Since I had the weekend off (first time in a long while), I decided it would be a good idea to head up Mount Hood. It was about a 2hr drive and the drive up was pretty entertaining. I have never really been up a actual mountain (with snow) so this was something new to me.
I had planned on taking a snowboarding lesson at a place in Government camp. But I got there too late to start. It was a big disappointment, but I will be going back in a week or two to attempt it. I have a feeling I'd be the oldest person in the beginning class but growing up in the south didn't exactly present many opportunities to go snowboarding. The people there were actually really nice and even willing to show me the basics, although I couldn't get into the class. I didn't accept it vowing to return to get an actually lesson. Any advice on what to expect when I finally do get a lesson? Sorry for the short post but I will be updating in a few days with some goings on. I already know I need goggles and possible better pants.
