Pope on a Slope

He was really one of the great statesmen of the 20th Century, and after many days of extensive media coverage, many
of us know a lot more about the Pope than we did before he departed for a better place.

But most people are probably still unaware that the Pope was quite the outdoorsmen in his time. Yes, according to this
Outside article, the Pope could
really carve a turn. In fact, he owned a pretty sweet pair of 195-centimeter Head Pros with Tyrolia bindings.

Dude! Cool. Yes, back in Poland the Pontiff, or JP2 as he is affectionately known, was a hiker, kayaker, and a
hard-core camper. That explains now the  smell of campfire smoke wafting from the Pope’s quarters late at night
and the odd overnight packages arriving from REI.
