Tales from the Hinterland: 2017/2018 edition

Well, I got first chair this morning:



May have to move it a bit before the lake effect piles up. Not the best angle. Anyways, it finally felt like winter up here, -14 C (7 F), sketchy driving last night and snow that has stuck around for more than a few hours.

The guns at Hidden Bump even got fired up today. We're liking the new guy (not my picture):



This thread is becoming quite the tradition, and I hope you all don't mind indulging us for another winter. If you are new to NYSB, this story has been going for a while. Here is your opportunity to catch up:

2011/12: lost for a few years, this season was recently rediscovered: Tales-from-the-Hinterland-winter-of-2011-2012
And, if I may, call your attention to a few separate and fun TRs from that season:
the Dog Day Ski Adventure
The Tour de Valley
and, SBR Has an Epiphany

Ask Harv, he put it there, as I recall.

I will rejoin him with his brothers in the TR forum when Zelda and I get home.

Excellent sleuthing, TD, I have edited the OP to reflect this discovery.

Harv, no need to move it, it is all linked up. But if you do, let me know and I will update the referral link in the OP.

I moved it.  There are many things that stink about Nabble but one good thing is that it doesn't matter if you move a post the URL doesn't change.
 
I know I am a bit rigid about TR rules. OK maybe more than a bit. While TFTH doesn't fit the format of a TR and does make sense in the Woodstove, ultimately I decided that a good moderator should do everything he/she can to encourage great content, promoting signal and discouraging noise.

The format thing in the TR forum is really to encourage quality and discourage BS. TFTH is awesome. I retain the right to move other stuff out of the TR forum for any reason, including format.

Now back to our regularly scheduled Hinterlandian programming.

Thanks for the links to the past threads!  Only started reading NYSkiBlog a few years ago so missed out on those.
