Baker, Hood, Snoqualmie, Bachelor, Tahoe, SLC, Colorado, Montana, etc. Then add in all the backcountry areas, my head is going to explode. Plus, I also work freelance / contractor work and never know when/if I'm working very far in advance.

Mixie and I carpooled, rode, etc. to Mammoth and Bear/SS a few times last season. I'm sure she'd agree the more the merrier, if people want to share rides, split gas / accommodations for local so cal day trips or overnighters to Mammoth or Tahoe. Since there seems to be a few socal people on here, would make sense.
Can add me in for local hit ups around so cal. I'm gonna be spending as mich time as possible at bear this winter since I got my anytime pass

even more so since I got the new car!!!! tho I have a feeling Im not going to have any time what so ever until....I don't even know when. The mammoth forums are also good for finding ride shares but it's mostly old crusty skiier dudes over there. and most of them live in the south bay. Which for me, is not an easy carpool, as I live in Pasadena.

Also, Im not a huge fan of big bear to be honest, it's far enough and expensive enough where I'd just rather go to mammoth. If I only have time for local Id rather hit up high as it's an hour drive versus three. BB/SS isn't THAT much better than high to justify the extra drive and ticket price. I have a pass for mammoth and High always have ticket deals. So BB/SS are out for me unless I have a REALLY good reason to go like a cheap ticket and someone else driving. I HATE that dive. HATE HATE HATE. Tho now that I have awd it could be better.


I found out yesterday my gig got picked up for a full season. which Im kinda but over.

revolution COULD end up being good, Last Resort is dope so far... the only problem is all the good writers are at HBO, Showtime, AMC, etc - so it won't be too long before both of them devolve into timetravelling thru wormholes and whatnot

I started Revolution with a lot of hope that it would be awesome, the first few episodes the Charlie character was ruining it for me. Nothing against the actress but I hated the way they were fleshing her out.

The last episode changed it for me though, it was pretty damn awesome. Very reminiscent of LOST (good or bad depending on who you are I guess)

Yeah. Revolution did an early-LOST twisty flashback. Back from when it was better.

This thread has gone from a west coast meet feeler, to defining what the difference between the West Coast, The West, and the Mid-West are... To pictures of my girlfriend... To a conversation around mixies choice of work and everyone's TV preference.

Seems like a perfectly good thread to me.

the title of this thread was "who is interested in a west coast meet" people posted and some were interested.

while we still never decided what exactly "west coast" really means, we can ALL agree it's better then the "east coast"


so. organize one. Start a new thread "details for west coast meet HERE" it seems no one wants to step up and lead the thing. So if you want one, looks like you're gonna have to plan it. However, It looks like you don't have many takers, sorry. Im just curious, but is there anyone that can plan a vacation 4-6 months in advance? I sure as hell can't. Toss the weather factor in and I can see why there's a lack of commitment.

Perhaps those east coasters can get together because conditions generally suck there regardless of time or place. So they just do park laps and groomers and drink? out west we have sooo many awesome options to go to and a lot of people are burnt from last years crap season. I sure as hell don't want to spent the $ on a plane ticket and lift ticket unless Im getting powder days. Id rather use the cash for bc gear/Avy 1 to be honest. And due to my employment situation that's not even possible.

But If Im riding crap man made snow, park laps and groomers well...I can do that an hour from my house.


oh speaking of bc gear and avy 1 classes, I know zombaco was talking about taking one up in the Sierras in Feb. I think it was Feb. I hopefully will be in for that too, and we could get a group for that perhaps? I know Mammoth Mountaineering rents splits and gear and theres a few guide companies that run the classes around Mammoth/June. One used to do lift assisted touring at June and class included one ride up the lift....hm...probably not doing that this year
