Issue 189 - The One With The Patented Ballpark Pouch
Rain kinda sucks...it rained all last week... no offence to those who live in Vancouver/Seattle and love that sort of thing. It's a bit too slushy and muddy right now for any sort of fun on the trails

On Friday we asked, "What's your winter thing?" and, wow, do we have a diverse TDT crowd! See the results here. If you feel inspired, you can leave a comment.
Après your winter activities, what is your beverage of choice?
Rain kinda sucks...it rained all last week... no offence to those who live in Vancouver/Seattle and love that sort of thing.

I know there were five TDT peeps from Friday's poll that said they don't like winter. Well, I guess global warming might be a good thing for you folks (flooding and wild fires aside). Athlete-environmentalists have been around for a while but their voices are getting louder and more urgent, especially as wildfires, avalanches, hurricanes, and other catastrophes make the climate crisis clearer... putting climbing, skiing, and surfing at risk.

Ok, I'm just going to come out with it and I'm not afraid to say it... "I'm a climbing noob".
