    Glade Springs/Winterplace ad on forum

    Just noticed the pop-up ad on the right side of the page (sometimes) for Glade Springs and Winterplace in WV. The ad shows a skier doing an iron cross with snow covered mountains in the background. I don't know where the photo was taken, but I can guarantee you that it sure as he!! isn't WV. Talk about false advertising. I don't know why this bothers me so, but it does. End of rant.

    OK, one more....and this one's even more bothersome to me. The Race Face ad that promotes their "Riders Blogs". Features a video of some guy wearing a full face and goggles PUSHING his bike. Maybe they should change it to "Pushers Blogs" or "Posers Blogs"?

    OK, really, this time I'm through.

    Its not the snow, its the mountains in the background. Those mountains are not in WV. Probably the Rockies but surely not WV.

    Hope you "stuck the landing" and didn't bend your pole.

    Not sure if I pulled it out and I think I heard my pole snap when I landed hard.
