    BRAVO TONTON!!!

    Skiing hardpack at Mad River and Stowe in the late 80s kept me sane. Schmidt, Plake Hattrup et. al. kept me stoked, wound up tighter than an 8 day clock.

    You're watching that again!?!?
    My girlfriend at the time.

    Awesome.
    I met Scot Schmidt at a north face poster signing in the Bay Area. when he asked my where my poster was I asked him if he would sign my car instead. He grinned, followed me out to the parking lot and proceeded to scrawl "NEVER DIE! -- SCOT SCHMIDT" on the hood of my '81 Subaru DL wagon with a massive black permanent marker I had brought for the occasion. The car was eventually purchased for $500 cash from a guy in AK, who after taking possession of the car (with 190k miles on it) drove it to South America and then all the way back to Homer AK.

    So great. Used to dress up in my ski gear, step into my skis, then slide them underneath my couch on hot august days and watch Blizzard of Aaaahhhhhs.

    You see Plake occasionally, Hattrup is still around, Pehota seems to have stepped back but pops out once in a while - Schmidt just disappeared though, always wondered if he got burned out or what. Loved watching this, he was a serious impact on my life.
