    Forum appreciation

    I appreciate PASR for allowing me to meet fun people and great skiers and have lots of fun in Blue's parking lot. I also appreciate PASRs forgiving me for my dickish flu thread. I live on a mountain in VT now with backcountry skiing and will be working at a ski resort this winter, but I will always miss Blue for the great night skiing, fast lifts, and fun trails.

    Skison 18/19

    I'm on my town's EMS Fast Squad and they are paying me to become an EMT this fall. That seems to mean that I am by default a ski patroller at Ascutney. (If you've seen me ski, don't worry: it's just a rope tow). Still deciding whether to get a job or be a ski bum this winter. I want to be a way better skier, not a plodding, intermediate weekender.

    Come do a double diamond mountain bike trail some time GSS. We'll make a video. Mwahaha ha.

    Love the Lower Yough! Open boating is a lot easier on the legs. C1is for hard-core masochists with mad skills! 🙂

    You can't actually sell weed in VT; you're allowed to possess up to an ounce/six plants. But I think the legislature is trying to make sure that as the laws broaden and sales eventually become legal, that big out-of-state growers don't swoop in and dominate the industry. It would be nice to get my weed the way I get my tomatoes and kale: from the farm that grows it.

    Nah, I had to get shit done today; plus MJ is a lot more potent now than when I was a young Deadhead. I need to see where I stand with it. Last time I smoked I was sitting in a friend's living room thinking "I guess I live in this easy chair now because evidently, I've lost the ability to move my limbs."

    Might be fun if I get some seeds. Stupid easy to find people who already grow it, though. I think Vermont is trying to keep production local to boost the ag economy. More farmers' markets than dispensaries, e.g.

    I think I just accidentally reported a post. Totally accidental click. I haven't even used my new water pipe yet! Sorry mods!

    I didn't when I was teaching; too risky, job-wise. Now I live where it's legal, so no harm no foul. Why no beakers?

    Ski Season 17 - 18 thread

    I started whitewater paddling when I moved to PA from New Orleans, so about twelve years ago. I got into it via my school's little outing club, which was heavily whitewater focused. When I became interested in skiing and then mtb I sold my beloved Blackfly Ion and my custom-made Millbrook Schacho in order to get myself kitted out. I miss those boats, especially the Ion. I still have the rest of my gear and can always borrow a boat, but tbh I love mountain biking, and since I can pop out the door and go riding alone, I get more use out of the bike. It's also better exercise, which I desperately need.

    You do have a foam pedestal that you're sitting on as well, so it's not too bad; and the bigger/wider the boat, the more comfortable your legs are. Plus every time you flip over and swim, it's an opportunity to stretch your legs!

    Fair enough. But if you kneel in a kayak and paddle with one blade, you're canoeing, not kayaking. Alpine vs. telemark skiing, e.g.

    This is Dane Jackson paddling C-1 (which is closed-boat canoeing. Single-blade, and you're kneeling in a kayak with a spray skirt attached to the cockpit.)
