    It is what it is. We just need to close it out better than we started.

    Well not this little black duck, It's still duck season... I'm going to get all my gear out, take stock, and repair list, weigh my stuff and redo my Lighter Pack.

    THEN after I waxed my boards and packed my pack put my gear on, make a real nice coffee still on my couch and wait .... after all, you need to be a little optimistic that the grass is greener somewhere.

    There is still 2 months of skiing to be had. Live local and pick the eyes out of each storm event. Weather doesn't have a calender. This approach to getting the goods has been on the cards for quite a few years now. Geez even japow isnt as consistent as it was 20 years ago. Flexibility, life choices and sacrifices. How many have traveled to G land only to be skunked by a flat ocean.

    Cycling is keeping me sane during the ultra lockdown . Like a rat in a treadmill I go around and around my 5 km exercise yard each day. Eventually I will become too physically fatigued to give a rat's a*se and thus avert a mental breakdown .

    yep, we have a couple more resort weekends booked in and then I am thinking for the remained of September and even into October if there is enough cover I will do day trips out to main range.

    Drive down Saturday night, up early Sunday, then drive home Sunday night.

    I am sure split boarding is fun but it seems to be an activity in which it is unclear whether it is BC XC skiing or snowboarding.
    On land lockdown era surfing work outs are similar. I am doing some such exercises while I cannot access the sea for swimming and surfing.

    Yeah I think splitboarding is just a less efficient way of getting up the hills in order to have more fun going down them, depending on your preference of course.

    I’m glad to hear you are keeping active and busy down there :) I hope it’s not too demoralising

    It’s just training for the telemark goddess within.
