As September rolls around, we remember those end of summers from the past, the beginning of new school years (offering a nice collection of holidays), and an end to some stifling hot days of summer. It also reminds us of a song from a long-running musical whose lyricist, Tom Jones, started his days in the Texas Panhandle.
September also makes us think of cooler weather as Fall sets in, and turns towards winter. September is when we try to remember what it was like in Winter, and what it will be like this winter. Moreover, September makes us think of SNOW! SKIING! BOARDING!
Are we prepared for our snow adventures? Are we ready for those skiing opportunities? What will we do different this year? What's our agenda, and what will we take, and how will we get there, and where will that be?
Too many questions! But here we offer a couple of suggestions, and information that might help you. Especially with the transportation of that cumbersome equipment you'll require.
First, let's look at picking a ski or board bag. The folks at SpadOut.com will clue us in.
Second, since the bag is big enough to pack in three small children, let's do it right. Our friends, (lucky bastards that they are, being able to ski in summer months down in OZ) at Auski.com.au will lend a hand showing us how to stuff that stuff.
Who knows? Perhaps we'll see you skiing Japan this year with all of your ostrich friends? Until then, pray for snow!
