    Quality over quantity when you're doing it often. Also hard to explain the comraderie, potential danger, and the pure feeling out in the wilderness. Makes the beer back at the truck that much more enjoyable.
    Skiing in the rockies is like 70's porn

    Lots of bush

    Some wood

    No faceshots...

    Wait. Spook liked Blues Traveler?? The more I find out about him the more I'm beginning to think he and I were separated at birth.

    At first I thought the Blues Traveler was in his signature but on closer inspection it might be the quote.

    Either way, I’m gonna cue up some BT today and wonder how life is behind the red curtain.

    Saw them for the first time in 1989 or so in a room that held 500 people. Was amazing.

    There was a long period of time in the 90s/early aughts where I would put this and Jane's Mountain Song
    on the jukebox in whatever bar I was at every opportunity. I was lucky to see both done live. Hell I remember when BT was the main act and Widespread muthafukkin Panic was the opener at Red Rocks

    And why does a dog lick his balls?
    same

    Headed up night skiing with my son @ mighty Mohwak Mountain later if anyone is around.
    Why, you may ask? see above.
