Tried to dig a hole on the ski mountain with my face yesterday.
I don’t really remember doing that, but the purple blooming across the left side of my face says that I did. Luckily I was wearing a helmet (as you should always).
Anyways, fun tip:
If you happen to get blood on a waterproof piece of clothing, such as a soft-shell snowboard jacket or snowpants, you do not need to wash the item. You can easily lift blood, even dried blood, out of these items by just dabbing the blood stain with cold water on a washcloth.
Dead simple, and saves the waterproof coating on your gear. That discovery was a nice consolation prize after I thought I had ruined one of my favorite jackets.
We will return to your regular programming once the fog in my head clears.
