Just wonderin' exactly what it is I have to look forward to as my skills progress! (...don't really see myself ever doing any "Park" stuff. Maybe some pipe if my skills allow! but no rails or boxes I don't think)

...that immature deal only works for the "Mind"! The "Body" is still OLD!! (I swear, Gravity sucks you into the earth a lot harder, and with a Lot less "bounce" after 40!!)
My injuries have been everything and anything in between. Speared myself on a tree that's what chipped my hip, improperly cut half pipe took out my spleen, elbow was me just getting too gnarly for my own good in the terrain park on a jump, caught edges, rock slams in powder, etc. etc. etc. Risk vs Reward.
