I picked Larkin up at his house about 12:30 p.m. and we started off towards Mammoth Lakes for a weekend of skiing at Mammoth Mountain. Debating whether we should go from there through Reno or South Lake Tahoe, I think that we made a tactical error and chose Reno. We ended up getting caught up in a lot of traffic in Reno and Carson City.
We got to Mammoth Lakes about 6:00 p.m. and met up with the rest of the group at the condo. There are six guys skiing together tomorrow with several more people expected either late Friday or on Saturday. I have skied off and on with this group since 1994 at both Mammoth and around Tahoe. Most years since then, I have spent a weekend in March skiing with this crowd or in Arizona for spring training with the Davis Mafia.
My excitement for the evening was that I drew the high card and got my chose of bedrooms. I took the big master suite with a king size bed!
We had dinner at Gumpy's Sports Restaurant. After dinner, Larkin and I spent some time configuring our laptops to attach to the wireless access point in the condo building. The group crashed early with plans to be on the slopes at 8:30 a.m. when the lifts start running.
