Another Dream Realized: Mountain Views

A few years back, I developed a few 5-year goals. The first was to build a sauna in my basement, the second was to get a condo in the mountains and the third was to restore my old '66 21-window VW Bus. I finished the sauna earlier this year and I'm proud to say my 2nd goal has been achieved as of last week.

Views from Waterside West in Fraser, CO

As far as the last one, that's still a work in progress. If not this year, hopefully I'll be driving the bus around next spring. In the meantime, it's gonna be one helluva ski season. ;-)

Congrats Matt! Very cool. My housing goal will be a nice townhouse probably in Cary NC when the boys are on their own. I do love it when someone else cuts the grass and fixes the shingles. I would rather sweat on my bike or at the gym. What I want to do not what I have to do.
