    Maddo made $1e6 for that jump and said he wouldn't do it again for the same amount of money. I watched it live and it absolutely terrified me, I can't imagine how it felt to execute. And, he broke his foot on the jump down... that's one of the craziest most hairball things I've ever watched...

    Agree! I rarely get freaked out by watching stuff on TV. TP's double BF was one and this was another... I'd been watching the practice and reading up on all the press prior to the jump but still just wasn't prepared for what I saw... the ski ramp jump and LL's world record jump are impressive but they never freaked me out like this one did.

    I feel your pain, I have a Boone and Crocket bear rug. 7'11" nose to tail. Used to hang on the wall in the stair case. We remodeled the stairs, no bear. It is in a vacuum bag.
    One of the female teachers here, said if her hubby did one in shades of pink, she would let him put it in the house.

    I have come to embrace the philosophy that it really is her house and I am just doing my part so that she continues to allow me to live there too :deal

    If she allows me to keep some toys stashed in the garage so much the better!

    She stays outta my shop. Reloading stuff, fly tying, wood working, bike storage. Now I do use the garage to work on bikes. Right now the cars that go in there are outside and bikes and ATV are inside. I was told that needs to get fixed this weekend. I said but Deb, I am riding, she replied. Not until the I can park my car in the garage!

    More garage space=more stuff. Or popularity.
