The Mammoth Huskies go on the road tonight in their first serious road game of the season.
The opponent, Boron (4-1), is one thing. But the biggest adjustment the Huskies (2-2) might face is the bus.
â€śYou canâ€™t put a kid on a bus and expect him to ride for five hours,â€ť said Coach Tom Gault after a mid-week practice this week. â€śItâ€™s especially hard for the junior varsity,â€ť he said. â€śThey have to ride the bus, jump off and be ready to play (at 4 oâ€™clock).â€ť
So how much is the â€śbus advantage?â€ť
There was always a certain kind of charm to the old house trailer/rental hut at Mammothâ€™s Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center. Wasnâ€™t there?
Um, no, actually, there wasnâ€™t.
It was cramped for space, the stairs somehow always seemed whopperjawed in ice and snow, and not even the enduring charm of cross-country ski director Ueli Luthi could mitigate the scene.
This season, the house trailer is history except as a storage space. In its place is the old cabin from Samâ€™s Woods, and a new tent structure that is similar to the one at Little Eagle Lodge at Chair 15/Eagle Express.
