You are right! Kind of silly and hypocritical to worry about ski wax when there are worse sources of pollution etc. I think this has been on my mind because I ski in YNP along the Gallatin river and its tributaries. Such a pristine area makes me more concerned about river/ground water pollution.

This is the best nature show on the planet....Foliage is good every year but right now it's the best this old guy has ever seen.....Probably the drought but so far beyond the norm as to set a new standard....Gawd!...TM

Will be funny....Harvest was good....real good....Lightly waxed those Merrill doubles from Phill...At the house and guest room ready...How is the house going over there?...Get a little info from Da King...TM

New cabin has walls, windows, door and roof. No woodstove in there yet. Still staying in oldcamp. Should have solar power and propane backup generator done this week. Have plenty of firewood this year, had to cut a dozen old maples to build cabin. Bringing my own boots with me this winter. Yes I recall climbing highto tie off the roof; also shooting down that huge dead branch with the 12-guage.

T-man: I had a change in plans...Solar guys still haven’t finished power hook up for my off-grid cabin. So I will not be in Vt this weekend.
