Snowboarding for the first time, New Years party! Back in the USA for the Holidays!

So as I mentioned David and I flew back home for a few weeks for the holidays and to take a quick break.



The flight back for me provided some pretty cool scenery going over the ocean and stuff.



Again I had time to reminisce on my life map of driving.



That's quite a lot area covered is all I could conclude.

Once back home I got a chance to see my friends



And celebrate New Year's!

My favorite cousin Mike at his party that somehow ended up with a broken wall.



And even got a chance to go snowboarding with my friends with a quick road trip to Ruidoso New Mexico

We had some fun at a cabin we rented.





Got this hilarious picture, it got everyone in a funky moment.



None of us had ever snowboarded, so we made it a point to all go snowboarding for the first time together.



Rented our gear. 

I love my friend Greg that to the right, reaction to taking a spantaneous picture


Got up to the mountain


 My friend Andrew and I



Like I said, this was my first time snowboarding, I have sand boarded one time before you can click here to see that post, but I'll say it was very different than that.








I even made a pretty awesome video of all the times I fell and crashed. As you can imagine it was not easy!

Awesome video!



Once back home I enjoyed a beautiful desert sunset with my friends.




And did some jumping on my trampoline. Here's a first person perspective on doing a back flip





I'm back home for another 2 weeks, and headed to Austin Texas to visit with my father for a bit before I depart back to Colombia to meet up with David again to continue on to the tip of South America, almost sounds like a World Record of some kind...mmmm... makes me think...time to research.
