Sick of the snow

Not exactly. More like sick and can't enjoy the snow (that's the view from my bedroom window). Last night started feeling pretty crappy and couldn't sleep. Bed was spinning, had the cold sweats, got the bucket ready. I got up and made camp on the recliner and started watching some strange late night CBC movie, I thought the movie was going to be good but it really wasn't. Actually started feeling better after an hour or so. Stomach settled and the temperature regulator started working again. Made some cheapo Campbell's vegetable soup and that hit the spot. Went back to bed around 3am and got a solid sleep. Now I have a bit of a sore throat and I'm a little dizzy but really I thought it was going to be much worse.
Anyways so now I am stuck indoors which I must admit as far as relaxing and time wasting, I'm one of the best. Kind of a bummer that I can't go out and enjoy the 30cm or so of new snow that fell overnight. Still snowing. Maybe Andrew will be able to get out the big groomer and we can open the rest of the trails at Hardwood for the weekend. Not that I'm ready to do anything but the easy loops yet.


  1. Hey Ben, get better soon. BTW I would love to try out your camp some time, how old do you think I would have to be before I could try it out?

  2. You mean South Carolina? It's not really a camp it's just a place to stay while you do your own thing. The guided tour is really more dependent on skill level so I would say a mediocre skill/fitness level required. If a 4 hour ride doesn't sound like the end of the world then it is probably right for you. I more started the tour so that people didn't have to spend 5 years like I did getting to know all of the best trails in the area.
