    What does everybody do in the Summer?

    Does everybody keep after the skiing or do you diversify a bit? Myself, I started paddling a few years ago and that has taken over the mtn biking until the water runs out in CO. Just wondering, it is getting warm here in Boulder and the water is rising.

    Working (as usual)
    ****
    Fly Fishing,
    Biking,
    maybe a little bouldering here and there,
    I'm also planning on hitting the weights a little more and running more than in summers past.

    Mostly staying busy, getting ready for the baby in August, having some fun, being outside.

    Normally I'd spend it riding my road bike, playing golf and laying in the pool in NJ.

    This summer will be spent in Palo Alto, going to classes 3 days a week and drinking heavily in beautiful NorCal.

    Some of us go back to being dentists full time while the rest of us take dental summer school classes. It's a big rat race.

    What does everybody do in the Summer?

    I complain about the weather

    I am a teacher so I have my summers off to PLAY I usually spend a great deal of time mtn biking in the summer, working on home improvement crap (oh yeah!), and traveling around the world. Last year I went to Turkey and Bulgaria, and this summer it's Argentina for some skiing!!! I do a lot of traveling in the summer for mtn biking and just for fun. Last summer it turned out I was home on average about 2 days out of every week. This summer I intend to ski a bunch on top of my usual stuff!
