TheDoughAbidesFor real. Its rough out there! I've been doing a lot of fishing and i tuned the mtb up just in time for it to actually get cold haha. That being said, Ive noticed that I'm unusually irritable at the moment due to the lack of white stuff. How you guys doing?
search4freshiesThis shit totally blows dude! Im down in Durango, and I went to the skatepark yesterday. FUCKING SKATEBOARDING IN JANUARY!!!! We had that small storm roll through last week, which was enough to get my dick wet, but its been a shit show out there. Everyone is deprived so when the snow comes people are hurting themselves in the resorts, or even worse, dying in the backcountry. I met the guy who died in Silverton last weekend a few times around town. I feel really bad for his family and friends. Beyond that Ive skied that exact zone on days when the forecast was moderate (+2 avy danger) same as when he got caught in that slide.. To think now I couldve fucking died out there. Ontop of all of that shit my roomate is pushing to get out and earn our turns/ create content, while its clearly unsafe. I'm standing my ground staying home or in the resorts. Now my relationship with him is going downhill, and hes supposed to be my partner out there, and im having trouble trusting him. Im also dealing with a ton of other life shit right now like losing my job, serious injuries to family members, and financial burdens that are wayyyyy over my head. Kind of the "same old shit" but now i dont have skiing as a release. To make things worse i blew the shock on my mtb, so no im having to find other things to keep me busy, but nothing that kind of frees your mind like ripping some turns or sending some airs on the snow.
Im just trying to grind through all of this bullshit, and keep my head up looking towards spring. THe snowpack cant be deadly forever right?! All i know is with this whack winter the spring skiing better be all time!
