Alaska Trip in Review

Since I got into snowboarding I have tried to think of some awesome places to go snowboarding and sight-seeing. Near the top of the list was Alaska. So my friends and I decided to make that our big snowboarding trip of the year. We decided on the Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, AK. We started making our reservations in November. We wanted to make sure to take advantage of cheap airfare and early season specials the Alyeska Resort was having. We also jumped on Liftopia for some deals on the lift tickets. So overall the trip was relatively inexpensive. It was exciting to …

Excited About the New Year!

Yet another year has come and gone. As I look back on last year, I realize I had a lot of fun and a lot took place. I’m very happy and spent a lot of time with loved ones and family. Unfortunately I dropped the ball on some other things. Things that really aren’t a big deal, but things I had wanted to keep up on. One of which was this blog. I really thought I would have spent a little more time on it and come up with some interesting things. I had a lot of stuff going on, …

Nature Vs Nurture: Women Using Men

I always find myself thinking about the whole nature vs nurture debate. One aspect that hits close to home is the way women use men.

I think it is in most guys’ nature to want to do things and give things to girls they like. It may also be in women’s nature to know this and do things to string along guys to …

My Motorcycle History

I have always had a fascination with motorcycles. It started at a very early age. I remember having an electric-powered motorcycle when I was about 4 years old. It was the little toy ones that you plugged in and charged for a few hours. Then you could ride it for about 30 mins before the battery would run down. It of course didn’t go very fast, but it was still fun. As I got older I still kept my passion for motorcycles. We were never rich, so I was really surprised when my parents got me a dirt bike that …

On the Career Move Again

It hasn’t even been two years since I left work at AT&T, but it looks like I am switching work places yet again. After 12 years of thinking I would never leave AT&T I continue to surprise myself going for new opportunities. I am not one that usually goes out looking for change, but it seems that life has different ideas for me. I was really comforted by how secure my job was at AT&T. Although they had several rounds of layoffs while I was working for them, they usually did a good job of finding other positions in the company …

Working Out to Get Ready for Snowboarding

With snowboarding season fast approaching I have decided to actually do some workouts geared toward getting me ready for the season. I have been working out consistently to get into summer shape, but snowboarding will use different muscles and in different ways. Since I’m wanting to do more advanced riding this year, I figure it wouldn’t hurt to try to do things specifically for snowboarding. So to get myself ready to do some awesome riding and jumps this year I have added squats, dumbbell lunges, lateral lunges, box jumps, and wall sits to my workout. Since I’m not looking to …
