  1. Case numbers climbing for the last three days and the premier said schools will be open in Sept. if he has to drive the bus himself. He might have to change that to an Ambulance. Apparently third dose of Pfizer give 11X the protection but sadly can't get a third dose yet. Stay safe everyone !
  2. Been farming for 40 + years and have never been able to predict anything with any certainty. If it's cold enough to go snowboarding in the winter i do . If not then there is always something that needs to be fixed and the weather is never one of them !
  3. I suppose in times to come our sport will be measured in terms of carbon negative or carbon positive but for now I bow to the guys that measure the season in vertical .
  4. Scottishsurfer sorry to hear of your illness. When people are careful in their activity level it is disturbing to hear that you still contacted Covid. One wonders how others can flaunt the recommendations and justify or rationalize it . West, I used to say there's no cure for stupid but more and more it would seem people like to flaunt the idea that they are bucking the norm or accepted behavior and proud of it . How are health insurers in the US not going bankrupt over Covid coverage ? We have universal health care in Canada but I'm at the point where I'd like to see the Gov't say if your not vaccinated due to medical conditions and you get sick the bill is on you ! My doctor suggested to me the other day that some of her patients who used multiple excuses for not getting vaccinated were actually using these excuses to mask the fact that they were actually afraid of needles (usually big tough guys) !
  5. Slight uptick in #s due to delta variant. Not expecting it to stay low much longer. Vaccine rates dropping as time goes on. I guess a return to "normal" isn't a priority .
  6. Is the idea to fillet the fish before you catch them ?
  7. 1934-2021 Who didn't want to be him ?
  8. Or the brass helmet to go along with the lead boots !
  9. I have a set of those bindings if you are interested in putting the package back together an reliving your youth. Can't help with the onezie maybe dredman can ?
  10. Didn't any of you listen to your grandpa ? Things are going to hell in a hand bag ! Retired government employees on a pension with benefits are moving to all the "nice" places we working stiffs live and are screwing it up for our kids. Fact of life accept it and move on ! I could live on the access road to Turner but i would want hydro from a pole not a generator but then as soon as that was available the road would be littered with homes. Cherish your peace of heaven before it's gone !
  11. Delta variant posed to be the next issue in Canada as well. Toronto hospital celebrated no covid patients then a few days later another hospital reported multiple delta cases of emergency staff with no apparent contact . Enjoy your turns ! What's with the little blue icon ? Already have too many "senior" designations attached to my person ! !
  12. I can see the advantage. Trying to run with them with regular bindings will launch you skyward !
  13. Montana is up there on my list but why would you want to spoil someone else's playground. A case of beer and a meet and greet with the groomer crew can do a lot to make your favorite run better no matter where you ride.
  14. What motor and transmission did you go with ?
  15. I wouldn't want your wife to hear you say that. Unless your looking to get into trouble.
  16. If your like me (serious denial and old age around the corner) you have a pet project you have been planning to get to some day . Well the day isn't here yet and you still have it squirreled away somewhere. What is it and why haven't you tackled it yet ? Mine is a bugeye sprite, motor was rebuilt 20 years ago oiled and shelved multiple boxes of parts body panels and crates of extra parts. The pandemic should have been the impetus to get this done but there is sits. what's your story. I promise I won't contact your significant other and shame you ! ( It's been 42 years !)
  17. Much cheaper if you do it as a layover on a flight to Europe well not really cheaper since you are going to spend time and money in Iceland and Europe.
  18. When we were kids our local bumps had rope tows. You could go up the hill faster than you could come down especially when a friend was driving the tow and threw it in third gear. Tremendous for building upper body strength.
  19. It's on the bucket list. Meeting up with kids in Salmo and traveling down for some fun and sun. Probably need a wheelchair lift by the the time the border opens and vaccination levels are where it's safe to traverse the country. Nice to see that you don't have to jump off the cornice but I worry it will attract more never evers . I think you would need thunder thighs to get up that lift on the Skwal .
  20. I thought it always was ! At least with their feelings about the east.
  21. We must be getting better Leaf's vs Canadiens in Toronto tonite 500 front line workers allowed ! First large gathering sine start of pandemic. Montreal had a crowd of 2500 so Toronto has to do something in the way of rabbit out of a hat to win. And the Leafs loose again ! 1967 was a while back.
  22. Apparently she hasn't dropped off Neil's radar ! I've given up on my old crushes who wants to chase after someone's grandmother ?
  23. Was recently vaccinated and he thought symptoms were just results of that. He got worse, was hospitalized, ventilated after three days and died . He did a media interview from the hospital the day before he was put on ventilator. He didn't seem to be in too bad of shape. My wife and I have taken covid seriously but this adds a new perspective that's been missing up to this point.
  24. My cousin died last nite his wife 5 days before covid now has a face.
  25. Sorry wasn't trying to get you in trouble.
