    Two things are now OBVIOUS to me. Mikey wasnt joking about the hills in Minnesota...and after 9 hours of skiing I still dont know how to stop. Skied all the Greens all but one blue and tryed a black 3 times and ate it every time:doah:

    What was killin me was when I got their I was eating it down the bunny hill for like a half hour...theres like 5 year olds skiing down the hardest slope...with no poles.


    Ill post a more detailed story later, Im goin muddin out at our farm since its almost like 50 out.







    Also everyone give Mikey hell cuz I told him what motel me and my buddys stayed in and hes never came over.

    Oh and Minnesota beer sneaks up on ya too:D

    We left Iowa about 7 am, got to ManKato about 10 skied till about 7. We were gonna drive back but I was too sore for 3 hours of driving. So we crashed in a motel for the night.

    Funniest thing of the day had to be my inability to stop. Theres a Blue with a good curve for speed, well it was about 630 or so and we decided we would ride that blue down and hop a lift to the front side.

    Two buddys in front of me and the other two behind me. I was Seriously haulin the mail.

    Im gettin real close tryin to slow down. Could tell it wasnt gonna happen so I holler out "Comin In Hot" real loud and just eat it. Jake told me he saw me go down then stuff just flyin everywhere.



    At some point we decided to try the terrain slope with ramps and rails for the snowboarders...im glad someone came up with that idea. Justins fiance Jen was like to hell with you guys. Adam went down did a table top jump and two others just fine. Justin did the table top and make it. Jake did a little one and made it just fine. Well my Ego wasnt about to let me be showed up:doah: . Tryed a little one...ate it...got going again tryed the last one on the way down...ate it again. Yep we did that about 3 times...


    I did quite a few blues all day. Actually I think I tryed all but 2 Blacks, 2 experts and 1 blue. I didnt think I did to bad. Need to work on my stopping. Came blazeing into a lift line behind my buddy and took out a pole:crazy:

    I just thank god i never ran into anyone.

    If nothing else I was great entertainment for the little kids riding the lift and watching me eat it 2 or 3 times on the same black.

    :haha::haha::haha::haha:

    I was probably only about 100 yards from you at one point in the night, but I was in no shape to drive or tell the driver where to go.

    FYI - You can get kicked out for taking rental skis over the tabletops and jumps.
