DEC 25-26-27 2005 SNOWBOARD TRIP YO
CAST: Sonny - Nining - Adresya - FeeLi - Patrick - Me
25th DEC - So on 25th at around 7:30-8am we departed from Tucson to Greer, Arizona. It was a smooth ride, all enjoyed their nice naps and left Sonny & Nining watched for the road. Yea, we trust you guys... ZzzZZzz
We arrived there on 12:30pm. Lift ticket was so cheap! Only $15! lalalala... Sadly, our snowboard equipment & shoes are crappy and we had to pay like $43 @#^$&* The reason for such cheapo is that they only have manmade snows & 2 beginner lifts opened. Boy manmade snows are so painful if you fell, especially on butts. You can feel that the cushion is like 2 inches thick and the rest is ice! As ice-hard as the one in your freaking fridge k.
After a HARD day (no pun intended), we had our dinner at a surprisingly good Chinese food near our motel. Perhaps it's really good or perhaps we're just mighty hungry. Then we went to sleep after rubbing almost a good half of Nining's Counterpain all over our painful muscles.
26th DEC - Guess what. We don’t have any threatening muscle pain (well, butt-pain excluded) to prevent us from doing another round! So we grab our rented snowboard equipment for $25 from another place. Half day of pure snowboarding again.. Hooray!
A little accident occurred when Fee Li experienced bad lift landing, like 10 minutes before the park closed. The lift take-off there is so dangerous ok? The steep is so icy and there isn't enough space to control your turn. Even though Fee Li only felt shock, the medics there refused to let her go by her own. They managed to persuade her to take care of her supposedly injured ankles. Thus free sleigh ride for Fee Li.
We went back to hotel, Fee Li & me tried the Jacuzzi to relax our tiring legs, and then we went to this freaking expensive Japanese restaurant. Definitely not worthy.
27th DEC - We went to Big Lake for supposedly boating. Surprise2x. No water left.. only ice. So we cannot boat on ice, we took some pictures instead. The wind is so chilly! Feels like we're in north pole or something.. Brrr...
We said our goodbye to Pinetop, grabbed a quick lunch along the way, and had dinner at Bison Witches in Tucson Downtown.
