Slider- Oh how you lie lie lie! Snowing in the Cascades? - hehehehe Yeah- Bachelor got some. Wish I could get over there.
Now- lookie here... Quit using tennis shoes for ski boots! Yes, I know you can't part with you Nikes... oh - wait... that's right, you use Keds!
You see, folks, Slider's problem is the bumps. he can't have fun skiing without bumps so what he did was, while waxing up, he made his iron passes veeerrrrry slow at the tips then very slow at the boot and verrrry slow at the tails. What this did was warp the metal in his skis at those areas on the bases. This bows the bases up in those places. Results? He gets instant and constant bumps as he skis... problem solved.... But that causes his shins to move up and down inside his boots. After much scientific research I finally found the answer to his problem.
Now... to alleviate the shin problem he might want to pack the shin area with cotton on the inside of those high top Keds and maybe add some Vaseline as well. Also some Munroe double action shocks attached to the front of the skis and straped around the legs. To be OSHA compliant add rear-view mirrors to his goggles and a horn off of a Mack truck. He might want to add side wheels so when he tips on edge too far he won't boot out. Instead of wheels he can replace them with little skis on each side. In his water pack he can add Prosac and Vallium. This way he can be very calm and happy about it! From his know-it-all friend- Bob
Seriously- I don't have an answer, but it seems that the shin is perhaps moving forward in the different arc than the top of the boot is rather than moving together as one unit as it were. This might cause chafing. How to solve? I don't know... heel lifts of different thicknesses until the forward arc travel of the shin matches the forward arc of the boot top? Just a stab in the dark. Bob BTW- Any Meadows get-togethers coming soon?
