Anyone here travel alone?
 
I'm looking to feed my snowboard itch this season, but I don't think I will be able to get ppl to go with me each and every trip. These trips will be to Socal resorts for anywhere from 2-4 days long. I'm wondering what do you guys usually do when you're done boarding for the day, but don't have any buddies around? I don't wanna just be holed up in a hotel watching tv =(

I been rollin' solo for a while. Just skipped from AK to CO and picked up an Epic so i'll definitely be headin' to CA @ some point to make use of the Kirkwood, Northstar and Heavenly perks.

My advice is to take your skateboard. That way when you're not @ the mountain, you can still go ride!

I'm planning a couple trips alone this year - not for lack of trying to get friends to come along. But at this point in our careers/lives, it's such an ordeal to get schedules to line up. If I have an opening, I ask around, but go it alone if need be. Just don't want to do that should I go backcountry pow!

I'd schedule some coaching or something, set and accomplish some goals (soCal? may as well get sum freestyle right?).

I ride most of the time by myself, have a blast with friends but over the years realize that I have enough stoke for like 30000 people so its hard expect anyone to keep up.

I'm the blockhead who has to go paddle out for an hour or 2 every day all summer when there are no waves :dunno:

If you push yourself on the mountain you will crash after a meal and hotub/shower no need to worry about entertainment.

I travel and ride solo all the time, like I have said before if I waited for others I would never go anywhere.I am even doing 6 weeks in japan solo starting in january.

The trick is you have to be content with yourself, lots of people can only be happy if they are with other people which will stop them from doing hundreds of things in their lifetime, especially as they get older. If you are one of these people you will get homesick and probably end up crying for you mother in the middle of the night. The internet can keep you connected to others if you really cant stand it.

Travelling solo is also a great way to meet new people and try things you wouldnt normally, I highly recommend it and if you can handle it you open up your life to a whole new range of possibilities.

Agreed. Met some pretty cool people while on solo trips.

6 weeks in Japan? OMG. I'm sooo envious. How do you have that much time off??? I wish I could do that but my employer would kill me.

I ride alone most of the time.. I get tired of hearing excuses and if my buds happen to go up the same time ill let them know where I am if they want to meet up.

I don't like waiting on people anymore, because they stop you from growing.. I'm comfortable by myself and will just meet people on the mtn

OP shoot me a pm since your in SoCal. Ill be at the local mtns
