Here I am pulling Travis and Andrew Salatin on the frozen pond out by the sales building. The knee pads are very important... Look below to see why.
I would run along the ice at a high rate of speed, then glide down on my knees as the boys slide past me. As you can see Andrew is really enjoying himself.
Andy (other apprentice) and I standing on the ice getting ready to start our hockey game. If you look behind me you can see the new hoop-house we are building. I really enjoy doing construction work and this project has been really fun.
Bring It On!! Though this is a pose... I was a pretty intense goalie. Notice the gear: one home-made hockey stick (thanks to Andy), two knee pads found on the back porch, and one little league version baseball glove (came in useful).
Another pose... still intense.
Here is most of the group. Like I said yesterday only a few with skates but still loads of fun.
Thanks Rachel for taking all the pictures!!
