A thanks to all who placed comments, it seems my blog is what I had hoped it was. There is no issue having people, like Jim, express their opinions. We all have our own ideas, and these should be respected. But from all your answers I gathered that I am on the right track, Jim might not believe so but the rest of you do.
Today I was out in the mountains, alone. Alone and comfortable. People have asked me before how I can go out and ski alone and I have had issues answering the question. But when you spend enough time in the mountains, learning its cycles, understanding the physics of snow; you can become comfortable out here.Its not that my “false” confidence is so strong that I feel invincible, its that I know I can rely on myself. Complete self reliance. Being out there today alone, skiing steep tree lines with deep powder, and small cliffs, I cannot let my guard down. All actions must be planned, no misteps or poor decisions allowed.
There is a freedom to skiing alone, do what you want when you want. No questions, no deliberating just personal decisions. The is no doubt that if something happens you may be Fu&^$#, but that is something that I will do everything to avoid.
Again I do not feel like I have explained anything but I know how great it feels to spend all day skiing powder all by my lonesome self.
