<I>(Note from the Administrator: This report was originally posted on 5/15/99. Due to our move to new servers, the date and time attributed to this post is incorrect.)</I> <BR> <BR>Saturday, May 15 1999 <BR>Bright sun, 75 degrees. <BR> <BR>Killington has enough bumps for anyone on Superstar. <BR>Then there are some more bumps. <BR> <BR>Got a late start around 1PM. Just walking up for my <BR>first ride up I bump into Garry Waldeck. <BR>Garry has already made about 8 runs, so we ride up, <BR>hike down the dirt and grass to the bumps, and Garry <BR>takes off, leaving me standing. I had a hard time <BR>keeping up, Garry kicked my ass. Had a great time on <BR>the easy middle section, tired myself out QUICK. <BR> <BR>Heading up the next time I noticed some of the famous <BR>Killington rock piles. I pointed them out to Garry <BR>so we decided to build one. We made a pile right at <BR>the top of Superstar, an engineer pile, well balanced <BR>with flat stones large at the bottom and smaller going <BR>up. Then we got a short piece of plaid and a stick and <BR>made a flag at the top of the pile. Garry had his camera <BR>and took some pictures with the mountain backdrop framing <BR>our little pile. Nice one by me, I tried to put my foot <BR>on top of the pile for a picture 3 TIMES, as if I had <BR>conquered the mountain. Of course I knocked over the <BR>pile each time. Duh. It was kind of funny, Garry was <BR>laughing pretty hard. So I just stood next to it for <BR>the picture. I'll post them on the web when Garry <BR>sends them over. <BR> <BR>We made one more run together. I couldn't believe Garry <BR>could still outdo me when he had done so many more runs. <BR>After Garry left I only made a couple more runs before <BR>calling it a day and heading home for some beers.
