I went sledding today for the first time in several years. We went to Edgewater and discovered that a plethora of earlier tobogganeers had packed the entire hillside into a perfect sledding slope. Anne had gotten her childhood sled from her parents place and she and Liam had picked up a cheapy plastic one from the store. The quality difference was obvious, the old wooden one had the foot tiller and metal runners and the plastic one looked like something you would baste an entire pig in. they both rocked going down the slopes.
to be a braggart, i must say that i was the best sledder there in regard to sled control and distance. although i was forced to eject several times do to a bad vector or unexpected turbulence, most of my missions were a success. Hauling my ass up the hill afterward was tedious though, since it was probably around 130 yards from where i usually ended up. it was a good workout, though right now i would like to do something to get me warm and thawed out. a cup of Earl Grey will have to do.
