Now...my VENT. My fucking dude is on the lame track...First of all, we had to haul a trailer 400 miles overnight and in snow, do you know he couldn't drive the trailer! I drove the whole fucking way. About 5 hours in I was tired, so we pulled over to switch, he's never hauled a trailer before, and it was raining, but we were heading in to snow, so there was pretty much ice on the ground and it was super windy. I told him, don't take it over 45 right now, especially since you've never driven one before and it's windy and icy. Do you know he fucking takes it up to 65 in a matter of a minute, that trailer started swinging around like a fucking limp dick back there. I made him pull over and I had to drive the rest of the fucking way.
Sunday we had a great day riding June, great pow and great tree runs. End of the day we need to take a gnarly ungroomed double back to the parking lot (June's set up different, the steepest double is at the bottom). Anyway, we take some pictures and then cruise over to the edge to strap in and there is a fucking lip and some fuuucking intimidating shit. I'm thinking, well, i'm getting the "oh shits" time to strap in, turn on some Tom Petty won't back down for musical encouragement and let it ride. We check it out, i said it's best if i lead, that way if some shit goes down, you'll be able to get down to help me. Agreed. We stand up, we've both got our masks on now, so i give him the thumbs up saying i'm ready are you? he thumbs ups me back and i drop in. Do you know i tumbled, skid backwards head first, bounced around like a fucking ping pong ball, a couple times at this point. I'm looking back for him...HE STILL HASN'T DROPPED IN!!!
I fucking tumble my ass pretty much the whole way down, not until i get to the bottom does he finally emerge behind me. I said "dude what the fuck happened???" He tells me "i didn't know where to drop in, i was trying to figure it out". We talked about it some more this week, he finally admitted that he was scared. Damn, i was fucking scared too but if i drop in and you bitch out, i can't trust you to be there for me in a dangerous situation! He was nowhere to be found for about 10 minutes, meanwhile i'm playing brickbreaker with the mountain the whole way down!
Am I wrong?
Been needing to vent that shit for a while...feel better already.
God I love this epic thread...
