The boys and I took a little hike in the woods today.
JMan cuts a trail.
GMan does a little rock climbing.
All this hiking worn JMan out!
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.
We split the above! Yum
Get here before 10 or wait in line!
Today we are back at Wachusett Mountain. Condition are between granular sugar and too frozen slushy! Welcome to true New England boarding.
Just GMan and I so most of the morning was spent in the park. Next yo the bunny hill the conditions are not bad.
Here’s a video of GMan catching some air.
Here’s another video.
Here’s the last one…..really!
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.
JMan in the tubes.
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.
All in all we had a great time……we’ll be back. MA here we come.
