Now, go drink some green beer! I know I am!

Goodbye Snow, Hello Spring

Well... the rain and the warm temps are making a permanent stay in the forecast, which means goodbye to the snow. Hopefully we'll still have some patches left to play around with the traditional Spring Park. We were gonna go out today but rumbling thunder and the occasional rain drops made us lazy and stay inside. 

As much as I LOVE snow and winter, I'm kinda excited for spring and summer. I'm ready to get my tan on and appreciate the beautiful planet we live on. Ostara (the Pagan holiday for the spring equinox) is Monday night and the weather is supposed to be beautiful. I'd love to go camping and appreciate the 'greening of the Earth' but we'll see how that works out. I've found that I really love things involving nature and the earth, and it makes me feel more 'intune' with myself. Guess that explains my love for the winter season and snow... and snowboarding of course! 

As far as Spring Park... I'll post an update as soon as we get some features out and have some fun. I really wanna put my GoPro to use since I didn't get to use it much over the winter (thanks, rain and warm temps).

Sorry for the lacking updates lately. Our internet is out at the house and I have to rely on other locations to update anything. I'm working on getting our own internet service so I can update more in the future.

80s Weekend

While the West Coast is getting pounded with lots of fresh pow, unfortunately those of us who live in the Southeast are watching our precious snow melt away. I guess that's what we get for having ski resorts in the south. We are expected to get about 3 inches... yes, 3 whole inches by Monday. I sure hope it happens! I'm so tired of seeing muddy snow. 

On the bright side, when the snow is melting, that just means we are closer to SPRING PARK! Oh yeah. That's a whole months worth of fun and progression right there. After the season I tend to get a bit more ballsy because I have some healing time if I get hurt learning new tricks. So pumped!

Last weekend was a blast. It was 80's weekend here at Beech Mountain Resort, and there were plenty of retro outfits to be seen. Here are a few pics of the fun...
