This place is Heaven if you can look away from your screen. That's even with the Orange Buffoon leader we just elected. I think its time to let the Right Wing drive the Bus. Lets let them run it into the ditch.  Maybe they will surprise us and not destroy everything. I see that 46% of Americans didn't even vote this cycle. Trump and Clinton only each got around 25%. All this wrangling was ignored by half the country. Perhaps we just need to let the Right fuck things up to get more people to vote.

I never thought about it, but you know David, you don't see white pick-ups around here do ya? I like white. I'm currently looking for a toyota sienna in white.

I saw on the news just now, a piece on killington and all the snow they've made so far, preparing for the women's world cup race coming up nov. 26 and 27. I'd like to go, but to actually watch the ladies race isn't going to happen. The good tickets sold out months ago. Watching on the tube will work.

Last year I gained a real appreciation for mm snow. I had a good time skiing at smuggs. They make the nicest snow. They have these new guns that can spray a light semi-fluffy flake, that can take a beating from the snowboarders. If we have a dry winter, I'll still have  a good one.

My wife drives it. It's just too new for what I'd do to it, so I'm going to take my time and snag a deal of the century.

Man there are a Ton of Sienna's for sale on Auto Trader. 100's of them all over the country.

What is DP doing in Az? I just saw him last week, he said he was having trouble making it across the house. You just never can tell with that boy.

That is funny I went and checked the GMP power outage page. There are already close to 600 outages.

Ahhh the country life.

Only an inch or two expect in the valley, 12+ in the mountain areas. Piece of cake for us city folks commuting tomorrow. It's going to be hell for outlanders coming in to work tomorrow. I've been noticing a lot of summer tread still on cars. I'm leaving for work super early tomorrow...... No sliders going to stall my day.

There certainly are a number of Dumb asses. Its why they use millions of tons of Salt every year. Gotta make sure they can get to work without bumping in to each other.


Joanne got hit last week by an EMT in a Prius. She was sitting at a light and he drove into her rear bumper and cracked the plastic. Slow speed hit at the light. He was probably on his phone. Now we have to go to the body shop and get her car fixed. Its a no salt car so now we will have to wait till the roads are clear

Get out there boys...excellent conditions! I was blasting through waist deep drifts last night ( not too difficult when you're only 5' 4"). But still it was fun.

We are going Friday somewhere and I am up for the weekend too. It looks like a little more snow each day up high. I think I will ski here in the AM just to check it out. The way the snow fell on warm ground turned the bottom into pretty stiff cover. IT looks like it should ski well.

My hot tub is running so it will not freeze. The heater element appears to have opened and its not heating anymore.  The  new heater is suppose to get here Friday afternoon. Got 8 years from that heater.

Hey Shane, you'll have to get a snorkel for the really big storms..... just say'n.

I'm still in the hiking frame of mind, but will have to adjust and take the light gear out this weekend. I'm going to find some peace and quiet in the woods, no ski areas for me just yet. Tom, if you're game for some light gear action let me know. Jonny boy got a pass to BV this year? I dunno, I wouldn't count on that place for my skiing pleasure(they're not even opening this weekend).

Smuggs/SB/BV one day at a time is the way to go. $35(fri)=smuggs $50(liftopia)=SB $39(ebay)=BV

That's just a little over $450 for a dozen ski days. Not a bad deal. I say why bother with a pass, unless you're going to be skiing lift service all winter, and can go a lot. Back Country is free, so what a fkn deal it is skiing in Vt.

I spent like 900 bucks at BV last season and got 10 runs with my wife lift service at 90 dollars a run. Never doing that again. They failed miserably on the snow making front while every area in the area made tons of snow.  The thing is if its a good year with a good snow pack why the hell would you want to go on the weekend to an area that will be skied off in a few hours. We have so much BC for free. I have done my time at the Resorts and will still go once in a while. The climb up is just as fun as the ski down in my book. Looking forward to many days on flat snow in the Vermont woods.

It's snowing again in Rutland, always a good sign. The snow is great but I bet the racers at Killington are wishing it would stop so they can see the course. Plus they want to ski hard pack, not powder.

Joe, I might be interested in touring this weekend but we'll be doing a bunch of driving (see you at Sue's)so I'm not sure I want to drive north again so soon. The season is young so "I'll be back".


Lift-service skiing in Vermont can be pretty reasonable if you pay attention to deals.

We did Bolton on Saturday. Up to Bryant and across to the top of Wilderness. Then down the Turnpike. Shane Joanne and Janice in attendance.

I went up MRG this morning. We climbed right up Canyon and then up to the top of the Single. We came down part of Chute to part of Fall line to Donkey and then skied out over through Bird land. The bottom was thin and frozen. The middle was thick and frozen, the top was Ok. A three hour tour with Julie and Stan.

We skinned up the normal route to the Nest. Did Fall Line and found it great. Skinnned back up from mid and did it again. Then Exited on Canyon. The lower part was thin but I got through without hitting anything. 11:00 to 2:30 not bad. The Starks Nest was busy like a bus station. The deck was full of transitioning skiers with 5 or 6 dogs in the mix. Inside was like a coffee house in Amsterdam. Hot tea, hoppy beer and weed being consumed and all the tables and chairs full. The State police dont have a SUI unit yet.

Good you're getting out. I'm not into skinning up ski trails, too many folks milling about and too much heavy metal for my taste. I like the woods and the peace it gives. I'll be heading up to Mt Dewey and beyond sometime this week. I want to check out the new glades in Brandon sometime this winter. Do it on a weekday.

Joe, let me know when you might be heading up to Mt. Dewey. We have something planned for Saturday 10th but otherwise I could drive up for a quick ski tour.

Shane and I were just talking about the glades on Dewey. We found them a couple years ago. We did three laps they were so nice. I am up for a tour. I think the crack pot woods across from me will be in shape too. Another dump on top of what we have now will remove any excuses for not going up an taking a look. 

Skinning at places like Mad River when they are closed is not a bad day. Many like minded people milling around. Its pretty fun. I think this Saturday the Grift is playing in the Base box.
