My first attempt at Turns All Year

I managed to ski 10 months in a row on my first attempt from October 2012 through July 2013. I’m currently a couple weeks out from month 11 on my second attempt!

Here’s a re-cap of my first attempt:

And then I managed to be on call or caving the entire month of August, 2013. It was great year for caving in the Scapegoat, but I broke my streak. It was inspiring, and this time I’m hoping for at least 100 months! Okay, I’ll take 12 months to start…Wish me luck!
