  2. I clicked the wrong reaction button.
  3. Oops, thought it was a musical instrument.
  4. I beat all the songs on expert on Guitar Hero 3 except Raining Blood... that's pretty much just as impressive as real guitar.
  5. Used to listen to them quite a bit, still do occasionally. More into power metal these days.
  6. If The Beagles would play some Iron Maiden or Killswitch Engage that would be epic.

    Seriously, WTF is with this Weather?

    When I woke up today there was nothing going on here so I posted the Camelback update to get some conversation going. But I see a lot of high quality content now, which is great!!!

    Trip Report - 3/4/2019 (PASR Day)

    Hey all, Just got back from a fun session at Camelback, and it was the best session I had there all season. In da house were Enjoralas, Enjoralas's Dad, and many many others. I arrived at the CBK Lodge bright and early at 0828 and had the first civilian parking spot, which was only 26 steps from the snow. This spot was easily the best parking spot I've ever had at any ski resort. I skied down to the Stevenson Lift at 0846 and there were maybe 12 people in line already on the hotel side. But since they dilly dallyed around, I got the first civilian chair of the day which was sick and I only had to share it with one other dude. First run down Pocono Raceway was deeeeep - 3, perhaps 4 inches of fresh Powder. I gasped for air because I forgot my snorkel, but it was an amazing run. Then I did Nile Mile, which was groomed, and some other very exciting runs. Shortly before 1000 I ran into Enjoralas & his dad, and we did several runs together. Enjoralas referred to the new terrain park as a Toboggan Sled, since skier's left is narrow AF, and there's no barrier on the left to prevent accidental skiing into the woods. This trail was not so great and had thick ice sheets at the top. Rest of the trails got choppy, and there were moguls on all black runs, Cliffhanger (a true double black), and Big Pocono. Enjoralas did Big Pocono and then we did The Rocket together which was ROTD. Lots of nice fresh purd and not a whole lot of ice. Then we split and met up again later in the day, and I went inside for some coffee and a double Steezeburger. It was baffling because they put the sugar by the ketchup, outside of the cafeteria area, instead of next to the coffee, cream, stirrers, etc. A worker admitted it's a stupid arrangement. Overall it was a very fun day, one of the best of the skison without a doubt. Nile Mile and Julius Caesar became downright rowdy by the afternoon, despite being easy runs, with plenty of Rollers which gave me mad air (about 2 inches). I think it was gaper day because there were so many gapers. One guy was sitting right under a huge jump on Pharoah, in the blind spot. You know just hanging out. I heckled him and told him that's not the smartest place on the mountain to sit. Also getting off lifts was hard today, and 50% of lift disembarkings involved dodging fallen jerrys. Two interesting interactions on the lift. Some girl told me she works in an ER and sees traumatic brain injuries from skiing all the time, yet she doesn't wear a helmet so I called her out on that. Also some guy called me a giant fucking toolbag because I accidentally cut in line... I thought there were 3 people in the row I joined but there were 4, so I went ahead. This is the second time I accidentally cut in line, yesterday I did by accident at the Dollar General buying a giant bag of Meow Mix and some guy said "How Wude" or something. Maybe tomorrow I'll make it 3 in a row. Overall JADIP SU JO PO. Please post all dinner pictures and related discussions in the comments below:

    For anyone who was going to Camelback today, they're closed due to inclement weather but the tubing hill is still open from 12-8 so you can still tube, if you want. TFTI

    Wow thanks for inviting me and offering to pay for my flight and meal with all those Benjamins. This is sick! Maybe Toast or Atomic will want middle seat.

    Dozens. If you invite me to the skifari I'll sit by you on the plane and tell you stories for the entire duration of the flight, including taxiing from and to the gates and during boarding/deplaning.

    Was going to suggest it but assumed the idea would get shut down. They probably dont let you tailgate in the parking lot. They wouldn't even let me ride my bike thru the lot, I was supposed to walk it to the road which was absurd (I didnt).

    Yeah they're fun and rad. I like drops and speed, not a fan of inversions.

    Knoebels is a nice low key amusement park in a rural setting with lots of trees and cricks and streams as you city slickers call them. Free admission is great and you can just walk around and get food and go on a couple rides.

    Gore 3/21-23

    I think that's entirely possible at Killington if it's near freezing. I've encountered different conditions from the top of K1 gondola going down Great Northern, which I found very cool. Like fog at the top and then sunny at the bottom

    I just like A Change of Seasons (by Dream Theater). And it's nice being able to go outside without having to wear my A Christmas Story hat. I don't care for cream filled eggs, my preferred spring time candy is Peeps.

    Winter is ok, but spring will always be my favorite season.

    Oh shoot I guess I did, hopefully I'll get around to updating my stats eventually. TFTI

    Oh no, I was certain I exercised the utmost extreme care and diligence in maintaining my stats this season. I hope this doesn't mean my life long dream and aspiration of becoming Unofficial Assistant Stats Manager is in dire jeopardy.

    The issue though is stats. Stats are everything. Without stats where would we be? Skiing without purpose. If you ski 1 or 2 runs and quit, the philosophical question is should that be logged as a full session for stats purposes? Or should the stats program be modified to allow for half or even quarter sessions? Stats are life. This change would give me a better shot at earning the number one stats spot for the ski season, which means everything to me.

    Does GSSSucks say you only ski 1 hour per session or something??
