After I said this blog was restarting, I went on vacation to eat Turkey, watch football and hot tub at Chico HotSprings with my family, and subsequently didn’t write anything. But I do have one excuse, I caught the death flu and have been recovering since. I was able to catch this super stomach bug and give it to my child, wife, mother, and mother in law in that order. The first 4 affected were able to enjoy some Thanksgiving dinner, but not my wife’s mom. Getting sick sucks especially when you just pass it around to everyone else. But enough of that.
As for the snowboarding, none was had. My board rode on the top of my car for 10 days, but didn’t touch any snow. I wasn’t able to fit riding the early season snow in Montana in the schedule. But I did pick up some new gear. I went with the GNU Argo “step in” bindings. Last step ins I used were the K2 Clickers on my very first snowboard, and those almost made me stick with skis. So lets hope these work better.
I was able to check out the shop for the @PHARNORTHCREW in Bozeman. American sourced, cut, designed apparel. The wife and I will be warmer, hopefully there will be some more collaboration with the pharnorth guys in the future.
One thing for sure though. Montana skies are 33.7% bigger than Utah skies and 23% bigger than Idaho’s, I measured it. Seeing the stars in Big Sky is absolutely awesome. The little man is about to crawl any day, his battle with the stomach bug was the shortest of anyone and it didn’t slow him down in his progression.
Hope everyone else had a fantastic Thanksgiving, more on the lines of the Patriots and not the Jets.
