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