I want that NS Watts helmet. Too bad it's only a small.

It was pure, shit luck.

It's smart policy by dogfunk, really though. I will steer people towards them whenever I can and never have anything but good stuff to say about them. Not to mention they've earned my business going forward. Probably worth the refunded money on their end to do business like this.

Welp, I still feel good about what I said. I said it would be a gamble but wouldn't you know that your number came up.

You basically won the lotto without having to buy the ticket...or something like that.

Oh yea I totally agree with you, especially after riding this board. I wouldn't be upset if I had been stuck paying the full price. This is just what I imagine a bonus check at work would feel like, of which I've never had nor probably will ever have. lol

while we're sharing vids here's my nephew on Sunday at Mt. Holly. This was on Thunderbolt, which I believe is the steepest run there. He's 10, and has probably been snowboarding about 10 or 12 times, total.

lil ripper is doing good!

He's a lucky kid to have you showing him the ropes. I wish I had someone to take me out when I was that age.

Damn, I should be taking MY nephew out.

yeah he's definitely doing good. I don't even have to wait for him at the chairlift anymore, granted I take a few seconds maybe to line up a drop in the park but by the time I get down there he's usually waiting for me

Hey Guy's,

Didn't realize that my "Creep essence" had been all that much missed until Leo & Sabatoa sent me some texts! Here's what's been going on since this last weekend,..

Thought I was coming down with a cold or flu on Sat., Went out to PK for evening sesh anyway!
Big Mistake!!
Turns out I've got/gave myself? pneumonia! Been on my ass since Sun. afternoon. Even tho I was feeling really crappy sun. morning,.. I was seriously considering hitting PK for first chair & trying to hook up with Leo to ride too!! ...decided there was no need to spread my germs to his family!!! Good thing I didn't! Leo Probably would have killed me, if riding in the cold on sun. didn't!!

Anyway, saw the doc. yesterday, got put on some heavy antibiotics and they seem to be kicking in a bit this morning! Today I'm just feeling sick & really wiped out instead of "On Death's Doorstep!!" So hopefully I'm on the mend & won't have to miss another weekend of riding! (I really wanted to hit the 30 day mark this last weekend!) Oh well!

Thanks for the text's and well wishes Guy's!!
