This is it I have come to the conclusion that the only way I am going to win a Mt Ruapehu Ultimate Platinum Pass is to sell my most prized possessions.

These of course are my 68 old snowboards.

You have to understand that this is not what a normal person collects (actually do normal people have collections of things). Anyway I have some snowboards which are quite old I don't have a list of how many or what they are, as it is on my other list of things to do which I have not done yet.

As I was saying I have these old snowboards been collecting them for a little while and they really are taking up too much space in the garage. Girlfriend also thinks we could better use the space for gardening stuff!

Personally I find them very therapeutic in the middle of summer, when I can sit in my garage for hours and look at the boards with a cold beer and pretend that I am up the mountain on a spring day sitting on the Giant cafe deck watching the day go by after a hike to the majestic summit of Mt Ruapehu. (have you been up there yet?)

However some of you may want to line your club lounge walls with them, great idea as long as the old skiers don't burn them first.

I can also throw in some very special retro snow gear to complement the boards for the Annual Mt Ruapheu Retro Day. You can also bring all your mates now that you will have all these other retro boards. Totally awesome dude like tubular!

See selected non in-criminating pictures for a taste of the one and only real auction that deserves to win a Mt Ruapehu Season and Ultimate Pass.

Why do I need a Platinum pass well as you get older after a few apres at the local, you find that getting up early is not as good as it used to be. Especially if the crew talk you into just one more drink! So to ensure that this season we can leave at 8am be at the top by 8.30am and walk to the lift to get to the famous Ruapehu Powder I have to have the Platinum pass.
