Hi, I just found this place, it looks like a lot of fun. Somehow, even though I commute 16 mi. daily on my RockHopper, I never think of it as a hobby or an interest, its just part of my life. Its how I stay fit, solve problems on the way to work, stay in touch with the world and the elements, avoid stress, and start and end my work day. I wouldn't want it any other way.
I do have things in my life I consider hobbies and interests: home shop machinist starting to learn CNC, low brass musician in the San Jose Wind Symphony, Abysinian Cats, California native plants & horticulture, a 1964 Porsche, and a wonderful family consisting of my wife, 30 yr. old daughter and Fredy the cat.
I'm a California native, grew up in Carmel, live on the slopes of Mt. Toro on weekends, and live and work in San Jose during the week.
