So my friend gives me this sled which is great because we were going to use it for carrying water and wood to and from the house. One night my boyfriend had to go to work because he works nights and I said why don't you take the sled it will get you down the hill faster. Its a mile up to the top. So he did. The next day he tells me of his adventure getting down the hill. He said he went to work in a really good mood because he got down off the hill in 5 minutes. It was the most fun he had in a long time. He said he was flying like he was on an olympic luge and screaming like a little girl all the way down the hill. It was at night so he had a head lamp and all I can think of is the look on our neighbors face as he was flying by down the road with his headlamp on screaming. Since then we have done some sled shopping. Now we have 5 sleds and I'm currently looking to buy a toboggan for our sixth one. Finding sleds that will fit adults has been a tricky thing though. Also ones that are tough enough and practical. Finding one with real brakes and steering would be great. They have these ones that are from Germany that have hand breaks and steering but are more pricey. They have some cheep ones with brakes/steering but they don't really fit adults very well and you are taking your life in your own hands trying to get down the hill in one piece.
