Folkeee's and Folkers?? huh?

Chile Update folks,

Well well well, its always a good time for me down here. I feel like I can free my mind and forget about everything except for skiing and the current book of choice. (Freakonomics and Atlas Shrugged).
The training is awesome if the weather permits but thus far this season it hasn't. According to the locals there have been an abnormally high winds this winter, which isn't good for downhill if your not a ski buff. But the good news is the wind brought some nice storms and I finally was able to partake in a couple of satisfying powder days. Last season there was an extreme lack there of. It was actually quite depressing.

We also had a couple down days but made good of our time. First hiking up to some thermals and then sliding down like penguins and then pow skiing. Kevin Francis and I also took advantage of the winds and went kiting. If you want to check out some of the skiing pics go to my TDadventure link, there is some vid and shots there thanks to our fine Physio Toddy

Yeah been a while. Here's a little update.
Congrats to whomever guessed the Mt. T road. good job, my strand of nappy hair probably flew away by now.
Right now I'm in Chile catching up with the ski world.
The weather has been tough, we have got a couple of GS days under our belt but anytime we go for speed the wind and fog gods reign upon us!
My bodies feeling good and I am skiing pretty well. I need to work out a few kinks. My ski load hasn't been as heavy this summer so I need to make the best out of what I have.
I will say one thing about skiing. It has to be the coolest thing on earth. Really, I love watching my teammates rip around the mountains. We push our bodies to some amazing extremes. I think if I had never witnessed skiing and I one day stumbled upon a bunch of folks sliding and flying down a mountain on some wooden sticks I would be amazed.
Alright gotta go, time for dinner. I will post pics soon
