Oh man..........I've been skiing about 5 times and snowboarding once. I was snowboarding out at Mt. Hood......I'm sure you're familiar with it, in fact you've been there right?
So, I was never that good at skiing and I totally sucked at snowboarding. My first time going I was heading down the hill and couldn't stop. There was a little train of young kids skiing in a zig zag down the hill, all keeping together with their instructors. I busted right through the chain of kids (but didn't hit or hurt any) on my way down and ahead of me I saw a drop off leading to the parking lot so my only way of stopping (as a first timer) was to run into the padded pole that supports the ski lift.
Yeah, I was pretty cool, and never went snowboarding again.
My little brother, on the other hand, goes snowboarding all the time in Colorado where he lives and goes to college. He really likes it. He's a vegetarian for 10 years (21 year old kid) and is kind of a preppy dude. He's got his pimped out Jeep Grand Cherokee, GQ look, Brand name clothing, and all that stuff. He was my best friend growing up but over the past 8 years we haven't been as close, which is sad for me, but I guess that is how it goes..........but my sister and I are closer than ever before and I'm closer to my other brother than I've been probably ever also.
But anyway, no snowboarding for me. Mostly table tennis, basketball and soccer these days.
I used to want to be a professionaly basketball player, then a professional wrestler. Then somehow got into bodybuilding............but I'm pretty pleased with how things turned out, I've been able to have an impact on thousands of people through Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness. So I keep on keepin on. Life's a Garden......dig it.
