Busy day at work today, putting out fires and creating some of my own.
Got a chance to watch some luge today… TV does not do this sport justice, the ‘lugers’ are going extremely fast. I tried taking some pictures with my Nikon D90 on high-speed and could barely capture the guy!
After work; Paul and I went to the “Re-Use” store at Function/Junction, near Creekside. We were both able to find skis, boots, and helmets. Unfortunately Paul wasn’t wearing his when I dropped a bunch of skis on his head. He didn’t quite go down for the count but I was getting ready to find someone who knew CPR just in case! Can’t wait ’till we get to the slopes, I can just imagine how much damage we’ll cause… to ourselves.
How much does used ski equipment cost you might ask? $58, including tax. That got me Atomic skis, Marker bindings, and Salomon boots, we just need poles but Paul will be making a trip into the forest to find some nice saplings. Paul had to have better equipment than mine so his cost around $80. I think he’s jealous of my fancy purple ski boots…
