Not injured yet (fingers crossed)

Ski season is in full swing here in Idaho. I have been up on the mountain about seven times so far and I am still in one piece!

I say that because I had a premonition over the summer that I was going to sustain a season ending injury early in the season this year. I'm not the type of person who puts much weight on goofy things like that, but I must admit that it made me kind of nervous! So far, so good, even though I spent most of the day chasing a much younger, much better friend of mine down black diamond slopes all day last Saturday!

My regular ski buddy didn't get to go with me because he had to spend some time with his mommy, but we will be going up together really soon.

His name is Zach, and he should be ready for the 2022 Olympics! Here is a picture I took of him a couple of weeks ago:



Here he is in action:



And here he is getting refueled at the lodge:

My premonitions never happen for years. So do not think you are safe until you cannot ski due to a nonmedical factor.

Yep, I broke my collar bone while crashing almost exactly 1 year after posting this. There is a thread on here somewhere about it.
