I'm telling you this is an old gypsy trick?! Some of you speak of your good fortune and luck as regards no injuries; and what might befall you is too dark for words.
My theory: Bob Peters has been a really good and informative host to many with questions about JH and SLC. He has even written about off track goods at the Vill. Very nice, almost too nice.... But then it starts to snow in Jackson, he must have panicked with thoughts of all these Bears and buddies coming there wanting to share local stashes. What had he done, what was he thinking?!
So, the thread about injuries, you who have suffered on the slopes are probably OK.. in the clear. But those who have offered up general good health and lack of hurting,... Jeez, are you in for a world of woe!
But if you are lucky enough to be walking by a dingy curtained storefront with the Reader/Adviser sign, go in and tell her of your foolish lapse. You might get out of there with an anticurse for ..hmmm.. 30-50 bucks. Except if you have a nice suit, expensive shoes, and a Power tie. Then the sky is the limit (Visa, Mastercard accepted?).
I know someone will not pay heed and we will hear the story of how they jumped into their bindings in the living room (barefoot) in excited anticipation of JH, smashing their Achilles as the heel piece snapped down.
On the other hand, Bob's medical ski history might explain how Jackson supports so many Orthopods. Is there a license plate on a surgeon's fine SUV that says, "BOB"?
Nice try Bob, but I have taken a couple of hard falls and hit my noggin. Once without a helmet, once with protection.
Would that surprise you?
