Big Slider and Snow Shoes

Although last Saturday wasn't a sunny day. In fact, it rained water for some time, we managed to spend time sliding down the hill again in Kelujärvi. We = Me, R2, R2's second brother + girlfriend. They even brought a Stiga with them. Click on the link to see the picture if you don't know what a Stiga is (I don't know the English name he he...).

Here are some pictures as promised and two video clips. I didn't take too many pics or videos since it was such wet weather and I didn't want to wet my digicam he he after taking the videos, I took it back to the car.

1st pic: The Preparatiooonnnn...R2 had his miniskis on.

2nd pic: Me in my glory HA HA HA HA HA...;-D

3rd pic: The venue!

4th pic: These tracks were made two weeks ago when we went there the first time.

5th pic: I zoomed in on the tracks so you can see them better.

OK, so let me show you how R2 got up. It seems easy if you view the video, but it's NOT easy at all...especially since I'm not used to it, I was always the last one to go up ha ha ha ha...

6th pic: That was also the track I made two weeks ago. I slid my way down from the spot where I took this pic. Actually, the snow shoes did help me get up easier, but then again since they are kinda big and wide, they are a bit heavy (especially 'coz I had to really pick my feet UP - couldn't shuffle them in the thick snow), but that meant I burnt more calories that way, right? HO HO HO HO HO...

7th and 8th pic: Just to show you the view. :-)))

Now here's a short video clip to show you how much fun I had when sliding down the hill hi hi...

Last Saturday I decided to go up the top of the hill just like the others. When I slid down from there one time, I SPUN in the middle so that my head was downward (facing the sky) and here is the picture of me after I stopped sliding down he he he he he...

Last pic: A good pic of us HE HE HE...

Hope to go there again sometime this year before all the snow is gone HO HO HO HO HO HO HO HO HO HO...:-D
