Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Status update – Going on Auto-Pilot Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 15 total) Author Posts December 30, 2014 at 4:16 pm #776386 splitboard.com 78 Posts Hi Splitters, Just wanted to provide a little insight on the site status and some issues I’m facing. As much as I try to keep my personal life private I feel like you need to know that I’m in a really bad place in my life right now. I’m currently going through a separation and divorce from the mother of my children and wife of 19 years. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through and it’s going to take time for me to heal. I know there’s a lot of things that need to be done with the site but I just can’t get to them right now. The site isn’t the reason for our martial issues but in hindsight the amount of time I’ve spent on it over the years could have been better severed on our relationship and it’s definitely taken a toll. I need to focus on what’s most important in my life, my family and my own health. So with that, please continue to make the most of this awesome place we’ve created and I hope to see you all on the other side soon.

Thank you for all you’ve put into this place. We all appreciate it! After much research, experimentation and consideration, I have decided adulthood is not for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

Thank you for contributing to the enrichment my existence through the creation of this community. That may sound a bit dramatic, but beyond just riding; splitboarding has provided me an avenue to more profound personal aims and progression of self. So for me the resource has helped in ways that extend beyond just riding a snowboard out of bounds.

You’ve done an amazing thing here, so take care of what you gotta do and regain happiness and a piece of mind. Personal/Life struggles are a real sucky place to be in. Onward and upward brother…… We all wish you quick and safe healing! Much Love Buddy! Ron January 2, 2015 at 1:58 pm #776712 Killclimbz 1165 Posts I’ve been MIA. Sorry to hear this. I know you have worked hard to make it work. If you decide to come out for SIA this year, you still have a place to stay. Perhaps it would be better to make it more about splitting and afternoon visits to the show. Hint, hint… January 2, 2015 at 5:24 pm #776729 spicoli11 288 Posts Sorry to hear that Chris. I’m sure it will get better with time. Your always welcome here in washington! We got an old dudes touring group going. We drink hot tea and take breaks.

I’m sure it will work out for all involved, in due time. If it ever snows in Tahoe again, hit me up and let’s do some shreddin’. You know, to keep your head on straight.

It was in the mountains and talking about the mountains here that helped me find some solace. The mountains can heal, I know. Your dedication to this site and this sport is bigger than you know. Let it return the favor! Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 15 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
