: : I admire all of you who, like me, have kept Raiders alive and well in your hearts these 17 years, as well as the sequels. (My personal last viewing of Raiders was Wednesday June 10).
: : I know that you honor The Great Pat Roach as much as I do, so I wanted to share some news with you: There is a sledding hill in Mequon, WI, which is extremely dangerous (fast, full of divots, trees on it, a snow fence along the bottom). No one has ever come back from that hill without at least bumps and bruises. One man cracked his shin. Another dislocated his shoulder. A third spit blood. My worst injury was a smashed shoulder and a bruised butt.
: : Since this hill is able to cause such injuries with ease, it seemed only fitting to me and a few other faithful fans to name it after the greatest injury inducer of all time: Pat Roach.
: : If you are ever in the area and feel brave enough to attempt a run down this hill, you can find it at the intersection of Hwy 57 (Cedarburg Road) and Highland Road just north of Mequon, WI.

: What part of Wisconsin is Mequon in? Sounds like a blast!

Aaron, Mequon is located just north of Milwaukee. If you were to take I-43 north out of Milwaukee, you would exit on Mequon Road. Take Mequon Road west about 3 miles to Hwy 57 (aka Cedarburg Road). Take Hwy 57 North to Highland (about 4 miles) and you will find it on the Northeast corner of that intersection. It's a bit of a drive from Minnesota, but if you're ever in the area after a good snowfall...
