I appreciate that. :D So I guess that means late Aug/sometime Sept for me to try it? After the 5K, I have a 5 mile race in August.

And I"m honest. I'll try that!

You'll try this drop??



:eek:

First you have to be able to get to it... :p

Which drop are we talking about? The one in the video or the one of Marc in the still pic?
I was actually talking about the one in the vid (not knowing what Marc looks like and therefore wasn't aware there was a still of him). But I'm flexible. I could use some daredevil stuff in my life. :lol:

We'll see about that... ;)

BTW - I don't plan on carrying your carcass out of the woods, so I hope you like it there...
Pshah! Ye of little faith. Anybody want to make this an official challenge? Let's say sometime in September? I'll even find a babysitter so both of us can go!

I'm actually more worried about your Hardrock falling apart on the landing...

I'd be happy with you giving the 'huck' in the video a shot...

Bah. It'll be fine. What's the worst that could happen? ;)

Aren't you the chick that got wiped out on Temptor showing off a little bit? Save this technical stuff for the pros...like Jeff and me. ;)

You're not making progress unless you fall, right? ;) Besides, I walked (and skied) away from Temptor. Skied away from my (partial) ACL tear on Nor'Easter, too. :lol: :dunce: It's no biggie!

Uh... Your wheels could fold over and end up resembling more of a taco than a wheel... ;)

Find me something to practice on and I'll show you what I can do! ;)

Okay, we just need to find a babysitter... Any volunteers? Our kids aren't that bad... :lol:
