    I played some in college...my frat would go out and play another frat. Fun stuff, cost a lot however, well at least on my college income.

    Its a blast, haven't had an adrenaline rush like that since, but you can blow $100 in a day on it easy and that is just on paint.

    I wanted to do it, at least to the train station, but never could work out an appropriate way to do it while taking clothes.

    When I do it I have to plan a couple of days ahead of time. Take the clothes I am wearing on the day I ride to work a day early, take a shower at the school gym. Lots of problems.

    I know the pain. Was on my motorcycle and had someone pull out in front of me. I was doing around 50 in a 45 when it happened. Slowed down to probably around 35-40 before I hit the ground. Had a jacket (not a motorcycle jacket) and it got burnt into my skin, that kinda sucked haha

    Yea I never not wore my leather jacket when riding. Sweat dries quicker than blood.

    I haven't read the thread...will later... but I have a situation:

    I am a very skilled finish carpenter. Unfortunately the local economy is not friendly to my trade. However, through a series of situations I have suddenly found myself to be The Guy for furniture repairs and refinishing...especially with cane and wicker. This is a "situation" because I have no idea what I'm doing, know virtually nothing about furniture and even less about applying finishes. Still I accept the work, stumble my way through it and people happily write me a check. They don't even care that it takes me damn near forever to get to their job because my day job and other responsibilities take up SOOOOO much time. The Universe is trying to force me into business and it's scary as hell.
