I was having coffee on my deck yesterday...

looking at the mountain that's right behind my house when all of a sudden a stream of life flight helis were overhead...

thoughts go out to the families.

yeah, man that sucked...

on the flip-side, we were amazed at the skill-set of the life flight chopper pilot. to watch him or her nose into that steep face and hover between a particular canyon wall was really impressive.

where abouts in slc are you at? trying to motivate to go to the bird today.

not sure what your budget is but there are some really well priced homes in the cove right now.

send the lib back, they are pretty good on returns-especially if it came unglued.

and yeah, the fucking bird... never got the place, but it keeps the season going. i regretted dropping the $280...then we got the twenty-four inches, rode with friends, got drunk, was stoked on the bird...woke-up and said, ''why the hell did buy a pass to bump-zilla?''
