Every year Dick and his Java Posse friends (Carl, Joe and Tor) go to Crested Butte, CO to do a 'Un-conference'. This year, the girls (Me, Tracy and Jill) decided to go with them. Sean, Carl and Tracy's son also came with us.
On Sunday morning we got up at 3 AM, (which was actually 2 AM as the clocks had just moved forward) to catch a shuttle to take seven of us to San Jose airport. As predicted we got there way too early but were on our flight to Salt Lake City at 6 AM. The airport there was very busy for a Sunday morning. Another short flight took us to Gunnison, Colorado.
The boys had booked a slightly different house than normal, and it turned out to be really nice. First we went to lunch at the Ginger Cafe and had some cocktails :-)
Dick had a beer but ended up with a cocktail umbrella on his glass.
On Monday the boys went to geek for the entire day, so the girls decided to go and learn the basics of cross country skiing and after much laughing and falling over, we had a great time.
On Tuesday, the boys geeked in the morning while we explored a bit. In the afternoon, a large group of people from the conference went cross country skiing together. It was really warm, but the views were unbelievable..
