I lead an active lifestyle and love to run, bike, hike and kayak. As you can tell by screen name on here, I'm a non-skier. It's fine with me if you like to ski and I'll go with you on trips. But I just don't see the joy of packing 5 suitcases of really warm clothing, bundling myself up like an Eskimo and then tumbling down a frozen mountain while breaking several bones in the process----give me some place warm and tropical anytime!
I have two wonderful grown kids and being their Dad has easily been the most rewarding aspect of my life. I'm very close to my 21 y old daughter and 27 y old son. I've become an empty-nester which has allowed me to do more traveling and I'm going to take full advantage of it. I have over 1.3 million miles on my credit card and it's growing weekly-- I'd like to share them with someone other than my kids.
I've been called many things in my life but "ambivalent" isn't one of them.
I hope the old adage, "you get what you pay for" doesn't apply to this site!
