    Huck and hope, and when in doubt straightline out.

    I like to take enough drugs to shut off my brain so it doesnt get in the way of my body.

    ^^^^Last Sunday I saw a grown man scooching down a green trail on his butt with skis and poles laid across his lap while his wife/girlfriend said, "oh come on, can't you at least walk down?" He had another 1k' of scooching ahead of him. It was both hilarious and sad. I'd be shocked if that dude ever put on a pair of skis again.

    That would be an accurate and succinct summary of my twenties.

    When you're the best skier on the mountain, there are no "tough trails". I can ski anything with my eyes closed. Honestly it is starting to bore me. This year, I had buddies throw snowballs at me while I descended, just so I could feel some sense of danger.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.
