My parents drove so they could move stuff back for me (along with a rented UHaul AND my SUV - I have a lot of stuff). Some friends flew in early to Reno, but six flew in to Sacramento a day later. Ashley (a friend who flew in earlier) made the two hour drive with me to Sacramento to pick them up. It was a JAM PACKED car, and of course I got pulled over for speeding back in Incline Village. The officer didn't believe that I actually had 8 seatbelts in my car, but after shining some flash lights around and being satisified, he did let me off with just a warning. (Add it to my list of warnings...) We enjoyed some time in the hot tub that night (and doing snow angels - bad idea).
I really worked hard to make sure it would be a cheap trip for everyone. My boss let us stay at his penthouse condo at Northstar (with 5 bedrooms / 10 beds), and a couple of ski school friends helped me get skis and boots for everyone coming! I even secured some free ski passes from my boss' friend! Now that's what I call a
