|12:47 am - Tough Break|
At the last minute, my father put together a ski trip. Someone offered him the use of their lovely Sugarloaf condo. Sunday I flew up to New Hampshire, and we took the long way (via the outlets) to the mountain. We had an adventure upon arrival, which I will relate when I put up pictures.
Today I had my second big adventure. By Eastern standards, I am a pretty good skier. By that I mean that there really aren't many, if any, open runs on a given Eastern mountain that I have cause to pause, let alone hesitate or avoid.
For the first time in many days of skiing, I fell. Hard. Twice. Ripped my new ski bib ($19.48), my face, and bruised, sprained or strained my knee and elbow. Sprained or broke my left index finger. Typing is ever so much fun with a couple of splinted fingers. So, my ski trip is over. Fortunately, it looks like there will be no actual consequences -- everything should be naturally healed very quickly. I already feel like I got hit by a truck, I dread the morning.

at some point I'll tell you about my truck adventures last night. I ended up walking for miles through rural PA in 5-degree weather. I should be getting on my way again this afternoon.
Thanks again for all your help yesterday afternoon.

I should probably go get my left hand x-rayed ... it still hurts a bit down in the heel especially when I do things like opening jars. And this is >2 weeks since I fell on it. I think there's a walk-in clinic down the road in Palo Alto... the only one up in the city is in Daly City, several miles from the BART station.
I think the work ski trip is in February. Last year, we bought out Squaw Valley. This year, we're too big for that even so I think its being split into 3 separate weekends or something.
That is totally awful. I encourage you to spend the rest of your vacation in the hot tub. Seriously. All of it.
That sucks. Hope you feel better soon.
