New from Georgia

Well I'm new on this website and decided to do an intro.

I'm 24 and work for a Subcontractor of AT&T. Crappy job considering my primary work tool is a shovel, but it allows me to pay my way through school to become a radiographer. I have many hobbies but have mastered none.

I enjoy kayaking...

Motorcycling...


And of course mountain biking:
I'm not the one falling down. I rule and made it (thanks to lessons learned by my buddy)

Here I am riding with my buddy and his family (Daughters are 7 and 9) to end up crashing...

This is my border collie Riley who loves to go on rides...


I also play the Trumpet, guitar, and dabble in the Piano. I love shooting guns. I don't hunt but mainly cause I hate getting up at 4am to freeze my nuts off in a tree. I also camp, hike and do whatever it is I find fun.

I ride a Scott Aspect 45 and a Trek Discovery Edition (Not sure of the model cause I got it used) road bike. I also have a BMX bike that I raced from 12-15 and still ride occasionally.

I nearly killed myself on a BMX bike. Figured I'd add that. Busted my spleen completely in half.


I hope this works for an intro.

You definitely live life to the fullest ... and on the edge. That's quite the staple job.

Great looking dog.! I love Border Collies. One of the smartest dogs around. We have two Jack Russells that we'd love to take biking, however the only way they'd be able to keep up is if we carried them on the bikes.

Welcome to Bike Forums. I have a feeling you'll have some interesting stories to pass on.

Well I try to do what I can. This year I plan to get into some rock climbing. Nothing major being I'm in Georgia and we only have 1 true mountain, which you can drive to the top of in a car. But the outdoors is what thrills me. Other than messing with "Rock band" at some parties I haven't played a video game in probably 3-4years.

Oh yeah. I also play pool/billiards quite well. I moved pool tables for 3 years (Worst job ever created by man) and played years before that so I am fairly decent.

For me. If it gets me outdoors and in the woods I am down for it.

Welcome to BF.
Stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the locals in the Atlanta/Decatur thread. It's about a zillion pages long so you may want to breeze through it to the last few pages.
