Except for maybe a tits deep POW day, looked to me like a perfect day in pardisimo! ;). ...not to come off like a petty little shit, but it's been 3 weeks since I last strapped in! I gotta stop reading about alla your "Good Days!" :D. (...green is not my color!) ;)




One question tho. It looks like you were hiking up a resort? They don't hassle you for that there? Around here you'd get arrested for trespassing.

nice...

I would love to ride near Logan Pass in the springtime...

Sometimes I wish I could get away and live my life like that instead of the rat race that I live in now.

mtn closed apr7, there is an uphill policy in effect for one month, then it is a freeforall, you can go and do whatever you want, it's USFS land. there are a lot of bears up there though

Logan Pass: opens usually in mid june, starts 3 weeks of mayhem on the top of Glacier. im gonna get up there at least a few times during that window, will document...

it comes down to how much you are willing to sacrifice to make it happen. if things are bad enough wherever you are sometimes you gotta (esp if you are young) say fuck it, drop everything, and start fresh...

Ah! Didn't realize the resort was USFS land. Cool that you can hike n ride it tho, (...shitty FS leash laws not withstanding.)

Bears eh? Being Montana, I imagine some if not all, Grizz? I could definitely see that being a problem. Especially in early spring.

Proly not a good idea to "Jib" one huh?! ;)

Man,.. If I were even just 10 years younger!!!

Did that at least twice between 23 and 36 yo. Including doing so after starting and then losing a business, divorce & bankruptcy. Neither time wound up being all that much better eventually. :dunno: Right now, I'm more worried about keeping my increasingly expensive and slowly dwindling health benefits at work.

-meh- maybe it's getting to be about that time to do it again anyways.
