Luge in a Northern Town

Despite the houses in our area being spread out, we have a neighborhood.  I blame Becky.  I affectionately refer to her as my crazy neighbor. Crazy in a good way. She has boundless energy and is just bursting with creative ideas. She and her husband Marc have four kids aged 6 and under yet, they are some of the most laid back people I’ve ever met.  They are always there to lend a hand, grab a kid off the bus and frequently they open their home to their neighbors for fun times.

This year’s abundant snow fall has enabled the return of the luge. Marc built the first one a two years ago and it was an instant success. Ever since he’s been busy drafting an expanded design.  Last year was a snow bust, but this year has been a gold mine for luge construction. This year’s luge features 50% more sliding space including a straight run built for speed and a curvy run full of twists and turns.

You can’t hear it, but he is saying, go, Go, GO!!!

No fear!

We are so grateful to have such fun, community oriented neighbors!
