I get the same impression of Modern at the RO store; like they are predominately a skateboard store that sells snowboards in the off-season. Maybe it is just because I'm old, I (generally) know what I'm talking about and I can articulate what I want. You'd think they'd prefer to deal with customers like that, rather than some brat with mommy's credit card.

FYI all I am already putting together a calendar so I want to schedule some dates and lock them down that way I can tell the wifey, "Sorry, I've had this planned since September..."

What are your thoughts about doing a trip to Crystal on 12/17 (Saturday)? We could go up early in the morning on Saturday, spend the night in Cadillac, eat some burgers at Maggie's tavern afterwards...

Hell yeah, looking forward to it bro. It's the only way I'll get better.

My girl posted on that NS giveaway thread. She killed me man.

So what's the deal with your wifey? Did I read right somewhere, that she's the one that got you boarding?

You sound just like me when I was griping about it when I decided that I wasn't going to buy from them (exception for the $38 K2 Bliss bindings for the lady, zing!)


I'm down for the 12/17 for sure, no daughter that weekend. I'll put it in my phone to make sure I don't plan over it.

Yea, she did haha. However, I've far surpassed her passion for the sport. She's a very busy person because she's still in school along with a full time career and now a baby. Still loves to shred when we take vacations though and the occasional pine knob/holly family outing.

@David: I can't plan that far ahead. My schedule is very uncertain. But that date being a Saturday helps a ton. I'm not sure when we are going to do our annual family snow vacay this year. I know we went to Tahoe around that date last year though.

mine? Nope. I've been boarding since ~1995. I got her in to it a few seasons ago.

I meant Leo. I must've seen him mention it on his FB when I was drooling over his shred pics.

12/17 works for me; the baby will be over a month old by then so the wife should allow me to leave the house for an evening since I will probably be on lock down up until that point.

OOOh... you're going to be a parent. Have fun bro. It is definitely one heckuva ride. Mine is starting to walk on his own now. So fun to watch.
