Its actually my favorite small "suv" because its good enough to tow a small car around (can't do that with a CRV) and so on, but still much better driving than a real truck or SUV. I drove one to Myrtle Beach with the family last year and I was really sad that we didn't drive the Accord instead. With 4 people and a bunch of luggage it wasn't that comfortable to drive, and the brakes/suspension were noticeably overworked in DC/Virginia traffic.
Comprex, your point is well taken. I do very much like the community policed aspect of skiing, and hope that individual responsibility and community involvement will continue to make something like liability insurance for skiers unnecessary. I just think that many of the supposed risks are vastly overstated, and I feel that many EpicSkiers seem to think that mandatory liability insurance or something insane like that is important.
To be clear, I don't think things sticking out of a helmet is appropriate. I just wonder a little bit at the aggressive and incredibly serious responses people have to such a thing.
