156 Days…

So looks like my original goal of posting a few times a week went out the window fast. I actually have a good reason though. Really! Apparently I have a knack at finding the most bizarre ways of getting injured. I can’t just go break an arm or dislocate a shoulder. Nooo, I have to go somehow annihilate the heck out of the fun stuff holding some of my ribs together. The bad news – there aren’t enough ice packs on this planet (especially when it’s 92 degrees out). The good news – the sabbatical adventure is still on. The ER doctors and other awesome medical people were suspecting things that would have put me out of commission this season, but I’m stubborn. =D

The downtime did give me some time to think about all the various things I need to get going before this adventure takes off, so for any of you people out there reading this, give me some feedback!

I’m thinking about getting the following:

  • A Thule rack system with snowboard attachment (I drive a small car and it’d be nice to not kill my backseat with wet snowboards this year)
  • A GoPro camera
  • Another set of bindings (I have a pair of Burton Stilletos I’ll continue to use on one board, but I want to put something else on the other just because)

  1. You weren’t accident prone as a child, but when you did do something (injury,etc) you did it up right. I do believe the 99 Restaurant in North Conway still has a dent in it’s wooden doorway from your head :-)

  2. Jillian, this is Aaron from Snowboard Jones, cool blog! Just wanted to let you know that we sell Thule racks and will have GoPro’s this year! I will definitely give you a discount on both, and of course your bindings too!

    1. Hey Aaron, glad you were able to find the blog and checked it out! I’ll definitely be getting some gear from Snowboard Jones this year, and trust me – the shopping list has only gotten bigger than this post. =D

      Looking forward to working on the collaborative post with you and Todd on the 19th!
