(Hint: You can be a member on here forever without the lifetime membership. All that does from what I understand is block the ads from coming up. You're young - put that $10 towards something you really want or need. If you really want the lifetime membership here, then go for it)
The only thing I want right now is 69 dollars for something to improve my snowboard skills but I can't combine my gift cards to 69 so I just got lifetime!

See look my new shiny "LIFETIME" badge!

The one big thing that I didn't see said here was to avoid wearing anything cotton. Socks and glove being the most important. Merino wool is best but 100% synthetic is fine.

Cotton is a from a plant and will hold water. Once wet, it looses all insulation ability and will stay wet. Synthetics will let water evaporate faster. Merino wool still insulates while wet and releases water fast.

Yeah, I missed that. Thanks for picking up on it!

It's not just tucking in your shirts or sweaters

It's the way you tuck in your shirts & sweaters.

Tuck your undershirt under your your first layer pants, then your next layer over that but under your snow pants.

Sounds confusing reading it back, but basically layer the way you tuck in.

I'm anal about it, that's just the way it has to be with me. One of my buddies always bugs me that it takes me so long to get ready.
It doesn't seem long to me, that's just how long it takes

I usually bug him later in the day when his ass crack is hangin' out & he has ice crust attached to his sweater

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

I just attach the powder skirt of my jacket to my pants and never worry about it.
