Was looking for a 2012/2013 GNU billy goat 162 anywhere on the planet to ship to aus...the cheapest I find ends up being in Aus! Sometimes you're just lucky.

Hijacking the thread here but I can't stand scotch whiskey! Tastes like turpentine to me! Now Rye on the other hand (Canadian whiskey) is good stuff...

It's ambitious, but I'm going to try and pick up the following for this year:

New boots. Thinking of trying out the new Burton Imperials if they fit well. My first pair (Burton White Collection) is just about torn up and starting to pack out/get loose. I was thinking of getting something a little stiffer.

New 2014 Proto. I sold my SL last year after I bought an Arbor Blacklist. I'm thinking the Blacklist will be for my playing around on the mountain and some in the park board and the Proto would be go to board when I just want to ride. Maybe those types of boards are too similar, I dunno

If I get a Proto, probably either going to get some Cartel's or Malavita's. I had Cartel's on my SL and loved them, but I hear the Malavita's are great too.

Of course, this is all contingent on funds, which may not be there. So I might have wet feet and stick with the Blacklist all year.

Plan a Cat Trip, me and my riding buddies would plan one every year and ever since Peak Adventures in Idaho went out of business (thanks to the state of Idaho) we haven't planned one since. The owner of Peak, Steve suggested RedCats in B.C., as far as that goes, everything in B.C. stomps

It's on my "Wish List" cuz once again, it's not looking good this season. Financially that is,.. But,
I would love to spend 5-6 days at a real Mountain resort! Somewhere with fighting chance that I could be riding in or after a real POW dump, with runs longer than a 1/2 mile and Some real Vert.!!!

What year is your custom? I just bought a 13 one online and I'm wondering how you like it.

I absolutely need new boots. The ones i retired are of an unknown age and used, not to mention oversized. The new boots are going to be stiff for sure.

I am also going to buy a new pair of bindings. Thinking about EST cartels as i now have a channel board and the cartel is well liked among people. Also hinge sounds like fun.

Smoky sounds nice. I say irish as that's what I've liked most so far. And really just not bourbon. They're alright, but not my style.

Something like a 750ml for $50-$60. And I'm intrigued by Canadian whiskey...

Cool

All I wrote on this a few short months ago was new K2 Boots.

Still haven't got those, gonna stop on my way out tomorrow and get some.

I did however buy a 2013 Flow drifter, 2013 Raiden Phantoms, A GoPro hero 3 with all the attachments and a new jacket. I'm tempted to buy another helmet too..


I really turned into a gear whore these last three years. My spare bedroom is stuffed full of gear, I'll be starring on A&E soon... Help!
