Not that any of us though otherwise but JMan made it to the top today…….the top was Nashoba Valley. Lesson 4 and the instructor decided it was lift time.
Here’s JMan with his instructor on his first chair lift ride.
On his second run his was a little slow off the mark and ended up on the next chair by himself. He didn’t seem too bothered as he passed me. In fact he look quite relaxed.
Here it comes.
And away he goes.
Way to go JMan….may you have many many more chair lift rides to wonderful shredding experiences.
According to GMan doing this dance will produce at least 8″ of snow. Go here to see GMan in action.
We went on a family hike to The Bell today. There located off Indian Hill Road in Groton MA. Park at the end of the road, go left on the dirt road by the metal gate, hike in about 1/2 mile or so, just follow the yellow arrows. I’m not sure if the history but three cylinder type bells are hanging amongst the pine trees.
Old mill site on the hike.
Part of the mill equipment.
Ice and water.

Pull man pull!
Pano in action.
I needed some snowboard racks in my basement to get our gear off the ground. I wanted to spend nothing so I went hunting in my garage for anything I could use.
I came across some cheap shelf brackets and as luck would have it I found six…..that’s two per board, for all three boards.
Here’s a shot of the top two brackets in place.
I used some pipe insulation held on with zip ties so I won’t have metal against metal which will dull our edges and scrape the board bottoms.
My board on the top shelf.
A few minutes later all three were in place.
What you need:
1. Shelf brackets.
2. Pipe insulation that will fit over the brackets.
3. Some wire ties.
4. Screw gun/drill.
5. Sheet Rock screws.
6. A Level, but you can eyeball it.
I found a few studs and screwed directly into them. I suggest you do the same if you want your boards to stay on the wall!
