Bored...why not LUGE?

I must add that Nate's skateboard is something that Alex and Tyler rigged up for him. It is a piece of mdf board that they attached skateboard trucks to and then spray painted it fluorescent green and white. They originally worked up this treasure for a Sunday night concert where they preformed as the group "Slime Band."
Luge In the luge – the French word for “sled” – the racers start by sitting on their open, moulded fibreglass sleds and rocking back and forth in order to burst out of the start. After pulling away, they use spiked gloves on the ice surface for extra acceleration before they lie down on their backs with their feet stretched out in front of them. Luge racers steer using slight shifts of their legs and shoulders, and brake by putting their feet down and pulling up on the sled’s two runner blades.

That is hilarious. I especially enjoyed the part where Nate careened off to the side and we never see him again. Hope he's ok.

Ditto on Leah's comments. That really was so funny. I don't know that we were nearly as creative as your kids seem to be. Where did they get this idea?

That is awesome. What creative kids!

Rob and I just watched this together and we both just loved it! What a great movie! Your kids have major guts to do that.

How fun! Survista Dr. would have been a great hill to do this on...not that I would have ever attempted it, but it would have been a great hill for it. Envy the bravery!
