I've already got my personal day for approved Fri.. I'll b headed that way early Fri. morning for a 3 day weekend. I hope they get DUMPED on right up till Sat.!!! gonna try and hit Highlands, Nubs & B. Mnt. before I leave!!

BTW, I was WAY over due for a "biff" like yesterday's! Lately, I've been ramping up my speeds, doing harder runs, I learned to go & link turns toe-side while riding switch, I've even done a dozen or so entire blue runs riding switch from top to bottom. All without catching an edge, or a single major fall!! So I was "Definitely" due for a bit of humbling!! Lol!!!

I finished out the day just riding and doing a little "spinning"! Linking 360 degree spins, around and around on the mellower part of the slope, just to fine tune my "Edge" awarness!! It's funny, Yesterday was the very first time I ever tried to spin like that. Now that I can "manage" a little switch riding, I thought I'd give it a try. It went really well! No falls! (My ass is thankful for that today!!)
