  5. we just got back from dinner with Charley. Risa, Slow, Yama-san, my g.f. and Tsondaboy. FT, you hung up before I started saying "Waaa?" Then Tsondaboy goes, "Let me do the WWWWAAAAAAAAAAA!" classic.

  11. Hey, thanks, kuma. me being a punter. the second picture i'm really far away ;3) i'm doing my daily stretches and can feel the knee gaining strength slowly but surely.

  13. butt or ass perfectly fits. well, at least that's what i hear about a lot of people's first day out
  14. haiku has 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. in japanese, there's usually a "season" word in the first line telling you which of the five seasons it is, which i ignore. backcountry magazine has one in every issue.

Say Yes to the No Good friends good weather We wear smiles turn after turn What else do you need?
  15. got a knee brace from the doctor today. it's definitely my MCL. the pain has gone done down considerably. i'm just glad i don't need surgery. when i do a soccer-ball-catch-like movement, the pain is incredible. the next few weeks have to be written off.
  16. sick shots guys. i like the first 2 of jer- different contrast and feeling with the photographer's location from some recent pics kumapix and your arm, if only there were KUMAPIX action figure!

  18. i went to the doctor this morning. surgery is unlikely. it's my MCL (medial/inner) knee ligament that's been over-extended. i'm getting a knee brace soon. i'm just glad i don't need surgery.
  19. thanks for the well wishes, guys. janus, hope the back heals up quickly.

  21. Couldn't ask for better skies. We were concerned about the winds slabs down in the snowpack and the wind scour from the northerlies. A day of sunshine and no new snow in the last 24 hours. What better way than to spend Leap Day on the north faces of Happo? Lap 1 Friday morning, Kumapix and I went to Skyline to find the top Quad closed. We dropped off the north face. Kumapix, slash into the sunshine Me: Lap 2: We met up with Janus and Paedde (his last day of skiing on his Japan journey), we left one car at the exit and double-backed to the gondola. I've been want
  22. thanks for the get-well wishes everyone. went to the hospital in tokyo this morning b/c we don't trust the place i went to on saturday. got 3 x-rays, some shippu, a bandage wrap, and pain killers. it's either part of my ACL or my MCL (medial meniscus ligament); will go back and see the sports specialist--the same guy who helped me with my wrist four years ago--on wednesday. but, the good news is that i'm walking without cruches. what dumb trick to try. mr. wiggles said it best at Tracks Saturday nite: "ooooh, terje, one-footing it! ooo!!" u can always count on your SJ buddies to
