Snowboarding 101

It's an interesting circle in life when your kids can inspire you to do things you would probably never try. It's also interesting, the paradox of the unknown; both scary and exciting. Saturday was International Ladies Shred day, which is a global event to get girls into snowboarding. Friday night, I spent quite a bit of time on You Tube reviewing snowboarding videos. It's a whole new world-the gear, the terminology, the skill set, the muscles I'm obviously not using, and the rush...when you finally get going, standing up and you can feel the glide of the board over the snow, sometimes touching, sometimes hovering, sometimes flying.
