Next time there's snow I think I'll try sledding down a hill in an actual rocking chair.
"Rocker Revolution" launches the "Geezer Olympics"! Mikey likes it! ;-)
Also, I have some of those cheap plastic Adirondack chairs like you can buy at Home Depot for $10. Sitting in em you're deep in the back seat, and inherently have a lot of flex. Bet if you mounted old skis as runners you could just twist and get em to edge and turn. Course that would be rotary, and folks round here generally don't seem to think much of that technique.
To carry things to an extreme...big old La-Z-Boy recliner...hmm...better have a tow line to get back up the hill.
Lastly, for "oops, I crapped my pants" just before the inevitable wipeout...
Note: As the good book tells us, "there's nothing new under the sun", so I suspect all this has been done before. Still, just cause it ain't new don't mean it ain't new to me...and fun!
Apologies for thread hijack.
