...not to mention some new protective gear to protect my aging body.

A hiker search and rescue card is also available for something like $3, if one is not into fishing at all. Sure beats paying thousands for having your ass hauled out by S&R. :thumbsup:

I guess that's not totally true. https://dola.colorado.gov/dlg/fa/sar/sar_purchase.html
Wooo.. I'm getting one of these instead! Thanx man! :thumbsup:

WHOA, NICE: 5 year card for $12! I'm there!

I saw a red ribbon tied to a tree branch last week at Ceran St Vrain. Was this why? What happenned?
Don't know where the guy fell but my guess is at the little ledge with the big drop if you screw up the move. Is this where the ribbon is tied? He fell down about 60 feet.

I believe that would work better as a method call :):

if (thisPerson.activity == activities.biking) {
thisPerson.fall();
}
Excellent. I like it. :thumbsup:

Mountain biking is dangerous. It really should be banned.
Which activity has more chances of becoming injured (or catching a STD), riding someone's moustache or riding a bike? :p

Totally depending on number of occurances:

Moustache rides=seldom. Riding a bike=often
Personally, I would agree with your statement. Hell, at my going rate, I think I can reclaim my virginity! However, given the whole of Denver, I think Moustache rides occure more often than bike rides by many folds (no pun)

Yeah it sucks I had an injury at Heil on the 7th of June that required stitches in my right knee. Took the stitches out 5 days later and back on the bike in 6 days. No time for injuries :D

Ride Hard! :thumbsup:
