Seeing Aspen Through a Teenager’s Eyes

It has been a long time since I have actually written about the children of Aspen Real Life, this is directly attributed to the fact that the teenagers get soooo pissed off if they are remotely aware that I am writing about them (I really don’t think they understand that I have been writing about them for over nine years), but yesterday while driving Thumper up to school, I drilled the reality in to that beautiful thick haired head of his that if we successfully monetized Aspen Real Life, we could conceivably have a whole lot more money AND if anyone was going to put Aspen Real Life on the map, it would be he and his friends. This gave pause for reflection as dirt bikes, new skis and sick ski clothes flashed before him. The magnitude of how life could change for him got his wheels spinning and he accepted my phone that I was offering him and began his live broadcast on my Periscope channel, an app that has somehow not crossed he and his fast rat pack of friends.

And now for a little disclaimer, if you  watch his broadcast it’s possible that he may offend with his teenage rhetoric and if you get angry over his content, feel free to comment your heart away over here. Please keep in mind, he’s a sixteen year old and your comments may only fuel his fire and deepen his convictions.

So tell me teenagers of the Roaring Fork Valley, what do you want to see on Aspen Real Life? Want to be featured for some incredible idea you have or a feat that you have accomplished? Working on achieving a goal? Let us help you!!
