Shaking the Nut Bucket…

I’m trying to figure out why this story on the extreme sport of yak skiing appeals so much today. It’s certainly not the sport itself; I have no desire to be towed uphill by a yak racing downhill.


I think it’s some combination of wanting my own herd of yaks and this line from Peter Dorje, who runs the yak skiing business in North India: “Never shake the bucket of nuts before you’re tied to the yak rope.”

In between giggles, I’ve been mumbling those words all day as a reminder: don’t shoot off the email just yet, don’t rush to put the house on the market, and whatever you do, don’t send off a deposit on a cute little yak bull today.
