Last week we headed out to infamous Georgetown, Colorado. You are familiar with our happy place from previous posts.. We left Overland Park around 5:30 pm Wednesday evening. Billy was so amped to get there he drove all the way through! We arrived at the condo around 3:30 am Mountain time. Once we unloaded the Suburban we toasted to our favorite skiier and the custom flasks Steph had made for us.
This year we hit the slopes at Copper Mountain. Copper is one of Billy's favorite spots, we figured why not let Steph redeem herself from a few years ago when she was failing and only made one run down the mountain. It was pre-blog but let's say Steph had to dig a hole in the snow on the side of the mountain...just use your imagination to fill in the dots.
So much shredding, snowboarders and tubers alike.
We had to make our way to Breckenridge Brewery & Pub for the awesome soy glazed edamame and a round of Vanilla Porters. The Vanilla Porters really taste better there. Honestly they also taste delicious when you purchase them at Lukas Liquor. After edamame and Vanilla Porters there is always time for Human Jenga!
Cody joined us for his first snowboarding experience. He was pretty good, he made Leslie and I look like we were not professionals. Super rude of him.
Rounding out a day on the mountain at Mother's Saloon is a fantastic idea! We recommend Mother's to anyone visiting Georgetown. Show up with your coin purse full of quarters, you will own that pool table and juke box. From Steph the pool hustler to Greg the Buffalo and Leslie riding a random Ram, Mother's never disappoints!
When Unfiltered Adventure gets together there is never a dull moment. Amongst all the laughs and good times it is certainly nice to stop and enjoy some new scenery. We love these mountains.
It is clear we had too much fun and did a lot of celebrating but the peak of this trip to Georgetown was sitting at Guanella Pass Brewery when Steph walked through the door with a look of relief and pure happiness on her face after taking a call from the vet who had been trusted with Big Brown's care. We all cried a little, cheered emphatically and shared a toast in Badger's honor. He truly is an OG.
Until next time Georgetown, we will be back for that baked potato.
