    LMAO JimG! ...I can see tons of us geezers wandering around in the outdoors grabbin' a buzz and then just tossin' the empty cans wherever ...(it's what we live for! ) Teens of the NE = the sober crowd Admittedly it would sure be nice to have some more terrain to have at least some hiking trails on which to ascend on. Once any amount of accumulation has been reached it's pretty darn tough to make it up without any type of pointer trail to the summit....

    That's perfect. I like it.

    Always get a kick out of the "locals" in MWV. Mom grew up there and I have been going there since I can remember. Almost all of the "locals" are from away. Just a bunch of nimby's. If you can't find areas to go without the crowds not much help for you.

    That's why we're going to go ahead and talk about it. A world full of secrets is not a world of equal opportunity.

    Powder days and knowing how to pull off a season, in spite of other humans, is how you worry about taking care of yourself without the expense of others.

    That gets pushed too far? Les Otten has your back, and he's working on it

    You are getting your terminology mixed up.

    Local: someone who has established residency in a certain location.

    Native: someone who was born in and has familial ties to a certain location.



    Both can be NIMBYs.

    You can be a “former local” but you’re a native even after you’ve moved away.
