When did you first join the ski club? Too damn long ago. I’m thinking 1990 or so. Mickie actually did the homework, got in touch, and contacted Pete. Probably before we even moved from Memphis.
Ski club offices held: None. I’m usually pretty busy painting.
Favorite ski resort? I’d have to say Banff. Absolutely gorgeous. As long as I can see out of both eyes, anyway, and stay away from gates!
What’s the best trip (traveling wise) you ever had?
Our NSC trips to Italy.
If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be?
