February 28: Apres-ski 1,000

28 Feb

Moments after the above photo was taken at Ragged Mountain in Danbury, NH, today, we decided to take a different route down the mountain.  Moments after that, Mason found the upper steeps of another black diamond, and bounce-bounce-bounced about 40 feet on his back before coming to a rest with no skis attached.  Moments after that, we climbed out of that trail and took another route down the mountain.  Moments after that, I watched from about 200 feet up the hill as he disappeared into a section of powder that took his legs out from under him, robbed him of his skis, and transformed him into, well, this …

Moments after that, Mason had taken his last run of the day and we were on the road.  Then we were home, and moments after that, I was shooting in the driveway … putting away 1,000 in a little more than an hour and 20 minutes.  Moments after that, I did the math and found that we have now made 157,807 foul shots and have 842,193 to go to 1 million.

For more on Hoops For Heroes, with a goal of 1 million made foul shots and $1 million raised for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, visit or contact Dave Cummings at 603-554-7855.
