    do the mountains call for you?

    was wondering if anyone else feels the call of the wild during sled season? have been trying to not climb the bigger climbs anymore, am getting older and am trying to make some better riding choices. but when i'm sitting there staring up at a monster climb i swear the things are calling for me. i'll sit there and tell myslef i'm not going to hit it, just taking a look, but as soon as i fire the sled every fiber of my being is being drawn to the hill. its like theres a huge electromagnet up there and i'm a chunk of iron. theres just no turning it off, the rush is just to great to be ignored!!! nothing else gives me that feeling of being a part of something that is much bigger than me than when i'm headed up my buddies all laugh when i say theres no way i'm going up that thing today, then there i go, headed up. i guess the call is still greater than my sense of sensability...

        The photographer made the first photo look less steep by tilting the camera. You need to teach them to tilt to the other side. ; )

        I fixed it for you...

          It was my camera but thats me on the sled, My memory seems to involve lots more air than is shown and I think there may have been flames coming out the exhaust!
          Some where I have mpegs of pelican from the bottom to the tower, it takes about 60 seconds! Lots of stills.
          The "fixed" photo is sand ridge with scott in the background.

            The mpegs of Pelican would be interesting. If you can find them, please share.
