  1. First post under the new look of the site. Works great! Thanks. These are pics from a very snowy Feb 2010 at Blue Knob, PA.
  2. Looks like the site got a new look on 23 Sep 2020? Any special new features we should look for?
  3. Snowshoeing in Grand Teton NP, WY, Feb 2020.
  4. I've been back in the Wash DC area since late July. Trying to ride my old hybrid bike fairly often. Here are some photos from the East, Aug-Sep 2020. Spent two weeks in Aug at the beach in North Carolina, often rode on the nice flat road seen to right below next to ocean. My wife enjoyed riding at the beach too. This is a bike trail near my home in Northern VA. It's green here! And there are a lot of people and deer. This is the house I grew up in. My parents bought it new in 1959 for $25,000 and owned it for 45 years. Probably worth +800K now.
  5. More background on these photos HERE.
  6. Thank you! The first is from 1976, our family ski cabin about one mile from Blue Knob ski area in western PA. The second is me (backwards ball cap) with a friendly guide at a fine Austrian ski area called Zauchensee in 2003.
  7. Anybody know how to convert bmp to jpg? Thanks.
  8. Here are a bunch of old ski photos that represent a walk down memory lane for me. Can anyone get the second and third photos to show? They are bmp format.

  9. My fun and games in Utah are over until next winter. On 19-22 July 2020 I completed a 2,200 mile road trip from Utah to the Wash DC area. This was unlike any car trip I've ever made before. My wife and I took four days to make the journey. Due to Covid-19 threat we camped three nights in primitive sites and carried all our food and drink supplies with us. Our only retail interactions were with gas pumps every 500 miles. I offer special praise for truckers! They continue the business of moving goods and equipment across America at a rate that seems equal or greater than their normal volume.
  10. New allegations of extensive work place harassment levied on Washington's NFL team.
  11. I visited the Great Salt Lake today. The lake is not everyone's cup of tea, but after a bike ride on nearby roads I enjoy sitting in a beach chair with my toes in the water. There was a light breeze today and temps about 88 degs. It's not a bad substitute for a day at the ocean. SLC is 600 miles from the Pacific:-) I noticed my old NFL sticker on my car is splitting in half from the elements and appears to form the "no-mascots" symbol. I'm pulling for the new name to be the Washington Red Wolves so I can hear 70,000 fans howl like a wolf when we score a touchdown.
  12. My buddy next to me is a member of the cult. He grew up in CT, then moved south. He's an excellent skier and also still plays rec league hockey at age 60. BTW, that photo is from a few years ago at Timberline, WV, the place that was recently bought by Perfect North and is being resurrected this summer with new lifts, new snowmaking and lots of repairs after old owners went bust and did not open last winter. Pretty good mountain and fairly snowy for the Mid-Atlantic.
  13. I think the 2016 poll was conducted by the Wash Post, but cited in the 2020 Wash Examiner article. The Post is about as far left as the Examiner is far right. I take both of them with a grain of salt.
