Every day on my sled I feel more comfortable although I still have a long ways to go. We are developing better tandem techniques that I am really excited about, I'm getting better at not getting stuck, and getting better at getting unstuck! Eventually I managed to get Fabio really really stuck and was absolutely failing at getting unstuck. Fortunately a really friendly group of slednecks showed up and quickly got my sled out. We then watched them hit a road gap jump they built for a while. One thing that I have noticed and really appreciated about sledders that they are WAY more friendly and helpful than skiers ever are. Skiers almost always have a snobby mentality that not only frowns on beginners, but really straight up hates on them. It is so awesome and inspiring to see a group of people who are willing to share knowledge and instantly willing to struggle with you to move your sled!
After watching the slednecks for a while we got a bit cocky, forgot how much of gapers we are and decided we could make it up the hill below. Needless to say we were wrong, somehow we managed to turn the sled around, not fall off completely, drag ourselves back on, and make it down the hill alive.
O boy today was a show!!!
