I Read Books

So I am on a recent ski trip with my buddy Tim. As is usual custom, Tim wants to quote or describe his laundry list of philosphical reading and asks over and over, "Have you read so and so?" No, dude, I have kids.

I need books with lots of pictures. I read more philosphical writings of Elmo and Big Bird than anything. So when my buddy Matt at The Ski Journal sent me their new hardback Frequency-The Snowboarders Journal book, I was stoked. Massive Big Mountain photos. Yeah it is snowboarders, but when you are hitting 55 degree slopes, it is awesome whether you are on skis, a snowboard, an old inner tube, rollerskates... whatever. Pictures are good. Especially pictures of big mountain skiing and snowboarding. The articles are great reads too, but the pictures... The hardback is just beyond awesome and the magazines are perfect for the coffee table as a conversation piece.

I am adding a link to Frequency over on the side next to the Ski Journal and both are worth checking out. They have an editor and staff blog for both and both are awesome reads.

Dude! I almost rolled out of my chair laughing at this post! My wife and I live in Ridgway, CO, and being 37miles from world class skiing in Telluride is like a sick joke when getting there once a month is a huge feet for parents with little kids. Our kids are 3 and 1 this month, so even getting there at all is pretty amazing! I know Elmo's philosophy well, second only to Thomas The Tank Engine. But hey...those guys are pretty deep! Have fun and stop by Life In Ridgway sometime.

The Frequency book is impressive. A friend of mine had a copy and now I know I need to try and find one for myself.
