My dad pretty much told me his life story yesterday. He was born in Canada while his parents were traveling around North America to escape poverty/political violence in Spain. After graduating highschool in PA, he moved to Colorado and became a ski bum for 5 years. He lived in a tent as a whitewater rafting guide in the summer, and worked in a ski shop in the winter. He biked for 2 weeks to get back to Pittsburgh so he could go to college. After he got his degree, met my mom, etc, he started racing USAC cars. Now he is an cellular engineer and works for my home mountain in the winter.
How cool/awesome/badass are your parents?
