Does someone actually stand that close to the guy with the stick?

Looks like EpicSki moderators have more time to move General Discussion  threads to different forums where nobody can find them.

I never look at the individual forums anyway, just New Posts and Subscriptions. So if they move a thread I don't even know.

Same here.  I thought everyone did that?

Unless I find a killer deal on a local wine that I know to be good, I prefer to buy from the source. Besides. You can't do a tasting at the supermarket. Bonus points if the winemaker is doing the pouring.

Me three. We just proved how pathetically addicted we are, I think.

In order of frequency - road bike, mountain bike, kayak touring, whitewater kayaking.  Road biking comes first mostly because it's so convenient (can start at the house) and I commute to work as much as possible via bike (28m rt). And ww kayaking comes last just because the planning and scheduling involved -- closest water is 2 hours away in 3 different directions.

 

Have gotten into triathlon a bit in the past few years - but I truly hate running.

Still a month left of ski season here. But after that it'll be kiteboarding and inline skating: slalom (cone skating), skate park, skate-to-ski, and a bit of racing. 

 

Fall is my "dead zone" now, but fortunately that's a long way off.

I work out in the gym 3 times a week, do a lot of windsprints( Sprint 8 program, but more like sprint 15) twice a week, and I play alot of tennis. (singles against the young guys, keeps me moving) andI of course think about next ski season. I have gotten into a bad habit of surfing the net for gear sales, when I really don't need anything. I fear large amounts of cash may leave my hands resulting in all kinds of new gear arriving by UPS at the house.LOL!

Rock climbing here. It's keeps me active and in very good shape during the summer. Although I am already counting the days till the first snow.

It's cheaper than skiing - has to be because the sailing season is seven months long and ski season is only 4.

 

Of course, sometimes I just cruise with my wife, and when there's no wind we kayak.  I do a bit of biking, but not with the passion and interest that skiing brings.

Nice. Albacore dinghy - luv it. Reminds me of the 420 I used to sail/race back in the day (and the Lasers and Finns...). Wish we had some one-design dinghy fleets around these parts... but most of the organized sailing revolves around keels or on the smaller side J24s or cats. I've always enjoyed the great freedom of a light planing dinghy with some ample sail...

Thanks for prompting some great memories beercheer.gif

well cycling is 12 mos around here... and we have a large group of strong riders in the area. April and May are usually the months I suffer, trying to get back up to speed with the other riders in the area. On the plus side, a late Aril start keeps me excited for the rest of the year, when a lot of others are into burn-out by August. There's hardly a day from April to Nov when I won;t have a little time on 2 wheels. It's all good.

 

Hiking is great around here, but competes with skiing, cause once we get into May, the local mountains are really HOT, and hiking can be oppressive - especially for me. I'm always a bit more comfortable when cool/cold as opposed to hot. Course having some time in the Sierras, in the summer is always a special treat.

It's really hard to make time for all the outdoor things we have available to us. Not a bad place to be.

Still squeezing out a few more weeks of skiing, yard work for a few weekends then it's Camping, hiking, boating and Elk hunting. Loving life in the Northwest.

Here's a short video of a cool Elk Hunting experience, no elk were injured in this, pretty awesome experience. Enjoy.
