"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Finding a Screw on a Mountain of Snow

Today Mr. B got into the act.

The project: Find a lost snowboard set screw and return it to its owner.

While helping our girls load onto the rope tow at the bunny hill, Mr. B overheard a snowboarder asking the lift operator if he'd seen a set screw from a snowboard. A few minutes later, Mr. B spotted the screw in the snow. (What are the chances?!) Mr. B skied down the hill, then ran about 200 yards with ski boots on to give this guy the missing piece.

Have you ever tried to run on snow in ski boots?

5 minutes

Why bother?
Mr. B is a good guy - and he knew the kid couldn't 'board without this part.

Worth it?
Mr. B was winded, but the kid was back on the slopes in no time, and Mr. B was happy with his effort.
