I was thinking, new people are joining the forum every day. They introduce themselves, and we get to know a little more about them. But they don't get to know anything about the members who have been around for a while. So maybe it would be a good idea to re-introduce ourselves on one thread, and tell a little more about ourselves. I know I would like to know more about some of the people here whom I know only by their posts...
I am a curtain wall designer for high rise buildings around the world (Curtain walls are the exterior glass walls). I moved to Portland about 1 1/2 years ago from Corvallis, Oregon, where I went to school. I love it here!! I live with my girlfriend and our two dogs. (Australian shepherd X Australian cattle dog, and a Corgy X Shepherd)
I have been vegan (don't consume animal products) for 6 years. I made the decision for ethical reasons, but now am enjoying all the health benefits that come along with it...
I've always been an aggro cross-country mountain biker, but I started commuting earlier this year, and am now riding my bike almost anywhere I go instead of my car.
I've become addicted to Bikeforums, and have recently begun using proper capitalization in my posts!!
