snowboarding in vt with brendan, lili, and neal

Monday, March 18th, 2013

I haven’t updated this in a while because I’ve been busy redoing one of my real sites, but here’s some fun stuff that happened last month (I think?). I got the photos back and put them in an album but didn’t scan em. Sup

I went up to Stratton with Brendan, Lili, and Neal. I haven’t seen Bren and Lili in a minute, but I hadn’t seen Neal in about  or 4 years maybe. It was the first time I rode in a while too, because I didn’t go at all last year, and maybe went once the year before.

I borrowed Bren’s extra board, or his friend’s or something, and used the boots that I have which are about 10 years old. Pretty funny shit. The snow was actually pretty nice. It was a holiday weekend at Stratton so the crowd was pretty sizable but not to the point where I wanted to punch anyone

The weather the first day was super nice, it was cold, but not horrible.

The lines were a bit outrageous yeah but whatevs. We had a good time chattin. One thing I noticed is more and more helmets are on the mountain these days. I guess the whole Sonny of Sonny and Cher thing really did change people’s opinions on it? Hey can you see who’s in line with us?

Captain America. Wut?

We got some deal where we stayed at the lodge that they never renovate. I personally don’t give a shit because I  just needed a place to sleep, but man.. a loooot of people probably get bummed out when they arrive. A bed and a TV is all I need, but other people would flip their shit

Eliot came along and was a cool guy. Aside from when he kept waking us up the first night. He was obviously a little antsy in this new place and was burrowing under the bed Neal and I were in. Hey, check out that stain I just noticed now HA

Moustache Beardo guy over here

The second day was muuuuch colder. We went out on one run altogether but it was so cold Lili and Neal had it. The wind was pretty brutal, but if my face was covered I was alright. Bren and I decided to stay on and do a few more runs. I think we lasted until about lunch time and decided to make a break while the traffic wouldn’t be insane. I did want to ride more because I doubt I’ll go too much more this season but my knees are ten years older than they should be, and the cold was annoying so fug it.

This guy. What a cutie.

We got back on the road and headed for home. I miss yous guys, we need to hang more!
