleasure of Sage's grandparents Mark and Barb…
