So are you hitting the gym? CrossFitting it? Looking for equipment deals? What are you doing to motivate?

I've been keeping up w/ my local CrossFit gym. Scored some equipment. And snuck in a longboard surf session at Tormaline La Jolla Beach SD, Cali on a bzns trip. Can't wait to get my splitboard up there ASAP.

I went to Saint Marys yesterday, first time in like 15 years. That place is like 6 flags nowadays complete with pay parking. Dirty snow and survival turns with about 500 of my closest friends. Splitboarding seems to be good training for splitboarding.

Lol yes! ^ Hoping to keep the dream alive myself at least one more day. Did you do the NFNWR???
Right now I just keep fit biking, push ups, pull ups. I'll start a weight training regiment written by Russman himself involving mostly lower body/core power lifting. I'm skinny as fuck as it is (5'9 140-145lbs). The last thing I need is crossfit or P90x for mountaineering. I need more bulk, power and calories to burn!

I have taken a liking to triathlons. They seem to help the entire body in staying fit. I also do a little bit of hiking / trail running. I am so ready for the white stuff to start falling though.

Working at a ski resort 6 days a week. By the time winter gets here it will be the last place I want to be.

Funny, also Russman prescribed.... One solid month of active rest and recovery!

And I'm overstating for a change with the use of the word 'active'. Not too hard to motivate to bar-b-q-ing and drinking beer.

I plan to not board from august 7th-first snow after fall euqinox...

As for actuall 'prepping'. maybe some climbing and rope work to get more profeciant. a little ice/seracccing at baker in the fall. reglue my skins. fix my boots. find a couple cheap boards and split them for next year. hike/scout for some cave locations. sew all my socks. set some caches. build a couple bc huts. catch and smoke a winters worth of salmon. grow/harvest and dehydrate a winters worth of veggies and mushrooms...Jerky! berrY season is going be super PHAT!!! this year! maybe make a bunch of huckleberry brandy.
.... i'm sure I'm missing some.

Good on ya for that. Can't tell you how many times my pals and I have tossed this idea around for certain spots around Bozeman, then get "distracted" by summer activities. Let me know if your ideas come to fruition...
