Re: 4th

Teleman, I hope you had a happy 4th! I believe everyone has the right to speak their minds and beliefs. I also believe rude and uncouth is rude and uncouth. I grew up in Detroit after the riots. Most Black people hated White people then. Most white people were afraid of white people. When the black ...

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

Thanks for the update Canna. What happened to Chuck Flannel? Are you guys under a serious lockdown? I have been essential, and worked right through. You can believe it was safe enough to work it was safe enough to play outdoors! Someday in the next couple of years, I want to spring ski in New Hampsh...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

Jholmb, Since you were kind enough to use English measurement for us American readers, I will be a bit lazy and offer only English measurement. I am 5’ 9”, about 190 lbs, I poured concrete for about 20 years. I ski the green Gamme at 210 cm, in my rolling terrain. I live in an area of glacially depo...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

39D31306-5611-49CA-84A8-2466FBC7B479.jpeg It has been years since I have walleye fished on the opener. I had no idea the river could have so many people. I paddled a long way to find unoccupied holes. That meant I paddled a long way back upstream to get back to the truck. It was still nice, and I d...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

In my parts, the snowpack just isn’t deep enough. Hooking debris that’s anchored deeper is never fun. Rockered skis help for that. I’ll be out on my favorite little river tomorrow fishing for walleye. It will be strange. It is opening day for walleye and trout. We usually celebrate the trout opener ...

Re: The most supportive leather 75mm boots commonly available now?

I wore my Ski March for the month of October on my 2-3 mile dog walks. Then it snowed and I went skiing. However I live a charmed life. Fish seem to like me. For some reason why the women didn’t realize what a charmed life I lead. It took years for me to understand all the trouble I avoided ;)

Re: The most supportive leather 75mm boots commonly available now?

Roelant, I am sure the Nansen is a capable ski, I do have my doubts about how well it turns. I say this based on my experience with my Gamme. I have a US Army surplus Åsnes double cambered ski in 200 cm. I can ski that easily on intermediate runs with the Alico boot. Now could I make turns with the ...

Re: The most supportive leather 75mm boots commonly available now?

Why not try using light plastic boots like Excursions if you are looking for more dh control? They weigh about the same as heavy leathers and perform well for both k+g and dh. Plus they are waterproof and warm! Connyro, I have both T-4’s and Alico Ski March boots. While the T-4 is more powerful, th...
