stranded... for abit.

Yesterday we went shredding. 2 days ago phil got his sled back from getting its recalls done at the shop. we get home from riding. we end up ripping around on the sled on the yard we are staying at.

We end up deciding we would go for a rip down rutherford creek. its about 5 mins from pemby. there is a snowmobile groomed track that is about 35kms until you get into the open bowls.

anica.phil. and i end up squeezing onto phils sled. anica sat down. me and phil both stood up on the sides.

at one point we slowed down for a turn.i flew off. phil flew off. anica also flew off. the sled went into a little ditch. i would pay to see the replay.

we came across a little dam. we pulled over to explore. at this point it was raining. i had goggles so i was super good. we wur all soaked. and screwed around there for a little bit.

after about 20 minutes we keep heading down this trail. its about 4.30 at this point so we wur planning on heading back to the truck at about 5. a.because it would get dark. b.because we had no clue where we wur going.

so its about 5 and anica suggested we go back. we should have listened. but kept going a little bit further.

as wur going all of a sudden the sled shuts off. i thought phil had hitten the kill switch. but apparently it was worth than that. so wur stopped now. trying to figure this out. phil knows what hes doing with sleds. so im waiting for him to fix the problem. he's pulling and pulling. nothing. then i hear the dreaded words. "the engine blew". a. i was like that is f'd. b. what are we gonna do. c. theres mountain lions and stuff out here.

so wur trying to figure out what to do. we move the sled off the trail. we know no one is coming because the parking lot was empty when we pulled in so the chances of someone coming from that direction was slim. first thing i think of what most would do is pull out your phone. no service. f'd. me and anica had the only phones and both had no service. wur screwed.

it was 5.15 when i tried calling 911. i thought for some reason you get service no matter what when you call the police. apparently not. so we start to walk.

its funny when your in the middle of a valley surrounded by mountains. the sun is going down. the first thing you think of is cougars or wolves. I did the wrong thing and mentioned it. phil automatically jumped in the bush trying to find some weapons. i actually laugh now. because he came out with 3 little sticks. honestly the biggest one was like a foot long. it would have done nothing but it was a good attempt to use them as a sword or something.

so wur walking in all our snowboard sh#t and im constantly looking at my phone for when it would get a signal. half an hour seemed like a year. then it turned into an hour. by then we wur all tired. sweating. and wet from rain. it was like out of a movie. dark. wandering down a trail in the mountains. getting cold. no contact with no one. shit was heat.

the scariest part was. wur all walking. i kept hearing dogs barking which sounded not far. i was jonzing thinking wolves. i don't think they heard it but it scared the sh*t out of me. its funny when your in that scenario you always think of worse case scenario. I decided to put my goggles over my throat incase a cougar attacked me. cause i think they go for the neck or throat? anyway i had that covered. after 2 hours of walking we came upto the dam we had stopped at in the beginning. we wur super cashed. decided to stop and chill for abit. whats crazy is how my phone had a signal when i sat on the ground. it was insane. i would stand up or walk a little bit. nothing. but this one little area it worked. call the police. they transfer us to search and rescue. the guy tells us it can be a couple hours. and to build a fire or hut..

phil makes a makeshift fort. apparently a half igloo. we all get in. and begin to freeze. well at least i did. phil and anica wur warm. we made jokes. the fort placement was terrible. my spot had a rock digging into me as a backrest..

another couple hours go by. its about 9.30 and still no one there. my phone had died. anica had no signal the hole time. we freaked out. at one point we all did the robot. i can't tell this story. my mind is everywhere.

at about 10.30 search and rescue came. it was like seeing heaven. but they wur headlights of sleds. we made it out. felt like idiots. that is my story. ask me sometime in person and i'll make it better. love

australian day. sore stomach day. cold out day. knotted hair day. molars hurting day. from floss day. monday.
some people are too rich. lets limo it to the hill.

went to the bar. tons of people. expensive drinks. long lines. but good.
im craving domino's. gorg.
also craving mini ramp. with homies. and beer. and my lost fm transmitter.
i bought a bunch of perogies. and kd. and onions. made it all. burnt the perogies. filled the trailer with smoke. reburnt my burnt lips with hot sauce.
i hustled 2 free beers. the end of the night was probly the funniest moment. will snaking beers. and pitchers of what tasted like cleaning solution alcohol.
serious cinamon buns.
me and gorg laughed hard about this pic. i tried taking it un-noticed. it took like 4 tries from across the room to get these kids. and in the end the table next to us was like wtf. but kids gondolla there faces for fun.
mad chapp. mint blistex makes it 10 times worse.
its funny. when you eat at home. you take the end pieces of the bread for granted. I would never of done this at home. but here. its a must. heel sammys. all day. apparently its australian day. poeple go nuts for it. i was riding today. and see this dude. long hair. speedo. with a ausi flag around his neck bombing the hill. its fn freezing to. my fingers have never been so numb. that dude must be on something potent. and everyones wearing shorts and wigs. to much yellow and green. hopefully i survive this night. love

abercrombie bro...

i am full. went out lastnight. woke up. went riding. by 2 i was done. me and gargoyle downloaded for the first time. we wur starving. anyway. wur in the whis gondola. these 4 chicks get in. i geuss from asia. they had the craziest language. i honestly tryed not to laugh. i look over to gorg. he's hiding his face behind his board. anyway. so they're talking this language and its going from low pitch to like fast high pitch. i burst out laughing. brents still hiding. they're staring at me. i couldn't stop laughing. they must have been talkin shit about me cause they wur like laughing to eachother. but i was still laughing. gorg was laughing and hiding. best part of my day so far.

2 key features to meals. also initial your stuff. shits expensive.
i've had this 2 days in a row. soo good. 12 bowls of noodles for 5 bones. handsomeness. priceless
my hand has been upto some crazy stuff. you think it would be a disadvantage. but holding a pan with no fingers is almost worth it.
still peeling oranges.
petting cow. as in 1 cow. me and phil try'd getting in there. i convinced phil to jump the fence. the cow pissed himself. for real. then started running around like a wild horse. i didn't know they could run. phil freaked out. to scared to ride it. but my hand was looking so good at the time. obv.
i pretend to brush. i honestly have permanent knots.
this kitty is dope. it loves the cast. "sorry did my ass just get in the way of your body"phil. to anica. get this. you know when you make a meal. its almost not worth it. cause you gotta cook it. set everything up. drink.plate.different dishes.etc. then you finally eat it. and if it was "alright". it was not worth it. cause then you have to do the dishes from all the cooking. then you wanna go back in time and not even cook at all.
my hand also goes swimming.
well hot tubbing. phils flexing. so about 10 pm this sucker closes. these dudes come out at about 9:45. there on some break from american college. one dudes a complete jonze and is passing out on the side of the pool. the other dudes are talkin. so the one big dude is talkin. im barely listening. he's introducing themselves so i start to listen. "man this dude is crazy. he surfs. skateboards. snowboards. he does everything". "he's from cali". then the cali dude puts on a cheesy smile and is knodding like "yea". later on i hear this guy talking about his tattoo. "yeah this is my family crest. everyone has it." this is the best part. he goes "yeah these crazy scars are from longboarding". no one asked about the scars. nor the tattoo. had to be there.
phil cooked me supper. i was stoked. he even made me ice tea.
anica has been sick. phil is gonna get it. i've already called not getting it.
gargoyle got his new phone today.
my lips are burn't and chapped.
tons of frost.
im doing tons of laundry. i can actually do it.
new doo.
5 boards fit. love

bad karma or luck. or just extreme handsomeness.

Weather has been insane. winnipeg is warming up aswell. my cars going coo coo. i now have heat but no interior lights. went to the library. took out some books to read. getting a library card is ideal. free movies. magazines. books. computer use. all for free. well borrow. same thing. Im trying to do this blog on phils computer. this is actually hard not on a mac. typing alone. there is 5 birthdays on facebook today. happy birthday.
this is will and trevors place. we've been known to watch vids on the computer up there. brent also sleeps on the been bag from time to time.
there walkway up is dope. would be death if icy.

People are rich. not all. but most. houses/cabins are insane. some house sold for 18 mil by whistler mountain. Places are going so expensive for the olympics next year. will and watsons place is going for 25gs a month next winter. shits weak.
me and will went to a second hand use it thing store. so much old stuff. microwaves going for 15 bones. coffeemakers for 9 bones. gently used underwear for 1 bone. stock up.
I have a severe ear ache. from hot tubing last night. going peak to peak was the most pain ever. elevation change. it was bad. badder than a jungled wrist. i know badder's not a word.
Tons of hanging.
Will has been so kind to leave his xbox 360 here. Im killing it at tiger woods 07. but i miss ping pong.
i took my camera out. took one photo from the chair lift. kate goes in the black park! we chat through fences..

So my computer is broken. it won't turn on. there are no mac repair places around. my hand also rebroke. i got to spend a nice afternoon at the hospital. it was super sunny. so i was stoked. time for a nice awkward time in the hot tub and pool and drink away some of this pain. not addicted wise but. yea. love
