Drunken induced despondency

Like most people I enjoy a drink here and there, and a long time ago while in university I  used to enjoy many. Saturday night I joined some frenchies for a barbacue and some wine, many hours later I found myself quite tipsy and I silently exited stage left, so that I could get up and ski yesterday. But when I awoke, I was a little hung over but more I had lost my “joie de vivre”. There was so little in me that wanted to do anything, I simply wanted to curl up watch some movies and make time pass so I could head home. Alcohol, can be so much fun, yet so depressing the next day.All day I tried to summon my psych but nothing ever came, so I loitered and wasted a beautiful sunny day.

Got back after it today and skied 10 620 ft which was great, and now I have 3 days left before I head home. That is exciting!

Thanks to Gilles le skieur for his donation, gilles runs a blog in Switzerland and skis some gnarly lines. His website is

Also thanks to George/Hoarhey Myers, he is helping me get an article in the Chilean newspaper, it would be great to have an article in a language I cannot read!

    I know that feeling, Greg.
    It happened to me in Las Trancas as well.
    Curiously, it may have been the same group of frenchies!

    Way to get back on the horse!

    Oh and by the way, I’ll translate your interview back to English for you.
    Sergio is stoked for the interview.

    Right on Greg! keep given’er. I hope your timing for your return home is snowy otherwise you’ll just have to do laps on Mt Columbia till it snows somewhere or maybe you can “train” with the racers on Farnham Glacier 😉

    Humm….I think I also ran into these cousins of mine. I bet they work at MI Lodge.

    Keep on rocking man!
