I've Been Tagged!

There I was, minding my own business over at Snakebite's, reading about how he had been "tagged". When I got to the bottom of the post, I was shocked to find that he had tagged me!

Being tagged means that you have to list some things about yourself that people may not know about you. In the case of this tagging, I must list five items. So here goes...

  1. I was born in Carson City, NV. I have lived and worked no more than 30 miles away from the spot of my birth my entire life. I raced BMX when I was 15, and got my first mountain bike at 19...a brand new 1989 Specialized Rock Hopper.
  2. In High School, I was the bassist in a Big Hair, Heavy Metal, Glam, Rock Band named Atomic Gypsy. See if you can pick me out in the picture. Extra Credit: In the same picture, identify Brent and Scott.
  3. I went to college for a few years, studying music and biology. I dropped out to pursue a rock band career with a band named BBQ'd Salad. Things didn't pan out, so I got a job cooking and delivering pizza, followed by a job filling orders in a warehouse.
  4. While attending college I met my future wife. We met in 1989, and got married in 1993. Kristy is now also my bestest riding partner! We also have a 6 year old mini cyclist.
  5. These days I'm a Computer Systems Programmer. The job pays well, and supports my bicycle habit.
Fascinating huh? Now I have to tag some people! The envelope please....

And the names are:

I think you need to start over, the instructions say to list 5 things that people might NOT know. Until you correct this gross error on your part, I do not consider myself tagged.

Cool!

The photo of the band is fantastic.

The best part about the band photo is that it was taken in Ash Canyon where the Lunch Rides are! Now make your guesses as to who's who...

BBQ'd Salad?? Did you guys play at that red bar near the University? LOVED THEM! They got me hooked on Social D. And ever since, I've been looking for that song about "Pinky Rings." lol

You don't know me, I don't know you, and I found your post by searching for BBQ'd Salad (thinking about the good ol' days), but it sounds like you're doing well and I'm happy to hear that.

Cheers!

Yep. That was us. That was the Little Waldorf Saloon! Those were some fun days for sure. Haven't seen the other guys for a decade or more!

Thanks!
