Steamboat Day One…

IMG_7209

Things I learned today at Steamboat:

When people tell you that alcohol hits you faster here because of the altitude…they aren’t kidding.

For the most part, the population at large is made up of assholes.

Uggs are very popular, but are a bitch on shin splints.

Curtis Grimes is still as cute as a box of baby ducks, but doesn’t cover “Addicted to Love” in his set…even if you hollar it out.

The Midnight River Choir fella got his snow bibs at a thrift store for $4.

Gondola are scary.

Cody Johnson impressed the hell out of me and might be my new favorite artist, but I thought he’d be taller.

People go ape shit for the Turnpike Troubadours and they don’t give 2 craps if you want to take a picture or not…they are NOT moving.

I still can’t tell the Rankin Twins apart, I just pretend like I know which one is which when I am talking to them.

I miss taking pictures and realize how much I truly do enjoy watching music thru my camera lens.

If you have AT&T you are completely fucked!

Thom Shepherd has been nominated for a Grammy.

If you have low self esteem, come here because all the men are trashed and will tell you how beautiful you are right before they pass out.

Mando Saenz looks just like he did on Troubardour, Texas.

Males under the age of 30 really like to say the word legit.

The security lady on the top of the mountain bar doesn’t like Daisy.

That’s about it!  We had a great day, but I am POOOOOOOOOOPED.  Sleepy, sleepy time kids! See you in the morning.

    There is a secret staircase that helps getting in and out of the ballroom at the Grand when the lines are long. It leads up to the second floor. Scope it out….

    That is the ONLY way you can get in this year. They have it all blocked off.
