Get ready Jamie Anderson and Sage Kotsenburg for your next big challenge, if global warming accelerates and, as reported in the NY Times Sunday Review on 2/9/14, there might soon be a scarcity of places to host the Winter Games! Steven Guynn read this article with interest and NYTimes columnist Thomas Friedman's book "Hot, Flat and Crowded" -- and Steven naturally decided it was high time to bring to the attention of the world a very good new candidate for future Winter Olympics, the Cerro Negro Volcano in Nicaragua, where he tested the site by personally snowboarding down the clean slopes, black lava gravel and soft volcanic ash of the Volcano, which is already the site of a notable world record. This is the very same slope on which Eric Barone of France (the "Baron Rouge") set the world bicycle-on-gravel speed record of 107 miles per hour on May 12, 2002 -- but then, moments after setting the record to the oohs and aahs of a large crowd, crashed catastrophically and according to witnesses, bounced into the air several times, breaking several ribs and suffering grievous bodily injury. His life was spared by a strong helmet and phenomenally good luck. Knowing this, Steven Guynn remained undaunted in his determination to conduct the test as he hiked up Cerro Negro with his snowboard, and he was soon rewarded with a thrilling flight down the mountain on the very same slope that nearly ended the illustrious stunt career of the Baron Rouge. Looking back on his wild ride, Steven Guynn observes that the spectacular Cerro Negro drop, even without any snow, could be a stunning crowd pleaser, much like the dangerous drops of the Sochi slopes. And just like the #Sochi resort situated on the Black Sea, Cerro Negro (and a whole range of other dramatic volcanoes, some of them actively puffing away and occasionally spewing rock and lava) is located near the historic Spanish Colonial City of Leon, recently named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and featuring astonishing white sandy beaches on the Pacific Coast.
