Bitter Sweet

On Thursday, May 10, Yang and I ended the snowboarding season with one last glorious day at Mt. Bachelor. We were fortunate enough to get a couple of season passes for free from another buddy of mine and since our firm is doing more work in the Bend area, we were able to work and put in some good days on the mountain. We had some killer powder days and some nice spring riding.

The last day was perfect. The sun was shining, the weather was warm, the snow conditions were great and we rode until we could hardly walk. Since it was the last day, we decided to take our cameras. At first, we were just taking still pictures and then we decided the we needed some video. Yang took some video of me going off a jump and then wiping out. We thought it was funny. However, the funniest video came on the next run where Yang went off a jump and proceeded to crash. While he was trying to recover he was yelling "stop the camera!" Of course I couldn't stop the camera, I had to get the whole thing. Everytime we watch the video, we laugh. In fact, I think it gets funnier everytime I see it. We'll have to see if we can post it on You Tube or something because everyone should enjoy it.

Now the ski racks are off of the car and my board is now stowed in the attic just waiting for the snow to fall on the '07-'08 season. There is only one other thing that I enjoy more than snowboarding. If I could find a way to combine the two, I'd be the happiest person on earth.
