OK, OK, OK. Here it is.

This is the place to debate politics, global warming, and yes, even the origin of man, whatever. Simply put, if you want to argue about off topic stuff, you've found the right board. Have fun!

You finish telemarking for the day. You walked up 800 feet and telemarked, not telefaked, down the hill with your late-1960s Madshus and mid-1970s leather boots.

On the way home you stop into your favorite bar and grab a growler of Guinness that is as good as the Guinness that the Anchor Bar in Portstewart serves or you grab a brewery-fresh growler of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Pick yer poison.

You get home and pour a pint into your favorite pint glass that you bought for $20 in Galway Ireland in 1978. You sit down in your favorite chair and listen to this song. As you listen, you take a journey to the center of your mind and understand with a sense of finality superior skiing, superior beer, and superior music.

Rituals are a pretty important way of cementing in, and reliving memories.
We don't give them enough credit.
It's very "Jungian"...especially if you're listening to Tool. :D

Okay. THAT may be going out on a limb, but I applaud your passion for your rituals.
Thanks for sharing.
