  2. Anyone know how to fix cracks on the plastic, sand-filled weights used on a barbell?

    The sand isn't leaking out yet, but it's probably just a matter of time. I'd like to try to salvage them, but realize I may just need to upgrade to better equipment.

    Ditto the above, I like skiing alone... no waiting for slower companions, no taking breaks when you don't want to, etc.

    Ragged's terrific, and you probably won't find many people here who would say otherwise. If you think your daughter will go another 3 or 4 more times before the end of the season, it'll be money...

    Other parts of the country have Cici's Pizza and other chains that offer this daily, but nada in New England. What gives?

    I'll be there this Friday. Birches was fun before they added snowmaking, but it was open so infrequently that I guess the addition of snowmaking isn't a bad thing (and it obviously gives mountain...

    In 5th grade a good friend of mine's father took him and his sister out of school for a week to go skiing. I was stunned because his parents were always sticklers for school attendance. Long story...
