    When I clicked to see this, I thought, "Kelly, put a sweater on."

    You know the thinking of our Moms, when they were cold YOU were cold.

    I haven't been there since I was 19 yrs old. At that time, using a large piece of plastic as a sled with 4 friends sitting in front of me, I had an accident and became a Eskimo Hill statistic: by breaking my back- fractured lower lumbar vertebra.

    With my kids, years later, we traveled to many snow covered areas to use the "snow discs" but I avoided Eskimo Hill.

    Here's hoping that all those seeking snow fun, use caution and common sense.

    Eskimo Hill is one of our Holiday traditions. It just isn't Christmas without a trip down its icy slope. We have many different vehicles to travel on but a big sheet of black plastic is always the fastest. A few years ago Santa brought Corina a sit down and steer sled. It is super cool and a fast ride.

    Eskimo Hill is COLD and the wind can whip right through you.

    If you're going please remember the following items:

    Waterproof boots

    Waterproof jacket

    Gloves

    Stocking cap (one that covers the ears is good)

    Scarf (keep the freezing wind from slipping down your neck)

    Water (climbing up the hill is exhausting and you can break a pretty

    good sweat)

    A sled of some sort

    Optional items: Sometimes we bring snacks and drinks and everything

    and make day out of it. If you do this bring a large

    sled or something to haul everything in.

    Hot drinks, cocoa, tea, coffee (alcohol is not allowed)

    Snacks

    Firewood (there are a few fire pits so bring the makings of a nice warm

    fire and spend the day with family and friends)

    Chairs (snow makes your butt wet and standing on snow is cold on your feet)

    Most important, remember to use caution and restraint. Have fun and make memories with your family and friends.

    I would initially have thought of another piece of music, but this one is so perfect. Thanks for this very entertaining moment. Happy New Year

    And thank you for this place to talk without rancor and hate. Does it really have to be "my way" or "no way". We hope not. The best to everyone in 2010.
