    Remembering When Skiing Meant War...

    And I am not talking about the great '80's Snowboard massacres.

    10th Mountain Division skis ressurected!
    They were just rotting away in the yard...

    Nice. I almost got to do a stint last summer trudging around the Sierra at the MWTC for a communications system test. Unfortunately I got redirected to spend a lovely 2 weeks at the Great Dismal Swamp in SE VA.

    It’s a little known fact that during WWII young soldiers were downhilling on the old Appian Way passes on cobbled together 26” klunkers. Trump said so.

    It is for me.

    Or are you trying to be cryptic and tell us you have got the new bike and your 26er is no more?

    Speaking of which, I have a circa 2008 Titus Racer x sitting in the garage, unridden for at least 3 years. What should I do with it? Doesn't currently have brakes or a wheelset but I do have spares of both so could get a running bike going again to sell pretty easily but not sure if it is worth it. XO 3x9 Thomson parts. Opinions welcome.

    Use it as a grocery getter or wall art. Or give it to an up and coming rider. Not worth selling for the little it’s worth. Wall art as Titus is no more it could end up being a museum piece.

    I would have made a shot ski with it. I have a nice Cut N Jump water ski that is in the process of becoming a shot ski.

    The order of posts varies by the view selected by each user — hybrid, etc. Not everybody’s screen shows the same post order.

    Which is why it’s frustrating whenever people don’t use the “reply with quote” option (when they’re replying to a specific post). Because of different view options, not everyone knows who they’re replying to.

    Speaking of which I find it funny when someone says something like, “See post #21” when post #21 isn’t the same for everyone.

    Back on topic a bit. Cool resurrection. We have spent some time up in the hills around Camp Hale by Leadville, 10th mountain HQ until the mid 60's. All the building foundations are still there. Kind of a cool place. We have found a few old artifacts too. One was a canteen full of some skunk whiskey.

    A couple of years ago we were up elk hunting and noticed a lot of the dispersed camping areas had these little white flags, like utility markers all over the place. We were eating lunch one day and a small crew came through our area with metal detectors so we started up a conversation. They were looking for unexploded ordinance.. Actually the flags were just spots where they got hits, not necessarily ordinance. Apparently the park we were camping in was an artillery range during ww2. They said the place had been gone through many times already so it was safe but I guess they have to keep after it for quite a long time.

    I love skiing but boats are expensive. Skiing season is about to happen within the next months when summertime rolls in, but at the moment I don’t know anyone who owns a boat.
    Don’t frail and blow if you’re going to Braille and Flow.
