Glad you got out Teleman, but take it easy, we both know that falling is part of skiing. Shoot I really can't ski if I can't fall. Hopefully your wife will be tossing you your keys, and getting you out of her hair very soon.

What happened was I had about a thousand feet of wonderful powder....We call the run the Northeast Fields...heh...Big trees everywhere but with zillions of openings....I mean for Big tree skiing probably as good as it gets except for the Old Growth Forest up in Wheelock Vermont that was cut about 15-20 years ago....(1200verts) down to Flagg Pond....Telewheels and I cut off and headed down the Northeast fields and it was the best of the season up to that point....12-14 inches of fast powder...Telekid needed more so he kept going up and down in different areas....Got to Boots penthouse...( a horse barn with an upstairs windowed open room with views of Mansfield and the Worcester range....Raged about the skiing and had a few brews and some Vermont green....Telekid came back and he had had a great ski....Got ready to head home and had put gear and what not in Telekids car and got ready to head out....Don't remember much after that...Figure I stumbled on the stairs flew off the 6 foot stairwell and as the boys say was out for 10 minutes or so.....Next I remember is heading in an ambulance to Copley Hospital then an eye blink or two of heading to Dartmouth Hickok.....Seriously wonderful people there....Now am waiting to see them on the 18th for their "go skiing" report....Will however get a helmet from Don over at Mountain Opp's in Stowe....Doc's said I really can't bump my head again....Got six inches of cold smoke last night and figure Telekid is getting face shots as of right now....Arc it all boys and girls.....Teleman

Soooo Rock what's the water temp down there????? Since I can't ski and the ice is very bad on all road surfaces....I'm am getting weaker....Bummer!!!!! Trock we have tons of snow up here....Will see what happens as the ground isn't frozen underneath because of the early snows making November this year the best in memory....Think the sap is going to run soon unless the winds are out of the South or East.....With such deep snow tapping is going to be difficult....But the Syrup is out of this world....TM

A helmet sounds like a good idea Tman, you should consider wearing it when you're drinking beer. :lol:

80’s down here in the Keys. Used up the sweet syrup you gave me. Biking most days, canuing on others. Come down for a visit when you get tired of mud season or snow.

Could run today but who knows?.....Never get tired of snow Rock!!!!!! Low angle I think it was the boots that caused it....Had thought that I might want to take off the boots and put on other shoes because the Duckbills had been kinda clumpy as I get older....Shoulda listened to my thoughts...Will change from now on....This coming Monday will see the Trauma team at Dartmouth Hitchcock.....Keeping my fingers closed...TM

Got a helmet yesterday....Kinda funny because Tkid was with me and hoped to get either a Fischeer 88 or a Fischer 70....Don the owner said to Telekid that the Rossi line was going to be replaced and Telekid looked at the 110....Man did he get a deal!!!!!! Figure next year he will get some skinnies and Agnes will be a potential player...TM
