    So this season required a trigger to start the thread.

    What prompted me to do it?

    Was it the 96 degree temperatures here in Placer County, home to Squaw Valley USA?

    Was it me sitting in my swimsuit typing this next to the pool?

    Was it the tent sales this weekend and the anticipated new ski gear? (Maybe, but my focus is on mountain biking, and what kind of deals I could get at those sales.... And I already have a full ski quiver for next year!)

    Was it the new issue of Powder next to my toilet? (Print is dead though, right?)

    Was it @Philpug 's insistence? (Yes. Definitely. Without a doubt.)

    (And yes, that is a squatty potty.)

    If it's before October 31 I will personally make Manhattans and or G&Ts for all at the appropriate tailgate party.

    Not biting on the squatty potty bait.

    Hey I get to post on page 1 of what is going to be a looooooong thread.

    I went to the beach down at Santa Cruz, Wednesday and Friday working on my nice tan.
    And read a Vail email claiming that they will drain funds from my Visa account tomorrow.

    "hope" is not a plan.
