  1. Good luck with that Come to think of it, it's no surprise you can't get avi gear in SK given the lack of BC riding/skiing
  2. Only joking - would love to sample your handiwork (though I hear your scones are a bit dry)

Seriously though Ippy, it must be cheaper to source this stuff in South Korea than over here - I saw your comment in the other post if you hadn't already guessed

  5. Yeah, I like that one but it always makes me hungry!!
  6. Now you`re talking - but where are the Brussels???
  7. Is this the start of a dodgy-looking vegetable photos thread??
  8. Guys, I've got to see these as and when you've finished them so please post some pics
  9. Have just seen this on the evening news. A bloody good reminder that i need to go on an avi course and sort myself out with a transceiver!!
  10. You need a milestone birthday and lovely wife I've had both of those but still don't have a Gentem

  12. Sounds like we both need to be careful otherwise we'll end up with as many boards as Ippy!
  13. I spent most of last season thinking about getting a new board. After many hours of online research, deliberation and talking to (and boring) anyone who would listen, I narrowed my choice down to 2:- one of the original YES boards (the 156.5, yellow and purple one with camrock, an assymetric sidecut and serrated edges) and a Ride Machete - both highly acclaimed boards with interesting rocker technology. The YES board was my 1st choice, mainly because of the spec but I also liked the story behind it’s creation. However, many other people obviously thought the same and it quickly sold
  14. Will definitely be going back to Kamui again. I only went there once last season and although it hadn't snowed for a few days, still found some untouched powder Shame there are no more meat pies to be had in Cafe 751

If it dumps before the year's out (wishful thinking), maybe I'll head up there then otherwise it'll have to wait until I'm back from Hokkaido in March. Looking forward to a free day on the hill in any event!
  16. Congrats on the flight booking and ski ordering! When do you arrive in Furano?
