    Finally took my first plunge into a VT swimming hole. 48' and it felt like my chest was going to explode. Move is complete, save a bad appraisal, the PA house is sold, should settle by Sept. 10. Binge shopped ski gear and passes 2 nights ago, wifey is bed ridden post-op, so she won't see the deliveries for the next few weeks. It's all about timing.

    Anyone interested in a set of back steel wheels and snow tires? 205/55/16 General Alitmax Arctic tires with about 15k miles on them, prob 50-60% tread left. Bolt pattern in 5x112, coming off a '15 VW GTI. Wheels will fit most newer Audi/VWs and plenty of Japanese cars. Pick up near Montpelier, make me an offer. Happy to provide pics later today.

    A REI just opened in North Conway? The population doesn't seem to fit their typical model. And investing in brick and mortar...wow.

    There are quite a few of those and some other species of protected wildflowers in the area. Logging ended in the early 20th Century. Mining ended brfore that. It is unlikely that planting was their work.

    Hikers frequented the area from the late 19th to present and skiers in the 20th/21st century skiers were unlikely to have planted them.

    Looking like it'll be independent this winter.

    vtdigger.org/2019/09/05/vail-showing-no-interest-but-competitors-eye-jay-peak-as-sale-process-presses-on/

    Vail Resorts, a ski industry behemoth that has been gobbling up local resorts in recent years, is not interested in Jay Peak. Other companies, however, have visited the Northeast Kingdom resort, a company official told a local town board during a recent meeting.

    One of the could-be buyers that has toured Jay Peak is a rival of Vail in the resort consolidation business, Alterra Mountain Company, based in Denver, Colorado, which also owns Tremblant ski resort in Quebec and Stratton in Vermont.

    Working narrow sections. Not getting too wide can be tricky.

    Nice. Me and my son got to ski with him at Platty. Very cool down to earth guy. Really generous with his time. He got a kick out of my old K2s as well
