All I can say is that it's definitely time to retire my board for a new one. The second day was about as successful as the first, so I think I might take a season off and save for my next board. Even with worn out gear, Vail is unbelievable and the experience of being on the mountain cannot be duplicated anywhere else.
Today's drive lasted 21 hours! We made some SERIOUS distance - Vail, Colorado to Knoxville, Tennessee! We were given some veggie oil from Green Guru in Boulder before we started the long haul. It totaled over 1,500 miles!
