Daddy Like...

So here's one of the pictures I finally received from a friend of mine, who was obviously on the trip with us...since he took the picture. The picture is of me hitting my very first rail on a snowboard! You should've seen us before our first run at the rail, we were so nervous. Then, Marcus made it look so easy that I had to try. Once I rode it, then all the teens started trying. We all did really well considering. One of us took a nasty spill on the rail and almost broke his tailbone...thankfully he just bruised his pride, and hide.

The ski trip was amazing and all who went are itching to get back quickly. The place we went was really good, too. It's Monarch Resort outside of Salida, CO. I had never heard of this place, but it was/is AMAZING. I highly encourage you to go check it out. If you want to take a group, look up White Diamond Ski Tours...best service I've ever experienced!

All in all the trip was AWESOME, we had the best snowstorm hit on the final day and by the end of the day we were boarding in knee-deep powder!

Some of you will appreciate this. After our trip I was really wanting a "bad weather" board. So I hopped on ebay and bid on a two year old KEMPER board. I won! Total cost $18.02. $1 for the board and $17.02 S&H. Is that cool or what??? The board has one ding in it...other than that it looks like it has hardly been used. For those who need specs it's a Freestyle 155 Unkle Als Militia board.

Yeah, those Shewmaker boys make sports look really easy. You should hear them gripe the day after, they're closer to 40 than they admit and it does catch up after riding "Anthem Motor-cross" all day.

Congrats on your ebay score! Isn't it fun? Easy to see how people can get addicted to ebay. Now just be careful with that new toy of yours.

Glad you had fun on the ski trip. BTW, was it you that just about broke your tailbone? Just wondering.... You are crazy and I'm glad you survived. : )

I'm glad you had a great time with White Diamond. Tommy and Christi Query are the coolest couple and they get to do what most of us would love to be doing. I agree, their service is the best of any I've ever used. See ya in two weeks. the old guy
