I just received this fantastic email from Jim Jones
Why can't you eastcoasties just go out and have fun and
not self-promote? To me your just another dime a dozen
transplant gumming up the west, Appalachian mts, what
a joke. Don't bother responding I won't read your sillyness.
Its an interesting email for me to receive, makes me question
myself and my motivations.
But what I find funny is him dissing the appalachian mts, what do
they have to do with my eastcoastie antics?They were where my
adventures began, I had so many great times running around the
"Hills" in our backyard. No huge alpine, no thoughts of avalanches,
but regardless lots of great exploration onskis and foot. This comment
makes his email seem more petty.
And yes I do self-promote but I also share and inspire, I hope my
stuff does not come off as egotistical self promotion but more as a
sharing of incredible experiences.
Should I give everyone Jim Jones email and maybe you people can
email him and perhaps he will listen to your silliness?
Apart from that lots has been happening, down in Nelson for the
Coldsmoke festival, a wicked ski down the Face of Ymir with lots of
slough and alpen glow and then some deep powder skiing up the
Asulkan with the Jupiter traverse.
The powder has returned and rejuvenated our psych. 405 000ft
