Warren Miller is my pusher

Remember when you were 6 and you got your first set of cowboy boots and you wanted to wear them to bed? No? I do and right now, I'm sitting here in my helmet and goggles thinking about going to sleep. I'm three days away from leaving on the first snowboard trip of the year. I've been running around doing a few last minute things here and there. I finally got a set of mittens that I like. I think I'm ready, but I'm a little nervous. It's been almost a year since the last time I was on a board. I know that I'm going to be rusty and I just hope that I don't break something. As I sat down with the packing list I flipped on HBO and what do you know, a Warren Miller film. I love them. I will sit down and stare slack jawed as I watch one. I know that I will never be as good as any of these guys. Hell, I'm not sure I will ever even be good enough to make it down a black, but I can dream can't I?
