What skis for the Caribbean?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Screw the Rockies, and the Alps, and everywhere else.

This is where the smart ski money is going this year.

I'm shooting for something slopeside.

There's more snow on that boat than in Maine.

Rocker "technology," at least 120mm wide at the waist. Without a doubt. I should know, being born in the Caribbean.

Best regards,

Don't show that picture to my wife, she'll look at it and try to get me to go on it by saying she'll get to go on the cruise she wants while I get to ski.

the link is broken, and all the links to it from the grind site are broken as well. looks like the content was taken down??

Read somewhere that this was fake. The Grind article appears to be gone, and I found this link: http://www.nordicskiracer.com/news.asp?NewsID=5582 from April 1. I'm guessing this is a joke that just kept on giving combined with some poor research at Grind?

 

I figure if there really was such a thing, every outdoor, pop culture and tech blog would have covered the crap out of it, but there doesn't seem to be much of anything on it per Google search.

Yahoo Spoofed: Caribbean Ski Season Opens Atop Innovative Cruise Ship

 

Today I was reading Yahoo News when I saw a weird story featured on the front page about a cruise ship named "iglu cruise ship" in the Caribbean where you can snow ski on the top deck.  I clicked on it the link which took me to the article below.  

Yes, there is an iglucruise website; it is a travel agency in the U.K.  But no, there is not an iglu cruise ship where you can ski.  I remember receiving a link to a story similar to this earlier this year, and it turned out to be an April Fool's joke.  Yahoo just picked up the story which has been floating around since April, and didn't check out whether it was legitimate.

Um, well, yes they do. wink.gif

Fact is, my Dad (from The County, as was his father, and his grandfather, and his great-grandfather, since the founding of the town of Houlton) was in the Navy for a few years, stationed in Antigua. I was born on that island, but we left when I was 1 1/2 years old, so I don't have many memories. I do seem to have an inexplicable taste for good rum, though!

So while I think of myself still as a Mainer with deep roots that go back many generations, the dirty little secret is that I was not actually born there. To be a true Mainer, you have to be born there--and even that doesn't count for much if your parents or their parents might have been "from away." All it takes is a great aunt or second cousin who has ever crossed the border into New Hampshire, and the locals will look at you crosswise and say things behind your back. As they say up there, "just 'cause your cat has kittens in the oven, it don't make 'em biscuits." Oh, the shame!

Sigh....

Happy Holidays, D1.
Bob

Bob, did not mean to "out" you.eek.gif

In my book, you'll always be a potato picker no matter where you got hatched.

But you sure the island you was born on wasn't Presque Isle?.

I'm thinking, like, potato jerky. Could be the new State Fruit.

Cheers to you, fellow Mainer
