    You don't think us tourists have caught on to your good beer???

    Interesting takes re: boots in lot or lodge. Usually I'm skiing midweek and there are plenty of places to stash my shoes / sandwich, no payment necessary, fahkin foolish to put them on in the lot.

    That said, when i would shred w an oregonian (during a brief, misguided stint on the ice coast), he'd always be about the lot, bumpin music from his car suiting up crushing a spliff and morning soda. To each their own.

    Have a full sized yearly locker rental because it is awesome and not much money. So nice to have especially when I can send my girl inside to get ready and keep my extra (tele) boots, poles, snacks, kids skis at the hill. Tele alpine swap is a snap.

    On another note nobody ever guesses we are from the middle west especially when my seven year old leads us down something steep. So I guess we have the mountain look down. Shrug. It is more common to hear someone say you don't look like you are from Iowa. What does an Iowan look like?

    The time I blew my knee I gave myself away....did that like a Midwestern gaper for sure.

    Flatlanders think "all season" tires are great. So you can usually spot them making a mess, and blocking traffic on the road up to the hill.

    I have a "This car climbed Mt Washington" sticker on my box which is sometimes on the Subaru. Full midwestern gaper giveaway which is why I bought it. Maybe my favorite sticker.

    ^Pretty much the mother of all stickers. Might as well say, "The driver of this car is Sir Edmund Hillary."

    My lady friend picked up a huge book of leather samples and then took an old blown out (from knuckledragging) pair of mittens and sewed pieces of the leather onto the tips of the mittens.

    It's friggin' awesome and I can't believe it took us this long to figure it out.

    Hard to tell with the Kincos. They only last about 3/4 of a season so you are continually breaking in new pairs. Sno seal and name/initials sharpied on them = probably not a flat lander.

    whateva werks. I've even seen gloves dipped in urethane and cured. not sure how that is done exactly. then there was the guy with lil trowels sewn into his gloves, which seemed ridiculous....carving kooks.

    real vermonters don't wait in long lines at breweries to buy the kind beer, right ?

    And Subaru's used to be the official "local" sled. Among non-trustafarians at least, which seem to be in the minority of true "locals" these days.

    How to spot a flatlander?

    When I was in Colorado, I asked the checkout lady at Safeway “What aisle the beer was in?”

    She proceeds to tell me that if she took beer from work home that her husband would slap her.
    Pointed me to the liquor store right next door.

    And garnished with tangerine peel...much more rarified than a simple orange slice.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    No thanks. I'll stick with porn. - Benny
