    I watched that kid drop that thing on friday (not in our party). He looked 19. I was definitely most immortal around that age

    also that rock band is definitely right under the drop, and the drop itself is larger than the photo suggests.

    I think I'm used to being unable to control other people's stupidity, I'm just not used to it having such immediate ramifications on others (edit - or my own stupidity having those same ramifications)

    +1 to that sentiment, its probably close to 40 feet. I saw those tracks and was like...wtf! Pretty big (and stupid) send for any time -if nothing else just due to the remoteness of the place.

    You guys must have had a good session Friday...didn't leave us much!

    That;s not freedom. Americans think freedom means you can do anything you want. Freedom means freedom from tyranny, from foreign powers. Our bill of rights grants us freedom of speech, press, religion, assembly--not the freedom to act with total disregard of others. What the average American calls freedom would never have been recognized as such by the founding fathers.

    OG, thanks for that clarification. Much more well said than myself! Don't wanna get into constitutional issues too much lol but it's just sad that there are people out there that have the idea in their head that they have the right to do whatever tf they want without thinking/caring about the consequences for others. Saw a couple snowmobiles on the Humboldt-Toiyabe side of Chickadee Ridge, they were heading straight for the Ophir Creek meadow if I didn't see them. Jeez, there's a fricken pandemic and everyone's off work and thinks it's a free-for-all. Ugh...

    Hard to tone it back sometimes, and I supposed everyone's comfort/risk level is different. To some, even just walking into the BC is a major risk. For others, 20 ft cliffs may feel like the equivalent of stepping off the curb.

    Stoke? Hmn...if you say so?
    For bc skiers, nothing much has changed eh? Just more of you.
    Honestly more like FOMO for us, fwtw.
    Not making it feel good that we've basically just stayed indoors.

    Explain exactly how one gets a virus from somebody getting out of their own car and travelling into the woods? I'd love to know the physical machinations. Are these magic viruses?

    Talking

    I shouldn't be looking at this thread anymore this season.

    I think it is a good thing to NOT post about your outings. Not stoke, just a FOMO and it adds to the incentive for out of towners to do the same.

    Not here to criticize peeps who are responsibly getting their fix, but please don't share or I'll be forced to show you my road rides on my mountain bike.

    Hope to see ya'll late spring on the eastside or Shasta.

    Who feels the need to get tested then goes out and recreates? If I feel like crap, I'm definitely not going to climb up a mountain.

    And PCR tests are pointless. ANY viral load of any amount or any kind will test positive. I've listened to enough doctors with PHD's the last couple weeks to know that.

    I meant to take a picture, but there's new signs up at AM stating "Forest Service closure. Trespassing $5000 fine". Lol, a tad heavy handed. I guess Sugar Bowl had a guard posted along with signs. Time to get more stealthy.

    If you don't think what is happening isn't Tyranny, you're delusional. This "planned"demic's sole purpose is unlimited governmental powers and to start weening the public to accept more draconian measures in the future. Mandated vaccines, cashless society, social credits, and all encompassing surveillance needs to be massaged into the public's psyche. There will be another worse pandemic in a few years. This is just a test run. The collective, hypnotic psychosis the public is under is jaw dropping. Now everyone is at home and forced to watch the shitty ass news, whose job is strictly to instill fear. (CBS nightly news just got caught using footage from an Italian hospital, claiming it was in NYC). "Social distancing", "we're all in this together", "stay at home" is Orwellian as fuck. They've already started hotlines to call so you can snitch on your neighbors. And for a virus that has now been proven to be only as contagious as the flu. Meanwhile, we're currently having one of the worst NON COVID19 flu/pneumonia seasons in the last 100 years, but since those have a name they don't fit the agenda. Check the CDC statistics, since Nov 1st there's been AT LEAST 3000 deaths per week* of the flu or pneumonia in the U.S. this season.
    And while you're all washing your fucking hands 20 times a day, they're destroying the economy and livelihood of millions. The lives it's ruining financially will cause more deaths and hardship that this virus left unchecked to run it's course. Riots are coming. Buy a gun.

    Quarantine this right here.

    I agree. Even if you are safe, you are encouraging others who may not be. Just go back a few posts to hear a story about a person who tested positive going for a tour. That guy doesnít need to see any stoke of the great conditions he is missing.

    So, 500 and counting have died today already... stop comparing it to the flu. Just stop.

    Hey BG -
    Some folks have a scarier shadow than others. Just because you're not scared of your shadow doesn't mean others don't have a perfectly good reason to be terrified if the sun is shining just right. Don't be an authoritarian and tell others not to panic. That's un-american.

    WOW... it always amazes me that somehow convoluted conspiracy theories always seems more plausible than the more straightforward explanation of "scary new virus is much scarier than known viruses..."

    Whenever I hear these theories, it always reminds me of the dad from "So I Married an Axe Murderer...."
