On a side note, I made it to Rustavi Georgia. Just south of Tbilisi. The road to Gudauri is snowed in so tomorrow I will put the KTM in the back of a pickup and make it to Gudauri. I met up with the guys from Team KTM Georgia and they are helping me out lots. Apparently we are going snow-biking on KTMs with tracks/skis tomorrow. I think this is going to be a very good winter here.

No idea. You sit him in the back of your car and his head bounces and wobbles about as you drive

I thought you were pretty cool before the " So I Married an Axe Murderer" reference. Now you are a few notches up. Thanks for the laugh man.

So...Slayer fan or not, Noah (or should I call you Kerry King)? I'm confused by all this mixed messaging.

Snow report.. begin :P

So.. I had an amazing day snowboarding today. Bought a season pass for about $300.


Fresh snow.. about foot of "blower pow". Blue-bird day. I am sore and happy now.

This place is not quite as big as BigSky or Baker but it would give Bachelor a run for its money. Also.. the lift lines are quick... but people in the lift lines merge like they drive. TOTAL SHITE FREE-FOR-ALL.

And this is the view from the top.

looks amazing. Went through snow towns in the Pyreneese a couple of years ago but it was the summer so no snow around.. Would of been nice to see it in the winter, was like a ghost town...i'll just have to imagine it looks like what you posted :)

At the advice of a friend, I started yesterday at Page 1 and read your ride report to date. What a great trip and ride report that you have let us follow Noah. Have fun and be safe boarding. I look forward to reading about your journey as it continues to unfold.
