  Big Sky Ski Patrol 

Wow.   Shocked

From what I heard about your parking ticket enforcement, combined with what I've disclosed in my own reports about my tendancies to duck ropes, mis-interpret signs and generally bluff patrol, I don't want anything to do Big Sky on a day when you're working there. 

I glad the Summit County deal came in before Bozeman.

Josh that shirt is hilarious!

And it's more like the free big sky season pass that comes with the patrol, the chance to get experience using my EMT license, my feelings on turning a blind eye to people like Tommy, and the image stuck in my head of three big sky patrollers traversing way, way over above the turkey bowl and then skiing down three separate, long, steep untracked chutes that the public couldn't access.

That and patrol members get ticket discounts at other mountains so when I drive down to Jhole and CO to see friends, it'll be cheaper to ski there.

Nice car buddy, get rid of dem fancy tires and grab some On / Off's or snows. My subie handled like a sunken row boat with the stocks on her. Was not impressed at all and thought Subie drivers didn't know what snow driving was like, then new tires and OMG dude! thing is like a snowplow. This winter I drove it right through a 4 foot snow bank and got stuck, unstuck and then drove through  it with more speed for good measures, making through that time. Thing is unreal sometimes. Out there though get some chains and leave them in the trunk, you will never get stuck with them.

those are mud+snow tires I have on there now. Tim's forester got us around just fine last winter on a worn out set of Yokohama all seasons so I'm gonna see how it goes this winter with the mud/snows on it and then upgrade if I need to. This car is awesome, love it to death.

Day 2 of the road trip finds us 1557 miles into the trip to Montana in Worthington, MN. Tomorrow will take us to Devils Tower in WY and almost all the way to Bozeman. Sunday morning we'll show up in Bozeman. It's been a great, safe trip so far with the Subie stuffed full of my stuff and my 2 bikes on the roof. I'm averaging 23mpg @ 75mph. Some pictures from the trip.

Sears/Willis Tower in Chicago this morning.


856 miles to go!

Tomorrow will take us to Devils Tower in WY

The first ascent route (can't remember the name) is an EASY 5.7 with straight forward route finding and simple and ample protection, either with nuts or mostly medium cams.  Rap descent -- take two ropes and some throw-away slings.

We saw a couple guys climbing and I'll have the pictures I took probably tomorrow or the next day, depending on how long moving into the house takes. It looks like a great place to climb.

This is South Dakota. It all looks like this. The field on the right is sunflowers. Millions of them.


Subie at a rest stop in SD.


We're in Sheridan, WY tonight and will be in Bozeman tomorrow morning.

I'll steal ya a few plants on the drive back in May surf.

I'm pretty well settled into the house now, which is huge and very close to campus. I'm working on getting internet access set up...but Qwest can't get here until Friday. I tethered my droid (why does that sound dirty?) and I'm now rocking a 1.5 megabit connection over my phone. It's been raining here since I got here, and we had some snow in the mountains this week. It's supposed to snow a little bit more next week, too, as temperatures will dip into the 30s overnight.
