Yeah, those pictures are almost 5 years old.

I don't have recent pictures where I'm not holding a bong, joint, or 3 foot long bud, and I've been warned not post that sort of thing here.

I'll take a picture of myself today, I guess I could stop smoking for 10 seconds or so....

Confidence is the most powerful tool in the male arsenal.....

Well in February 2007 I had an accident and broke my left wrist and didn't ride my bike very much. I walked a bit but mostly took public transport...and then went on this very grueling 6 hour hike up in the Alps in July...up to 2800 metres. Then I got a new bike, and got a membership to a health club and am really working on the cardio and muscle toning and strength, though not to be a Arnie of course. Really feel loads better and have trimmed down (not lots as I am taking it slowly and have not radically altered my diet but shifted it). Plus well, lots of hot women there. Not in the sauna or turkish bath though.

Well, I grew up in Arizona and worked there for awhile but then moved to Missouri.

I've pretty much toured everything from Missouri to the East Coast. Haven't toured the west too much though.

I've been to NASA, Disneyworld, Little Bighorn, Yellowstone, and Colonial Williamsburg in the past few years.

Or you could be mistaking me for a celebrity of American Chopper fame:



My hair isn't quite so long, though.

You should contact mikey and tell him you will be his stunt double. But they have to make a bike for you.

I was 5' 81/4" once, 146 pounds for nearly like forever and actually not bad looking.

Then I grew up

I appear to have shrunk vertically though. I'm barely 5'7". Where'd that 1 1/4" go?

Hey, this is the Armchair General forum, Paul. We wouldn't be Armchair Generals if we spent our time kicking in doors and jumping over walls.
