Happy Birthday Pete.  Be it skiing or golf today, enjoy it.  A good beer works very well after either one.

What kink of driver ended up jumping into your bag?  What courses do you normally play over there?

Happy birthday Pete. I'll give you a chance to whip me on the golf course this summer. Enjoy all your days to the fullest but this one just a bit more. I enjoy your company ,amongst so many others that feel the same.

Thanks All.   It was an interesting day.  Variable snow conditions, quit about 1100 and took off for Couer d Alene, tried aboout 6 drivers and liked the Cobra S2, 10.5 the best, hit it pretty good.  Played 9 holes at CDA public in nice weather.  Good time skiing and good time on course.   Spent evening making some special Bass jigs.  I am taking this retirement thing very seriously.

Stranger.  Play here in St. Maries most of the time - season pass $330.00 and try to play the Links, Avondale, shoshone, St. Regis (when I fish the Clark Fork), Pratie Falls and Circling Raven at least once a summer.

Now that is is dawning on me how darn old I am getting.  Figured I should probably keep working on my Bucket List and maybe even add a challenge or two.   So when I am 70 I have decided that I will hike/bootpack up this mountain and ski down.  Seems like a reasonable 70th year endeavor.

The hill is Wardner Peak at Silver Mt., probably a 30-40 minute hike for me and will try - or I will pick a powder day to ski down. Teledance does this all the time but I have only packed up to the cornices on the L of the picture.

The hill:

You can see the hike better in this picture, up the ridge on the L to the towers.  Hiked and skied off the little cornice a ways up the ridge but haven't gone to the top.  Thought this would make a good 70 yr endeavor.

Pete, Wardner shouldn't too much of a hike for a young guy like you from the woods down around St, Maries. 

That is a good goal for  a milestone year.  Good choice.    Just let one of the kids break trail.

Stranger, where do you ski?  Maybe we can swap mountains next year.

Pete, I hang pretty much at Crystal Mt.WA these days.  For about 6 years had the weekday pass at Silver when we lived in Cd'A.  Lived Spokane/Cd'A for 20 years, we raised our family over there. 

Crystal is closed for the season, there is a new gondi to build there this summer.  So will work on getting the stars to align next season either east or west of the pass. 

Here is a thought.  Reading the tread from the Vail gathering made me drool.  Creating some regional gatherings like that could be an easy way to create more gatherings, it wouldn't have to be last days.  Something to think about on the trout stream this summer. 

Here is some history for you on the Cd'A public golf course.  All those little dips on the fairways, here is where they came from.  Played with an old logger who helped build the course after WWII.  They buried the stumps, and that is where they were and rotted out over the years.

Sounds like a great idea.  Never been to Crystal so would like to make it over next year.  Planning on also doing some Cat skiing with Big Red Cats in Rossland and skiing Red and whitewater.  Want to also make a trip to Kicking Horse and Revelstoke.  If we get some early  powder want to demo some Rossi S7's and do more next year.  This year 09-10 wasn't out best powder year over here.

Interesting history on CDA public.  Smallmouth fishing is about to take off over here so been busy making some special jigs I use locally.  Waters still pretty low and should warm up pretty fast this year.  I am working very hard on this retirement thing.
