looks like matteo hit the jack pot!!

maybe I'm wrong on this- but when I calculated my guess out I took the average for the past 6 months to find which day and approx. which hour it should fall on (jan. 4th 10 AM) and the past few weeks have been really slow on the registrations,

but anyhoo the morale is the story isss-- all you vistors out there (33 of them right now ) SIGN UP

Or in my personal language- SIGN UP YA MORONS

Sorry, Hel n Skis, no "guesses" after the fact.

Are you 4000? Maybe we could find a prize for that honor as well.

How are you fixed for long thongs?

Long thongs sounds kinky nolo. Maybe I could use a pair. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Ah, you're 4005! That's a cool number, but I'm not sure if it's worthy of long thongs.

Here's a trivia question: what are long thongs, are they still used, and why did they ever go away?

If you think of binding something in terms of being tightly wrapped; long thongs were used as part of very early ski bindings. Typically made of a carbon/kevlar weave . . . . :

In some seriousness, long thongs were made from strips of leather - approximately 1/8" thick by 3/8" wide - and wrapped tightly around a skiers leather boots several times to help secure the boot to the ski.

Other than demonstrations of old ski equipment, they are no longer used . . . . for skiing. Though 4005 may have some creative uses for them. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Long thongs, in combination with leather boots, were notorious for tib/fib fractures. With the advent of cable bindings - followed shortly thereafter by early release bindings i.e. Cubco, Miller, etc. - long thongs went the way of the Gooney bird. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Did I win?

What I'm not sure...

I was thinking the LT in modern form would be the powder cord or safety strap.

We called them Arlbergs too. The longer the better! The early skiers were rather fixated on the length of things.

Also according to the understanding I had as well, that would make it Matteo as the closest pick without it going past the time and date.

Congrats.. and Glad to know that Matteo is still with us considering some of his earlier predictions of possibly not being able to ski any more. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Thanks Dchan and Nolo. Wow!
To estimate the time and day, I simply selected a day which is
the end of the Christmas Holyday here in Italy.
Jan 6th is the day where the arrival of the Three kings to visit Our newborn Lord is celebrated...
And it's also a day called "La Befana" (the whitch), a good old lady who flies in the night between Jan 5th and Jan 6th to deliver a gift to the children:
-Sweets to those who've been good in the past year
-Carbon to those who have not been.
So the Befana has been good to me too!

As for skiing, I'll try to ski until the day will come.
As for Epicski, let's say I just took a short hiatus...
until I could clear my head a bit... [img]smile.gif[/img]
