Happy Holidays, Snowboarding, and Our Poor Camera

Posted Saturday, January 1st, 2005 at 06:10 PM


I’m back! Haven’t posted since before Christmas, so Merry Christmas and Happy 2005! I went on a week-long trip to Carson City, Nevada with Chesney and the Millers to visit Chesney’s Aunt Saundra.

Our Canon S30
…now with more character.

I got to snowboard for the first time in my life. I’ve been skiing ever since I can remember, so I decided to give snowboarding a try. It’s really fun, and not as hard to learn as I thought it would be. I spent the first couple runs falling while only going 4 or 5 miles and hour, but then got to the point where I could stay up for the majority of the time.

Then I went with Chesney and Shawn on an the intermediate run and started going on some steeper slopes and those slow falls turned into full-fledged wipe outs. Our Canon S30 was in my pocket for easy access in case I wanted to get some good pictures. I don’t remember, but I must have landed on top of it at some point. In hind-sight, I probably should’ve let Chesney hold it. Oh well, at least it wasn’t my big, expensive 20d. It actually still takes pictures!
