Cool!! With that in mind, I'll make it a bit easier for someone to decide if they want to risk a day in my company.
I'm a 51 year old white male. I ride my Mountain Bike, do a little mellow river running in my Kayak! (no extreme whitewater stuff) Used to do some bouldering and top rope climbing when I lived in Southern CA. 20 years ago! Still like the rock but won't pay to climb.
Don't drink anymore, same with drugs. (I don't have any
problem with drinkers, I just don't get in a car with them after they have, not when I'm sober and can make sure everyone gets home safe!) I listen to lots of different kinds of Rock & Roll. From classic to alternative. Like a lot of country too, from Old time Bluegrass & S#%$# Kickin' stuff to modern country! I really don't care for Rap! Same with Jazz & HATE Opera! (..not that I think I'll run into too many Pavarottii fans here!
) I smoke Cigarrettes! (Tobacco & Pizza are my two last vices) But I can try to keep that
to a minimum in the vehicle! (no promises)
I drive for a living,.. 25 years, No accidents on the job and No accidents ever
that were my fault! (two total- one L turn in front of me on my motorcycle in Laguna CA. and one getting rear ended at a stop sign by 16 year girl old on a cell phone) I take driving safe seriously. So to a few folks here, I probably seem like a bit of Fuddy Duddy! But, 30 some years ago I was a hell raisin' dope smokin' So Cal Boozer. so I'm not a complete
most important,... I LOVE SNOWBOARDING!!!!
I Quit even tryin' to ski 30 yrs ago cuz I sucked sooo bad at it. But I "Get" snowboarding. Started in Feb, got fewer than 4 weeks total ride time on the board and This past weekend I took a shot @ one of the black diamond runs at "Highlands"! Fell a lot, but managed to keep from winding up in traction! I was nervous my first time out this year about losing what little I'd learned last season, but to my surprise, I've actually improved some!!!! I'm still learning and need a bit more confidence before goin' flat out on the board,.. but I've only ever ridden on "late/early season" Icy, hard, crappy man made or frozen stuff! I can only imagine how much better I could get when I have a chance to ride a foot or two of real, fresh snow!!!
So,.. to that end, Don't care if your a Guy or a Girl,.. If we can stand to be in the same vehicle together for 2-4 hour rides in a day and can talk about boarding, or anything else for that matter,.. Lets find out if we can get more rides, in better snow, for less money in 2012!!!
