So I nearly met you guys.
Was about 10 chairs behind you when you tried to load seven on the six pack. Was that Saltyant who stepped aside and rode alone behind you? Don't really know who I recognized, but definitely was sure it was at least a few I've seen ics of. Figured, this is it! Finally going to say hello after all these years....
Put the hammer down, maybe gained a chair or two. Couldn't really think of anything to yell - like "hey, you guys up there! I know you from the internet!" Ha....but what if I was wrong?!?!?! Thought maybe you guys would stop to chat at the top, but off again trying to catch you - I think blazed down challenge again, maybe razors...or maybe it was the other way around...but anyway, lost some time on you that run, then, third time in, my ticket wouldn't scan and I had to chat with the lift in tie dye.
And just like that, the dream was over. Another day at Blue - maybe a season, without saying hello.
I was speaking with one woman on the lift later, and she was talking about how she lives 4 miles from blue, and tailgates with people she met years ago....I was thinking...maybe ...so I referenced the PASAR and she looked at me like I was a leper. She said she hangs with the old transformer crowd. Something about a parking spot near the transformer. She was super friendly.
On the way out, saw two large tailgates but didn't recognize any jackets from the morning encounter. But sounds like that might have been you guys.
Early runs were bone chattering - GSS called it. Got better around 11 and was down right fun after 12.
Have a good party tomorrow. See you next year?
