Off to Breckenridge for Some Skiing

I got a call from Big Ed, he is a relative of Margarite’s, he had heard I was in the United States and wanted to see if I was up for some Skiing. I was about to head back to Botswana, but what the hell. So I said sure, Big Ed had a time share with his wife and his wife could not make it ( I think she is in the KGB) so Big Ed invited me. All I had to do was get there. The travel was going to be an issue, I had been away from home for a little over a month now and my policy of not playing much poker while I traveled was killing by travel kitty. I knew that playing poker while I was not focused was not a good thing, but going broke paying for my travel habit was worse. So I played a little poker this week and it turned into a very nice week, winning over $200.00.

The $200.00 might pay my expenses, but how was I going to get there, I had been hanging on the east coast living off some old friends, now I need to buy a plane ticket. Then I remembered Austin. Austin is my nephew that is also a pilot that happens to love to ski. So I made a deal with Austin, you fly me to Breckenridge and I will take care your housing. Since Big Ed all ready had that covered I was good to go. So off to Breckenridge we go.
