Helping Dexter Rutecki on the lift.
The legend, not the maggot.
A brush with greatness:
A movie about the Afghanistan war is being shot at the ski area where I work, and since the areas above timberline apparently look like Afghanistan they're using the lifts to get the crew up and a few patrollers are working to help with the loading and in case there's a chair evacuation.
Anyway, the director played Dexter Rutecki in the classic Aspen Extreme. I haven't spoken to him other than to offload and load him on a chair, and didn't even really know about him playing that part in Aspen Extreme until I just now looked it up on imdb.com.
There are supposed to be a few more days of shooting, and if I get a chance I'm thinking of telling him how he changed my life. Mark Wahlberg is running around too, but measuring up to Dirk Diggler was never really in the cards.
Edited to 'splain better.

Wow, he directed "Very Bad Things" and "Hancock?" Didn't even realize that."Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks."

Hopefully the new film does the book justice. Really great book, if you're into war stories and stuff.

That's a real honor. You should definitely read it then - it's absolutely insane what he went through. My roommate (former air force) was part of the search team.

Lone survivor was an amazing book. Fucking gnarly shit went down and true heros (us and afghan) prevailed.
Should make for a good movie.

Meadow Skipper, you should probably give the explosives back.

Peter Berg has been directing films for quite some time--since 1997.
That said, he was responsible (or perhaps irresponsible) for Battleship..."Man, we killin' elephants in the back yard..."

On a side note, my sister was flying A-10 air support for Operation Red Wings and and the subsequent search, recovery, and rescue missions. From what she has shared with me, the missions were pretty intense.
