In Dunedin the local 4WD club provides transport for essential hospital workers.

Ugh, I can't imagine trying to get to work on cross country skies!

Well, it's probably easier for someone who lives outside of Duluth, MN, than it would be where you live.  :laugh:

In some of our more severe winter storms, I've seen people cross-country skiing down the streets of Philadelphia.  :laugh:

Now that would be something to see!

I just wished it was me. I'm sorry I never learned cross-country skiing. It's great exercise, and I would probably have less a chance of breaking something compared to down-hill skiing.

I know it's not too late, if I had somebody to go on a ski trip with me.

Coincidentally, I cleaned out the basement yesterday and am getting rid of my cross-country skis. Want to buy 'em?  :laugh:

I got them when I was about 20, so they're out of date -- I think skis have been improved since then and I'm sure nobody will want them. I may try to sell them in a rummage sale, nevertheless.

I haven't used them much over the years. Last time I skied was about 10 years ago, a handful of times in a big city park with lots of trails. (And even then I still felt like I could break something.)

Probably tough on the ankles, I guess.

Tell you what, you pay for shipping and we'll call it even.

BTW, if you ever do ship something like that, go to FedEx, not UPS. I inquired at both places about the cost of shipping my son's snowboard to Breckenridge, CO, where we spent Thanksgiving with family a couple of years ago. UPS gave me an estimate of $375. Forget that, he can rent. But later (after it was too late anyway), I asked FedEx. $75.

Luckily, I didn't do either because it was warm there and I guess the snow conditions on the hills were terrible. It snowed the day we left.

I remember when you borrowed a ski suit from me one time! Yes, your thought is right. Skis have changed a lot over the years. Maybe you could get someone to buy them to make a chair or fence out of, or for decoration.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

Hello Bettermost friends!

Relaxing on a Saturday, watching the World Figure Skating Championships.   Also did some cleaning in the apartment, and the grocery shopping.
