Showing up in the New Moon monthly newsletters
Here's how you get in the New Moon newsletter. Call up Joel at New Moon, tell him you need *everything*, know nothing, but have a credit card. Proceed to buy lots of stuff. Then break poles. Order more poles. Break more poles. Buy more poles. Get more stuff. Break body and decide to get roller skis with air in tires -- that's $450. Etc. Easy to make friends this way.
