    Not where we lived....

    There was a large group of us that took turns buying the MLB package so we could watch the Sox. One of our group was a shift supervisor at the Bud plant in B-ville. That...

    One thing I noticed for sure in my limited time at JHMR this year. The skiers there were much poorer than when we last visited in 2012. Is it Ikon? Don't know but the difference was noticeable...

    I definitely owe you one. I should be able to get the boat to SoVT. If he's going to NoVT, Peruvian may be able to assist.

    Yes indeed. This year I am definitely making a week-long Maine swing.

    For a while, they abandoned the SS name and called it Woodstock Six or something like that. Can't remember the timeframe but pretty sure they did that.

    My limited data set on baseball fans in the upstates:
    CNY: it's about 1/3 Yankees, 1/3 Mets, 1/3 Red Sox (which I found odd....)
    Capital District: 80% Yankees, 15% Mets, 5% Red Sox

    FWIW...

    ^ Agree.

    It's an historical name for an historical ski area but it's not a good look.

    SW NH is nothing like the NEK in both good ways and bad. Personally, I never wanted to live in NH because most of the people I met (Lakes Region mostly) seemed like escaped Massholes. ...

    We used to look down on peeps from Rutland...my relatives are all rednecks also.

    Thnx! I was looking for the entire 3 weeks for all of Austria and nothing was coming up west of Innsbruck. Will narrow the dates and see if zooming in on the search lands any fish.

    Great info, thanks.

    I've probably skied more days at Hintertux (Zillertal) than any other place in Austria and I agree on the "feel".

  28. Seeking Input on Planning a 2023 Ski Vacation in Austria

    Why Austria? Because it's cheap and so am I. Plus, I had so many great ski days there in the late 80s/very early 90s. Plus I speak passable German but no French or Italian.

    My next door neighbor...

    Go to the Olde Bryan Inn. Wife and I had mugs in the bar there. Sit outside if t's a nice day. I'm sure Benny would not approve which is all the more reason to go.

    Atlantic Seafood in B-ville was great. I actually preferred it over Doug's. Their coleslaw is vinegar based, not mayo. Haven't been since 2009. May have to hit it this weekend.

    Bump. No action so wondering if the no shipping clause is the issue or if the price is too high? I saw this exact same bike on Pinkbike and the person was asking $2,700 which is ridiculous.
