Nice one JP!
Looks like you guys found still some surprisingly good snow.

But hey what's up with the guns??
You guys need to protect yourselves from bears or something?

What was I thinking?! OK, let me try again.
"Oh, yeah! Beer, guns, snowmachines and fresh tracks."
Your right, that's what was missing. :wink:
I've been doing well with the first part, but am a little out of practice with the last two...forgive me.

What's the gun for? Bears??

Call it a cultural difference. But that just freaks me out.

I have a different back country nature agenda to guns.

Why the gun? I don't think it was ever going to happen, but I wont ever be touring with anyone that carries a pistol into the back country. A pistol designed for killing people. For a guy like me that didn't grow up in a gun region (eg, America, Middle East, Africa), its just totally wrong. I handled weapons for years in the Army, but still... no way.

Thanks for sharing what you like. Its good to see what's in the hearts of the "We know snow" crew. Are you guys sponsored by outdoors companies? Do they know about your gun thing? Do you carry a gun when spitting or is it just luggage for the 'bile?

Sorry for speaking my mind so bluntly.

not really sure where to go with this one but if you have a problem with it then don't read my threads. i have served my country and have a right to buy, carry and use a gun. i don't question why you carry some piece of gear into the backcountry.

i guess you've seen what lies in the hearts of the "we know snow" crew, but you really should see peoples faces when they stumble into our stashes and i'm cleaning the kimber 45.

looks like we won't be touring together.

this thread makes me want to get my concealed carry permit. damn

I don't own a gun, but certain members of the Coastal Crest Snow Patrol carry. We ski in one of the remotest areas in the lower 48. Large packs of coyotes, lots of bears and you never know when you will come across some crazy redneck - all of them are packin' for sure.

I would love to get a gun. Most of the time I'm skiing by myself. I'll tell you a little story.
Now I know that picking up strangers is not wise, but several years ago I was driving down the M1 just below Boardman Ridge at Hull Mt. Just another weekly solo adventure. I see this guy walking down the road. In the back of my mind, I was telling myself to keep driving. But he was thumbing for a ride. If I needed a ride on that lonely road, I sure hope someone would pick me up. Right? This whole time his left hand is stuck in the pocket of his jacket. As he walks around the front of the Jeep and opens the passenger door, his left hand still hasn't come out of his pocket.
My eyes are glued to his pocketed left hand and my foot is twitching on the gas peddle...

Not ever questioning anyone's right to do as they want, especially in their own country. Just reeling in shock a little bit - like I said, its a cultural thing. I didn't expect to see a gun in a TR about BC touring. Nor am I questioning the status quo of gun ownership in the US. I only point out that in some parts of the world what is considered normal in country A is at the same time seen as pretty unexpected and strange in country B.

Like you suggested - just don't look in your threads if I don't wanna see violent weapons. Fair call.
