I don't know who would want to buy them and sooner or later the local scout troop will come by looking for a donation to help them build a new sled for the Klondike Derby. I'm not crazy about that idea or letting someone turn them into a fence or chair.

Sooner or later I'll have to find a good home for the excess or the wife will toss them out. The scary part about that is she won't know which ones are the excess and which ones are the usable ones.
If your "retro sticks" are straight skis, it's pretty hard to give them away.

Apart from nostalgia, or "retro days", there's not much demand.

It's amazing that some folks still actually ski them. Gotta admire their "keepin' it real" attitude.

The first time a woman I'm dating buys a designer handbag is the last time I'm dating her.

Next thing you know she'll want to drag you off to live in Miami.

Why? Some women are capable of being multidimensional, believe it or not.

My wife loves Coach handbags and has a 'quiver' of them. She also happens to love the mountains.

I am constitutionally unable to let go of some stuff I'd only ski on a dare. For one run. Assuming the bindings aren't frozen. We're talking older than a significant number of Epic members. And don't get me started about the handy category of rock skis. I need professional help.

She loves the mountains so much she lives in PA?

Everyone has different tastes. Some women love handbags. Some women eschew handbags, heels and hairdos in favor of backpacks, AT boots and knit hats. That's the kind of woman I'm drawn to.

Don't disparage my choices, and I won't disparage yours.

Fair enough. My point was though that some women can be BOTH of those 'types'.

Yea we live near the "old mountains" about 2 miles from the AT, 15 minutes from our little local ski hill and 5 minutes from a mile wide river. It's not ideal but not near as bad as it sounds.

Someday we will be in those shiny new big mountains but we can't bring ourselves to pull our son away from the grandparents yet.

You need to move to Italy.
