Tatanka Head I thought the season was over. 30cm expected tomorrow. Just got the go ahead for Saturday from my wifey, aka the boss, aka my younger old lady... So I'm pretty stoked. I just about packed the season in. I'm hoping the rest of Switzerland packed it in.

My neighbor recently took the ski-rack off his wife's wagon and and is already parking his mid-life crisis Ferrari outside of his garage. This indicates a change in seasons.

snowangel99 DH = Dear Husband

I have always used DH. Its just a habit. I use DD for dear daughter and DS for dear son. Its just what I do. It means nothing other than I am lazy and its shorthand.

I noticed Neni uses SO (this one is often interpreted as unmarried but attached or gay partner) and lots of guys on here say wifey or boss or the wife. lol. whatever works for ya!

And now that I know it's sarcastic and cheeky I like it even more.

I've seen you use that abbreviation a number of times. I finally googled it.

Hof (2006) writes that DH is not merely shorthand meant to save time, but a "cheeky reference". Drentea & Moren-Cross (2005) write that using DH and DD help stressed-out women maintain their "good mother" social role by softening complaints about their families. The usage of "dear" can also be sarcastic. Owens (2007) writes that DH "suggests a certain distancing".

Honestly, I haven't checked on the PC yet. I'm such an smartpone person... very rarely on the PC and the phone app doesn't have that info. I knew the slope from the guide, I regularly try to gauge pitches to back up or adjust the guess to get a better feel.

Haha, the watch thingy is awesome, tho atm it keeps me more occupied with eating. Aaaw dang, I'm still x cal below the daily target, aiii, go to fridge and stuff something more . Really love it. Very interesting to monitor HR intensity of the different sports I do (dressage vs resort snowboarding vs XC horseriding vs touring vs rowing).

neni Great touring Sunday. The Föhn was blowing hard at the Gotthard range and ripped some nice sunny patches into the otherwise grey cloud cover.
Taking the glacier experess till Oberalppass made for a only 1000m ascent but +2000m descent; at the top with a tiny dusting in 38°, yay, some very sweet fast turns, lower down in perfect fun sping corn, all untouched since the access to that run includes some traversing on firm crusts, ridge traversing and climbing . Jones Solution with Spark crampons, and the Deeluxs XV boots performed very well.

Tatanka Head Wow, I head off to Amsterdam for a few days and this happens? Well done, Neni.


I'll ride the rest of this week out, hopefully.
