Safety 3rd!! alirte nice work if ya made it this far, nuff chest thumpin (no thumper smiley??…. :bananas: :bananas: :bananas: close nuff), heres sum candy fer dessert, peepin thru the cracks… in the shutters i mean Peas out!! never summer snowboards phantom splitboard bindings dynafit touring atomic boots April 14, 2011 at 4:20 pm #639403 barrows 1490 Posts Thanks Mark.
