It's not just tucking in your shirts or sweaters

It's the way you tuck in your shirts & sweaters.

Tuck your undershirt under your your first layer pants, then your next layer over that but under your snow pants.

Sounds confusing reading it back, but basically layer the way you tuck in.

I'm anal about it, that's just the way it has to be with me. One of my buddies always bugs me that it takes me so long to get ready.
It doesn't seem long to me, that's just how long it takes

I usually bug him later in the day when his ass crack is hangin' out & he has ice crust attached to his sweater

Yeah, I missed that. Thanks for picking up on it!

There are a lot of nice people here. Some can be prickly at first, but it usually takes a while for everyone to get to know new members.

I hope you'll post back about your first day. It would be helpful to know what my nephew can expect. He's going to be 12 at the end of Jan. I planned on getting him out last year, but the season was terrible! (I posted about it here last season and everyone was super helpful, but having the perspective of kids his age would really help!)

I hope you have so much fun tomorrow

Backcountry: I've noticed your posts and much of what you've said so far has been helpful! Things I can keep in mind for when I take my nephew riding. I especially liked when you said it can be frustrating at first but gets real fun

And I like your avatar, too! (Who doesn't like cats?!)

Hope you both stick around here on the forum.

Have fun!
