    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    Shug, the fact that being with your good friend Hickery means more to you than celebrity with strangers says a lot about you. Success to you always. And btw - sooper nice pants!

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Well deserved and looking towards even more colourful videos to come
    I can't buy something without first considering whether I could just make it myself instead. How'd I get so screwed up?

    Once again, you have shown what a stand-up guy you are. Old friends trump strangers any day of the week.

    So basically if you were to wear that stuff around where I live you would fit right in with the "rest" of us. Most of the town looks like they just walked out of our local REI, or other outfitters we have. Then again it is the INW.

    Nice score, and IMO I wouldn't want to do any alpine stuff either. Not really my cup of tea.

    Have fun with Hickery.
