I am sure most have heard but Shane Mcconkey died two days ago in a ski base accident. He was filming for next years MSP video in the Dolomites of Italy. Alot are upset over this and most have never met him including myself but his amazing character and humble attitude made him an icon to many. He will me missed.

This season for skiing has been, lackluster. At the beginning the snow wouldnt stop. The avi danger was intense, but the powder... incredible. Now the layers have consolidated and the melt freeze cycle is full on. But today I went to the lightning coulour to see how she was. The hike there was laden with elk poop and mountain lion tracks. Once we got to the bottom of it we realized its time was over. The chute itself has a great open face for some wide turns with a choke in the middle and a tier drop 20-10-20 cliff band that ends the tough stuff. Then just after that is a mandatory twenty footer into the avi prone bottom. Actually the whole thing is avi prone. Anyway the entire time I heard it speak to me as we approached. All I heard was, " Hey kid, why dont you come back in a few years and dont forget your A Game." It was embarrassing but it's always good to be humbled in life I suppose.

This is amazing. I have not watched the news in quite some time. But IT seems that no matter what the news source I have never seen a video of this character who endorses J. McCain. I dont care really. I tend to hate politics and politicians all around. But I am still dumbfounded at the message even though it may be out of context (I dont know how it could be) that this man is preaching.
Even if you are not a "Christian", if you have ever even heard anything of the Bible, there is one key message. LOVE THY NEIGHBOR. Thats it. Thats all you have to take out of it. And yet here we have a most likely well syndicated "pastor" saying such things. AMAZING.
