The Epicski community is really just another boost to recovery. All the support (and heckling, thank you, Milesb) is such a motivator to keep doing the best I can do. I know that if it helps me, it helps others, too.

If the Nearly Dead* can ski, there's no reason for any other Bear not to be out there having fun.

Ott........you're SkiAstute. Exactly so. "Congratulations, instead of being afraid you have to be in love with the mountains, they'll love you right back and will take care of you. Just repeat to your self: "I love this, I love this" and then listen for the echo."

And I will 'See the rabbits', DKN.

All's right with the world. The Queen has retaken her dominion!

Way to go, Bonni!

Bonni, this is wonderful! You know that the mountain is out there just waiting to dance with you, again...

Big deal. I was more impressed when you were climbing ladders with a broken leg.

Way to go Bonni. I'm proud of you for giving it a go . Take it ever so slowly and breathe deeply that fresh mountain air.

Bonnie, congratulations on being "back in the saddle". Like so many things in life, the first time is often the hardest then it gets easier from there. Good job and good luck for a great season.

Just found this thread, Bonni. You deserve a lot of credit for getting out there again. Congrats!

Congraulations, Bonni. Reading your post just made my day. I'm smiling as I type this.

Hope to hear more good reports from you over the winter.

I feel so NEW. Like a virgin, skiing for the very first time. :
Can't wait to go again, and hope conditions are still good.
Once an addict, always an addict. :
Where are you skiing?

Just found this, Bonni. We've never met in person, but I missed you these past few months... I'm pleased to see you've made it back on the slopes. :

I was able to ski with my mom in Idaho this past week -- her first trip back after MCL/PCL tears that ended her very first ski season late last winter. The mist in her eyes likely matched yours after a successful first run! I'm so glad both of you got in the saddle again!

Regretably, several days ago Bonni told us the ski thing didn't work out so good:

Life has taken another turn just that quickly.

Thanks for listening. Tune in tomorrow for another episode of "The Downward Spiral" starring Bonni the Mystified Headcase.:

Thanks for the well wishes, Everyone. You guys are helping keeping me afloat.

I'm going to try to get out there Saturday. As of this moment, simple household chores are ........well........a chore. Skiing seems like a monumental task.

Ya gotta laugh or die cryin, I say.

Bonni, keep on keeping on, what else can we do? Enjoy the simple triumphs. Remember, when you click in and let gravity pull, it will feel fine and the world will be right again.

You're right, Mr. Crazie. It always happens that when I click into bindings, I feel this strange kind of out-of-control power........I can't explain it. I suppose Indy drivers feel the same when they click that harness. :

Now, about that hat of yours I've been trying to snag for years now......
