    Seriously, WTF is with this Weather?

    Today was nice, and I guess next Saturday might be nice too.

    Yep. Got an oil change, new tires, inspections and brakes fixed all in one shot so I should be good for a while.

    I assume (e.g. speculate) they will be covered by insurance to some degree? @toast21602 Thanks for the shout out!

    Based on time and direction of the flight. Sitting in the sun the whole flight sucks because I have to put my window shade down due to the heat, and I like looking out the window.

    Nice. Though I always try to select a seat that isnt by the wing. I always pick the side of the plane that the sun isnt.

    Thanks for the offer but I'm going to stay with my RTMs. They are really great skis. Maybe Atomic wants them since they are named after him??

    Nah, I dont do swimming because I'm scared of sharks. I just drove there and back in the same day, took a total of 6 hours of driving.

    I found a nice spot on the beach yesterday which wasn't too crowded. I was going to complain on here about it for the lols but there was no wifi.

    Is alpinezone gone?

    We cant because Grilled Steeze is banned, so it looks like we'll just stay on this site forever.

    This is great! Are they still talking about that epic legendary newspaper article about the Vail acquisition of Blue that was released on the first day of April?

    Ohio sucks though. Such a long boring state to drive through.

    The most interesting landscapes in America are in the west. I've been to Arizona, Idaho, California, Colorado, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming, and enjoyed them all. I also really like the vast open farmlands of Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska. Most people find them boring. The mountains of New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Virginia are pretty beautiful, just not as cool as out west.

    Thanks Toast. Didnt take any pics. I did the full 100 last year, the hills at the end are pretty brutal. For me 6 hours on the bike is long enough anymore.

    I got eggs, sausage, bacon, potato things, bananers and Blue berries. It was a very good breakfast. Now I'm at Thomas Jeffersons house at Montisello.

    It was 90+ in southern Virginia yesterday. I opted for a 75 mile bike ride instead of 100. Sitting in AC and drinking unlimited YooHoos was better than being on the bike 2 more hours in that heat, while I waited for my bruhs to ride the 100.

    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:
