Mi wife rides so I don't have to plan around her and (unfortunately) I only have my daughter 50% of the time so that leaves plenty of free time.

Yesterday I was a fail though. I wanted to go out but it was already 6pm and everyone I called to ride with turned me down and my wife was sick. I could have ridden by myself but it was already late, blah blah blah.

I'm going tonight for sure. Just don't know where yet.

Hey Kevin, Cannonsburg posted this today:
Never Summer Industries is onsite the next four days demoing boards from noon to 4pm. If you haven't ridden a Never Summer yet, you need to give one of these American made rippers a try! They will also be holding a photo jam on their signature feature Friday and Sunday afternoon where you could land a full page ad in Snowboarder Magazine!

I'm going to hit up Pine Knob tonight, prolly get there around 6. I've never been but Dave says they have a beginner park and kickers. Sounds perfect for me.

expect crowds in the beginner park kids in the way, kids snaking, kids sitting in the landings of the top feature, etc.. bring shitty gloves since the two rope will eat them up. Or just take the chairlift instead.

Sounds like a blast. haha

The last time you were at Holly, did they have ride on stuff besides the box 3 cm off the ground? Kickers?

PK had the larger park area off to the right of Quicksilver open. It had 2-3 good sized jumps open. Didn't notice too bigg a park rat crowd, not like Ive seen b4.

They're back on reg hours now so only open till 10 tonite. Dont think youll have too much crowd to deal with. Hardly anyone there last nite n they were open later.

on second thought yeah tonight might not be too bad I don't think school ski clubs start until next week. Then it tends to be somewhat of a shitshow from 3pm until about 8 or 9 when the school buses leave.

S-o-o-o Bummmed!!! I Couldn't get out of work soon enough to hook up with Sabatoa out @ PK! Couldn't have made it out there before 8 and didn't think the gas & ticket cost was worth getting less than 2 hours riding!

Hate to say it, but I think I'm going to have to take another look at Mt. Brighton and see if I can stand it at all! I Haven't been back since my 1st lesson & second time out on a board back in Feb 2011. But it's 25-35 min. closer to Work/Home than PK and maybe now that I can probably ride pretty much everywhere they've got there,.. (...park not included!) Who know's,.. maybe it won't be totally sucky???

I need someplace I can hit after work, that still leaves me some time to ride and make it worth the trip!

(...shit, I'll bet it really is pretty sucky still!!)
