Our goal was to find the cheapest ski lodge my buddy and I could find as well as hit the slopes, then at the time – some 20 years ago at this point – Ed as well as I had entirely little money… My associate and I did have skis, as well as gear, as well as enough gas money to get the best slopes in this part of CO, and halfway up the mountain our automobile stalled out, as well as then skidded off the road into an embankment, the automobile was seasoned as well as problematic anyway, so instead of calling for a wrecker Ed as well as I decided to pack up our gear as well as keep walking up the mountain.
My associate and I were just outside of Denver, with no way to get back home, however our top priority was to ski! 24 hours later my buddy and I were hoofing it back into town carrying our ski gear because my buddy and I no longer had a ride.
Thankfully Denver takes care of its visitors, as well as my buddy and I found a local hostel with a room my buddy and I could afford. The next day Ed went out to explore the part in Denver, as well as try to score some cannabis for us. At this time cannabis was not yet legal in Denver, however it still wasn’t hard to find… In fact, Ed scored some extra cannabis on spec, so my buddy and I could sell it around Denver as well as make a little extra money; Ed as well as I became Denver ski bums, living day by day, as well as hustling to make enough money to hit the slopes again. Ed as well as I lived in Denver for roughly six months, as well as to this day I consider it the most fun I’ve ever had.
