    New Member Introductions Thread

    Hey all, wanted to introduce myself before I started posting, I've been lurking and reading for a couple weeks... everyone seems pretty cool and laid back, like I am, and I love the website, good job mods, webmasters, etc.

    I'm 23, hold a BS and an MS from WPI and work for FM Global as a fire protection engineer. I currently live in the small farming town of Woodstock, CT in the extreme north eastern part of CT (thats extreme directionally, there's nothing else extreme about the town save for our bovine population).

    I started skiing 5 years ago as a freshman in Worcester. Learned at Wachusett and still ski there, cheap season pass, convenient, etc. Did the All East pass this year and skied K-mart and Mount Snow a lot, until my 2nd semester took total control of my life.

    Went for the All For One this year, and hope to further improve. Pretty good at carving groomers, did a little NASTAR, starting learning the bumps last year but still suck at them.

    I ski all winter and mountain and road bike all summer... just bought an '01 Audi S4 a few months ago and will have nice knobby snows for the winter so I can enjoy the drive almost as much as the mountains... also a vol. firefighter and been doin that for 5 or so years.

    So anyway, for all those that are interested, that's me. Hopefully can get in on one of these AZ gatherings... I also have one friend I always ski a lot with, I'll see if maybe I can get him on the board, and def. to a gathering.

    Skiing is my addiction.

    Thanks rivercOil, in case I feel like procrastinating at work I might do that...

    Sledhaulingmedic... yeah, I make my own life less fun being a firefighter and an FPE... kinda funny like that, but this was the only job I could find where I'd have the time to ski bike and still play with fire Where do you work? I was a FF in Auburn MA for two years while I was going to school and saw a fair share of medics between WEMS, and Patriot and Pathways who both ran ALS for us.

    Also for the mods... I wouldn't object to seeing a mountain biking forum a little later down the line if you think you have enough interested members...

    Just moved back to Maine this winter from the south, not the best year to start skiing again!
