On Sunday I threw a picnic! The food was great and all, but the real star of the day was ice blocking.
Earlier that morning I went over to the giant ice machine and bought 50 lbs worth of ice blocks. Then I loaded up my trailer, with picnic supplies, towels, yadda, yadda yadda.
Ice blocking is a traditional activity for places that have very little in the way of entertainment. THe concept is simple. Take a block of ice and a towel, go find a grassy incline of some kind. Go to the top, sit on top of the ice, using the towels as a frigidity buffer. Slide down the hill.
It's fun. I promise.
