    Sport activities, hobbies, adrenaline junkies!

    as winter is starting to close in, skiing and snowmobiling feeds my adrenaline rush!

    Sky diving is on my bucket list…. But right now I don’t mind waiting! Lol

    scuba diving locations, New England, Key West, Mexico, Cayman Islands, Belize, and my most favorite locations so far Honduras!

    What feeds your addiction?

    Don't think they have box lunches at the YM, and I don't care for swinging sirloin.

    I try to ride year round, here in the MD/PA area there might be a few weeks throughout the winter that I'm not on a bike.

    I've grown fond of the colder roads as the make backing the Vision into turns possible without really be out on the edge. New level of HELL YEA when you can power slide out of a u-turn that you backed halfway into on a 900lb heated sofa.

    Some people will do anything for attention.
    Live in the desert SW so I get much better weather than you right coasters.
    We still have cold enough weather so the roads will let you slide things around.
    The KP would let me back into corners and come blasting out stylin'. Never could get comfortable on either Hammer although you could just give them WOT and spin the rear a block.
    Haven't pushed the CR yet.

    Well I get to ride year round but I do have other interests.

    I like to fish but have not gone in a while. I need to get back on that. I used to go weekly but that was back when I had three day weekends. Made it much easier.

    My main hobby I do the most often is lift weights. Great stress reliever. I don't get to do dinner things like I used to before I hurt my back but I'm still lifting more than your average bear. Upper 400s on bench. Before covid I was basically a bench specialist and hit 515 for a equipped lift. Being under 500 pounds was an experience for sure.

    Then my latest thing is Jeeps. I've really fallen for them and actually just got back from a wheelin trip where I earned 3 Jeep Badge of Honors.

    Most already know that I'm into guns, knives, and snakes. Just found a little snake in my bathroom today. If you're a snake and wonder into a house this is the one to do it.


    PS- I've been skydiving. It was odd, different than I expected. After the first few seconds of free fall things just get calm. Your stomach stops that roller coaster thing and there is no real sensation other than wind. Then when you pop your chute it gets very calm and it's extremely peaceful.

    Tried the skydiving thing, had to make 5 jumps before you could jump without a static line. Wouldn't do a tandem. Nobody was doing tandems then anyway. First jump did my arch, made my dummy rip cord pull. Had so much adrenaline going I had to up a second time immediately so I could see what it was like.
    Finally was able to jump with a para commander, you could actually get some forward motion and maneuverability . This was before they used rhe ram air 'chutes.
    Lived aboard and cruised my own sailboat for 14 years. Still like to go to Ensanada and charter when I can afford it.
    Sometimes get to go to Guaymas as crew.

    A little over a year ago we bought a Polaris Ranger. We ride all over northern Michigan, but in Sept. we trailered to The Black Hills. We've been there many times on our bikes, but after four wheeling there, we'll never bring a bike back out there. We do enjoy the Ranger.

    Guns, primarily handguns, and practical shooting. When I hunt, Russian hogs are the game, and handguns are what I use.
