Where I stayed
So when we got everything set up, we hopped in a dune buggy (which was a push start, haha!) and zoomed through mountains of sand
The first stop we made was a small hill. We practiced a few times since it was easy to walk back up this small hill- first we stood, then we sat down on the board, and once more we stood up. Then our driver took us to medium sized hill and we went down in standing position. Then we went to a steep hill and tried laying down face first- soooo much fun!!! I would have been screaming more “WooHoo's” but sand would have gotten in my mouth! Then we went even steeper and tried standing position. I let both Emma and Rich go first, they both got small scrapes from some tumbling falls, so I went reallllly slowly all the way down and didn't get scraped at all. Lots of sit down falls, but I didn't get hurt:)
And when we were going back we saw a fox which is supposed to be good luck, because when do you see a fox in the desert!
And there's one other thing that sticks out in my mind about this adventure- at one point the driver said “I love my job!” I think that's the first time anyone has said that and I actually believe them!
