Got up to Crystal for a bit this morning. Got there at 9 (was at my mom's place last night), drove thru some crazy bad roads but it was worth it. Several inches of fresh on top of that corduroy that Chomps loves so much. Was first tracks or close to it on several runs and the glades were the best I've been in all year. It was just tremendous. To hell with having fresh corduroy to myself, I'll have the pow please. (just giving you a hard time Chomsy boy)
On a bummer note, my older brother and only sibling is at the hospital up in Munson (Traverse) right now. They sent him there via ambulance from Manistee because the hospital there couldn't do the surgery he needed to remove infectious tissue and fluid from his chest cavity. Sounds like he's there for at least another several days. He has downs syndrome and lots of health issues. Fuck I'm stressed, but the couple hours of riding was therapeutic for me today.
My uncle's in the same hospital right now in a coma too, he's only 57. It's like WTF man?
Oh and Evilball, you're a dad, wear a helmet bro.
....I never said I "Loved
" corduroy? What I said was
, I do love it when the groomers are soft n fresh. Not all hard and icy! The board will ride really sweet in that, cutting and carving nice deeply grooved lines in the stuff! Falling on that hard icy shit is like falling on a cheese grater!
I'll take a few inches (...or more!) of fresh over corduroy ANY
day! But how often do we get that down here? More to the point, How often do we get it where I can get out to the local to enjoy it?? Seems it's always falling when I'm working/driving!
So, best case, the next day I'm usually stuck with the groomed remains! That being the case, It's great when I can manage to get it all to myself for a while!
Headed out this morning to see if I get the place to myself again!
On a serious note,.. sorry to hear about your family's health troubles! Pos vibes for their recovery!
(....without snowboarding to relieve some of my stress? Well, can you spell Water Tower!
