There is an evolution to folk's participation here. Hesitancy, aggression, timid, bold, humble, brash, dumb, wise, observant, reactive, heartfelt, patronizing, serious, flippant, happy, sad - the whole gamut. When you are feeling like a new evolution come back and enlighten us. It's all good. Also, it means everything in the world when you actually ski with some of the people on here rather than just jabber with them on the internet.
It's summer, not much happening in the northern half of the big blue marble. Just the same fifteen or twenty asshats, hanging out posting here present company included. That said, I've noticed that forums are dying in general. Most of the other forums I post in are fading away as long time members drop off and fewer and fewer new people become active regulars.
I would have thought that the Aussies and New Zealanders would have helped traffic over the summer months now that the forum is pretty well known internationally. Not really though. It seems that other than the handful of regulars this place is just a depository of gear search info for the rest of the world.
I know which one I am... which one are you?
There isn't an enormous amount of regulars from any particular area on EpicSki. Seems like a dozen from here, a dozen from there, a dozen from that other place, etc...
What he said.
Mayhaps we will make some turns around here some day. Your presence has made this a better place.
There are a few of us - but not many.
And the kiwi's are a bit quiet at the moment because it's early season and there is no snow - think Mammoth this last season
As a rule we don't do the WROD but this year that seems to be all there is.
I haven't been up yet - the only areas that don't involve flying have a base of volcanic scoria - and our normal stomping grounds don't have nearly enough to justify the airfares yet.
Anyway - hope it's just a break Markojp - enjoy your summer
Geez Mark...sorry to see you go. Your insights and timely posts will surely be missed by many--you always had a knack for bringing everyone here "back down to earth" whilst we debated our first world problems . I'll always remember our "debates" with CTKook, among others--hopefully this won't be permanent but if it is, stay in touch and I hope we can meet up at Schweitzer next season for some turns!!!!!!!
