    I thought the same, was a bonus episode. Nice surprise though...

    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.

    I'm talking about the actual pedaling of the bike while wearing the skis... you've seen this done? lol... pretty hilarious.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

    Yeah. I'm kinda shocked most people on this forum haven't seen this before. Y'all's drunken shoulder season parties need to get more creative.

    I've seen it done with snowblades but not full sized skis.

    Solid work as usual. But e-bike skijoring works a lot better with waders and snowshoes. What a bunch of beaters. Geez...

    I love this post (by Mrs. GB?) on how to use Gaia and Caltopo to plan ski trips: https://14erskiers.com/blog/2017/01/...-skiingroutes/ I think it's the best compilation I've seen, if a little dated (e.g., CalTopo has an app now). Using Slope Angle Shading makes a world of difference for identifying macro hazards. And you can see ridge-tops winds in CalTopo. Pretty amazing stuff.
    sproing!

    Yeah, inspired by the confusion here, went in and did a hasty little re-title. Gonna go through them all in the coming weeks and retitle and update thumbnails.

    What can I say, I'm a skier, not a YT expert.

    Isn't that why you have this guy?

It's a full on jumble because I pretty much just started with no real plan nor knowledge of how YT works and started rolling. Got into pickles with episodes I didn't complete the line and with the "Super Episodes / Movies" and haven't been able to solve it in a coherent way.

    But hopefully clarity will come soon.
    Seriously great stuff recently, keep up the good work bud!

Showing myself being scared, failing and the reality of the situation is just me being me and that's the only thing I care about being judged on is if I'm honest and authentic or not.
    Which is why the series is fun to watch.......good stuff. About your brain, and the heat exhaustion, are you sure you're brain wasn't fried BEFORE you made the decision to do that ride at noon Next time just have Alex kick you square in the balls and skip the bike ride. Same level of suffering will be achieved.

    @Alkasquawlik, regarding keeping feet warm; my tip is antiperspirant.

    I spray the bottom (especially) and top of my feet just before putting socks on.
    walking around on top of the antiperspirant layer wears it away, and can make the floor slippery :P, so its the last thing you do before socks.
    this means your feet sweat a heap less, if at all, and thus prevents them from getting cold.

    doesn't really do much for ultra hot spring tours, but for 99% other scenarios it works great.
    go from toes so cold you cant feel them or feels like a frozen lump just before your toes, to being comfy all day.

    it doesn't seem all antiperspirants work the same, I think its to do with genetics and different pore sizes, so find and use whatever works for you. please start with some of the more environmentally friendly ones tho.
    I expect there are a bunch of anti-antiperspirant people out there. but I'll choose to keep frostbite off my toes every time.

    oh, and of course merino/bamboo socks.

    Thatís a very interesting tip that Iíve never thought of. Not an antiperspirant fan, but lord knows Iíve put way worse things into my body. Iím going to have to give it a try.

    The FIFTY

    I donít relate. My touring partners and I pretty much all use ďnon-breathableĒIntuition liners in our touring boots, day after day, year after year, without issue. But for the coldest of days, my feet are always warm and dry. Whatís the deal with all you sweaty feet people?

    Moisture mgmt for hands and feet. I have sweaty feet and hands. Iíve used intuition lines since the late 90ís, and used to struggle with the stinky soaking wet liner interior problem on multi day trips. Ive been using thin vbl socks for 20 yrs. my feet stay warm cuz the liners are very warm, liners stay dry, feet are soaked just like they would be without the vbl sock, and the liners never stink. I wear latex or nitrile gloves against my skin with similar success (Iíll even do this in the summer when Iím wearing leather work gloves). Iím considering vbl for my nethers cuz that shit gets super moist, and those monkey butt daysÖ.

    I had not heard of that new gtx fabric. 2 gtx jackets seems spendy for us mortals.

    I like that non-petrol synth base layer fabric.
