  • Dream weaver: Kauk’s visions help prepare him for Winter X Games

    By John Marshal
    AP Sports Writer

    Lonnie Kauk dreams...

    Not the fantastical daydreams of others, of winning the lottery or wishing he could fly. His are more like visions, images of the past and future that mold him, prepare him for the challenges of life.

    Kauk imagines himself in a previous existence as a warrior shaman or samurai, a noble protector who never wavers from his beliefs. The present dreams come while lying in bed, visualizing himself as this little character who does amazing things on a snowboard, an alter ego he can slip into while shredding the mountain.
