Yea, I often dream of doing it again, but I'll probably never be in good enough shape. I may do it on a motorcycle someday. i'll let you know when I get them scanned. I've been wanting to get a new scanner, so maybe this will make me do it.

A spare, some patches, spokes, a full toolbag, and a thumb for when it was beyond roadside repairable. Just outside Pittsburgh, Kansas, I had my rear wheel disintegrate and had to hitch a ride into town. The guy at the shop dropped everything he was working on and built me a wheel on the spot. The kindness of strangers was one off the most amazing things I discovered on this trip.*L*T*
Basically the same repair equipment here. We had four people in our group, so we shared the load. I missed 30 miles of the trip when my freewheel broke, causing my bike to be unable to coast. It didn't take long for my derailer to get snapped in half, so I had to get a ride to the next town. Otherwise, I started with my back tire in the Atlantic and finished with my front tire in the Pacific.What L*T* said about the kindness of strangers cannot be emphasized enough. I have story after story of ordinary people going out of their way to help us.

Played Cypress Pointe golf course. I am pretty sure I will be the only guy on here to do that. Even BG can't get on there....
Haven't played there, have a buddy with a hook up, but only in the winter and who wants to leave Palm Springs to go golfing in the winter in Monterey?Although I do play for 'free' at 150 golf courses listed here: Click on the locations tab on the leftBy free I mean after my membership dues and only twice per month

That's really cool. Did you ever get lonely during the trek? I mean, beside its being physically challenging, it must be mentally challenging too?

Immensely so. But I got into the introspective nature of my trek. Took serious stock of my life and where I was going with it. It was a transformative experience to say the least. The monotony of the road at times was ovewhelming. But, the nice thing about touring, as opposed to "going out for a ride", is the whole "point A to point B" aspect. Seeing things in micro instead of macro (i.e. seeing the trees instead of the forest). And the people I met along the way, people I still have friendships with, are what made the journey so rich. As well as the memories. I'd do it again if my body would let me. But unfortunately, I'm closer to 50 than 25, and no matter what I want, I have to face the reality that touring across the country with full gear is a brutal endeavor. Now if I could get my wife to follow me in a sag wagon.......... :club: :ts :4h *L*T*

I love the game of poker for the competition, the psychology, the never-ending quest to improve, the advanced and sometimes minute complexities not everyone sees when they play, and the enjoyment of succeeding after giving all your energy to reach a goal that may at first seem unattainable but that you find a way to make it possible.

this thread is such bragaments but kind of fun- got hit in the head with a 9-iron when i was 6, got 16 stitches, still have harry potter scar- won school and district spelling bees in grades 7 and 8, made final 3 in state in 8th grade lol nerdaments- went to d.c. as finalist in the voice of democracy essay contest in h.s. but got pwnt- went down on a chick in college with gum in my mouth and uh..lost it...she later mentioned she had to 'cut it out' and i immed thought of uncle joey- played a show and partied w mark and tom from blink before they blew up- played a show with travis from blink before he was in blink (he was in a band called the aquabats)- sang at a papal mass at st. peters in the vatican- sang at st. francis in assisi (also italy), church at the top of the spanish steps in rome, notre dame in paris- lost ~$250k in 1 second trading when they announced the reopening of 30-year treasuries and made most of it back after tripling down- made ~$20-50k in 1 second a few times on terrorism rumors in '04/'05- worked 48 hours straight then immed drove 12 hours to get to my grandma's funeral- rented a car and drove from vegas to chicago straight through solo only stopping for food/bathroom- doubled through john juanda in the wsop m.e.- composed and sold music for a bunch of commercials- lived with bizzle in vegas for a summer and lived to tell the tale
Too much amazing stuff in here. Finally decided to read. Literally have spent hours reading and have to call it quits at the halfway point. Looking forward to part two someday. Had to quote this one because the blink and travis w/ aquabats thing is just awesome, and I also have a harry potter scar. It was nice to see someone else shares the mystical powers.Thought(s): MBN holes in ones. I feel a bit empowered now that I've never shat myself knowing that so many good men have. Here's my late contributions:-Also owner of harry potter lightning bolt-Attended michael jordan basketball camp between 9-10th grade after my mom won it through a grocery store contest (autographed, framed jersey FTW) Also a team picture that placed me next to MJ and Eddy Curry was on our team. He was a 7-8th grader. He was already an inch taller than MJ at 6'7. Crazy.-Got to take BP/fielding before a few chi sox baseball games as a kid-Was on TV with Phil Laak and Antonio Esfandiari for a segment of their I Bet You show.There's other random stuff I'm sure.....but after reading many pages of tornado survival and chilling with monks at the most amazing location ive ever seen....everything i think of seems quite marginal
