Snowboarding today
You may want to make judicious use of your scroll bar.

Most people bailed. Four within the last 24 hours.

Trying this out was interesting. I had a good time, but I can't say I really enjoyed snowboarding. I felt really awkward on the board. Not even in the I'm new at it way though I had some of that too. With both feet locked in, I felt like I was wearing those old style leg braces from the 1970s (maybe they still use em, but I haven't seen anyone with em since then). I really think I'd like skiing better. I will be making at least one more attempt at boarding though.

I fell 13 times. On one, I wacked my head pretty hard. Cleared my sinuses though that way. A huge wad of mucus plopped in the back of my throat. Another fall I hit hard enough that I bout peed myself. I mighta just a little bit. I had enough snow in my pants I couldn't really tell.

I flirted with one of the girls in the class. I didn't tell her the stuff from the previous paragraph.

I was really worn out by the whole experience. At the end, I was falling down just because I was so fatigued I couldn't keep my center of gravity anywhere close to where it should have been.

4 total. Me, Kim, Jeff, and Erin.

Don't take the 5 hours course if you are as out of shape as I am. Course, it's pretty hard to be that out of shape.

Try it again once or twice

The next time you go you'll be amazingly better -- it takes a while for your brain to integrate the board and how it works. You do have a helmet and wrist guards, right?

Oh, and you're allowed to stop and hang out in the lodge when you're too tired to have fun :)

Re: Try it again once or twice

Oh, I did hang out at the lodge. I definitely won't be boarding on weekends anymore though. Place was just too crowded.
