3/25/2009 8:02:54 AM I just wanted to say thanks to some people I met on this trip, feel free to hijack the thread and add your own. Mike - What can I say, you went above & beyond for this.  To be honest, when I booked my flight I hadn't read the first page of the thread in awhile and didn't know that rooms would be taken care of, or the demo's were going to be there.  So when I found that out it just made it all the better.  One of the best weekends ever, honestly.  If you ever need anything IT wise, site help, or if you are ever in this area of the country.  Don't hesitate to ask. Jenn & Brody - I know I thanked you a lot but still, you guys are rad.  Thanks for letting me crash on your comfy couch and for driving me around for 5 days.  It goes without saying that when you guys make it out to jersey we're going to have to throw down, and if i can return the lodging/driving favor consider it done.  Jenn - thanks also for driving like an aggressive jerk just like I do, if you drove as sketchy as my girlfriend does we never would have gotten anywhere   Brodster - good luck in school man, I was reading a bit of what you had going on in the car on the way to tahoe and I was like 'wtf' - i couldn't do that stuff.  Get out to the east ASAP. Airic - Thanks for the riding tips, and for the sweet geek tour yesterday - you definitely have your head in the right place for where the site needs to go, and if I can ever be of any service let me know. Bruizza - Thanks for being the catalyst for this trip.  In case anyone was wondering, bruizza in person is probably exactly what you think he's like (ghey)   Even though you were 6 hours late to your own event, and it took you an hour to drink the beer i bought you, and you couldnt sack-up and finish all that sushi - i'm still gonna look you up when I finally get out to denver to meet my friend who lives there.  Hopefully I'll be better by then and i'll actually be able to keep up.  As long as there are no gulley's Shaka - Dude. Teach me that credit card trick (seriously).  Also, im in the housing market so if you have any hookups in the philadelphia area for foreclosures, get at me on facebook.  It was good to put a face to the name, and again, hopefully @ buizzapalooza '10 i'll be able to hang with you guys more Jeffany - Riding with you guys was awesome.  I honestly thought i'd be alone for most of the weekend but i'm glad that i'm better than I thought i was, or that i thought you guys were better than you are but seriously - awesome times.  Cant wait for next year. Stass - The british are coming!  Good riding with you, thanks for the tips, and next time i'm in manchester visiting my sister maybe i'll jump on the train and grab a couple drinks with you in good ole' brighton.  That is your oregon, right? GUTH - You're the man.  And apparently still a card-carrying one at that.  I'm sorry your dogs like me more than you, and that you drive a malibu, and that your girlfriend is possibly cooler than you, but thanks for being so chill this weekend.  Look forward to boozing more next year. GSRRR - Dude, seriously. You are one of the funniest drunks ever.  For anyone who is curious, Gsrrr barely says a word most of the times, but as soon as his lips touch liquor you can't shut him up.  He also spits and touches his chest a lot when hes drunk.  He also snores more than I knew any asian could.  Can't wait to head out to LA in May so we can go cougar hunting buddy. SacBrian - Thanks for the southwest reassurance and for making me feel semi competant while we were night riding and getting lapped by mike/guth/jenn/bruizza/etc   I'm definitely going to catch a show next time i'm out there, and hopefully you get big enough to come out east to perform.  If you ever need any help let me know, I have a few contacts in the stand-up/improv scene out here. ZagFan - You are the epitome of what I thought west coast people were like. "For Sure" thanks for riding on sunday and complimenting my rad faceplants.  I'm glad I could be there for your first booze, your first sushi, and your new knowledge of what teabagging is (what is wrong with the youth of today?) I can say with relative certainty that I will never visit spokane washington, but we'll ride next year at palooza '10 dude, and im gonna hit a box or two, I promise Courtnayyydear - Thanks for letting me corrupt you with alcohol (make your own joke here) and thanks for not being a brat and leaving on saturday.  Im jealous that you are 18 and can pickup and move to tahoe on a whim.  Next year try not to whine so much   - you seem like a chill chick. All in all just an absolutely sick weekend.  Worth every penny.  Everyone I met was really down to earth and fun to be around, and it really speaks to the community as a whole.  If I forgot you I apologize.  It was great to meet and drink with everyone and ride with some of you, next year I plan to be significantly better.  Less supermans, more gulleys. Can't wait for 2010, it's going to be out of control.
3/23/2009 8:11:32 PM I'm really sore after this weekend @ sugar bowl, and I've been having some back pains since I woke up this morning.   Especially when I sit down or stand up.  Do you have any suggestions, or know what it could be? Thanks buddy
3/23/2009 5:42:15 AM Looking for a pair of 09 EST bindings in medium.  Either Cartels/Triads/CO2's - dont care which really. Preferably in white, but I'm open to any color depending on the price. Send a PM or respond here and i'll message you. Thanks!
3/17/2009 11:50:17 AM Picked these up off ebay, and they are a half size too small. Luckily i found some at a local shop so im going to pick them up tomorrow. I'd like to get rid of these though. Not trying to make a profit, I will sell them at what i paid for them on ebay + shipping. $205 shipped for these (paypal fee).  they were used 1 time by the original owner but are in near-flawless condition.  extremely minor scuff on the toe of 1 boot, everything else is perfect.  Comes with everything even original packaging.  Send me a PM Link to the auction i got them from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=170308150050
3/12/2009 9:45:27 PM Sweet! Camelback will be making snow tonight and tomorrow night since its going to be well below freezing. I'm going to head up on sunday for the day.   Again on monday possibly.
3/12/2009 3:04:29 PM Why not.
3/12/2009 6:11:59 AM Hi, gimmie your pants. Should fit 36 waist (Large in most brands) Preferably not too baggy. Thanks

3/10/2009 8:10:42 AM So, My girlfriend got into her top grad school choice, and begins in september.  My ideal goal here is to retire as soon as she gets her doctorate in neuropsychology (approx 5-6 years) I'd like to retire, hold a part time job (~20 hours a week) for pocket cash, and essentially do the following things with my life (in no particular order) - Keep the house clean - Cook - Jiu-Jitsu - Yoga - Snowboarding - Sex Just wondering if anyone has any tips on doing this.  I told her that I'd support her through grad school, and then she can support me after I retire. (approximate age: 32) Any tips?
3/6/2009 6:47:50 AM I'll be up there today with a buddy and girlfriend.  Should be there from 5-10 I'm planning on going sunday as well, as long as its not raining.
3/5/2009 8:40:46 AM Looking to buy a pair of the black/red ions. Im not ENTIRELY sure what size i need at the moment.  Most reviews say to size up so That would mean i'd need a 10.5 or 11 but if you have a 10 I might be interested in those too. Lemme know, i have stuff to trade as well if you're interested. (boots/bindings/board)
3/4/2009 9:16:51 AM Just wondering what age everyone started. I'm 27 and started this season, and I'm regretting never doing it before.  Since I was 21, every winter I've tried to get up to the poconos to give it a try and I just never got around to it between being busy or not being able to find some friends to go.  Finally this year we got a house in the poconos on MLK weekend and 3 of us got hooked. Just wish i had started younger.  Better late than never I suppose!
3/3/2009 4:14:19 PM Congrats sierra. Thanks for the great community and cheap gear.
2/28/2009 1:29:49 PM So, a few weeks ago i was riding the flows at +15/-15 and I was having a lot of trouble, my stance was too narrow and I was having trouble getting control of my back leg when putting weight on it.  I didn't measure the width though: Today, I took out my forces for the first time, and for the first 2 hours my set up +15/-6 but again I wasn't sure what my width was: After the first two hours I decided to widen the stance and then measure, this is the same angles +15/-6 and the width here is 21' I saw a HUGE improvement on this trip with my angles at +15/-6 over +15/-15 and I think another part of the difference was the forces over the flows (FORCES ARE AMAZING) I have a ton more control and i think i improved leaps and bounds on this trip. My question is basically, if i want to widen my stance further (i'd like to give it a shot) should I move both bindings over to the next set of holes, or should i just loosen the screws and slide the bidnings and re-tighten. Force owners: Are the toe-holder straps too high?  They felt fine when riding, but I have nothing to compare them to.  They go over the toes I thought. Also does anyone else think they look off-centered? It might be my imagination.  Any other suggestions are welcome as well.  Thanks!
