Last Friday, we headed up the street to Thomas Wirth Golf Course for the General Mills Gcom Tubetacular Event. The golf course had converted one of the hills into a snow tubing hill and Gcom (Alex's division at General Mills) rented it out for the evening for all of the families. I had never been tubing let alone sledding. Winters in Ohio do not typically provide the amount of snow to make it worth the effort.
Despite the cold temperatures and I mean cold, -30 degree windchill, Alex and I headed out for what turned out to be a very fun evening.
The first run down was a bit scary. I didn't end up going as fast as I thought I would go, which was fine by me. We went down in groups and pairs, and I even did a solo ride which was extremely frightening since I ended up going down backwards halfway through.
Alex decided to get a running start AND go face first on run of his solo runs. I chose to watch and wonder what thought possessed him to make that decision.
By the end of the night, the snow was starting to feel likes needles hitting our faces. I was tired of walking up the side of the hill as well. We were supposed to have a pulley system pull us up in the tubes but that was down for some reason. We decided that it was time to leave for the night.
It was a lot of fun and I hope we can go again soon!
