no worries about the old man status 6 days of riding is a lot for ANYONE. I strung together 7 days once, and I've done 5 days back-to-back a few times definitely takes a toll on your body. Good thing is though, especially when you're learning, getting those back-to-back days in should help you develop better muscle memory as opposed to someone who only goes out to ride 3-4 times a winter

Does anybody happen to know the threading for the screws that hold bindings on?

you stripped them and need to re-thread?

Pretty much every board uses M6 hardware

I think they're stripped...2 of the 3 screws on my back binding popped out, and I haven't had a chance to do any damage assessment on my own yet, so I don't know 100% if they're stripped. But I did buy new screws...I even bought the right size from the hardware store

Yup, I have managed to string a couple of sessions of back to back, all day riding trips together since I took my lesson late last season. I expect it might just be why I have progressed as quickly as I have. I have been more than a bit amazed at my progress myself especially when I compare my experience with some of the others I read here. (Not to discount or underestimate I may have a little "Natural" ability or Aptitude for it either!!)

I wasn't joking when I wrote in an earlier post back in Dec., that I was VERY surprised on my first time out this season to find that I was at least as good as I was @ end of last, If Not, maybe a bit better!! Didn't seem to "Lose" anything over the summer. I was REALLY Stoked about that!

I am most definitely,.. Totally, completely, happily, OBSESSED with this sport!!!! Wish I'd have discovered it 25-30 years ago!! I'd b working @ a "Starbucks" or something on some mountain just so I could ride every day!!!! !!!

Well, gonna get some quick chow and get out for first chair!

More later.

Are you talking about the blue threading that comes on snowboard binding screws? That is blue Locktite. Make sure you avoid the red one. Apply just a dab of it and screw your bindings in. Alternatively, I heard nail polish works pretty well too, though not as sticky.

I got some blue Locktite today...Had a chance to check out the mounting holes on my board, and I pulled some metal shards out of 2 of the holes! Yikes!

I bought some longer M6 screws (maybe an 1/8th inch longer than stock) so we'll see if that helps anything.

Rant time...Riding snowbird at pine knob. 3rd of four jumps a 10~ year old skier decides the landing in a good place to stop. I don't see him until im midair and I bail out..and land on my head. Wake up at Beaumont everything's okay but people really need to fuck away from the jumps or jibs this happens way too much.
E: Next person I see at the bottom of the jump sitting there is getting run into..

damn dude sorry to hear that but glad you are OK. it's unfortunate those situations suck because technically you are at fault (downhill skier/rider always has the right of way) even though he also is in violation of the responsibility code (never stop where you can't be seen from above).
