this is the first year in my 12 years of snowboarding that i am not prepared for winter
Although I definately got the itch for snow, Ill agree with you a little bit. Its not so much that I'm not ready for winter to begin. Its more that I'm not ready for summer to end. The low snowpack from last winter and the consistent, dry weather this summer made for a great summer of hiking and camping. The amount of ground I cover by foot this year is rediculous.
