hey, i got 4 joyous days out on my Spats this season.
not much of a return on my investment (= $100 a day), but if I get out on 'em 4 days next year, too, then I'll start to get somewhere.
i believe El Chupa is plunking down on some Praxis for him and the missus. So he'll get a new pair of custom reverse cambers skis for the same price i paid for 3 year old Spats (the Praxis are pre-selling for 2008 for around $400).
oh yeah, kids were out on 'Toon and DPs last weekend slurping up the Spring slush. go figure.
