The - Scar Tissue - Stag
Play this video now.
This pic /song & video sums up our weekend as a group of 14 guys were staggering, stumbling, limping and passing out in a ditch next to our cabin (the groom) & even being carried out of this mountain town on a stretcher (yours truly) after a 3 day bachelor party for my buddy Chris Peerless' stag in Whistler BC - at least we dressed him up and made him the Pretty Princess Peerless that he is :) Just joking buddy.
It was truly a weekend I will never forget.
To be honest, I have had my share of 'near death experiences', that 'could' have happened, however this is one that actually DID happen: less than 3 hours into the weekend on Friday, I went flying off the side of a mountain cliff landing head first on a huge boulder rock (thank God I was wearing a helmet) and then having my 900 pound ATV 4 wheeler machine tumble right next to me spraying gasoline everywhere as I slid down the face of the cliff tearing my back open with scratches, now that is what I call 'Scare Tissue".
The guide that saw the whole thing said that if I was not wearing a helmet, I would be dead - period.
He also added that I was lucky that I did not break my neck from the compression of the fall or be paralyzed for life - and that it was amazing that the ATV didn't land right on me.
All in all, my guardian angel was working overtime fore sure & I am truly feel blessed to be alive and relatively uninjured! As the first aid guys were strapping me into a stretcher it made me really think how precious this life and body of ours is and how fast it can be lost & or destroyed...
Since this was my first bachelor party, my thoughts now are that if a groom can survive his stag, surviving a marriage is a piece of cake :)
Until next time, be happy to be alive everyone & live life to the fullest!
