I am now a married Asian male addicted to retail, and well… I bought a pair of new skis after buying a new snowboard yesterday. I copped a pair of 2023 Fischer RC Fire SLR Pro Skis (155cm) with RS 9 SLR Bindings for $202.50 (55% off original price). I love skiing as much as snowboarding; therefore, I might as well enjoy a new toy. As much as I love my two used pairs released in 2008, I need to retire them. They served me well. They accompanied me from the bunny slopes to the double black diamonds. It’s time for me to move on. It looks like I am going to keep skiing and snowboarding for many years to come; therefore, I should invest in my equipments. I hope this is going to a snowy winter. The last two years, particular last year, was pathetic. We didn’t even have a snowday. I am so done with this hotter-than-hell summer.
