Hahaha...not to brag but I hop on a lift to MID mountain and I have 15 minutes of dh...I go from MID to top and i can probably DH for .... 35 minutes or so. If you are serious about a road trip you can't NOT hit whistler and the shore.

Wow, i'd be really cool if I didn't live in New Hampshire. This is gonna end up being a vacation type thing. Thats to much gas money for a road trip. Stupid gas prices getting up to $2.50 in some states. Would be cheaper to fly.

Damn u all lol.... Its not fair, i Hate GBR... there are no skinnies over here, just loadsa single track, its very rare that u find any northshore style stuff over here, and the single track is starting to bore me.....

As for Klien, he never says anything useful, i dont see the point in him even being on this forum... all he ever does is make wise ass comments, or put people down... pointless....

I'm looking for it. Its not at the LBS so if anyone finds it online lemme know!

I was wondering, does anyone else hate waiting for stuff to arrive in the mail. Stuff like UPS, FedEx and stuff like that? I'm waiting for my helmet and pads. Its annoying. But i'll be happy when they get here. I was wondering if anyone else hated waiting for stuff like that.

Damn people, all of those drops are things you normally need repelling equipment to go down. I'm all about it though, rock on for being so brave.

I've never done anything in those pictures and probably won't ever do any of those. The people in the pics are pro's or close to it.

Not a chance. Would have made it all over the news. And mtbr is known for being totally innacurate for..well..everything. When the guy was thinking of dropping 83 ft it made it into papers, e-zines..everywhere. If anything people over measure.

Biggest tried - 54 ft Jah Drop
Biggest landed - mid 40's
