The Slush Cup

I went up to Alyeska for the Slush Cup with my co-worker Kristen and her kids Hunter and Kaitlin. Also Max and Ryan who work with us were there too. I dressed up as a gangster, viking, bat lady with UNAVCO and Earthscope stickers all over me.

I was one of 40 crazy people to tuck as fast as I could down the hill and try to make it across a 100 ft pool of icy cold water without falling in. Some costumes were: a big banana, a moose poop, Borat, triathlon man, a gorilla, a penguin, Winnie the Poo, a drunken Bode Miller, Jesus…

Max wearing the viking wig. Looking good.

You would have to go off this jump, get some air, and glide across the pool.

I didn’t make it either…but I got some pretty awesome air and speed.

A friend in Florida was reading OK magazine and saw my picture in it! I have no idea how I got in , but I thought that was pretty sweet!
