January 2 – Gear

First thing’s first.  Gotta load up on snow gear.  I’ve always borrowed from friends or my mom and now I gotta finally break down and buy it for myself.  It’s cool.  My bestie works at Columbia Sportswear and I get a friends and family discount.  Word up.  It’s still ridiculously expensive, but it really is the best.

Check out my spread!

GEAR!!!

 

I got snow pants, snow boots, gloves, and an awesome jacket for about $250.  I will keep renting skis and boots for now.

January – Snow Sports

Okay, so I know I just did Random Sports and now I’m doing Snow Sports.  It’s like, geesh!  Get a new hobby already?!  Turns out I really like to be active, who knew?  Anyway, I just moved to the super east side of Portland for my new job and I’m ridiculously close to Mount Hood and I would be remiss if I didn’t take advantage.  (For those of you who are tracking my moves and found that little word bomb; yes, I did move 3 times in 2012.  I’m not proud of it.  Get off my back.)

Anywho, let’s take a look at my handy list of all the things I want to do, that I will probably only get to about half of: Skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, sledding, and general snowball fightery.
