Saw that one on the chive. Funny, but only because it's not me.

This is my first WW season so you may see me here soon. I suspect all the pool practice will be for naught the first time I'm in real moving water. Two rounds for whomever catches me getting a beating on cam.

The colloquial term for safety straps is "head beaters."

Meh. I've been using safety straps on telemark gear for years without problems. The ski just slides along with you.

I know, I know, no one cares that I tele. But Michael does!



In any case, I'm disappointing in ya'll for not providing gaper vids during this very depressing off-season.

Back when I was still trying to hard boat, I went and swim in Log Jam on the Parkdale section of Bighorn on the Ark.
So I'm trying to hide behind the rock wall on the right, while I drain my boat, just a hoping that no buddy spots me, and of course, here comes my buddy, boat full of customers. Says to his mers, "now everybody waive, and say, Hi Matt Man!".

You won't be alone, if ya Gape out!
Be safe out there, and feel free to ask plenty of questions.

Ya, I'm disapointed to with the lack of vids!
But guess I aint helpin out much neither.

Ok, I'll throw up another entry. I think the MGD might've played a role in their lack of success. ...which in the bigger picture might be a good thing.
