I went to Sports LTD today where my friend Patrick Gillick helped me update my “backyard” ski boots from the old 3 pin system to the more secure and stable NNN system. I live across the street from the Washoe State Park and I want to be ready when the snow really gets serious. Not much better than to put on skis and head out for an over the snow jaunt from home, especially when my daughter and her skijoring dog, Juneau, join me. Great fun, thanks Patrick. I’m ready.
