Ski In/Ski Out

Well, we survived our weekend adventure up at Wilderness State Park with nary a scratch. The ski in took right around one hour and fifteen minutes with heavy sleds. The cabin was pretty cold when we arrived (duh), but once we got a fire going it was downright cozy. We made it an early night due to the lack of electricity and a mini keg of Bell's Two Hearted. Saturday we explored around out on Waugoshance Point for a little while before heading back to the cabin to wait for Hugh and Denise's arrival. They skied in around four o' clock. After getting them unpacked, we all headed down the beach for a little hike and sunset viewing. The dinner was wonderfully prepared by Denise and quite tasty. We had a few heated games of eucher after dinner (along with an inordinately excessive amount of beer and wine). Sunday morning Sarah cooked a big breakfast, and we began our preparations to ski out. The return trip only took just shy of an hour (I'm pretty sure that had something to do with the box of empty cans and bottles in the back of my sled). All in all, we had a great time this weekend, and I'm sure we'll do it again next year. This week I'll be busy getting ready for my last ski race of the season on saturday morning over at Black Mountain. I'll still try and keep skiing, but it's also getting to be that time of year where I need to be getting back on the bike. The Cohutta 100 is less than two months away. Over and out.

The sleds loaded for the trip out.

A nice German lady took this shot of Sarah and I on the way out.

Home sweet home.
