If you can read this story and not get a little emotional over it you are a better man than i am. I guess i not ashamed to shed a tear over that one and to pause and say" thank you god for your protection"

I have had a hard time keeping up with my friends this year, I've said that I’ve lost the edge. Can't go that fast anymore. I think about losing all that I've gained in a blink of an eye. When I think about it, I haven't lost the edge, I smartened up. It's not worth dying or becoming paralyzed. These stories get to you after a while, at 32 I'm not invincible anymore. The scary thing is that I’ve made one of those calls to my friend’s family after he hit a rock, he was uninjured, but I rode to the phone. I was scared crap to call them at 11:30 to ask for help getting his sled out of the woods, couldn’t imagine telling them that their son had died.
