We picked up three pairs of skis at the side of the road, figuring we'd sell them on Craiglist. This is the text of the Craiglist posting:
We have three pairs of skis (with bindings!), and one set of poles (you can never have too many poles!) They are in admittedly fair to poor condition, but a low commitment item, great for "emergency backup" skis - for all those times you don't want to ruin your good skis - or for a new abstract art project, or some other devious purpose.Hopefully we'll get rid of them at an infinite profit, and who knows - perhaps we'll see some exciting new stupid people on skis videos on YouTube soon.
