Saturday Jeremy and I headed over to Bluewood for a day of snowboarding. It was a rough start. First, we forgot our 2 for 1 ticket, and had to go back to the house to get it. Since we both forgot to charge our cell phones and don't have car chargers we headed to the store to pick one up. Jeremy forgot his keys so we had to turn around on the freeway to go home and pick them up. Then once we got to the store Jeremy accidentally set off the alarm and didn't have the code to turn it off. So after sitting there for about 10 minutes with the alarm blaring finally someone called back with the right code. And of course they didn't have chargers for either of our phones.
Then we were off, after a stop at Sunmart for a drink.
Once we got to Bluewood and started changing I asked Jeremy where my socks were.
"I didn't bring socks for you."
The night before I told him I didn't have socks and he said he had some for me- I assumed he would pack them. NOPE. And I didn't have a hat either. So lucky for us the lodge was having a buy 3 things and get 40% off sale. So after searching for a hat, finding some socks and a new stomp pad (I know I had one the last time we rode) we paid for everything and finished getting dressed.
Jeremy wasn't sure I was ready to go to the top after missing all last season and only going once the year before, so we took the tow rope up the bunny hill. I almost fell, but held on! After negotiating down the hill OK, we headed for the lift.
All in all it was a slow start but the day was so fun. Very windy, and it snowed all day but there was quite a bit of powder and not too much ice- which is important when you are falling as often as I am.
I'm getting better. Not once did I fall getting off the lift, and I usually could make it down the run only falling 3 or 4 times. I even slowly eased my way down a few hills with caution signs. I am still so sore and I can't really move my neck even after two days of recovery. But I can't wait to go again!! Anyone want join us??
