Some snapshots of my new already dirty bike Ver. S-works.

Never got around to photographing it before I rode it…. still only been on one outdoor ride and it rained most of the time (and it was cold and I got the sniffles).

Not everything on the bike is set up completely correctly yet. I want to do a few more outdoor rides before I finish the fitting process with my coach.

When building this bike I wanted to start with the best frame I could, get aerodynamics as good as I could afford, rotational mass down 2nd, and translating mass down 3rd. I paid $4320 out the door after Cost+13% pricing, tax, and got 12 months 0% financing.

How do you make money, doing what you love?

So how do these guys on the base jumping videos, bear grylls (pre-tv show), and the other randoms I read or hear about doing stuff for charities and such make money? I mean the gear, traveling, and time it takes to achieve and train up for all of this stuff takes alot of $$, how do they make money off of it?

They did what they loved for years unpaid whilst doing something menial to pay the bills, kept working hard and took risks. Eventually one paid off.

Exactly. Professional climbers are a good example. Pick up "No Shortcuts To The Top" for an inside view.

anyone snowshoe?…

we’re supposed to get a lot of snow this weekend so I want to hike a local mtn trail (Baden Powell) and ride down on my snowboard…

problem is I’ve never snowshoed before. I figure I can try and rent some from REI. So I’ve been reading there FAQ about them.

What type of snowshoe should i go for? Should I hike in my actual snowboarding boots or in my gore tex hikers? (I’m going to have a 42 liter pack on me possibly)

anything else?

It is like walking, but slower.

So I’m starting a running club at my shool. v.Any suggestions/how should I set it up

So a friend and I are planning on starting a running club at University of Houston and this is my first time organizing anything like this…. I was wondering if you guys can give some insight on how I should organize this. Also give me any potential ideas and etc. on how to make it successful and fun for everyone.

So far this was what I was thinking…
-Small one time members fees (just to cover club t-shirts or whatever)
-Fund raise money for societies (American Cancer Society, Leukemia, etc.)
