Don't remember who took this shot, but a classic: distraught, sittin' with homies, waitin' for trees on the cutblock. Pre-work, at the end of the 2005 season.
I used to plant trees. A lot of them. Though most people don't believe, an average full day for me in my final years fell around 6000 trees, with the occasional bigger day. 1.1 million trees in total, lifetime. This life is long over.
My friend Jason Nardella hit me up today with good news: his documentary, 78 Days, about life at my old company is reaching its final stages, so see the trailer here.
It was mainly filmed the year after injuries forced me to quit; an event that falls into the 'mixed blessing' realm. But, set in the crazy town of High Level, Alberta (once my summer home), it will feature several true blue amigos, the crazy life I loved, but could never live again.
ups, Jason. Looking forward to it.
