The concept of "mindfulness" always seemed abstract to me. I have heard dozens of definitions of it and never really got it. But finally realized that when I'm skiing I'm thinking of nothing else more than my next turn and the beauty around me. It's probably the only time I'm ever that in-the-moment anywhere.
EDIT: Thanks all. This has been a nice convo. Lots of you saying surfing and motorcycle riding give similar results. Any other activities or tips are more than welcome.
Every one of the single post I’ve ever seen here about jet skiing, has been from a Catholic.
That’s literally 100% of every post about jet skiing here. I met a Protestant once, and he has never even been on a JetSki in his life. Proving my point conclusively.
Why do Nationalists ruin everything?
I have a friend who went and skied Hillman's Highway at Mount Washington this past Saturday 5/1. Now if you were watching MWAC you would know that Saturday was a Avi Rating of Considerable. Due to High winds and new snow creating wind slabs of up to a foot+ on top of icy conditions. Archived Avi Forcast 5/1. So looking at the weather report leading up to this I predicted the avi danger and told him to be prepared not to ski anything past Sherbie. He obviously ignored me. My friend has no avi training (could not identify wind slabs or terrain traps),no shovel and probe. He also brought his girlfriend who I don’t think knows what they were getting into or how to use avi gear at all. Between the three of them they had 2 beacons, one shovel and probe. So I got angry at my friend for being so reckless in avi terrain and putting other people in danger. His response is that I am overreacting and all they did was ski Hillman's which is less risky than the ravine. Also, He said he dosen’t need a beacon, shovel, and probe because if something happens there is enough people around to help him out. I just need conformation I’m not overacting and that even though Hillman’s “may be” less at risk it’s still extremely reckless to go up unprepared.
