  1. Sad to hear. I have really enjoyed the forums and valued all the information and knowledge freely offered. Learn't heaps. Good to hear that I will still be able to view existing threads but will miss the interaction with other SJr's. All the best for the new direction
  2. yep. awesome - btw still working on my go pro footage but tio better trained that our two. Renovation works holding things up - but moving along nicely
  3. What is the difference? Burton wise - for the average joe. Is the nug a shorter board mainly making resort/ piste riding more fun but handles powder due to reverse camber? (As Ippy suggests - quiver killer) Lets say your optimum board length is similar to Ippy at 156-158. But the fishcuit aimed at being a short powder specific board / s profile, setback, etc and possibly downsized from 156-158 , more at tree riding off piste (more responsive due to size rather than upsizing to a standard / stiff fish which would bomb deep powder days but due to stiffness, could be less manoeuvrab
  4. Something light hearted - enjoying "fools" when I get a chance to watch. Mr.T comparing on people doing stupid stuff which usually involves pain.
  5. It was just a thought - the rules are probably for the best. If the trip eventuates may have to use public transport - just really liked the idea of having the freedom with having a vehicle. Over here, I reckon a couple cartons of beer would fix the rego / insurance issues with certain people. Who likes aki aji?
  6. Just went for a bush walk up the hills behind where I work - have been meaning to do so for years - was an enjoyable way of getting some exercise
  7. I just did some costing on hiring a car/ van, maybe for next trip with the idea to explore some out of the way places. It's might be a last minute organise for a snow holiday this season but could be for an extended period. I put in the dates at 23 dec to 23 march and one site came back with a cost of about $6 - 7 k au, approx 600000 yen I think. This got me thinking, maybe just buy a car then sell it when leaving. A lot of backpakers on longer holidays do that over here. Next the web search on how to costs involved/buying a car in Japan - the gist of it was that it is a major pita to
  8. Hope to use this info one day, hopefully sooner than later, appreciate the efforts for improvement
  9. I thought someone posted a video of skiing inthe streets of Tokyo around the time there was that big snowfall last seaon , when it snowed over a metre in a few days
  10. That is a concern Δ Then a toss up between pair of black frayed edge session pants and a grungy olive green Katmandu thermal - wish I could say it was my helicopter!
  11. It could be considered a bit old fashion in this day and age - but - I do enjoy a game of cards. A friends mother showed me how to play Canasta although I never really understood. Just recently I down loaded it to my phone and have enjoyed learning / playing. Does any one else enjoy a card game and are there card games specific to countries re: where did bridge originate from & do you need to be a certain age to play / or just be able to score?
  12. I was wondering what this all about - but saw a Samsung smartwatch on the tv this morning. One of those things would last 2 minutes with me - they look too fragile for what I do & where would you wear one. Out to dinner or social event?
