180 Tubing

So last night, from like 7:00 p.m. to 10:00, my youth group, 180, went tubing at this monstrous tubing hill. There were four tracks where we could race and it turns out, we could have linked too and gone in groups, but the tracks were so icy from the rain (yes, it was raining while we were there :D) that the surveyors didn't allow it for the night. But because of the ice, the tracks were SO fast. My hat pretty much threatened to blow off every time I went down it was so swift. After a while, some of the boys got a little bored so we decided to start a new trend. Taking off our coats and sweatshirts so we were just in our t-shirts, we raced down the slope amidst the falling rain and snow. Okay, I'm not going to lie. It killed. Ice and snow buffeted my bare arms and face until they were throbbing and freezing. But, being as stupid as I am, I decided to, with my friend Caleb, take the next step upward in our experiment... going down the slope... with no shirts. *grins* I'll admit it, it was a really stupid thing to do, but it was AWESOME!!! We were flying while being pelted by all sorts of winter elements and I LOVED it. I can't wait until next time I go tubing to do it again. :D So yeah, that was my daring tubing endeavor. *grins*

Just a little side note that is completely irrelevant to the main post: CURSE OF THE SPIDER KING IS AWESOME!!!!!!!! Batson has done it again!!!
