I'm very curious what my first time out is going to be like. I'll be honest, I'm more nervous than excited lol

If you come back to Holly, I'll keep the toboggan ready... just in case.

I'm sure you will be fine. You will probably have knee / neck pain from riding so stiff and worried the first time.

haha, thanks. While the ride down was luxurious, I think I'd like to never do that again

If I ever get around to buying my PK pass, I was pretty sure I was going to add the $150 Holly option. Dunno for sure if I should tho. I'd have to get out there, what? 6-7 times before it paid for itself?

I like Holly, but just not sure I'll get there anywhere near as often as I do PK. What do you think? (...just thinking out loud and looking for some rationalizations from the peanut gallery for spending the extra coin!)

On a side note: Sab, have you heard from Leo? Think he'll be making it out to the hills much this season?

I'll be riding.

I had to drop one of my classes. I was tanking bad. Rethinking this college thing. Never failed so hard in school before. I've always been told that Anatomy weeds the weak out. Well, I got weeded.

It's just not the same going back to school with kids and an older brain. My concentration sucks, memory is severely lacking, and just pure lack of interest in these subjects lately.

I need to ride. Huge stress reliever and takes my mind off shit. It's been a very rough year for me. I can't wait to be shredding with all of you again! I will admit that I pretty much lost all motivation to progress in the park. I pretty much gave up on jibbing last season. This season I don't even feel like hitting the jumps. But eh, that'll probably go away once I touch the snow

It's a low price already so no, I won't go lower. Even for buds

I told you school sucks. Probably the best thing you could do is get some certs in a few programming languages vb.net, asp.net, c#, etc. if nothing else I think it's relatively inexpensive to do these, there's a shitload of free resources online in addition to any formal classes you might pay for, and at the very least you could get some decent paying contract/temp gigs out of it that might turn in to something more permanent.

This can be remedied with one backyard jib session. We just need some snow.

Truthfully my man, I'm having a certain issue with Holly at the moment (unrelated to my accident lol) and I'm not sure how willing I am to ride there this season if they don't make a certain decision in my favor.

Vague, I know but as it stands I'm not planning on riding much at Holly unless something changes. Unless I get comp passes

I don't see me going to PK *at all* this season either. I really did not enjoy my time there last season. Shitty vibe. I didn't like the hill itself. It's farther. Too many better options for me.
