A friend was telling me about a man he knew who was 42 years old, a real outdoors person who had gone with his girlfriend to go mountain biking. He hauled the bikes to the trail head in the back of the pick up. He handed down his girlfriends bike to her and then decided he would ride his bike down a plank that led off the back of the truck. As he hit the plank, it slid off the tailgate and he fell, breaking his neck which resulted in his death.
I know this is the kind of thing that I might have done and wanted to share it with the group to remind everyone of how some of these "cool" ideas may be very dangerous.
Let's all try to learn from his lesson since he paid an awful high price for the mistake.
