    Your other passions

    Outdoor activities, anyway; setting aside music, food, beer, etc. In the last few years, mountain biking has become the activity that I'll pick over all others when offered the choice. Most of the time, at least.

    My other favorite activity has to be skiing, and fortunately I don't have to choose between skiing and riding that often.

    Views don't suck, either.

    One of my favorite runs:

    I like XC skiing too. I have skate skis, touring skis, and big touring skis mounted with touring Telemark bindings. While I enjoy going out to skate some groomed tracks, I'd just as soon climb and descend the same hills I ride on my bike.

    It takes a bit for me to overcome my initial resistance to taking a bunch of time out to go backpacking, but I have to admit that once I'm on the trail, I love it. Backpacking really was my first outdoor passion. Again, the views don't suck.

    Although I don't own a raft, most of my friends are boaters and I've done a number of awesome multi-day floats. The spring runoff here can be pretty epic, too. That's why I like reading Mikesee's posts about packrafting with bikes so much.

    Grand Cayon camping:

    And hole-punching:

    I had a kayak for years, but I eventually sold it. I figured that when I was declining invitations to float in order to go ride, I could get some bike upgrades out of it...

    Someday I'll buy an inflatable, though. IKs look like a lot of fun.

    For a day on the water, it's pretty hard to argue with tubing:

    And the most basic passion is just spending quality time with my dog:

    Started snowshoeing last winter. Not quite a passion, yet, but I hope to do much more this year.

    Where was the train pic taken? Looks like UT, but could easily be anywhere in the CO, AZ, NM, UT area.

    just outside of verdi, NV.

    when i have the means, i drive from SF to roseville, CA to have a look at UP's yard there.

    then, i usually try to locate an eastbound train in colfax, CA or alta and follow them into nevada sometimes. i've driven from SF to where US 395 meets the 80 and back to SF in one day chasing trains.

    i think this is the same train just after crossing the 395 in nevada.

    My bad; I'm an infrequent visitor to the Passion forum so I miss a lot of threads.

    When I was growing up (6-12 years old) my family had sailboats on the Potomac and then the Chesapeake. Wrong 6 years of my life, I'm afraid. I was just getting into it when we sold it.

    I've been hooked on snowboarding the past 2 winters, I'm impatiently waiting for the white stuff to start flying. Living within a dozen ski resorts 2 hours or less away I'll split up my weekends boarding one day then snowbiking the other. I used to get bored during winter, not any more
