Okay-I need to block out some time from work just to watch these drills on video...My productivity has definitely decreased since this ski obsession.

Thanks guys!

Oh BTW - here's something to think about.. I wonder what it would be like to slalom behind a direct drive vs. your Vdrive... so many things to think about - so little time...

Bad days can't be counted... as in any good addiction there will be times you want to purge...lol - but only to return to it... you have way too many enablers in your life... including me...

Had one of those days today. My first time in the course was last week, I made 2 at 30@15 in 6" chop with 10mph winds behind a '92 Ski Brendella. Today behind my beloved 195 in glass conditions I fell 4 times and couldn't get around 2 ball to save my life.

The pros on YouTube make it look so easy

For sure... Phone lights up like a pinball machine on a daily basis... "skiing today...?" "what is so and so's phone # or email addy...?" "Are you skiing this weekend?" "Can you fit me in this week...?" Being president has it's perks, i will miss it when I retire in December. I'll still hold an office, not sure which one...

Yes, they do make it look easy... I've been told *I* make it look easy... I guess it depends on the level you're at
