Good luck with the endeavor.

Geez....you've gotten us confused already.

Doesn't matter, you'll get equal dose of grief from both of us.

Of course they will. The business plan may change over time, but they will do fine.

Jim, was disappointed after moving to Sacramento, to walk into Sierra and find you were gone, but Tyler is doing a good job filling your absence. But if there's ever anything he can't quite help me with I'll be sure to stop by The Starthaus.

Sorry Jim,
I'll prepare myself for the grief.

Congratulations on your new venture! I appreciate all the help you have been on product for my family (I tried my Contact 4X4 yesterday) and look forward to working with you in the future. You are a terrific benifit to Epic and the ski industry. Best of luck, Charlie
PS Don't let all this new responsiblity keep you off the snow. That take ALL the fun out of it!

Charlie:

Thanks for the kind words. I'll ski more now that I used to although this first year may not reflect that b/c we have so much to do.

Planning on 30 but hopin' for 40. (It's my job after all).......

Good news. My wife and I have been a client of Jim Schaffner since even before the Starthaus. Last year on Christmas Eve we stopped by your Sacramento store and picked up a pair of Blackeyes for my wife and some plays skis for my teenage step-daughter. We'll stop in to say Hi. I'm probably do for a tongue shim or other adjustment this year anyway.

C'mon Jim. You know that you don't have to order shims. Just cut up some of your old stretch pants.

The kid in me can't help but think of this:
Quote:
Thing Two: Don't belittle me.
The Cat: Ah, yes of course. Thing 2 would like to clarify that just because he wears the number 2 does not imply in any way that he's inferior to Thing 1.
Thing Two: And all of the above.
The Cat: He says you may feel free to call him Thing A if you like. He will also accept Super Thing, Thing King, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate Thun-da or Ben.
Thing Two: Ben.
[Thing 1 jabbers incoherently]
The Cat: Thing 1 says he's Thing 1 for a reason and some people should just get used to it. It's a Thing thing, you wouldn't understand.
I can only imagine how much fun this endeavor is going to be for you. Just don't let the fish talk you out of the really fun stuff

Actually, I was thinkin' about cutting up my 2mm waders. Won't likely need 'em anymore.

Don't do that, Jim. We still need to point out the fishing gapers on the Truckee.

By the way, did you go on your annual Golden Trout trip this summer?

I did but the spawn was over in the high lakes and the fishing was slow even up at 11,000 feet. The river was low but still good fishing @ around 9,500. Good trip as always but the fishing was off from the spectacular results last year.

Timing......

Best of luck in your new endeavor Jim. I know it will be succesful.
Now I have another reason to get out to the Tahoe area.
