Brave New Jon – water skiing

So I’d never been water skiing before, and the opportunity arose today to use the wetsuit that has been sitting in the trunk of my car for the past couple weeks without use. It was awesome. I had a great time. Of course, I sucked, but that’s not the point. It was exciting, and new, and something that generally was far more fun than I had thought it would be.

We headed up to the Merrimack River, and hooked up with a mutual friend of my colleagues, who happens to have a nifty little speedboat. Of course, the guys I went with are hard core types who were quickly performing various stunts, while I tried to figure out how to not slam into the water at high velocity…not that I cared being the beginner amongst the bunch. Everyone has to try something for the first time once in their life ;-)
