We just got to Texas yesterday for a short fall break week and family reunion. It’s been great being back in Austin and seeing our friends. Last night we went out to dinner with some friends, then went over to our friends the Deweys’ house to hang out. Our first quarter of the school year just finished last Friday, and I think it went pretty well. Classes for me are a bit tougher than last year, although still pretty easy. I’ve been driving to school every day, which is a big change from last year. Isaac’s been coming along every day now that he’s a freshman, and it’s been fun having him in the car with me, although I’ve been driving him to so many places around the county.
Snowboarding season is just about to start, and I couldn’t figuratively be more ready. Early season has always been one of my favorite parts of the season, and I hope this season won’t be any different. I’ve been boarding once already up Loveland Pass, and it was super fun sliding rails and being on my board again (although I basically destroyed it with all the rocks). The New Year’s Eve rail jam is coming up in just about two months, and then it’s going to be race season. I have a ton of boardercross races lined up, although the Revolution Tour schedule hasn’t been finalized yet. So far, I have six races confirmed so far – three races in January at Ski Cooper, and then another three later in the season in March at Crested Butte. I’ll also hopefully get three or so races on the Rev Tour, and maybe more if I do some NorAm races on the Hole Shot Tour.
That’s basically it right now – school and prepping for snowboarding. The rest of our time in Austin is going to be extremely fun, and I can’t wait (again, obviously figuratively). I’ll hopefully be able to post a bit more, but we’ll see.
