Skiing trip to Chestnut Mountains -- Galena Illinois
As my guys winter break are coming to an end, we decided to take a little trip to Chestnut Mountains to go skiing and snowboarding. The night before I had a nightmare that I couldn't stop at the bottom of the slopes and crashed... well, it has been a while, but how hard could it be? they says that it is like riding a bike, you never forget .... well, as soon as I tried to go down the bunny hill I fell and could not get up. I needed a friend to push me up. Well,I thought maybe a little lesson will re-fresh me.... So, I took a beginners lesson with son #1 since this was his first time on skis.....he did great, never crashed.... me on the other hand...."get out of my way, get out of my way..." was loudly heard in front of me, oh yeah it was me screaming to get all the little kiddies to move so that I won't crash into them.. my nightmare did come true... never learned to stop... just crashed... fell off the lift and got run over. My son #2 did great, only second time on the snowboard and he took off with his friend down the vertical slopes... wow.... He just waved and disappeared.... mean time... I had to concentrate so not to crash and "hands in front... hands in front.." was my mantra for the day...
