im a miser with a high pain tolerance, no way i was going to pack up and leave after just driving there then buying a lift ticket haha. Also, after having a few kidney stones, everyday aches and pains dont really hurt, just make me stiff.
+1 to the kidney stone! I still have my percocets from that experience. Saving them at the ready in case I feel another stone. That's the only time I ever called 911 in my life, I thought I was going into anaphylactic shock or something!
I've snowboarded with torn rotator cuffs, chest muscle bruises (hurts a wee bit), etc. just keep the advil flowing!
