I like my Snowshoes! :)

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Now that we have had more than plenty of snow (what was I asking for) and finished up all the shovelling and other outdoor work, it was time to break out the snowshoes again and play. Whew! It really is quite the workout, especially breaking track in the snow. I thought that I was in good shape, but I was breathing heavier than I do when I hike (with backpack and poles). Why didn't I buy myself a pair of snowshoes last year? I love this!

These will come in handy when I head out geocaching. Last winter when caching, I kept sinking in the snow and having to trek my way back with snowcovered jeans. Now, I have the proper gear - hiking pants with long silk underwear, and layers. That's the way to gear up.

    I've wanted a pair for about 15 years. I asked my husband if I could get a pair and he was against the idea since he didn't think I'd have much opportunity to use them. I've missed 14 days of teaching this year due to the snow - I think that sounds like opportunity. I might just have to try to convince him again. I geocache too, but I've never done it in the snow. I think it'd be REALLY hard to find them since they are usually on the ground.

    I've been thinking of trying snowshoeing -- but I do so hate being COLD! Not sure I'd get my money's worth if I only did it on days that were "mild" enough by my standards! Sounds invigorating, though!

    I'm in Lambton County where they had the huge snowstorm that left people stranded on the 402 a few days ago. It was quite windy here.

    Here in Essex County (Ontario) we don't usually get enough snow for snowshoes but I remember using them in Nova Scotia back when I was a kid and it was fun.
When a person is prepared, she can have a lot of fun in the winter.
