Who knew this was a thing?!  Most ski mountains have turned into year round resorts, and Gunstock is no exception.  They have a giant zip line course, a smaller adventure zip line and obstacle course, segway tours, mountain top yoga, mountain biking trails, hiking trails, a pond with paddle boards and other items, even a mountain coaster.  Simply put, it's a fun place to be anytime of year. The zip line is amazing and I had done it in the past.  That morning while the wife was doing the mountain top yoga, she found out they were holding a moon-lit nighttime zip line run.  Limited to one group of 20 people. We got the last spots. It wasn't just a…

Simplicity.That's what I love about excel sheets. I watch people make things far more complicated than they need to be in excel, but truly you just need it for keeping track of a few numbers and totaling them up.Me personally? My wife and I have been using the same excel sheet for 17 years now.  No lie.  Same spreadsheet.  It's actually been in an OpenOffice format now for sometime, but you get the idea - It's the same thing as excel.We started the excel sheet back on 11/26/2001We are currently on cell 16,032 and started on cell 10For those that don't use anything, here is a sample excel file that is actually modeled after one I use for work. It's…

Tonight was the last night for the Wednesday Motorcycle meet up in Milford New Hampshire. And what an absolutely perfect night it ended up being! After a couple of weeks of cold and rainy weather, today broke that repetition and the sun came out with temperatures nearing 80° Was a fine way to end this weekly tradition. Until next year!!

This year I participated in the DGR ride.  It's a ride to promote men's health - prostate cancer awareness, suicide prevention, etc.  Not only is it a good cause, but it's one where we get to ride on "vintage style" or vintage motorcycles.  Any excuse for me to  pull out my 1968 Triumph T120R. 1968 Triumph Bonneville The day started early and Paul and I hopped on my Triumph motorcycles and headed down the road for the meet up. Heading to Milford, NH where we met up at the Union Coffee Co.  They had a big part in putting this together and I've very thankful for them doing this.  Roughly 40+ people showed up on everything from 1938 Indian motorcycles,…

I don’t know how I pissed him off, but somehow the eBay God is angry with me. I imagine the eBay God resembles a person that was tarred, but instead of feathered, ran around a second hand store and came out covered in what ever was lying around. Atari games and all... So I put on this nice RC car that I built with all kinds of goodies with it.  Sell it for 1/2 its value.  It's a steal.  Sold in 10 minutes.  Do I get paid?  Nope. Guy asks if I can wait until next week until he gets paid so he can pay for it.  Listen, if you can't afford it now, you can't buy it.  You shouldn't…
