Are ya going back there next weekend for September turns?  Or do you have something a bit further out in mind for that?  Wink

"The Casshole didn't bring skis?"  Weak!  Huh   Huh   Huh

600:1  Hike elev. to ski elev. ratio!? Yeah, a bit of a stretch for my definition of sanity, but well suited for the Kamster  Wink  

Skip didn't even go on the trip? Weak!  Grin

Casshole:  insane?  i don't know what you're talking about.  i think this looks pretty normal...

Ron J: september is a special month: Skip and I will celebrate our TAY anniversary.  knowing Skip, he'll want something more burly than Ruby -- 50 vf. patch is a bit much. recall Skip's big smile last september after skiing this gem; at most it was 10 vf.!

Kam-
You crack me up!!
Although after a little simple math, I probably got around 1400 vertical on my ladder last weekend working on my house. Should have slung my skis so I could post a report Wink. I would have rather earned my vertical the way you did than by tediously sanding a 3 story log home.
Good work and thanks for the laughs!!
