I think I just figured out what my midlife crisis is going to be: SNOWBOARDING!

I've been watching the Olympics and it looks like a lot of fun. I was a skateboarder/surfer when I was a teenager (I was even sponsored by a local bicycle shop) and I know how to ski, so I figure the learning curve won't be too difficult.

So I told my wife, and she said that as long as it wasn't a woman 10 years younger than me, my midlife crisis can be whatever I want.

So with that subject in mind, what do you want your midlife crisis to be?

Thats what I thought too. :shakeshead:

Snowboarding is HARD. Cutting is way different than skiing, but similiar to skateboarding and I'd imagine surfing.

I could cut with my body facing into the slope, but if it was my back I'd just end up falling and turning around.:blush:

Well, I know I can still skate (I showed my oldest nephew how to ollie and do kick flips a couple of years ago), and it had been about 15 years since I rode a board, and I could still do it.

I figure it was do this, or start my own fight club in the basement of MCL Cafeteria.

:laugh: Because of that last statement, I can't wait to be in the middle of my own midlife crisis. It's now given me the will to live the next 20yrs.

The falls are harder, too. At least for me.

Why not go one for one your own age? or even better one nine years younger? :eyebrow: :eyebrow:

The state of Virginia may have issues with me approaching 14 year olds.

Well, at least until I get around the areas close to West Virginia........

Wow. I knew there was a loophole.
