Handyman shit is good work to do. I do a lot of that around my ranch as well, fixing fences, building corrals, and general boring stuff like cutting firewood and clearing roads... It's so nice to be outside, or even inside, doing something that doesn't involve a screen!

I've been skateboarding off and on for 17 years, and still can't really ride a longboard. If you pursue that, I'd like to know what the learning curve is for getting some nice carves!

Anyway, I hit the gym 6 days a week in the summer and try to eat well. So far I've been doing great! I've only been mountain biking and hiking like 6 times, and golfing twice. Haven't had to many free days unfortunately. Thinking about blowing 20k on a new toy, can't decide if it's worth it..

I have like two friends I talk to, I'm pretty introverted for the most part. I'm in OKC right now doing a couple jobs. it's hot, humid and flat! Atleast it's not on fire here though. I hope nobody here has been affected by the wildfires!
What kind of gym program are you into? As I said, hiking has shown me how out of shape I am. I figure doing more of it will help, but perhaps just spending some time focusing toward a goal or something will be more beneficial.

And meeting all the "summer" friends n relatives, means the ones we hardly ever see during winter season cause they don't ride board/ski. And if time and wind allows, there's also kite/windsurfing.
Wow! You are an adrenaline junkie, eh Neni! That is too cool! How long have you been doing this?
