Do a search in the google rsn archives for Rode. There were a...

Norwegians: Hotbed of Skiing?

I wonder if those stats include walking around once or many times a day
as part of daily life is included. While we wouldn't think of these
people as active, they are getting some of the benefits of...

This happened at the American Birkie last weekend, when Babikov had to

Best Cold Weather Kick Wax

Forgot to mention that Rode waxes run much colder than the cannister or
site chart show. For example, their Multigrade blue/green (-3/-7C) runs
well in the low teens and Super Blue is worth testing...

Yes, that's the problem with these sorts of population-based

all sports, but would have to include golf - and maybe repairing...

It was a very large group until for a long time, but that regathering

This one actually streamed well this morning at

9k.

The area was bare ground around man-made or cargoed-in snow in warm

I'm not clear what that Protector Gerlach mentions is, but it sounds
like it's meant to be a solution to snow build up around the spring.

Maybe, but since you didn't specify the problem(s) your friends are/were
having, it's hard to know how seriously to take the rest. Were the
bindings well lubricated?

Good ideas. One of the work ID clips with the retractable cord hooked

eBay is that switching is not likely, since it's just too...
