Poor man's sledding
Doug and Brad Sledding

As Southern Californians, not only did we have entirely inappropriate footwear (and barely passable coats, hats, and gloves), we didn't have appropriate sledding gear either.  The winter being so dry, they didn't have any sledding gear in the town site (we even tried the hardware store for thick plastic sheets).  Being crafty parents and realizing our San Diego boys didn't know any better, we equipped them with the only sliding option available: garbage bags.

To be fair (to the boys if not the parents), the boys were so excited they didn't care what embarrassments were foisted upon them.  Here are Doug on the left and Brad on the right making do and having a great time.
