Night out for the adults

13 Apr

Jess and I had a night out in Portsmouth NH. We stayed in the Ale House Inn. Go here for more info. It’s not an inn….more like a small boutique hotel. Cool place with iPad and flat screen TV’s in all rooms.

Dinner was at the Library Resturant. Reservations are recommended so we ended up in the bar which has a fun menu. The food is great and so was the service.

Let me do a selfie!

The room was comfortable and we slept well. The bells in a near by church rang at 8:45….

Breakfast was at the Friendly Toast. We ate here before and it’s a must do if you come play in Portsmouth.

Bird nest

11 Apr

The other day while at work a few very productive birds decided to build a nest on my car! They got a lot done in four hours but unfortunately it was all for nothing as I needed to drive home.

Here’s a video of GMan catching some air.

Mount Snow – 3rd Day

19 Mar

Up early and packed. Breakfast and conversation were good. Loaded up the gear and headed to the mountain.

JMan took a boarding lesson and GMan and I took in a few runs. It was anything but spring boarding today. High thirties and sleeting at the top.

Conditions were not as good today with lots of ice and/thin coverage. On run three I took a good spill….according to GMan I planted the front of my board a did a complete summersault. Good job I’m dressed for battle but I feel this one in the am!

In for lunch and GMan is off at his lesson. I’m sitting out the afternoon or possible hanging with JMan on bunny hill.

GMan lesson went really well and he now knows how to do a trip pod. On one of his last runs he came through the 1/2 pipe. Go here for a video.

Lunch at the Salon on the way out if town. It’s the best food and value on town.
