January 23, 2019 Ski for Light bonfire

Today, Jay and I shortened our time again.  We have to give the race committee our estimated time for the race tomorrow.  The person who comes closest to their estimated time wins the trophy.  We had chili and pork sandwiches for lunch.  They treat us well out there.  You have to be careful not to over eat.

On Wednesday’s there is a bonfire at the ski area.  Afterwards, Gordy Pratt and 2 other local guys played music in the tent.  We hung out for awhile before heading back into Deadwood.  Don, Bev and I just hung out the room I shared with Bev visiting.  Long gone are the days of closing the bars.
