I have yet another entry into the adventures of Shawn.
I Just got Back from Nelson Bc. This is how it began:
John had left us that morning after a long night of ripping up all the local bvars in calgary, the reggae bar, the punk bar, the expensive 8$ a shot of mescal mexican bar, and the hip hop bar. I stay up with john all night so he doesnt sleep and miss his plane at 6:30. So now, we go downtown and do some errands.
Me and Aric are at Zzeng's Internet cafe playing all sorts of games and writing emails. It's gettin late and we have no desire to go home. So we put it off till 2 am, and then realize we've missed the last C-train home. So we decide to pull an all nighter, so we play starcraft and warcraft 3 until 6:30 am. We jet home and check our messages. 'Hi Guys , It's Sofie, your bus leaves to Medicine Hat at 8:30am. you should be on it.' It's 7:00. Ok, we can make it. Start packin up our shit, cookin some brekke, call a cabbie. it's 8:10. Cab is here, we gotta be at the bus station in 20 min. We run into crazy traffic. The cabbie pulls some mad crazy shit, and scams his way to the front. We get to the station. it's 8:30. Aric lost his ticket. Goes to buy another. i hop on the bus, and we're off. 2 hours later, we're in medicine hat. We meet up with Sofie and Stefan, her brother, and we get all our shit together and head off for nelson BC. it's 6:00. We're drivin...Im drivin.....BEHIND THE WHEEL AGAIN!! MUAHAHAHAHAHA! and it's a civic too......dun dun dunnnnn. so an hour and a half in, everyones baked on hashi, cept me, and we're goin about 120 Km/h, and a semi blows by. KABOOM, BLAM, RIP, SMASH!!, look in the rearview....sparks are flying everywhere......sparks from our skis and snowboards.....The whole fucking roof rack ripped off the car.. We hop out and run like naked convicts back to pick up our shit off the highway. My new 2003 Machete Sin's are.....ok. The 2 boards took most of the impact...they're pretty messed. but workable. The moulding on the side of the car is sticking straight up about 5 feet in the air. Great way to start the trip. So I take the roof rack.....whats left of it....it was one of those stupid cheap Bic ones.....and go over to the railroad tracks. I take a piece of steel and smash the clips, bending them so they fit the car better. it works. We're off again. Were rippin through the rockies, Im lovin drivin on these roads. 7 hours into the drive, it starts snowing. hard. It's midnight or some shit and im in a fucking blizzard in the rockies when it's foggy with crazy semis ripping by in the midst of total white-outs. This is messed, Im driving in the wrong lane. Shit. pull over, and then pull in behind a semi. Safe. Eventually we decide to stop in Yahk. mmmm hotel bed...aahhhhh, first sleep in about 3 days. Wake up, the room's not bad, only some grapefruit on the floor this time. We head into the Salmo Pass. Crazy shit, the road had been wiped out in 4 or 5 places by avalanches, this is nutty. Anyways we get to Nelson, and we go eat an organic breakfast at an organic restaurant. I ate an ostrich sausage and organic eggs. mmmmmm...ostrich......yeah, and then we decide to check out where we'll be sleeping. So we drive up to the mountain, and put on our packs and start to hike. we follow a creek up a mountain that is full of quartz crystals...nice ones....and 20 min later, we come to a small entrance to a cave. We go inside. This cave is about seven feet high, 5 feet wide, goes back about 60 feet, and has three different 'rooms'. There's crazy drawings on the walls and one of the rooms has been set up to sleep in. Sweet. We set up shop and get a fire started. Then we return to Nelson. we visit with my aunt and then head out. We see some guy smokin a bone, and aric and stefan hop out to see what they can see. We drive the guy to a house and he gives us five little heart shaped chocolates and a gram of hash. The chocolates were mushrooms. We go back to the cave with 2 six's of Nelson beer and smoke some hash, And settle in for the night. It was awesome. we wake up and head out to Ski Whitewater. Yeah whitewater, my favourite mountain. We get there and it is sick, I love this place, snow is sick, cliffs are sick, im sick. I've never dropped shit this crazy before, its awesome. Im surrounded by wickid cool ski bums like myself that are wickid riders. the skiing community here is unbelievable. Everyone cheering you on under the chair, it's a rush. We ski the backside and it is possibly the greatest run of my life. Awesome. Me and aric get down and have to drive back to get Sofie and Stefan. we pull a few doughnuts in the parking lot and aric goes to return his poles. Aris appears again and says 'Go, Get in the car and go. NOW!' Theres something under his jacket...I see a hose.....oh shit, he did not just get a huge tank of nitrous. Yes, yes he did....hahahaha, oh shit, this is gonna be one funny ass car ride. For those of you who don't know, Nitrous is laughing gas, it's given as an anesthesia. So we pull out and head back to Nelson. We set up base at my aunts house and then headed out to the hot springs. These hot springs have caves in them, when you go in, the walls are crazy calcified and theres stalagmites and shit all over. We eat our mushrooms. mmmmm, these walls are nutty on mushrooms, the iron leaks out and looks like the walls are bleeding, and you can crawl up into this small cave to sit in a pitch black corner while water falls on your head and you feel the energy of the rock all around you. Wow, that's a trip. So after that awesome experience, we hit up the car and bust out the hash and nitrous. We're listenin to trance, breathin in that hippy crack, and smokin while we're drivin on Coffin Creek Road. it's called that for a reason, holy shit. Anyways, after that, we are all in a euphoric state of mind and life is beautiful. We settle down for a nice sleep. In the morning, we drive back to the ski hill and Aric returns the tank. we keep the nozzle for a token reminder. We drive down and look out the window, and there's an osprey leading our car down the road...it was wild. Well, now Im in medicine hat, bummin around, staying at sofie and stefans.....it was a good trip. Stay tuned.
hopefully I can set up a mad crazy party for everyone sometime..maybe spring break for those of you who aren't doing anything.
