||Buy this: Peet boot dryer. You can also get the four-post one and do your gloves at the same time, but it's got too big a footprint for my little casa.

||RC is a nice jack-of-all-trades (but master of none) board. If you split your time between park and all-mountain riding, and like the feel of reverse camber, it should be a good fit.

||If you hoard your points and don't post, you can time when you're going to get the goggles. If you wait until next year's come out, you could pick up the 2012 ones. That's assuming, however, that the reward program doesn't change in the interim, so you could get burned. I timed my 3,000th point to wait until the 2012 Rome 390 Bosses were in stock, and just a few days prior they changed the policy to preclude getting current year gear.

||Burton Goretex Mitts. Never get cold again.

|| This is not the point of the reward program..... [/QUOTE] Well yeah. Like I said, I wanted to use the coupon on a particular pair of bindings that I intended to use this season. I wanted a pair of 390 Bosses, but all of a sudden my order gets cancelled and surprise, I can only use the coupon on a small subset of bindings, none of which I have any interest in using. So what the hell am I supposed to do with them; hang them up for Christmas decorations? But again, gift horse in the mouth.

|| I just got burned by this too. It's a little baitey-switchey, seeing as how they suddenly and quietly changed the terms of the coupons. For months, I'd been planning on picking up some Rome 390 Bosses with this coupon, only to have my order abruptly cancelled. It kind of sucks, but gift horse in the mouth and all that. So instead, I ended up having to order the 390's from elsewhere, and buying a pair of 2011 Burton Missions with my coupon so I can eBay them for cash. It seems like the coupon should be treated like a gift certificate and not a discount code, which I imagine would exempt it from the vendor agreement. But I also suspect that not giving away the more expensive 2012 gear to people for posting on a forum isn't an entirely undesirable consequence.

||squat bench deadlift rows and do your cardio.

|| You and me both, brother. That's the same set I'm checking for every day.

||Bumpage. I'm looking to pick up some new Rome bindings, and I see that The House has the 2012s already. Any idea when the inventory over here is going to get freshened up with the 2012 gear?

||Dittos on the Mutiny. Very comfortable, you can use audio earpads, and relatively low profile. I can't figure out the vents for the life of me though. I don't notice any difference between the two positions.

||Very nice! Although the timeline from R&D to licensing to production can be a long and arduous one. Here's hoping they get this stuff in the stores sooner rather than later; Mt. Hood is nasty when it comes to fogging even when you follow all the recommended steps.

||Not gonna happen pal. They've got boards from the Clinton presidency sitting here at 40%.

||1 - I can't remember ever hitting my quads. Maybe they'll touch the ground if you do a nice scorpion, but they won't be the first point of impact. 2 - Depends on the ass. Your tailbone is a bit higher up than your cheeks, so depending on how you fall, there's lots of different thing you can hit. I've always heard that if you're going to fall, pick a cheek. It might hurt, but not as much as hitting a bullseye.

||Bright side: you have (A) a job that lets you (B) own a house. Right there you're well ahead of a lot of folks. In any case it sounds like your boss was overruled, which is a crap situation, but different from your boss lying to you.

||You absolutely shouldn't be at work. Are you in a mom-n-pop or a big box restaurant? For some reason this makes me think of Red Robin.
