  1. It takes more time anguishing about it, than doing it. I'm a perfect example of that. I need to reroof my rental, and am in the same boat, and it's literally in my back yard. I also need to build a 3 stall garage, but not till lumber/plywood prices have come back down to reasonable.

  3. Interest rates don't matter to people who buy for cash. We just had a condo that was purchased for $76K in 2009 that was listed for $469,900, sold in 2 hours for cash, for $490,000. It closed in 3 weeks. There's almost nothing offered under $1,000,000 unless you want to buy a condo with outrageous HOA fees, and I mean up t $20K/year. Many of the houses that are in Big Sky, Seattle/Tacoma/Duluth, are selling for cash offers significantly above asking price. A house across the street from me in Tacoma Wa. sold for $384,000 4 years ago. 2044 Sq Ft on a 5,000 Sq Ft lot that was liste
  4. I'll be Boarding Next year for sure. Double Vaccinated along with this news. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/11/briefing/outdoor-covid-transmission-cdc-number.html?action=click&module=Spotlight&pgtype=Homepage
  5. How lucky is a guy to have a powder day when carrying Bear Spray? Looks like a blast. Smart accessory. I carry one on the handlebars on my Fat Bike (well at least in Montana).
  6. “There are a couple of small studies in children having to do with regular vaccines—not COVID vaccines—that might indicate that taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen before you get the vaccine might reduce your antibody response a little,” says William Schaffner, M.D., an infectious disease specialist and professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. “But nobody really knows whether this has any clinical significance and it’s never been studied on a clinical scale.” So, until more research is done and the implications are understood, it’s best to be cautious and simply avoid taki
  7. Reactions on shots have been mostly nothing special. 1st shot is mostly sore arm, and a few with a feeling of malaise. 2nd shot has been all over the board, but nobody falling falling off the board. Best recommendations for the 2nd shot is to have Ibuprofen or Alleve or Tylenol taken a couple of hours after the 2nd shot, and keep the dose up for up to a day afterwards. I got a short case of the chills about 16 hours later (sleep in between) and then a mild sweat that went away after I took some more Ibuprofen (I had missed the dosage when sleeping). Recommendations: Netflix, Blankets
  8. Take care of yourselves up there. https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/18/americas/canada-hospitals-brace-third-wave/index.html
  9. That was way more fun. Thanks for posting that.
  10. Wonder how it would work with Alpine/Skwal stance?
  11. Let's carry this personal freedom a little further. I assume all of us were born naked, so isn't against my personal freedom to be forced to wear clothes when I didn't come into this world with a pair pants on? Clothes are manmade laws, and you can't give me the argument of decency, because that's not something we were born having to contend with. Don't you see little kids loving to run around naked? Personally I love to run around naked, unfortunately I'm forced to wear clothes which infringes on my personal rights. Having said that I haven't run the "Bare Buns Race" in a lot o
  12. Just for informational sake and not arguments sake, this is what it costs for a TBI, which in turn costs us in Insurance Premiums. Economic Costs of TBI The CDC estimates that the direct medical costs of TBI and the indirect costs, such as lost productivity, total $76.5 billion during a typical year. The cost of fatal TBIs and TBIs requiring a hospital stay account for 90 percent of the medical costs for TBI. About 5 million Americans are living with a TBI-related disability. A person with a severe TBI may require expensive long-term medical treatment, therapy and assistive care
  13. Tippys, Silver Knife, Ambush, all off of the Ramcharger lift which are to the skiers right. Hangmans on the skiers left. Big Horn, Elk Park Ridge, and runs on the back side of Andesite accessed from Ramcharger opposite the 3 I just mentioned. Southern Comfort lift runs which are accessed when you go straight off the Ramcharger lift instead of turning left or right. There's 4 blue runs where you can carve. The best is under the chair, and 2nd best is 1 run over to the right. Swiftcurrent lift has Mr. K, and Lower Morningstar which are skiers left and take the Cat Track 2 runs
  14. Double Blind Spots. We as carvers should know better. There's been enough hits from uphill skiers while making wide turns.
  15. What surprised me was the distance the bear covered and he/she didn't seem fatigued at all.
