I remember the very first time I ever went mountain biking. A friend gave me a 10 year old Walmart Mongoose bike for free.
True, this is an absolutely horrible bike for a true mountain biker, and It lasted me less than a month before it ate the derailleur within the spokes of the rear wheel, but I was absolutely hooked on the sport of Mountain Biking!
I bought a $250 upgraded, bells and whistles, Mongoose bike from Walmart again. This one lasted me two trips out on a trail before the bearings went out in the wheels. Once I began my quest into REAL mountain bikes, riding became a passion… and addiction.
Add this to the fact that I love to hike to places less traveled by others, climb shit that seems impossible, and getting my children out with geocaching, I make the argument I BELONG outside.
I like learning and practicing wilderness survival skills that could help me when stuck in the wild as well as basic first aid.
I love the other sports, but I live to ride! I dream about it when I am working as an Industrial Electrician and Project Manager. I think about it when I am lifting weights in the gym (keeps me fit and looking great).
All I need is a trail, a taco, and a beer, and I will be eternally happy.
Everything I do revolves around being outdoors, and I want others to experience it, so I started Achieving Adventure to:
