See you all upon my return
Let me out this first and foremost since guys aren't the only ones who don't read people's profiles.
I rent a house in South Lake Tahoe, I am there some weekends but spend MOST of the time in the Bay Area.
I like cars (Subarus especially) and have done and enjoy the following:
Flying ultralights, drink a good beer, riding bikes, camping, coffee, concerts, cooking, dogs, family, football, hiking, jeeps, Jimmy Buffett, Knoxville, laughing, margaritas, motorcycles, movies, music, offroading, pets, photography, piercings, randomness, sailing, sarcasm, scuba diving, skiing, surfing (even though I suck at it) , sushi, tattoos, Tennessee, traveling
I am funny, smart, and passionate.
I started snowskiing almost at the same time I started walking.
My skis were a little bigger than the remote control for your TV, and Ive been hooked ever since. Been around the ski business my whole life too. My dad and mom worked at Ober Gatlinburg in TN where I started my habit. They split and my dad took a job as a rental tech at a ski shop in Knoxville. Made it to manager where he worked for 15 years. Now he is Director of Outdoor activities at Ober. Its weird going home and going skiing and getting treated like the bosses kid... better than the way I used to be treated as a punk kid who skied and boarded like an idiot (I was a brat but not dangerous).
Before I joined the Navy (5 years before joining the Coast Guard) I lived in Maine briefly and among a few jobs there one of which was following in my dads footsteps. I worked at Camden Snow Bowl as... wait for it... Rental Tech! It was a great job! I set up the skis for the learn to ski kids, and once all of them were out I had nothing to do till 5pm when they were done. My manager always let me take off and go skiing throughout the afternoon, while still on the clock.
Its been my dream to live out west and go skiing out here. I cant wait to explore!
