sadly, i've been staring at my skis since the end of the season. I have a total of 7 pairs laying around the flat i rent in SF. 2 pairs of retired Rossi's, 3 pairs that I've put up on Craigslist, TGR, Epic, and SnowPals and still haven't sold, 2 pairs of brand new, still in the shrinkwrapping.
i, too, am totally out of shape, though i've started riding my bike to go to the movies, meet friends for dinner, and just get around town rather than taking the bus or driving.
i messed up my back the other weekend and it's just now starting to show the bruises and swelling, so i've been laying low (plus it started to rain here on Friday and early this morning...the weathermen were off by a day as they had forcasted Thursday rain and sunny weekend). i actually have contemplated trying the boots on a few times this week, but have resisted the tempation (mostly because they're buried under a stack of CDs.
going to Tahoe in 2 weeks for a wedding isn't gonna help matter much nor is the fact that i have to somehow make it out to Summit County before November so i can score a Colo Pass...
oh yeah, all of my non-skiiing friends have started the "So Spence, when does ski season start?" querying something fierce. even they know something is brewing (or that i'm just going stir crazy).
i think it's a sure sign (of what, i don't know) when all your friends start introducing you at parties and gatherings as "This is Spence. He loves to ski and owns like 20 pairs of skis."
