Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

Sorry it has taken so long to reveal how the skoolies beachin it at the basin went. Unfortunately my camera suffered a life-ending drop the day before the event......so no pics. But alas the event went off without a hitch! The hotub buried in the snow being run off a solar assisted high-efficiency boiler was a hit! The local resort network was there doing interviews as well as 9news from Denver! There were ample pork tenderloins being served next to 2 fine german kegs of brew! A mere few feet away there were many more kegs of the sierra variety. The weather was partly cloudy but definitely not cold and a blast was had by all. The resort was on our side for next year after viewing the concious set-up that we had kicking! The tunes were all being run off another solar demo trailer provided by Alternative energies of Colorado. I guess I should also plug the Heatmeister and his trailer which was running the tub. We kept a steady 106-109 degrees all day. The camp next to us provided the entertainment of a costume ball complete with a stripper-pole and a stripper-cage! The party got pretty wild for at least a couple of times the tops came off and hooting and a hollerin' intensified. The free lift tickets were a great help from the resort. Hopefully next year we will be holding it a week or two later so as to take advantage of increased popularity. Like I said before....We're gonna do what they say can't be done! For those that crave a "gathering" of the skoolies, this should be on your agenda! The weather is on everybody's side for it is not "overheating" weather. The mountains of Colorado are as beautiful as they can be with the white coating set against the green pines and contrasted with the Blue skies which in my experience is always more blue at high altitude. I'll be setting plans for next year and you should too! We were kinda thinking that a slip and slide with wetsuits would be a nice addition. Kansas is more central but Colorado is a lot more diverse of a landscape to use as your destination. However if someone wants to actually get something going in Kansas then I'll recruit the Colorado WVO crowd to show up. Wilson Lake wouldn't be bad....it has tons of fairly decent spots and beaches and boating/fishing opportunities to be harvested. Wherever it happens lets just do it! RECYCLER

Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

I found a video that summit county t.v. shot at the basin this last April 11th. www.sctv10.com is the web site. If you click the summit county link and then go to the high country conservation center section it is the most recent episode. The show is on the whole setup that we had going that day. The segment covers quite a bit so be patient as it tours through the booth and then hottub and then into my bus tour. Let me know if you have trouble finding it. There is a lot of info from the solar demo trailer to the way intense high efficiency boiler trailer that was running the tub. Lots of fun with people who do what is right! Give me some feedback people and don't hold your typing tongues!

Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

I watched all four segments of the April "Green Show, " after seeing the Mountain Mentors video from the following week's party by mistake.

The bus is featured in segment 2. A direct link to that segment is: http://www.sctv10.com/recent/green/s...%20Segment%202

Comments? The guests were pretty cool, but listening to the hosts was like fingernails on a blackboard. Sorry.

BTW, I thought Floyd Robertson and Earl Camembert did all the news reports for SCTV. Did Guy Caballero or Edith Prickley fire them?

Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

Thanks for posting the direct link redbear! I didn't know how. It is funny the how the call sign is the same and the acting is similar as well! hehe! The girls don't get much airtime......or at least, they don't have a script. They were also drinking beer at the time. For that matter everyone on the segment was drinking beer! Not to mention your lips don't work right when it is cold! hehe! It sure was a fun day though and I hope more people plan on coming next year. It is a great time to travel as it isn't tourist time yet and the roads are clear!
