Memorial Day Weekend

Had a great time sleeping in and breaking in the new grill.

Enjoy the pics.
-Garvin (^_^)

p.s. Kalbi Beef Recipe Below:
4 boneless rib-eye steaks, each about 1/4 inch thick 
For the beef and marinade:

4 boneless rib-eye steaks, each about 1/4 inch thick
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons sake, rice wine, or sherry
2 tablespoons Asian (dark) sesame oil
8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
4 scallions, both white and green parts, trimmed and minced
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl and whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Arrange steaks in
one layer in a baking dish. Pour the marinade over them, cover, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Preheat the grill to high. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate.

Remove the steaks from the marinade and drain. (Discard the marinade.) Put the steaks on the hot grate and grill,
turning with tongs, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer the meat to a cutting board and let rest for 2
minutes. Slice across the grain.

Ski Weekend + Uber Goggle Test Run

Sunday: This weekend rocked. Becka decided to come along too. Holiday Valley was super icy, still fun. The goggles
rocked. It took a little while to get used to wearing goggles again. The 45 MPH it record at Holiday Valley was a hiccup.
After, skiing we went to Ellicottville Brewing Company (EBC) for dinner.

Monday: Day two, I went to ski Holimont, which is closed to the public on weekends. It snowed the night before and there
was fresh snow everywhere. The skiing there was phenomenal. At most there were no more than 40 people on the hills.
I did manage to record a couple 35 MPH runs Winking After a good 21 runs, Becka and I hit the road for home.

The goggles are AMAZING! They just updated the syncing software, so when you upload your data it will know what
resort you were at. I put a couple screen shots of the HUD and the syncing software.

Enjoy the pics and comic.
-Garvin (^_^)

p.s. Will see how long I can keep the comics coming Winking
p.p.s. Yes, I know there is no iPhone5... that's the joke.

Happy New Year!

Yep continuing the comic theme blogging.

Happy New Year! Enjoy the pics.
