Sorry for not posting Saturday and so late today but I had one crazy weekend... Friday night after I posted me and a few buddies went out to the bar and crashed on one of my buds couch around 10. I am not a big drinker but last week was the worst week in years..
We woke up the next day and almost immediately started drinking again and Mark had the grand idea of going sledding. We were all still a bit hung over so we called up Mikes little brother to drive us out to the giant hill in our buddies property that he allows for public use in the winter. There weren't many people out yet so we decided to try and surf down the hill on our sleds. Keep in mind that none of us make good decisions when we are hung over.
My good friend Steve went first and went straight down the hill screaming like a little girl followed by the rest of our group of exceptional individuals. Our group consisted mainly of suit wearing business people that haven't even been outdoors since they were in their teens. We decided to try and go down the other side of the hill that was steeper but there was one lone tree at the bottom of the hill... We all decided that there wasn't a way in hell that we could hit it. About 3 coolers and 10 sled rides later we wanted to do something crazy. So my good friend Matt grabbed his kids blow up pool out of the back of his truck and started pumping air into it. We all started taking our seats inside of the blow up pool and downing the beers we had open.
We decided at the very beginning of our day that there would be no video tapes or pictures and I really wish we would of filmed this. Once we all were piled into the pool we slowly started running and smashing into the sides of the pool to get it moving. Once it started sliding down the hill Phil realized that we were directly lined up with the tree. We couldn't see the pool before because the walls were so high but once we were heading downhill things became quite clear very quickly. We all tried to abandon ship but every time anyone tried to get up they fell back down because they were so drunk. We all seemed to realize at once how screwed we really were. Everyone was screaming by this point and Mark was even trying to pop the pool with his teeth to escape. As we smashed into the tree at full speed about 3 people flew out of the pool and went about 20 feet ahead into the shallow snow. Everyone else smashed into the side of the pool and I was on the second layer.
Marks little brother loaded us all into the back of his van and brought us all to the hospital. I stayed for one night and fractured my knee and two fingers. So I'm sorry if some of this is spelled atrociously... No one was seriously injured though. The worst anyone had was a broken arm and he was one of the guys who launched twenty feet. Thanks for reading and remember to never drink and sled or sled with inflatable pools. Both those things are bad.
