...I was planning on calling in sick this friday and heading to Carnival @ Boyne, but it looks like they're going to get rain up there. I could deal with 50-60 degree temps & corned up snow,.. but boarding in the rain sounds like it "Sucks"!!

We'll see I guess. This "Obsession" may just overpower my common sense!

Yeah, I'm pretty happy about that! I'm doing a LOT of my runs riding switch the whole time. Leo's advice to widen my stance seems to have helped. Opened it up from 19-1/2 inches,.. (I could have sworn I was riding a little wider than that) to about 22 inches now. Feels better all the way around.

Now if I can just get the chance before this season is over to see if that helps with my stability and sticking my landings when popping off of some small bumps & such?
