>>>Your point was well-taken about the bozos who collect lift tickets on their jackets, but I don't think that us epicski "day counters" should be thrown in that pot.<<<
Oh James, I never meant to judge day counters one way or other, including the folks with the long ticket bail, I just meant that we never counted our days.
If it weren't for Ann keeping somewhat of a log and putting pictures in an album, we'd never settle disputes between us as to where what happened and when. I'm forever insisting that we did this or that at one place and we have to go back to the log and I'm often surprised how ski experiences and places melt together.
Just the other day Ann showed me a sunset picture I took and I knew that I took it in Santa Fe until she took out the album and there was a dupe shot and it was taken from Swan Mountain Rd going from Breckenridge to Keystone.
And having all those shortcomings myself how could I possible criticise someone for their own pleasures.
Trailmaps are fun, especially since most of the time I don't pay attention to the names of the slopes I ski and when we talk about some, I need to look them up, I have about a hundred or so from areas we skied. ...and I should talk about ticket hoarders
