EpicSki is Awesome

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Hey, been away awhile. I have stayed very active in the web-forum posting world, but not related to skiing. Mostly have been arguing with people about beLIEfs (religion).

Anyways, coming back now - one thing is very clear. Compared to forums about anything: physics, religion, security, politics . . . EpicSki is actually one of the most coherently and clearly formatted and administered topical discussion forums out there is cyberspace!

Kudo's to AC and Dchan!

What Todd said, and double kudos to AC and dchan. Another wonderful aspect of this site is the group of people - and I mean the GROUP of people - who post here. It's diverse, varied, and somehow we manage to come to terms and stay. And just when you think you've come to know a guy like Ott Gangl, he knocks your socks off with one WILD AND CRAZY POST!

Hey KeeTov, did I notice an "eh" in your post?! Your signature says you're from New York!

You get two minutes for impersonating a Canuck, my friend. You may serve your sentence in the Longhorn at Whistler whilst you buy me a beer... eh?

Guilty as charged!

I enjoyed the CSCF Level 1 course so much, I thought I would practice the accent for awhile.

Next summer I'm in Australia, so I'm alternating between ... eh?.... and g'day mate.

I might have to buy a lot of folks beer!

Welcome back at Todd. I think that others will agrre that your insight has been missed this summer.

Nifty, innit? Somehow there's a total absence of w@nkrs and silly bvggers, and tons of excellent info. To get stuff like this, you usually have to go buy a book, and it often won't answer all your questions. it's definitely the pre-eminent ski discussion site on the net.

Hey, Ant, you may be on to something! Do you think we could publish a joint effort book? We definitely have the ski pros. Also, there is Gmolfoot for bootfit and gear info, do we have any telemark teachers? I think there's also some fitness chic somewhere.

The Barking Bears Complete Guide to Skiing

Whatd'ya think???

Hey Todd have you ever heard of George carlins bit called "guys named todd"?

It's quite commical.

Not that I knew you before, but welcome back.

Hey - thanks guys. Don't know that Carlin bit, that reminds me of a great Kids In The Hall bit called "Daves I Know" -- its a great music skit.

Okay, seriously, now [img]smile.gif[/img] , what would be the logistics involved in pulling something like that off.

I am an infinitely better "idea" person than I am a "carry out" person, so I can only add suggestions to content.

First, it may be a good idea to look for certain common themes that exist throughout the different forums. An example would be a thread in technique about someone being in the backseat, and another gear that relates to it.

I often post fitness threads based on stuff that comes up in technique. The AGILITY thread was inspired by the SHORT TURNS thread.

Any other thoughts?

A Resort Review section, with, other than a review and lift info, links, runs info, and all, an historical and cultural background info too, maybe?

Matteo, we are on the same wavelenghts! It could be sort of a "real reviews from real people" sort of thing. You can also do reviews from different participants based on skill level.

Ott and Bob Peters can do some historical info.
Maybe I should start a different thread on this so I don't become guilty of thread hijacking! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Guys named Bruce, Dylan, and Todd will NOT like the Carlin routine. Guys named Al, Lefty, and Gus will like it fine.

Welcome back, GG. Congrats on penning a new tome.

Nice to see you back, Todd. ....Ott

Thanks Ott - good to 'see' you!

Nolo, my real first name is William - but my parents called me by my middle name my whole life. William is certainly not an improvement over "Todd", nor is the varient "Bill" really. I like Carlin, I'll have to look for that - could care less about my name!

One very handy thing though, is that since my legal name is different than the name every family, friend, business associate and etc use . . . if somebody calls my home or office asking for "William" I know they are not anybody I want to talk to! Works very well.

When someone calls our house wanting to talk to the one who makes decisions, I say, "Not here!"

(Todd is a fine name in all respects except its meaning in German.)

William Todd Murchison. Hmmm, sounds more like a professor of English Literature. Doesn't quite suit you.
Billy Todd, sounds like a freestyle skier! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Your name could be anything, almost, and it wouldn't help to define you in my eyes, Todd. What does a lot to define you is your expertise in skiing and the philosophical thoughts you've shared with me.

Thanks guys/gals!

Names are actually a huge issue for us right now because we are expecting a baby boy in December! Girl names seem easier. We named our Daughter Mayah Anne. But with guys, I would like a name that is more interesting than mine . . . but I also don't want the little guy getting taunted and beaten up at school because of his name!

So I'm searching for interesting, cool-sounding guy names . . . that won't make the kid a target though!

Well if you come up with a few choices, you can always use our newly added Poll Feature! [img]smile.gif[/img]

This is a wicked hot summer for any woman to be in her last few months of pregnancy! Yikes!
