    Bugger, I've just realized I'm minion-free tomorrow. That means I'm on the bike tomorrow morning. That's going to be a long ride...

    On Mt P, yes.

    The longest run/most vertical at Perisher is over at Blue Cow and is still a grass ski run. That should get fixed this week.

    Shame Kletterer, would have been great to to catch up and have a climb as well.

    Pretty sure @DidSurfNowSki is going to be useless tomorrow having sat up for two nights watching the cruiser cam! He'll claim he is looking for snow updates but I'm pretty sure it's a deep down desire to ski Thredbo.

    I normally watch the Perisher Center webcam, but it looks like someone has 'borrowed' it, probably to watch over their 'herb' garden. As such, I'm reduced to watching the groomers go up and down Merrits. Do they ever tire of grooming that run ? Are the Thredbo clientele so scared of bumps ?

    FIFY

    Just short of six hours and that was the best you came up with? A piece on typical redneck behaviour and a cheap shot at groomers who take pride in their work. ;)

    Watching the groomers on Merrits reminds me of the frontside of Vail. Groomed to an inch of its life!

    It was a good session. Should be more Canberra forum members stepping up to the plate though.

    I did a beach run with beer chaser today.
    I do tell a fib. Was a beer chaser, followed by a couple of glasses of cab sav with dinner.
    Still muscles seem to be working, especially around the jaw. LOL

    Keep moving and enjoy happy people. P.S. I would pass on the cigar smoke and maybe go for some hashish in the chocolate cake.

    Cigar smoke, as in cigar box tannins often found in good bitey red wines. Not the lung cancer type

    Sorry not to have made it there yet, life has been fairly hectic this past month or so. Will be in Thredbo next week but will look to doing a session the following Thursday.

    Apparently some people getting ready for Japow will also be attending when it gets warmer.

    Last night there was a class of one, me! Duncan said, let's focus on your weaknesses.. A lovely night of finding out my limits by gradually increasing (or as needed decreasing) the activities until I broke. After being fully lactic from these drills, a nice little 10min of cardio, garnished with some wall sits.

    @zac150 has a lot to answer for :axe:

    Hey it's not my fault you and @Kletterer put out a hit on your fitness instructor on the Perisher page, when he went boarding! It was never going to end well!

    And I cant be held accountable for guiding him to the posts......

    This is what happens when you upset the instructor! For an engineer you still seem to struggle with the idea of 90 degrees

    I enjoyed the session, except for the last two minutes when my knee decided to give up. Good to see Kletterer again and meet zac150 and DSNS. Will be back again when I return from the rugby tournament in Canada.
