Snow Day

It's dumping. Really. It's back to winter. Our original plan was to drive to Great Glen today, ski, stay overnight, then I would work tomorrow and we would ski Nordic Meisters. Due to the snow, we decided to stay home to stay off the roads. This was Plan B. Included in Plan B was a ski somewhere locally. Well, that didn't happen either. Just a day of wallowing on the couch.

The good part of that was that we finished watching Long Way Round. It's not new, but it was new to us. It's a documentary of Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Charley Boorman (I have no idea) riding motorcycles around the world. It's very, very good. They do an excellent job of capturing the experience, and it reminded us a lot of long distance hiking. There were so many similarities. I highly recommend it. Plus, Ewan McGregor is really funny. Actually, they both are. It's good stuff.

Here's a nugget:

OK, so maybe it was a big fat ad. Anyway, you should check it out. Apparently, they did a trip from Scotland to Cape Horn, Long Way Down. I'm hoping to check this out, too.
