Craziest and scariest day of my life!

so today was our last day of middle school! heck yes! and like 30 of my friends went out to a local park by us and we played soccer and volly ball and ordered pizzas and stuff right after school and it was great cuz there were no parents for once and everyone was having a great time. well a friend of mine, and i decided that we were getting kinda bored and we rode on the trails right after school to get to the park so we had our bikes and all our gear so we set out to find some jumps and well the only thing we found was pretty much a cliff. It was just taken over by roots and small rocks and there were ledges everywhere. it was only about 20 or 25 feet up but it was a very very steep incline and we both had to help each other out carrying the bikes up over our backs. well i still dont know why we did it but it was probably because everyone was watching and we couldnt wimp out so we both went for it, and i decided to go first. It was, the most, FUNNEST FRICKIN THING I HAVE EVER DONE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! omg i was so adrenaline pumped it was crazy. we figured that if we fell on it then it wouldnt be too bad because it wasnt that far down the hill and there wasnt anything too dangerous execpt for the fact that about after 10 feet after the bottom there was a old metal railing with jagged rocks on the other side of it and about a 4 foot drop into a big creek. when i was done i slammed on both brakes and slid right into the railing and almost took the raling with me but i was ok, and my friend braked most of the way down and took it as easy as he could. its was so great.
so right after getting some water and having our pats on the back we decided wed go for some other jumps and stuff and after warming up agian from taking 3 picknick tables and putting them next to each other and just riding off them and bunny hoping on the end which we got a few other kids with bmx bikes to try, we leaned a picknick table up on the roof of the rest area thing, it was a pretty old spot but it was short and the picnic table fit perfectly
so we helped get the bikes up, and up about 15 feet we went agian ontop of the roof. lol wow if you could just imagine how that might feel looking down at the ground from up there on a bike. this time my friend went first and it wasnt to bad of an incline on the roof but the picnic table had a big incline, he rode down it and then right befor he hit the ground he poped a wheelie and landing perfectly paralell to the ground. next i went and same thing perfect, exept my fork made a wierd noise? im a gonna go out and check on it and inspect it in a bit, but we were both ok and we didnt die and i was amazed because of it. now im tireder than tired and it was an amazing biking day. and im so glad that THERES NO MORE SCHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!

Do they teach sentance structure and punctuation in your middle school?

Sounds like a fine way to end the school year. Keep riding Palmer, you'll be sponsored soon enough!

Cheers

lol i know my writting skills are very bad, english is my weak point, but i am good at math and they say thats the next best thing! plus im on the internet and i dont take my time to capitalize and spell check and think, i just type and listen to music

oh yeah, we didnt ruin or break anything while at the park which was pretty amazing actually, and also yes we did move the picnic tables back when we were done with them

Sounds awesome- the part of it I read. You should try not to ramble on and on so much.

Well I have to say I admire this kids ability to take on the poor grammar comments and not go popping off with an attitude. Your okay in my book H.I.A.N. Be careful though, don't let a crowd push you into going beyond your abilities. Just do a search on the word, "collarbone".
