    You win $1 Million dollars. First thing you buy is:

    . . . land in the mountains. Probably in the Sierra's.

    Rules:

    1) Paying off debt isn't buying anything
    2) Don't say a bike. You've already got one.

    Go.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    A home in my hometown of Santa Cruz.

    That would wipe out the entire million.

    A million doesn't go as far as it used to. First thing i'd do is put it into a cd or something to give myself time to think. Maybe do that thinking on a vacation destination. Buying an expensive house, car whatever could just put you in more trouble because of upkeep if you don't use it to somehow boost your income. It would be a life changer for sure, but 5 or 10 mil now we're talking. lol
    Round and round we go

    I would buy land in my backyard and convert it to a mtb riding ground for spring / summer / fall and skiing for the winter. I'll be charging a nominal fee for people who would like to check it out, thus slowly realizing some profits and getting returns on my initial investment.

    I'd open up a bike shop/nude bar/massage parlor/cigar shop and spend an awful lot of time there.

    Yeah, and it'd be pretty small too! Just like where I live (Santa Monica)

    A house near some world class mountain biking. Utah? Pacific Northwest? I'd have to see where I get the most bang for my buck. Then pay bills...

    I'd pay my mom's house off for her. Then, I'd buy myself a modestly priced cafe racer. After that, can I pay off my debt?

    Buy a modest place in/near Bend OR, and maybe open a brew pub as well. Pay for kids' college.

    Fully fund my IRA, including all the catch up provisions.

    Invest in a well diversified portfolio, emphasizing steady income.

    Then upscale my lifestyle across the board instead a single impulse purchase.

    2013 Cummins dually done up like a big boy. 10-12" lift, subframe, 38s-40s, tall as I can get and be narrow enough in the back, axles and gears, straight pipe to two 8" miter cut stacks even with the top of the cab, chip, bigger turbo and injectors, build the trans, ranch hands, and a bunch of fuel. That'll be 100-120k, throw the rest in some decent mutual funds and my bills and my future kids' educations will be taken care of

    Sound BADASS, but's that's about it. What, exactly, is a "big ol truck" like that actually good for?

    My buddy has a stock Cummins Ram. He pulls his big fat boat around with it.
