The Hero Cam, Skiing at Big Sky & Cute Guy Max



The most common question that we get asked is “what do you do in the winter?” What do you DO?? Well, there’s always some kind of work to do- always something we can do to plan for next season, learn from last season or improve on some level. But it’s work. The boring kind. And that’s not what we’re here to talk about. What you really want to see is photos of Becca (office ‘04-‘05) and I shredding the pow at Big Sky yesterday. It was SICK! And I had my new Hero Camera – it’s the coolest! Actually, I will give the full review when I get the phots developed (yes kids, the ol fashioned way! You have to wait). But we are very excited about the Hero Camera. It’s a small, reusable water proof camera (retail $20) that straps to your wrist so you can get those Action Shots! We already ordered a case to sell at MWW, hopefully discouraging purchase of those nasty disposable cameras (retail $15) that clog the landfills with all the other disposable JUNK that we buy…
Anyways, Skiing with the Hero Cam was fun, if only to be able to say “Hero Cam Me!” or “You’re on Hero Cam!”. Hopefully the pics will turn out great and we can confidently offer this camera to the do it yourself photographer rafters at MWW this summer…

Did I mention that the guy who invented the Hero Cam is totally Cute?

Speaking of totally cute, while at Big Sky, we got to run into one of our favorite totally cute raft guides, Max Stevens - check him out on our staff page (Yellowstone ‘04, Gallatin ’05). It’s hard to convince such a totally brilliant guy that he needs to be a raft guide for the rest of his life but I try every time. This kid is just such a total gem that I can’t help myself. I don’t want to see his beauty, sense of humor and lively sparkle drain out of his being and swirl down the pipes at some laboratory at some corporation in some heartless concreteland. There’s just something about being outside and having fun that gives people that sparkle that makes them totally cute. So what if he has the brains to develop that crazy equation that might save the world- he’s too cute for that!

So I've been searching around looking at blogs because I want to start one at my site ( golf schools ). But I'm not sure how I want to go.... blogger, wordpress, drupal... not sure, and I don't know that much about them. I like the look of this site. If you have time could you email me what you like/dislike about your blog? Thank you if you decide to take the time to help me out, and I understand if you don't. Ultimately I want it to look good with being "hands off" as much as possible. Anyway, keep up the good work.
