My wife heads out of town for 17 days and look what happens.
You wanna see what good web marketing looks like, go ahead and go to Tramdock.com. They take one item at at a time and sell it at at least half price for 25 minutes. Then they rotate in a new item. That’s like floating a wounded minnow in front of giant lake trout. It triggers a primordial response that the fish simply cannot suppress.
When I first saw these skis with the throwback ’80s graphics, I thought I could resist. But then I remembered the original pair of Dynastar Course I owned and the footloose and fancy-free era of my life they represented. (I skied on the original Course at my bachelor party, circa 1989!)
As the sale timer wound down to 2 minutes to go, that primordial response became irresistible. Then it was a mad rush to beat the clock.
As you can see, Tramdock got me hook, line and sinker, as they say. And I have removed their URL from my list of Favorites because I cannot be trusted with time-sensitive deals on gear this good.
But I cannot wait to try these fatties out on a powder day. More on that later.
