Half hour drive? Haha! I have to go at least 100 miles to the nearest place that could possibly even sell snowboarding stuff. Just man up and drive there. You'll appreciate it later when your helmet fits perfectly.
didn't mean half hour as a long drive i just meant that it's a solid distance that in combination with a snowstorm is going to make me not want to make the trip. thanks for the help to those who actually gave me good info
