Well, with the snowshoe bug having bitten pretty hard I started scouring the net to feed a possible addiction in its infancy. Luckily for me, there are no shortages of places that sell sweet snowshoes on the net. Now the problem was lack of fundalation. Solution: sell shit I don't need. Mission accomplished as I quickly sold a race car bucket seat that I'd bought way back in a former life when I had visions of tearing up the asphalt in my gas powered beast.
So, flush with a little cash, I'm now left in a bit of a conundrum. Do I go ahead and buy the shoes, assuming that I'll be able to get a bit more use yet this season and then hang them up until next year? Or, do I hold the cash for another purchase I've been eyeballing/needing for the upcoming MTB season? I'm sure I could rent or borrow some snowshoes to get me through a couple more outings this year, but I'm the type that prefers having my own equipment once I'm pretty certain that I be using it more than once or twice. I'm thinking I probably should grab onto the new bike shoes (I'll need them this year for sure) and wait until the snowshoes hopefully go on clearance at the end of the season and get them at that point where I'd be closer to paying for both with the proceeds from just the seat. Hmm, decisions decisions. So what are your opinions?
