Since everyone is into glaciers and dollars as of late, I thought I'd post another ridiculous poll. See, I've been to Lake Louise, as well as Alaska. I've also been to Whistler, BC, as well as Alaska. The reason for not denoting exactly where I've been in Alaska is what it is. The fucking place is no-man's-land...it all looks the same after 3 plane rides. Every person you run into is telling you about how something might kill you.

Don't get me wrong, Banff has the breathtaking mountains and shit, but noone there tells you to fear for your life. Forget about Whistler...A-basin makes that place look like a bunny hill!!

So.....who ya got???

Thing is, if I want to go to Whistler, I can be there within a few hours. Actually I've never been there, because I don't ski

(Someone tell me where the fuck I can find size 15 ski boots and I might consider it)

Alaska's a bit further. Technically I'm probably halfway to Juneau if I drive to the north end of Vancouver Island, but you can't drive the rest of the way - that's the problem. There's a ferry that gets there from some point, or you could always fly in, but what good is Alaska if you can't drive around and look at shit.

Dude!
So this is serious? Size 15...
Franksters and a cousin of mine are 6'4" and they don't eaven wear that!

Wow! Seems like you could do lots of Chimpeachment all by yourself!



As for the boots... I've never seen it (never looked for it either).
I assume you'd have to pay top $$$ for custom made ones?

But there is hope for you. What used to be called "big and tall" is slowly becoming the norm... you'll be able to find more stuff in regular stores but it might take a while.

For that, you'll have to thank all the hormones in the food we eat! (I.M.O.)

I live just south of Yellowstone National Park and Teton National Park. I'm driving home and this idiot is trying to get his daughter to stand next to a bull moose so she can have her picture taken with it. I'm constantly telling people don't get too close to that moose or that bison is going to ram your fucking ass! Not to mention the bears are on a rampage since the drought has ruined their regular food supply this year and they are trying to tank up for the winter's hybernation.

You don't have to be in Alaska to get killed by a bear. We had one in our yard this summer.

Dude...with size 15's you won't need skis..

Honestly...I do not think you would have a problem.
I know alot of people with 13's...I would be surprised if they did not have any 15's...someone has got to make them.


I love the mountains...I could spend weeks camping out there.
The hot spring pools are awesome...I have never been so relaxed!

Alaska is too far away for me...

I plan to make it to Alaska, parts of Canada, Iceland, and Norway and the gang before I die. I'm all about the cold Northern wilderness.

Now THAT one was too easy and predictable!


Back when I was a child, the guys used to do what we called "Ski Bottines"... French for "Boots Skiing"...

On a icy/slushy day, they would tag along the back of a bus or truck and get carried, sliding on the street... pretty dangerous.

The kind of shit your mother will whip your ass for doing!

See thing is, Canada is beautiful.

Canada is gorgeous.

Canada is splendid.

The ONLY problem I can see with Canada, is it contains Canadians.

Solve that issue, and you've got Heaven on Earth.

By that logic, you'd pick Detroit over Toronto....

Waco over Vancouver......

All of New Jersey over Calgary....


My question is this, other than Waco, have you ever been to any of the above mentioned locales??

If I told you Canada has great strip-clubs, I bet you'd high-tail it up there...

Alaska is one of the cuntries on my trip list, along with Australia.

Canada? Afterwards.

So, Alaska it is.

I bet they have penguins and shit up there. And caribous, along with giant tundra sharks.

Cheers! :bottle:

I have been to detroit, It wasn't bad. Alaska wins period. Im not saying I would never go to canada either. No one ever said this was about where you would want to go, judging by the title of the thread it would be anything from a war to a chess tournement.

It's scary. I was visiting some friends outside of Anchorage a few years back, and probably almost died one morning. This really loud noise kept waking me up....it sounded like Paul Bunyan was beating on trees. I walked out into the 500 mile backyard to see what the hell was going on. It was like barely daylight, and I could almost see some movement a couple hundred yards away. I got close enough to see this 20-foot tall moose rampaging around, with bloody stuff hanging off his antlers. I fucking hauled ass back to the safehouse. After telling a few people what I had just seen, they told me that I was lucky to be alive.

So...

Let's send us all to (pollution at it's best)... WALT DISNEY WORLD!!!
Although, we don't really suffer from MORBID OBESITY, some uf us would need an EXTREME MAKE OVER.
One thing for sure, we could all use a vacation in the "SURVOVORS" studios, unless we're more into that "CHEATING ISLAND" thing...

We already shiped CÚline Dion in Vegas for a while but she's supposed to come back when she's comfortable with her cash flow...

Don't worry, we'll visit!, RE; "The U-S Dollar" thread... ;)

Was it about this time of year when you saw him?

If so, you saw a horny, pissed off moose who is only thinking two things:

1) I want to kill something.
2) I need to get laid.

And since you aren't a female moose, guess which option that would leave.

Deer have similar behavior. a few years ago, a friend of mine was doing a vision quest ceremony in her own back yard around mid-October. We heard this noise that sounded like someone chopping down a tree, which of course would make no sense at all in total darkness. Someone aimed a flashlight into the back field and saw a group of deer with the bucks going at it hardcore. What you heard was them cracking skulls!!

We didn't bother them and they didn't bother us, but it was a freaky thing to watch all the same. Kinda wish I would have had some night vision goggles so I could have seen more without disturbing them.

I know this girl who was 7 months pregnant. She was a passenger in that car on the freeway, along with her husband and her 2 parents.

They hit a moose (or the moose hit them), all of them died, except for her and the baby...

I fear those monsters like it's the Devil!

It was more like mid October, and I've been de-briefed about the Moose rut. The fucking bloody velvet hanging from his head just flipped me out...I was focused more on Satanic Alaska than animal behavior. Hangover...paranoia. I knew what was up after I had a cup of coffee. The almost dying didn't stop there.

The main reason for me being there was early season powder. An old surfing buddy of mine talked me into it. Anyway, this quest for early season powder involved lots of hiking. Loosely organized to say the least. After a slight binding malfunction that occured just below treeline, I found myself separated from the group. It's fresh powder...I wouldn't have stopped either. Long story shorter, I finally saw the specs on the horizon as I exited this kick-ass glade. They were congregated at the bottom of a bowl it fed into. Everyone was like, "did you miss the chute?" I was like "yeah, my binding fucked up...y'all had hauled ass, so I hit those trees." That's when they pointed to the small canyon adjacent to the trees....think like 800 feet down along the fall line. You guessed it, they told me I was lucky I didn't die.

Luckiliy, neither you nor the moose were drunk.

Just imagine: you're completely wasted, running around with a pair of fake antlers and making weird sounds, believing it to be the funniest thing in the whole world. We've all done it, at one point or another.

But then there's the moose: a raging, horny, drunken moose.

Death would be a bliss.

Cheers! :bottle:

That's not moose behaviour. I feel that way all the time.

Not necessarily in that order, though.
