My Insane Weekend

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.

I am not supposed to use my fingers that much so I may not post much this week. Also wooo!!!! 300 followers! :)

The mental image I got of Mark trying to bite the pool to deflate it is hilarious. Too bad about you guys actually getting hurt. Hope you all heal up quickly.

This makes me miss snow. I used to live in the midwest. Sorry you guys got hurt!

Jéanne said... Reply To This Comment

I'm awfully sorry to hear that you all got so banged up, but this story is HILARIOUS!!! Move over, Jackass! You guys should make a "Bragon Boys" movie! Boys will be boys, eh?! Hope the hangover wasn't too bad and that you make a full recovery soon! :)

You should have gotten photos. Men in business suits hurtling drunkenly down a hill would have been priceless.

That is an amazing story. I'm glad you're (more or less)ok, and I'm sure your major regret is that no one had a camera to catch that trip down hill, you'd be a Youtube God!

Friko said... Reply To This Comment

This is a very funny story, in spite of the outcome. I can just picture it . . . . .

Sorry, I've not returned your visits to my poetry blog; that blog doesn't react to followers and comments. Come over to Friko's World and I shall know when you've called.

Tonkow said... Reply To This Comment

I was wondering why the late update.
Oh well =P

BragonDorn said... Reply To This Comment

@Alex Rowe Nope they don't allow it in the hospitals. It would of been so much cheaper than the drugs they give you...

Jax said... Reply To This Comment

That is the single most epic story I've ever heard (& I NEVER use the word epic lol). I'm glad you're all ok, but sledding down a hill in a kiddie pool??? That's great!! hahaha

Drinking? Sledding down an icy hill toward a tree?

Ahaahah sounds like an epic day xD

Kelly said... Reply To This Comment

Hilarious story. Reminds me of the shit my friends and I used to do in our twenties. Now that we are in our mid to late forties, it would be a miracle if we could blow up a kiddie pool or climb up a snowy hill before even starting a merry ride on the snow. It sounds like y'all had some bone-crunching, drunken fun. Next time you guys plan on hurting yourselves, though, please have someone film your insane antics so we can enjoy the video and make fun of all of you. I love it when people hurt themselves for my entertainment.

Oh man, that does sound pretty crazy.

No Crap, that's the best drunk/hung over sledding story I've ever heard.

sundersartwork said... Reply To This Comment

Drinking and sledding lol.
That is a dangerous combination, still you only live once.

Al Penwasser said... Reply To This Comment

Supposed to snow this weekend. I know what I won't be doing.
Sledding.
There will be drinking, though.

Ah, drunken mistakes. At least you didn't start a fight club outside a bar and have the police break it up...

Heal up and get much needed rest. Your misfortune has value in teaching me what not to do. Thank you for that experience, sans injuries.

All I can say, that seems great fun. I wish it snows here.

anthony stemke said... Reply To This Comment

Great story, glad you are all right dude. I don't have a pool in the back of my pickup so I guess I'm ok. Oh, I took the cure in '89 so would have to sled sober.

M Pax said... Reply To This Comment

Ouch. But I couldn't help but laugh at one of your friends trying to deflate the pool with his teeth. Drinking and snow sports really don't go together. At least, they usually end badly.

Baur said... Reply To This Comment

Nice 300! Sounds like an awesome weekend!
