    I am plying the Atlantic Ocean on board a vessel called San Sebastián captained by Antonio de Iturribalzaga heading to Terranova . Taking advantage the northeast winds, we already are sailing toward the 60º parallel under full sail . Our mission in this trip is the cod fishing although also we are learning new words in the Algonquian–Basque language .

    I'm retracing the Doug Coombs steps in La Grave, vallons de la Meije (( France )) with Robert Cocuzzo . I already got my skis on, that is, the fat with more rocker and we are ready to ski the Trifide's couloirs . Yesterday we had a meeting with Pelle Lång, we talked about the enthusiastic personality of Doug - always upbeat-, also about his perfect turns at remarkable speeds, his sense of the perfect line and some conversations with him about Jackson Hole and Valdez'92 . In fact, he told us that Doug decided moving to La Grave for 2 reasons . First, cause he had found the same « wild & steep skiing » like in his memories in Valdez . Second, by his strongh admiration to Patrick Vallençant and Pierre Tardivel . (( Btw, Doug met both ))

    I am with Piero Ghiglione and Ottorino Mezzalama in a long skiing trip from Cervinia to Gressoney (( il sentiero del Duemila )) . Both are teaching me « timeless things » about their modified ski gear and other skiing skills . Piero has invented something similar to Twintip skis, he calls it « attrezzi a doppia spatola » he says this will be very useful for the Telemark skiing . He doesn't still know it...Freestyle, rather

    I'm going from book signing to book signing doing the odd spot of gardening in between.
    O and there's wine, a lot of wine.
