Things I've learned and done on skinny skis since taking it up in 1984 at the advanced age of 27
Heh, yeah :-)I prefer light and fast over loaded and slow. But even when loaded I prefer fast because loaded is so heavy and I want it off of my back ASAP!
Kind of typical scenario: I carry all the weight, wife carries only a little. She tells me: "Slow down, enjoy the scenery." But I'm the one carrying the big pack and I want to get to the destination.
It's just how they show up here...Arctic garb and trudging under expedition packs to toddle out a few Ks while the racers stick a Power Bar in the sleeve of their Lycra suit to bring them in from the far reaches of the universe.
