I enjoy ice climbing, rock climbing, winter mountaineering and backpacking. I prefer cold weather stuff. The colder the better. I climbed Mt Washington in January several years back. My climbing partners and I say it is easier to stay warm than to cool off. Tech gear goes a long way these days. I am hoping this comes in handy this winter for getting some good use out of the SS. We don't get too much snow down this way, so as long as the roads are clear, I plan to ride it as much as possible.

I've made some life changing decisions on in very short time span. I quit teaching high school and took a job in the oil field. I'd had all professional jobs in last 29 years then all the sudden I was working on an oil well site. Good money but very long hours.

Ahhhhhhhhhh Adult Disneyland. I have been there several times, not for quite a few years now. I think if I tried to live there for any length of time I would never be the same again.

From about the ages of 16 to 21 I couldn't get enough of driving down gravel roads in Iowa at 120 mph. It was almost like driving on ice but throwing up long clouds of choking dust. That was on biased ply tires mind you, and probably without much tread on them.

There's nothing like coming down and flying over a runway at 250 mph, 5 feet off the ground, then hauling back on the stick and SHOOTING almost straight up in the air. Once I met a Lear Jet coming down. We missed each other by mere feet. It seemed like inchs and happened so fast there was barely time to think.
