Oh, Hello.

Sup guys, I've finally decided to start a profile here. I've been directed here many times before by search engines and have found many of the answers I've seeked; seems like a knowledgeable community.

For me, I have been into biking for quite a few years. I've toured from southern South America to the US of A post college. Once I got back I lost my zest for what I learned in school (CIS aka computer stuff) and had decided to pursue bike stuff instead. My girlfriend, who also toured in South America with me, and I moved from South Dakota to Charleston, SC so we could bike year round. She got a job as a bike taxi and I found employment as a bike mechanic.

We don't want to stay in one place for more than a year and are thinking of doing a coast to coast bike tour next summer while keeping our eyes open for our next relocation; I'm thinking Missoula, MO.

Hope to learn things and get to know some cool people here.

Colin

Do you mean Missoula Montana? If so, great town.

By the way, the abbreviation for Montana is MT. MO is Missouri, so if you're not careful, you might just have biked 1,000 miles out of the way! There are worse things, of course...
