Is it just me??? - Page 2

post #31 of 49
I check the board about twice a day whilst paper working and post when relevant (at least I hope so)
I am planning a little New England Ski Safari at the end of the month so I will probably post a trip report upon my return

Sometimes it's better to say nothing at all.

There have been times when I have been here too, but have just read and not responded.

Nah, we midwest skiers need something to hope for.

This site is all about comraderie, and it goes through periods where some of the people who are active aren't really 'clued in' to how that works in print.

Whether the tone be bullying, bragging, or just plain obnoxious behavior; some posts can have a negative effect that hampers the best efforts of the well intentioned. Thankfully, many of the seasoned regulars show up 'en masse' to control this activity at given times of the year. Some are much better at it than others, but it is easy to see the efforts of some being the 'glue' that holds this site together. ..To those people I extend a HUGE 'THANK YOU".

...To others with attitude problems they are working through; I will use the common tactic of the board, and ignore you.

It all works out in the end. .... LURKERS RULE!

P.S. - I realize I have often been included in the groupings producing a negative effect, and appreciate the gentle persuasion so many on this site have offered over the years.

Heh. You think YOU have that problem, you ought to try being a physicist at a party.

Cute grrl: "Now, what do you do?"

...."I'm a physicist."

Cute grrl: "Err ... umm ... Well, that's just sooo deep."

At that point, they either want to talk earnestly about astrology or decide they need to leave to wash the floor in their parent's double-wide.

Dentists, morticians and IRS agents may be even lower, but I'm really not sure.
Instead of being a CPA, Jeff once wanted to be an Actuary, but he didn't have the personality for it. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Well, Tom... a good skiing buddy of mine is a mortician and a county coroner. He always brings great stories. Gruesome, but great. Maybe it's a guy thing. Probably cute girls are too squimish for those tales.

You should try spinning the tale or two about exploding novas and imploding galaxies. Girls might like that.

You just got to be more open... Direct your comment to a person and they will respond to you.

Woooo Hooooooo............ Don't know yet. But if I do it will be at Bittersweet in MI. They have a decent place.

Heck... My hubby like to take the girls in his Rig sometimes and one Saturday he had a run to a paper making place that takes wood chips. He took all of us up in it, dropped us off a McDonals( I know I know...bad bad but it has a play place and chicken salads). We were only one mile from bittersweet and all these people wearing skiing/snowboarding stuff.

I was screaming inside:" WWWHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! I want to go skiing."

I will let you know when I am going in PM... These Corn fields are getting old and cold.

Went to Bittersweet 2 weeks ago. The place was pretty busy. Several runs weren't groomed very well, they were icy.
Had a good time with the kiddos until the son did a face plant in the lodge into a stack of plastic crates : Got a shiner out of it, he thought it was cool to go to school with his "souvenir"

I don't post much because I don't KNOW much, especially compared to the many experts posting here.

But I do read the forum almost every day during ski season, and I've gotten some fantastic information. With people like Pierre, Ott, Bob Barnes, and Lisamarie posting, I feel like I'm getting a free education some days.

I'm off to Lake Tahoe for ten days as of this afternoon, so I guess I'll be taking a break from my reading [img]smile.gif[/img]

I think Oboe hit the nail on the head early on.

I also found early on that taking the time to read some of the technical post here by some of the aformentioned (B. Barnes, Lars, Pierre, PhyMan, (by the way PhysicsMan, hear-hear!!) that I learned how ignorant I was. Now I find that I read often, post rarely and learn more. In fact I don't think I've ever posted in technical, gear, etc. I just use those areas to ask questions and learn!

ANYway,

Abasin today!!!!
post #44 of 49
Me too, I tend to post little and read a lot...I know that if
everyone of us were to do this, there would be not site at all...
BTW, I'll be catching the bus with my kids at 13.00 (cet)...
Instead of spending the afternoon at home or in a swimming pool we'll take the 40 minutes bus drive to the nearest runs and spend the afternoon there.
An afternoon at the local resort is better than nothing!!!
Back home by 19.00...
Ciao.

LMAO... Kids.

YA, Bittersweet tends to be very icy. That why Have a metal ski's that cut into the ice. One run I would never take unless they had a really good snow fall is this narrow path coming off the intermediate lift. Its a straight drop on both sides and I am not that confident in my leg strength to cut into it when its icy.

Ever been to Swiss Valley??? Its small Very small.

ok, I'll start posting more. If we all post at least every couple of days, we should get some good discussions going [img]smile.gif[/img]

LMAO! I learn to ski there too. But back then I was only 3 and had a God Father on ski Patrol that taught me how to ski.

Heheh.... I have great memories in the old ski lodge.

Little rugrat, mixing with teenagers(high school club mom shaperoned(sp?) ),bugging them, exposing the kissing couples [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img] (man they loved me).

Taking off down the hills to escape my mother when it was time to go.... Sending the teenage boys after me to catch me(age 5-8). Getting carried off the slope over someone's shoulder while the other swipes my ski's... : [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Ahhhhh Those was the days. :
