Robb was great - didn't berate me once (out loud, anyway). I'm sure it's just the thing he wanted to do, stand around in subzero therms while I repeatedly tried to rejuvenate my skins. 200 vertical feet, fail, rejuvenate 100 vert fail, and so on until it was futile. Thanks to my skin ineptitude, we made it almost to timber line, big day. As I blog this, freshly added glue is curing on my skins. One too many trips before reapplying the glue.
It was good to ski with Robb, even with my double skin failure frustrations. Always amazed at Robb's ability - even just after rehabbing a four fracture foot/ankle/tibia/fibia problem. Fixed-heel me couldn't keep up with free-heeled Robb on the descent.
