The two RV Gypsies went tubing down
a mountain in Virginia,
without any snow
and Lee ran over Karen
August 8, 2014

Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre offers a very extensive ski and snowboard school with certified instructors. Snowflex is a synthetic material designed to simulate the slip and grip effects of snow. A patented misting system keeps the surface moist, maximizing speed and edge control. Snowflex retains its shape year-round so riders can progressively sharpen their technique on its various contours. Unlike previous terrain technologies, Snowflex has multiple layers to cushion skiers and snow-boarders if they fall. However, when the two RV Gypsies were here, there was NOT any snow.

The two RV Gypsies chose their tube and stepped onto the first of two gentle, but steep, moving walkways up to the top of the mountain.

Check it out!Karen sat in her tube, ready to experience the thrill of spinning around 360 degrees while going down the track at Snowflex. Lee filmed from the bottom.

There is a video of Lee flying down the slope, and plowing into Karen as she was videotaping him and turning her leg all black and blue. Lee was lucky he didn't fly off of the mountain. People were commenting on how fast Lee was going, but while looking in the camera's viewing lens, she just didn't realize how close he was getting to her and could not move out of the way. (It had started sprinkling a light rainfall and the track got too slick, causing Lee to speed). The video can be found by using the TOC button above and choosing "Movies / Videos" located under the red menu. But first, finish scrolling down this page to see the area that finally stopped Lee from going over the edge of the cliff.

Below: The big red and blue stopper at the bottom of the mountain that saved Lee from going over the edge when his tube did not stop at the bottom of the track. Bet this wasn't the first time someone didn't stop.

The big red and blue stopper
