Before you start reading this, im warning you it will take a while. So if your just looking for a quick post, hit the little back button the tool bar at the top. Other wise here is my story. I wanna ride quebec this march break, but my rents are worried and wont let me go. Ive tried everything. So i came across this. PLEASE read it and give any feedback you can. THANK YOU.
Dear Mom and Dad, you once told me, a long time ago, that you knew someone that wrote letters to their parents when ever they requested something. Since communication verbally hasn’t resulted in a positive manner, I figure ill give this a try.
Everyone in the world remembers there childhood, which influences how they live life in a greater spectrum as time passes by. As my years growing up have been fun and enjoyable so far, its trips and occasions you remember to the highest degree. We have been on many trips that I have enjoyed. We have been to the beautiful west coast, the east coast, as well as left the country for a countless number of times to Florida and our trip to Mexico. Now that another trip has come up, and I would like to partake in it.
This has already been addressed previously; however I feel that some communication and description was not evident. The main issue I have come to realize you have with this trip to Quebec is safety, which is very understandable. Seeing as how I cannot feel the way you feel about me, I’m thinking about what I would feel if my skis both snapped in pieces. Although the ideas and feelings are similar, there two totally different degrees on life. Let me insure you on what is 99.9% guaranteed. The first is that we will always have a place to stay. This is at Steve’s grandparent’s cottage. The second is that if we are ever in trouble, that there is always a phone (mine or house) to call for help. The third is that Steve’s grandparents are 45 minutes away, if desperately needed.
What I feel is the second biggest issue is transportation, which is an aspect of safety. I understand you barley know Andrew, and that you are apprehensive of his experience and skill as a driver, in what could potentially be snowy and icy road conditions, for a 7 hour trip. All I can say to this is that he has over 5 years of driving practice. Sure he is not near as experienced driver as someone that has 10 years of driving behind there belt. So let me ask you this. Why am I allowed in a car with Ben Harrison, at age 16, to drive me around? Because he took drivers education, and learned how to drive properly? Maybe. Because he learned how to drive cautiously in change of road conditions thoroughly? Maybe. Or is it because he’s a responsible person? Maybe. Well, Andrew has all this knowledge, as well as 5 years on Ben. I also have to say those 5 years are visible when sitting in the passenger seat of both vehicles. I respect Andrew on how he drives; taking caution with every/any situation that arises. As well, to how he modifies his vehicle. It is always running safely, and recently all weather tires were purchased for the winter season.
What could potentially be another issue is personal responsibility. When I am gone, I have gone to ski. There will be nothing that happens that you need to worry about. That’s all I have to say about this topic. I haven’t messed up yet, and it will remain that way.
In conclusion, I have to say, that this could perhaps be the trip of my life. I love everything about skiing. This is why I pursue my goals within the sport. The knowledge that I would gain from this trip would give me more experience then I would ever learn from just Dagmar/Lakeridge towards moving out west in years to come. I will meet new people, cope with new surroundings, and above all be safe and have fun. This is why I’m dying to go on this trip. Not to mention the fact that what would cost me air fair, I am getting: lift tickets, food, contributing an equal fair of transportation fees, and free accommodation. I realize that you are concerned deeply about me, which understandable. I feel I have expressed myself contently and thoroughly, and as guardians it’s up to you to make the call. On one last note, I am going to remind you of a quote mom, which you use every so often. “You have to take chances, or you will go nowhere in life”
