This is not my house

I am not sure what I am doing wrong but this is not my house, apparently this is a picture of the half-ass actor John Travolta's pad...

If this were a picture of my house it would not need to be taken from the air. the street would work...


Well another weekend is upon me. This is going to be one of those boring weekends. Melissa is working this weekend and it is suppose to rain all weekend. So it is looking like a long weekend on the couch either reading or watching movies. I have 5 movies at home and I am sure they will all be watched by 8pm Sunday night. Next weekend the 2007 baseball season starts. I am really looking forward to it. Melissa and I are going to the home opener with 48 other of her co-workers so that should be a fun time. I am getting tickets tomorrow for 8 games taking us through the end of May I believe. So that is the extent of my fun for the weekend. God I am a loser. My buddy Shad emailed me today and said that him and his buddies are packing up the car and heading out to the Big Horns to sled for the weekend and then heading back on Sunday night. I really wish I had crazy friends like that, I would love to go on a major road trip for the weekend to ski or something. So I am jealous... Hopefully I will live.

New Ride

Well I purchased my new bike the other day and have put about 12 miles on it so far. I ended up getting a 2006 Specailized Stumpjumper. It is a pretty nice ride. When I went to get it the person that helped me pretty much talked me into it. She was saying that since I was looking at one model that I should consider the Stumpjumper, because it has way better components on it. Which makes send to me. And it was only $10 more. So it turned out to be a no brainier. I have attached a picture of my bike. I am looking forward to taking it off road, since I have not been able to do that quite yet, all of the trails near my house are still wet. Other than that not much is new at all. Baseball season starts next week so that will be fun. Melissa and I are going to the Twins home opener which will be fun. Hopefully they will be able to win. More later.

Ski season is over

So with mixed emotions I officially announce that ski season for Melissa and I is over, it is suppose to be 62 degrees for the next 3 days. I am a little bummed because we had such a crappy winter, no snow until early March, if we would have had a normal winter I would be ok with Spring being here. I am hoping that next winter is better for us. We are thinking about buying season passes for Lutsen next year. We had a lot of fun skiing up there the couple times that we were there, even they had a crappy season, not much snow up there either which is really rare. I am hoping they get slammed next year and we can get up there in December instead of February like this year. Melissa bought a pair of powder skis for next years trip to Big Sky, we are planning on getting back out there and spending an entire week in the bowls, playing in the pow. So I will be on the hunt for powder skis as well early next spring. But now I am focusing my attention on baseball and mountain biking. We bought a 20 game package of season tickets for the Twins this year and I am looking forward to another season of baseball. I am also in the market for a new bike this spring. I think I am going to upgrade my mountain bike to something a little better, I really want to ride the trails by my house at least 2 times a week. I think it will help in my quest to ski Liberty Bowl next year at Big Sky, which is a run that comes from the top of Lone Peak. From what I understand it is just a beautiful run because you have a 360 degree view of everything from up there. And on a clear day I guess you can see the Tetons in Wyoming. So I really want to be a good shape for that. But anyway bikes are really damn expensive and it looks like you really can't get anything good for much under about $750. So I am going to sell my current bike first before taking the plunge on a $1000 bicycle. Other than that I am glad it is Friday, I am ready for another weekend off. Not very much on the fun ticket for the weekend, just some relaxing and I plan on firing up the old BBQ... Stay tune for more good times.

Ok, so I won't really bore you with all of the techie details about why I haven't posted for a long time. But it had something to do with having my gmail account which is attached to blog 1 hacked. UGH! And then not getting any help whats so ever from google. From the little research I did after the hacking it looks like quite a few peoples gmail accounts were hacked and it also sounds like people aren't real happy. So, after much fighting and tried to get things reset, I said screw it and started My Life II which is what your reading now. I guess I will have to come up with a snappy secondary title, like My Life II "The beginning of the end." or My Life II "Bacon and eggs for breakfast." But that obviously is still a work in progress. If you are new to my blog please click on my profile and have a look at blog 1. I put a lot of time and effort into it and there is some good stuff out there... Since we last spoke, I have skied out west at Big Sky and Moonlight Basin, which included 4 out of 5 powder days. It was amazing!!! I have attached a picture from the start of "The Bowl" I made a mockery of powder skiing but had a blast and lots of laughs as I fell in the 12-14 inches of cold smoke, freshies, POW. It was a beautiful thing. We had a great time skiing out west and are already planning on going back to Big Sky again next year. With the late start to the ski season for us we ended up having an amazing year. More skiing stuff later. Enjoy my new blog...
