Me too Bushwacker. Hero's, yes I've known a few but you (name droppers Con stance and Chaois) wouldn't know their names because they were real heros.
^^^Real heros? Please explain. I know who I have been inspired by and for what reasons. These things change with time. Nobis was my hero from around 1998 to maybe 2001 when I finally beat him to a first descent in AK sans helicopter.
I know where you are going with real heroes though. NYFD 9/11 etc.
Agreed, real heroes for real reason, freedom and all that. Without certain huge sacrifices I would not have the time and freedom to sit here on the internet and gab away about frivolous things, like skiing.
My most recent hero these days is Chris Davenport. Big mountain climbing and skiing. Good stuff.
My hero is Brian Urlacher. Not only did he carry his entire team on his back to the Superbowl only to be let down by his offense, but he continues to play for the love of the game and lay the smack down like no other player in the NFL. RECOGNIZE FOOLS!
