Remembering my first try at the wood skis bound to my big clod-hoppers.
Found the 6 foot, wooden skis, at a church bizzar I was elected, by Srs Mary, to set up when I was about 12 years old and took them to the local golf course.
Had my older brother strap them on and with 3 alder sticks in my hand down the hill I went,,,,,for a while.....
Ends up with me on my side 3/4 the way down, with my legs not in very comfortable positions but all in one peice.
The next weekend found me building a sled with those 2 skis.
Much to my surprise now thinking about it, it stayed together most of the day even after ending up down in some deep sand traps.
