I took my kids to Whistler B.C. in the summer when the skiing is closed down. Young people were engaged in scree running. The rubble that accumulates beneath cliff faces is called scree. Runners and cyclists crash down the mountain with incredible speed. Brakes are useless and likely to cause a crash.
About 25% of them were bandaged to some degree and we saw a dozen plaster casts. One girl had casts on all four limbs and facial bruising and cuts.
Some of the kids in the audience were so banged up that I'm pretty sure they were the stars of this show a week earlier. There were neck braces, traction devices and all manner of bindings.
QUOTES FROM MEMBERS --- In my veterinary opinion, pets should be fed the diet they are biologically designed to eat. Su Ba...The "redistribution" aspect is an "Urban Myth" as far as I know. I have only heard it uttered by those who do not have a food forest, and are unlikely to create one. John Polk ...Even as we sit here, wondering what to do, soil fungi are degrading the chemicals that were applied. John Elliott ... O.K., I originally came to Permies to talk about Rocket Mass Heaters RMHs, and now I have less and less time in my life, and more and more Good People to Help ! Al Lumley...I think with the right use of permie principles, most of Wyoming could be turned into a paradise. Miles Flansburg... Then you must do the pig's work. Sepp Holzer

I used to live near a place called chimney rock, because in times past, the people used the rocks to build chimneys because they fractured pretty much square. There were MTB trails, and for the life of me, I couldn't see the fun in riding in a place like that...
But then again, now I have to bunny hop chickens... :
