Jacqui, my parents, brothers, and I all went up to Lake Placid to visit the Olympic site and just to spend some time together. We spent a little bit of time shopping at the good sales they had downtown. I got myself a nice $300 leather jacket for $60. Then we actually went bobsledding. It was awesome. I rode with Jacqui, and Derek rode with Jared. If Derek and I had ridden together, then we would have been able to max out the sled. But as it was, we got up to 53mph. That was the most exciting part of the trip. We also rode up to the top of the ski jumps and looked around, didn't get to ski or sled down the jump. And we also took the gondola ride up to the top of Whiteface mountain. I wanted to go skiing but too many of us were previously injured and wouldn't have been able to enjoy it.
