  1. I'm a New Mexico native & Taos is beautiful the bowls there rock & they get lots of snow some of the dryest powder you'll ever find. Since they don't allow boards we usually don't go there though. Santa Fe on the other hand is just as good & you can snow board there. I learned to ski in Santa Fe & Taos as a kid & have fond memories of there. we used to there every winter until my dad died. the vistas are unreal. The elevation is really high though & it can be hard to breath sometimes. fattwins you should go sometime for sure

I had heard that the patrol were a little bit nazi ish but this guys anger still took me a bit aback this guy was so angry his fists were clenched, but what i did next stopped him in his tracks like an invisible wall hit him.( are you ready ) I got down in seiza & apologised in japanese. it was magical his whole demeaner changed & he unclenched his fists mumbled something & walked off. Remember to carry love in your heart & follow the path of least resi

  17. solar water heaters rock, however solar panels are another thing entirely. good panels are very costly & not very efficent. not sure how it works here but in the us states vary on thier buy back system. to have your whole house rely on solar alone would be very costly & you would have to have alot of deep cycle batteries to store the power. you get a few cloudy days & then you have to go to back up generator.my place in hawaii is totally solar for refridgeration i have a propane fridge ( they suck) anyhting with a heating element you might as well forget about it (Propane stove &a
