    ABOUT ME

  • Just a simple guy,started mtn biking in the mid 80's to cross train for motocross (which I raced until 2001),Army from 91-94,drove long haul trucks until being forced out of work for on the job injuries (which happened in 2001) in December of 2008,not allowed to work until deemed "legally disabled" in early 2011,now a house dad. On bad days with those old injuries,can barely walk,but on good days.
  • Cycling is more lifestyle than hobby,so: RC rock crawling/trail running tucks,anything outdoors (hiking,biking,camping,survivalism,etc,I might even throw a line in the water to fish once n a while),tinkering with cars/trucks (lowered,lifted,loud,fast,kustom,etc),smaller/simpler living,becoming more self sufficient,too many more to list (I have adult ADHD,so.....LOL :p )
