So there I am about to throw up. I mean I am having vision problems, I can't breath, I'm sweating profusely and on the verge of complete body shut down. I vividly remember having experienced this exact feeling before when in two-a-days in football summer practice I almost won the iron man competition. Why do you ask was I in such a state today, the flu maybe, no more like a fever, ski fever!
I was feeling sick because I spent two straight hours destroying the upper part of Alpental this morning, I actually accomplished the feat of skiing myself sick. Basically, there was just a lot of new powder and I met a cool (albeit bad ass skier) guy on lift that decided to take me on a personal tour of his favorite secret spots of Alpental. With new snow, long skis and a belly full of coffee I skied until my body gave out. It was amazing, clear skies, most people think that Snoqualmie/Ski Acres/Alpental is lame, but today on the top around almost 6000 feet I realized that Alpental is the best kept secret in Washington. So much terrain, so much back country, so much fun! Enough Said.
Onto reflections from last post, thank you SerialStar for the suggestions. Good Thing/Good Thought/Good Quote of the Day or Week is a GOOD idea. I will try to work that in.
Today's Good Thing: Blue Powerade. This is by far the most effective and comprehensive hang over cure as well as delicious electrolyte restorer known to man (orange original Gatorade coming in close second). Of course it has to be ice cold so that you can feel that icy smooth goodness save your soul as it goes down. Upon my return to the parking lot today from the hill I slammed a blue Powerade myself and it restored me to funtionality.
Today's Good Thought: A Good Summer takes Good Planning. Most people don't realize it but planning the most epic summer of your life starts now, so start getting those party funky crazy dancing ducks in a row right now.
Today's Good Quote: There are two types of people in the world those who finish what they start...
Today's Good Band: Hard to pick but its Definitely what I was rockin on the way up to the slopes, a sweet reggae band called GROUNDATION. With many many albums already they are one of the most "Bob Marley" like reggae acts I've heard in a while with lyrics like "Music is the Most Hiiiiiiigh." Oh yeah get your summer on early and check em out.
Anyways, be cool my babies
