uh, they dont care to regular jumps, but they were a bit pissed with us for the roadgap.
anyways, to my story:
Its a nice brisk morning, crashed at my buddies. wait, i better go back. our health teacher, hes all tellin us how he tried to build a gap back in '68, but got stopped before they hit it. so were like yeah, we were gonna go build a gap, hes all tellin us we wont get away with it. yeah right.
So on sunday, while my friend is working, (opening day for the pass) i go up and scope it out, and then start a pack for where we will set the jump up. i take photos, so we can plan it and all that good stuff, and head home.
So i crash at my buddies, we load everything up at like 7am, leave around 8 after b-fast. We reach our destination around oh, 9:15 or so. quick drivin from kalispell eh? 90 on the edge of lake mcdonald, haha. so we get there...
We pull in at the building, visitor center or wahtever. a ranger pulls up, and asks us where were headed, and we werent going to build the gap at that point, seeing as we dont want to get busted. so were like prolly up and over aways, to drop some cliffs, hes like alright, then i think, hey, hes a ranger, lets ask if were allowed. so hes like, 'as long as you dont fuck yourselves up, and try not to get noticed.'
We're totally stoked, so we head over. we move the jump a lil, then build the whole thing. step the landing, then its time to hit it, its around 10 or so now. Im kinda nervous, seeing as i dont want to smash myself, and so im kinda like, i dunno about this... then a jammers comin. haha. i still dont want to, but my buddies sitting there calling me a pussy, so of course i go, twister twister spread, my god i made it, that was dope. he goes, makes it, were stoked. i jump another jammer, do a shitty mute,(wasnt sure on my speed) cuz the snow was gettin slower every jump, i do a few more, and a 540 to death (bounced, and died) then he jumps a few more, and these people start walkin up. hes still on the bottom side. (foggy, cant see them well) he wants to gap the people, but then realizes its 3 rangers. shit. i start packin my stuff. im not gonna run, but i know were busted. cuz they look pissed.
Tylers basically like, is there some sort of problem, and this ranger chicks all shakin her head no no no, and one of the asshole guys is like, wheres your ID. At this point, i start breakin down the jump, maybe they will be like, oh, theyre keepin others from doin it. so maybe we'll get some slack. they toss us in the cab of a patrol truck, our shit in the back, and were back at the visitor center.
We load up the car, he takes my ID, and goes to check us. Another ranger drives up, were like fuck. Ten minutes go by, and a third, looks like a supervisor. The first ranger that came to us, asks me to come out of the car, my buddie starts comin, and the ranger yells at him to stay there, were like, shit, they're pissed.
The supervisors all interogating me, and im like we got permission. And he told us, should there be complaints, we'd just be asked to quit, and break down the jump. we were bein totally safe, it just so happens we were about to quit, since the snow was slow. So hes like i see, well we had alot of complaints, im like 'we jumped alot of cars' haha. classic. anyways, he goes off with the other two rangers, im standin in the cold, in a T-shirt, and they come back like 15 minutes later. they are like, well youre lookin at a bundle of fines. Firstly, according to the officer you talked to this morning, he told you not to do it, so we got you on lyin to police officers, and we'd give you two separate ones, since you lied to him, and me. thats 1000 bucks. each. then we got you on disorderly conduct, theres 75. wreckless endangerment, another 100, disturbin the peace, etc etc. so im like that rangers just trying to cover his tail, cuz he knows that he shouldnt have told us we could, and his ass is on the line. so goes on for awile, the come back again, well, were going to cite you just on the disorderly conduct, so you two can split it. ( mind you the whole time, there is an officer 6 inches away from the passenger side of my car, since my buddies sitting in it, 50ft away, with the keys in the ignition, so they werent letting him out, and the had me sittin at the hood of the patrol car.)
they go to discuss more, and then one of the rangers is a buddie of my parents, works wiht my mom in the winter as ski patrol, and my dads a park employee, so he knows the dude. so he tells me i can go warm up. (oh, there were two rangers minus guns, that were guarding the car.) but the ranger i knew got them to drop all the charges, and we were home free. good story? but yeah, got some good jumps.
on a side note 10% of the people were pissed, 90% were like fuck yeah, you got balls, or honking and doing thumbs up. so you ten percent who suck, i hate you.
now for the pics,sorry for reposting them, but ill put some captions.
