I made a kind of hang glider out of a freezer box when I was a kid.  ;D
How come I didn't break my legs?

Well, I think we would all agree you must have hit and dented your head a little.. ;D 8)

Oh, I see how it is! I go away for a while, to make a living to keep you in this opulent lifestyle I've created for us... and this is the way you treat me!

To compound the insult, I see some of you are giving her karma for her insolence! That's it I'm out of here.   :'( :'( :'(

I didn't know that Tom Sawyer worked. I thought he conned other people into it.

I haven't paid much attention lately as my kids are all grown, but are there still the old school wood and metal blade sleds around ?

When I was a kid we used to see who could make the most sparks on a sled course we made in the woods.  There was a rock out cropping we intentionally exposed a few inches of.

If you got going fast enough you could make a few sparks and live dangerously.  This was before we discovered girls and other things, so B.B. guns, climbing trees and making sparks were all the rage.  We never put anybody's eye out either.

Man I had a Flexible Flyer that was probably 20 years old when I got it. It was heavy gauge and the fastest sled on our hill. Kids and adults would come from all around to sled our steep street.

One winter we blocked the road with a snow boulders soaked in water barricade with an opening just large enough for a sled to pass. The next morning one of the kids sounded the alert that the plow crew was trying to breach the wall. We counter-attacked with snowballs and drove off the invaders.  :icon_pirat:

Off course that was MD we didn't have as consistently reliable snows like you New Englanders.

yep they still have them
I have always been a tube man myself.
We could really make a metal runner sled fly on the snowpacked roads in Wyoming.
