I haven't torn any of my ACL/MCLs
I haven't shattered my knee cap
I don't have to wear a leg brace
I've never had any surgery.

I had a college roommate who has to use crutches for the *rest of his life* (from disease, not injury). Small wonder that I would see something like that first hand and come to the decision that trying to take care of myself so that maybe I can jog with my nephews/grandkids/etc without needing a cane or walker when I am 60 yrs old.

All things considered, I would rather be a sissy than a macho dumb-ass.

Unless you're a noob or doing park, knee pads are for sissies. Look up and cup the balls

jello24 here in the PNW, i only rock boxer shorts that go down to above the knee and some Salomon ski socks from the knee down. I get the same coverage as thermals, without actually paying $30 for them.

Concentrate your layers on your core instead. As long as your body core is warm, your extremities will be fine.

snowklinger here's a relevant mash quote for ya:

Hawkeye: Did you see that?
Nurse: What?
Hawkeye: A big red bird with fuzzy pink feet.
Trapper: Hawkeye, did you see that?
Hawkeye: What did you see?
Trapper: A big red bird with fuzzy pink feet!
Hawkeye to the nurse: See?

Is that a MASH quote or are you living up to your username?

Before my trip out west I'd like to get everything I need. No real way to test this here in FL as it's been 80*... What if anything do you need to wear as a midlayer for uninsulated pants?

Nah, seriously though, Tahoe gets hot. Sometimes I go basketball shorts and nothing else. I usually go compression shorts and nothing else. Sometimes b-ball shorts over compression shorts. When I'm up in the North West or on reaally cold tahoe days, I do compression shorts with track pants.
I don't think I've ever worn an actual base layer.

seriouscat I used similar for snowmobiles. It would be too warm for snowboarding imo.
