I'd recommend the Heritage as a 2nd board for what you're talking about. I've got one from 2010 I think and love it, forgiving but also maintains some freeride capability. As I understand it the...

There are more than 3, and honestly for the size of the town and where it is geographically I don't think the night life is all that bad. Besides the ones already mentioned there's the Dubliner,...

I'm curious why you're having problems getting someone to rent to you. Is it because of the ages of the people in your group? If that's not it I can't really understand why you'd be having problems...

By an inflation-adjusted dollar, the average CEO makes four times what they did in the 70's for doing the same job. Are they really four times more valuable? Meanwhile, middle class wages have been...

No, I said some things that just show we have a difference of opinion on the entertainment/thrill value of the local mountains and what is worth putting up with to get to them. There are a lot more...

Sorry, but there is no way I would spend 5 or 6 hours in the car during one day to ride on just any old day at any of the local hills. Maybe it's worth it to you or the OP if you like to spend a lot...
