Monoski Backflip

Many of my readers have sent me this video. No. I don't do backflips on my rig.

I was sorry to hear that Sarah Burke died. I had met her once at Snowmass.

I really missed skiing this year.

OMG!! I would not try that and I HAVE my legs!!! We summer in Park City and watch the skiers @ Olympic Park practice trick flipping into the pool - kinda makes you appreciate how difficult it is to do correctly.

I also missed your ski trip, Denny. But I would have worried myself sick if you had gone this year. Lets wait for summer, and the diving adventure.

Claudia - I'm skipping the dive trip this year. I would not like to get a stroke, even a minor one, in Bonaire which is where the crip trip, once again, is going to this summer. As you recall, I didn't really enjoy myself all that much on the last trip and only went on half the dives. It's not worth that much money for only eight dives. As I was flying home last year, I had decided that it would prolly be my last trip and my stroke reinforced it. If I do go diving again, it will prolly be in the Florida Keys. I haven't been there since before my accident.

Denny - I'm glad, if you do some diving again, you'll go to a safer place. Frankly, although I enjoy your posts, I worry when you go on those trips. Let's see what next winter brings. I hope you're getting good medical follow up to prevent another mini-stroke.
