I know I literally just started pushing myself to start trying Miller Flips/hand plants/and stale fish.... was feeling turbo charged with the whole season under my belt and really had my focus set on nailing those tricks now that we finally got a big giant hip/quarter pipe that's nice. Nothing like sun and soft corn to eat shit on over and over lol.. ah well... I'll wait til next year.

You must have a high pain tolerance though, remember seeing your post about thinking you "might" have broken your arm...then it turns out to be in 30 pieces.
haha yeah dude, the dreams were nuts! and painful and scary.. lol felt like the pain I really was feeling in my arm was being intensified in my dream. Plus I was trippin.

Pretty sure I have a high pain tolerance too now that I think of it.. since I tried to convince everyone my neck slipped a disk when it was really broken in two places 2 winters ago (C2, C6) haha... I just like to be in denial about getting broke off.. and I deff don't like thinking people can see I'm in pain... at least not that bad of pain. I drove up alone the day I broke my arm, so I sat in the lodge and did a couple shots of Jameson till someone could give me a ride. It's all good tho.



Hey wanna see my scar!!!
Took this today first time seeing it. Now I'm in a crazy full arm hinged brace,

lol you'll be fine Donuts.. just don't send shit big when you haven't seen the landing without talking to a person who knows first. I saw a skier I wasn't with send it so deep, thought I was in the clear. Big mistake. I know better. but 6" and sun makes everything so tempting!!! I love it!

Dr. Howard Richter @Colton-Harrison Clinic he's been an olympic physician and moved out here to work more with ski/snowboard injuries. He called my mom while I was in surgery being stitched up and shot the shit with me in my hospital room a couple times. I thought he was great.

You probably dodged a bullet with the broken neck. While it's scarier/riskier to break your neck, at least it heals up no problem and you're good to go after. Slipped disk is no bueno. You sometimes deal with that for life.
