Where is everyone at in life?
« on: May 27, 2020, 06:13:13 PM »
Where has everyone made it too in life?

Alex, Did you ever get LA?

Paranoid, Hows the kiddo and wife?
 
Blue, Have you grown up?

sokoloka, you till in the RX game?

Dick, hows the VW and FLA?


I went to UTI in 2011 and moved to Dallas in 2012. Been working as a Heavy Equipment Mechanic ever since. Met a nice lady and got hitched in 2015. Bought a Harley in 2014. We bought a 6 acre ranch 2 years ago and have been keeping our 3 horses on it.

How is everybody doing?

Had an ex who left like 5 years ago unblock me and want to catch up recently which made me realize I've done nothing with my life since then besides acquire more cars and not finish the project I just barely got running when she left lmao.

Same job and apartment for over 5 years now, really sick of a lot of the bullshit around the job even though I get to make some cool shit. 6 cars - two of which are on the road fully legally and reliably despite being from the 90s in the rust belt, 4 project cars - two of which run and drive yet need more work and two of which don't even have motors. 3 of these cars I plan to keep for the rest of my life.

No credit, no future, no savings, fucked up back but I have 3 BMX bikes and still ride whenever I can. Broke as shit but I've been living 100% on my own after my roommate moved out last fall and all my bills are paid so I can't complain too much. 30 is approaching too quick

sokoloka, you till in the RX game?

Still in the spine implant game, 12 years strong and counting.  Started my own company at the end of 2016 and went full time working for myself in early 2017.  Recently turned 33, still in sunny San Diego, always trying to figure out what moves to make next.  Getting somewhat burnt out on the grind but figure I need to keep making hay while the sun is shining.  Overall life is good!

Jealous of the patch of dirt you got yourself!  Have to pay through the nose for a postage stamp out here.  Missing the vibe this place had!  Still check in monthly when I remember.  Wish we could get BG to pop off again.

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

When's the best time to plant a tree?  20 years ago.  When's the second best time?  Today. 
You got this shit homie.

Wife is good, she is a bus driver for a local school district. My older daughter will be 4 in October, and my younger daughter will be two. Both are sassy little things with big attitudes. I work as a cement lab tech in the day, and doing valet trash at night so I'm working pretty much all the time. trying to ride most Saturdays. How are you?

Kinda hard to plant a tree when the soil is shit and there's no rain. Maybe I should try a cactus instead...

I think there were other Blues in the mix on here, but incase this was about me... I'm a wedding videographer these days, and whatever other photo/video stuff I can scare up in between. I haven't been able tor ide for a few years due to plenty of problems with my body and a few with my mind. Not sure what about me was less grown up than the rest of us were 15 years ago but I'm a few concussions deeper so I may just not remember... that is, if I'm even the Blue you were asking about.

I always have the thought that a small MFBS group should continue on somewhere other than this site, as it's bound to go dark one of these days, but never get motivated enough to make it happen. I do keep up with the guys who are on Instagram though (add me if you're on there and I don't know it, pnwpedal).

I'm still doing the work thing, landed a new PM job this year and looking forward to some stability. Wife is also working and we have our hands full with our almost 5yo crazy little girl. Same suburban house that's due for some work this year ($$$), a couple different cars, and still have the bikes. I'm riding MTB mostly these days but will take the 20" out for a spin when the weather is good.

As much as I loathe facebook, that would probably be the easiest option. Or maybe a private subreddit?
