    Nice solo work! To bad you’re having trouble getting soldiers. That kinda of mission is fully in my area of stoke.

    Trippin – where are you located? I’d love to link up with you for some missions. I’m kinda disappointed with the folks that live in Bend. Lots of people that wanna go hike the cone and skin tumalo but not too many that want to go far and ride hard. I thought Bend was full of crushers :scratch:

    I asked everyone that I knew in town at the time. A couple folks from mountain supply, a couple guys from this site, several folks in the parking lot. Since then I’ve met a dude named Rex who is definitely a crusher and not included in that statement. Are you in Bend?

    Not everybody has the luxury to roam free at 22 without a job. Talking shit like that isn’t going to help your cause.

    We toured that zone last December (and I hosted as well). I thought you knew my handle on this site. No worries about that. Your comment isn’t very classy and disrespects our scene and the hospitality that’s been extended to you. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that you were typing drunk and were trying to make funny, but still…

    Here’s the thing about disappointment; it’s the product of expectations. Passing judgment just pisses people off. I’m sure Yoda would say that more profoundly and with more tact but there you go. :soapbox:

    Splitinbend is on target with folks not being able to drop their plans to accommodate your’s on a whim.

    We’re a jolly crew here :drinks: … to a point, beyond that :shit:

    Oops, sorry guys! Wow i’m super embarrassed, I wasn’t referring to folks that had real responsibilities to take care of such as yourself Splitinbend, I was talking about some other folks I contacted that specifically said they didn’t want to walk that far. No insult intended! Same goes for you Stuka, didn’t know your handle on the site. Tried to get ahold of you to tour. My bad, Won’t happen again. You guys are the best, seriously. I’m immensely grateful for the hospitality you guys have extended. When I brag about how amazing the splitboard community you guys are main examples. I’ve got nothing but respect for you two! I was just trying to poke a bit of fun at the guys that didn’t want to walk far. I’ll think before I speak next time. Cheers :drinks:

    Thanks for clearing things up. I didn’t understand your comment and reacted a bit. Sorry for my part in sending your thread sideways.

    Good work getting out there and getting it. Broken Top’s a big approach and exit but worth it under good conditions which it looks like you got.

    I think that was the most “heated” thread I’ve ever read from peeps from OR…I’m glad it got back to normal.

    I may just have to come out to the April splitfest in OR and arm wrassle some of you scrappy lads. :rock: If I can get past the beards and crushingly loud DOOM music!

    Been looking forward to meeting some OR peeps. I love that state!

    I mean where else but OR has a DaKine factory, a Tofurkey factory and a brewery on the same street!

    Zac called me to personally address the original comments. I want to say I’m impressed by the way he responded and apologized. Fortunately we have a good collective here and with that comes people that have good advice and support instead of public flaming. Keep the stoke, be safe and shred on. When all you have for strangers is your word, have integrity. Cheers.

    I truly enjoyed reading this thread. I like seeing people getting fired up like this because it shows which of us are real, truly want to work for the goods and take pride in taking things to the next level. It puts in perspective how many people want to act like they are into the “back country scene”. Credit Card Splitters I call ’em. They watch a JJ flick, buy a split and a pack, want to only do an easy tour for 15 minutes, then think they should be bombing down wide open pow fields that drop them back at their truck. The guys that really put in the work, tour and climb for hours in the dark, carry the heavy packs, and want to earn it are few and far in-between. So cheers to Earnyourturns, Splitinbend, and Stuka for keeping the standards high and holding us accountable. Stay tight and continue to network with each other. If San Diego would get more snow, I would love to host all y’all down here!
