Ummm...Why is there dirt on both of their 'bandaleers' or should I ask?
I've been skiing something like 33 seasons. I wear a helmet now, always when skiing, biking, and kayaking. Yes, when I was younger helmets were rare. I also have been hit in the head, with a Head ski as a matter of fact. I pulled a piece of my scalp out of the binding. I wish I had been smart enough to wear a helmet then. It would have been one less concussion on my list.
About a week ago I went over the handlebars in a mountain bike race. This is a shot of my helmet. I have no doubt it preserved my life. At the very least I would have a traumatic brain injury. So, now all I have is a slight concussion and a stiff neck.
I consider myself very fortunate.
I wear a helmet, I advocate helmets, WEAR A HELMET! ..boneheads
