I'd like to dedicate this post to R.E.M.

I would like to take this moment to share with you something very special.  Something that I care very deeply about.  Something that changed the way I view the world and myself.

Alpine Slides.

Kurt and Harper riding up the mountain.
I know, I know.  Amanda/ Mandy we already know all about Alpine Slides and the spiritualism of such a ride, where have you been.  I know, right!  For those very few who don't know it is a slide so high you take a ski lift to get to the top of the MOUNTAIN.  Then after you sign a waiver you get into a plastic "sled" with a brake between your legs, say a prayer, kiss the children one last time then hurl yourself down a track made of concrete.  We drove into the mountains on Saturday to see some fall foilage and beautiful scenery when we happened upon Heritage Square and their glorious claim to fame.

If there is a patch, I need one.  Cause baby, momma gonna find and ride every alpine slide available.
Seriously, when you come visit I will take you to my new chapel and you will be converted!


A video.

Sorry I would have recorded more but I had to hold the pee in and the brake at the same time, the video camera had to go.
