    20 years ago today I posted online for the first time at powmag.com

    I can't back that up, but I'm pretty sure it was around 20 years ago, I know it was in September 1999.

    - I had no one to ski with, i found then became fast friends with a bunch of kooks here.
    - I was told that stockli asteroids were the shit, so I bought them.
    - I was an assistant controller at a tiny firm, I was in corporate hell.
    - I was married to my first wife, I was still in school, my two girls were still littles.


    --This forum took me out of corporate hell and I actually worked for the oddities that now run the board. I moved to Jackson WY. I skied 100 plus days a year for years. I grew my hair out.

    My Dad died, TGR went bellyup and we laid everyone off. I moved back to Utah. I bought homes to flip, the market crashed. I got divorced. Life was REALLY bad.

    This forum was here. Thank you.

    I remarried, I got in arguements with friends here, I don't see them anymore, haven't talked to em in years. It was all very serious and dramatic I'm sure, but I can't remember what it was about.

    I haven't skied in 4 years.

    I'm a CFO of a really large regional firm. I do million dollar m/a work. Somehow I have convinced myself that it's all worth it.

    I miss skiing.

    I miss my friends.

    I miss this board.

    Not the 20 year anniversary post I was planning, here's to another 20 - I hope most of us are still topside.

    I remember you back from when I was a lurking Jong in the 2000's...

    The mountains are still there
    Some of your kook buddies are still here.
    And there are many more new kooks trying to keep the TGR stoke alive.

    Cheers to your 20th!

    Well fuck. Sounds like you have plenty of money to ski. Hire some worthless lackey to do whatever you yell at them over the phone from the chair and get after it.

    Just ski down there and jump off something for crying out loud

    You are the reason I have this name instead of the shitty one I chose to ask inane question while trapped high school computer graphics class.

    Lots of people are still around here in various forms. Most of them still like skiing.

    Skiing is still fun.

    I'm just a jong, it's only been 14 years here and just a hair under 20 online in general.

    You've posted some of the best stuff on here, you should post more.

    Son, you need to get back to skiing. It nourishes the soul.

    Possibly, things got a little sideways for a bit. Not to say it wasn't fun, just not sustainable.

    Scotty said hi when we had a few beers in Atlanta. He's doing great, not the advres of old...
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Burning match story=Iceman.

    I feel pretty honored to be one of the few you still see occasionally and the last person you were skiing with.

    frozen's stories, at least the ones I'm referring to, were all dating related.

    Bob's right, the matchstick one was iceman.

    alas, frozen seems to be one of the people fond of thread deletion, they all are gone.

    nah, just never posted them under frozen, used my alias - "alias". I forgot that password so its orphaned now. Pretty sure they are all there.

    like here for example.
