Yesterday day , we had perfect snow for skiing . Fluffy , powdery , just perfect.! I broke out my back woods skis and decided what a beautiful day to play . Got all my gear together , hit the snow from my back porch step and away we we go , Weeeee Haaaaa.! Down the back woods trail , by the neighbor,s pond ,through the pine thickets , just beautiful .! As I was cruising , I hit a covered stump , Ooouuch , face plant.! I broke my nose again , forth time .! All in all , not so bad , I fixed it . I can now breath through both sides which before , I could not . I skied for about four hours , big fun , so I though . With in 30 minutes , my nose had swollen shut to the point where I could not breath through it it at all . 1hour past past and my mouth was so dry , I could not swallow .! Ooouuch.! time to eat snow , wet my mouth a little . Eating snow is cool but does lower body temp , Brrrrrrr , Oooooouuch ! I finally made it home and my face had looked gun shot , blood ,a whole lot of blood.! I sit here pondering , was it worth it , everything that could possibly hurt does . Everything .! I am crippled in pain and I mean everything that could hut does . Oooooouuuucch , really , ooooouuuch .! Maybe I,ll get in a little better shape next time , just OOOOOOUUUUUCCCCCHHHHHH ....! Oh the great great out doors , Ooooouch.!
