Sledging

Sledging is lot of fun. Not the sledging between players in sports, but Snow Sledging. It was a small sledge where one person can sit and go down a hill packed with snow(see pic). Last sunday was fantastisk with Bright and Sunny day and perfect for outdoor activities. Getting used to the idea of sitting on a sledge and going downhill at reasonably high speeds negating some dangerous turns and quite a lot of dangerous bumps was bit of a challenge. After couple of trips we sort of figured out how to steer the sledge in steep turns and to avoid hitting fellow sledgers.

Since it hadn't snowed for couple of weeks the course was more of hard packed snow than fresh snow. So sledge picked up speed very fast as you go down hill and those bumps were very dangerous for our Bums. We almost fell off the sledges few times, but it was total fun. Plan to do some more this weekend with lot of fresh snow and also try snowboarding.

Ram, after careful consideration of your opinion, I believe it's at attempt at being provoking or a bad case of sour grapes. And I have said the same in my blog as well. :) What do you think?

Sledging is real fun and it stimulates thoughts also(How do i know ??)..i know it from Calvin when he do this with hobbes in jungles (esp on Bright Sunny day..), jumpin up n down, having crash with a trees finally falling in a watertank.. and on the ride his philosophical remarks are always enough to give hobbes sleepless nights. I couldnt stop smiling when imagined u in the same situation..:)) carry on with lot more fun and live life calvin's way..take care
