So I was just curious where everyone lived, their age and what they do for a living?

I guess it all started cause i am wanting to move out of the Chicago area but have a good job but want to move somewhere and have a big company. might give me a good idea what the rest of the MC crew does

-Im 23 years old
-Live just a bit north of chicago
-Compensation Analyst at Kraft Foods
-I am currently looking for my first MC

I would love to move somewhere warm like cali or Fl where i can be outside most of the time.

- Grew up in Long Beach CA now living in South East Alabama!
- Retired from the Army after 24 years with 80% disability
- Started my own company and work about 10 hours a month :D ( I don't "need" the money)
- I'm currently looking for some Sunshine!


I'd never move back to Calif. To much smog, crime, gangs and too many ex-girlfriends!

And I'm bored to tears so I spend way to much time on this site! And I like quiet walks in the park, sipping wine and my favorite color is blue.

Hey Coz, I grew up in North Long Beach, 52nd and Orange Ave and went to Jordan High. About as close to NLB and Compton as you can get. One of my ex's went to Wilson and my wife went to Milikan. I learned to water ski in the Long Beach Marine and I remember the Pike! Started going to Parker and Havasu when I was 17 or so. I remember jumping off that 80 foot cliff at Buckskin State Park and passing out in the dirt camp ground, Ala Villa?

The other reason I wont go back is traffic. When I was a kid you get out to Riverside in 40 minute on the 91 on any given work night. Now, what 3 hours?

I still like long walks on the beach... lol

Hey Coz, I grew up in North Long Beach, 52nd and Orange Ave and went to Jordan High. About as close to NLB and Compton as you can get. One of my ex's went to Wilson and my wife went to Milikan. I learned to water ski in the Long Beach Marine and I remember the Pike! Started going to Parker and Havasu when I was 17 or so. I remember jumping off that 80 foot cliff at Buckskin State Park and passing out in the dirt camp ground, Ala Villa?

The other reason I wont go back is traffic. When I was a kid you get out to Riverside in 40 minute on the 91 on any given work night. Now, what 3 hours?

I still like long walks on the beach... lol

Jordan high these days is a very dangerous place :D I can say I've probably done a few thousand laps in the ol marine stadium since the 70's and when all my friends would not take their boat in the salt I'd say enjoy your stay at home, I'm going skiing...and when my kids started showing up it was boarding (pics from the 90's) I started going to Parker in the 70's and we've owned a house up by the dam since 1985.

I got married and moved out to Yorba Linda in 86 when the 91 wasn't to bad but by the time I left in 06.....forget it!....yes, a 3 hour drive from LB to Riverside....ON A GOOD DAY!

Back to the thread, I'm a 29 year old :rolleyes: General Contractor from Arizona with a 98 PS 205.

Willowtree its hard work no dream (not always worth it) but I'm finding while sitting around for the last 4 weeks doing nothing (heeling my 2 broken knees) that I need to slow down a bit. Never been to Venice but here its nice. When I'm down there its 100% family and condo repair time so we dont get chances to travel around much.

the really fast V-drives on our local lakes. Those boats could run 80 mph and up. I spent a year and a half in the Chicago area when I was in my mid-twenties so I know exactly where you are coming from. I put an ad in the Wall Street Journel to get out of that area. It worked. Good Luck!!!

Great Thread I was wondering the same thing but did not know how to ask.

Do you think any of us have crossed paths in our work and not known it? I order alot of material across the country and wonder if the person on the other end of the phone is a fellow TT Member.

We should have a 'sign' so that only we know each other?

You ever go check out the Boblo ski shows?

I went to Boblo Island when I was a kid and took my kids there when they were young. Never saw any ski shows. Did you know they closed the park, sold the island and built houses/condos. They made the whole thing private and pretty much a gated community.

We used to hang out at Chrystal bay until the OPP and every other townie cop saw it as a revenue generator and started writing tickets and impounding US boats. Now the place is empty all summer. Too bad, used to be a great place to hang out.

With all the new rules and regulations about crossing the border all but a few US boaters stay clear of Canada. My mother in law still has a place outside Colchester on Lake Erie so we still get out to the river a couple times a year.

Mostly the St. Croix River, St. Croix Bluffs launch is only 15 minutes from home. We also get out to Lake Elmo 5-6 times per year. We go to the Croix during the week and very early on week-ends, the park her (at Kinnie) and wait the crazies to go home then go out and ski/board again. How about you?

I'm usually on Bald Eagle, but I am on the St. Croix fishing all the time. I love the launch set-up at St. Croix Bluffs and always have a season pass. My son was bugging me to take him out on the river but it never happened last year. Certainly will this year. Will have to keep my eyes open for you.

Is Osoyoos a good lake?? I heard it was pretty shallow?? Was looking at buying a summer home there, but think I am going to settle on Sicamous instead.

You'll be better off in Sicamous. Oosoyoos is nice and warm, but WAY too busy in the summer. You can't even sneak over to the American side of the lake anymore because they'll turn you back. The north side of the bridge can be pretty rough. We stopped going a few years ago. The TUBERS would start at 6:00 am!

The Mara side of Sicamous can be windy and busy, but at least you can head through the channel and find a good ski spot on Shuswap.

We've found a cabin we rent down the Salmon Arm between Tappen and the city. LOVE it there! Sicamous is just up the arm... Maybe we'll see ya. :D
