  1. Ok the venue for the Fight Gone Bad 5 competition, benefiting The Wounded Warrior Project and Lance Armstrong Foundation is set for September 25 at 1:00pm. It will be held in the parking lot of the Whole Foods at Town Square. We will be competing with other gyms such as Crossfit 702, Iron Edge Crossfit from Mesquite and of course, my gym, Crossfit Las Vegas. This event will be sure to produce blood, sweat and tears and it would be awesome to get the Dumont Dune Riders community to come out and cheer some Warriors on during the toughest 17 minutes. For those of you who donated to may page so far, THANK YOU! For those who haven't, I'm asking, begging and pleading...donate to the great causes I am fighting for. 100 percent of the donations will go directly to help a wounded warrior returning from the battlefield, adjust back into the civilian world with new limbs, mental toughness help and so much more. My fund raising page is https://rapidgiving.com/fundraising/page/36...ight-gone-bad-5 and the DONATE button is at the bottom. This donation is 100 percent tax deductible. 6 more days until this event takes off, I'd love to see some of you out there cheering on the athletes/warriors. Thank you in advance ash

    Fight Gone Bad 5

    Fight Gone Bad 5 has now reached 6 COUNTRIES folks, please donate if you can. It is now being held in the parking lot of Whole Foods on LV Blvd/Sunset in Town Square. It's rumored that Fox 5 News will be there to cover the event. This is going to be a kick in the a$$! Hope to see some of you out there cheering on a bunch of Warriors battling it out to raise money for some great causes.

    Fight Gone Bad 5

    Yep I train with both of them, Lauren trains my kids in Crossfit Kids. They are great people!
  4. Well guys, Fight Gone Bad 5 is on the horizon for me. September 25, 2010 will be one day, one very BRUTAL workout at Crossfit Las Vegas. Among the charities that I'm raising money for is one that is very near and dear to my heart, The Wounded Warrior Project http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/. This day is sure to produce blood, sweat and probably tears. This is my donation page https://rapidgiving.com/fundraising/page/36...ight-gone-bad-5 and if anyone can donate, even if it's a dollar, it would be greatly appreciated. Here's the link to Fight Gone Bad 5 http://fgb5.org/ for a little reading. Fight Gone Bad is one of the CrossFit benchmark workouts. It was designed to simulate the time domain of a mixed martial arts bout of five minutes of work followed by one minute of rest. It has been used in 3 and 5 round versions. The workout first appeared on CrossFit.com on 1 December 2004. It was so named after BJ Penn, a professional mixed martial artist, remarked that it was like a "fight gone bad" when asked how it compared to a real fight. Thanks Ash
  5. So I get a call from the storage unit today and they tell me that someone had backed into my 5th wheel that's backed into a covered spot on the end. So I head down there and find that a guy who owns a big azz motorhome that parks next to me misjudged his spot and hit the trailer. It ended up crunching the front bedroom corner pretty good, knocked it off the blocks that the jacks are on and pushed it into the wall behind it, essentially turning the rear of the garage to become an accordion. Mind you, it pushed the trailer about 4 feet backwards and he said he "Just bumped it". Luckily he reported it, filled out a report and has insurance. So down to Johnnie Walker it goes next week. Total waste of my time to get it fixed..sonofabitch! I'll post some pictures tomorrow.

    From Russia with..

    The people there are just plain mean. They shake you down for money every chance they get. Their economy is far from ours, they are flourishing in a big way.
  7. Spent a few days out of the US but, Moscow was a first for me. The temps were hella cold, ranging from -7 to like 15 degrees for the highs. It snowed most of the time but there was one sunny day while I was there. I will never, ever say traffic is bad again! The traffic there is like LA during rush hour multiplied by 100! It took me 1h 10m to go 5 miles but there wasn't a single horn blowing or any crashes, just traffic. So here are some pictures I was able to snap. It sure is good to be home, no matter how many times I step foot back on US soil, the feeling is always the same..AWESOME! Me in Red Square Another one in Red Square Gotta sport the "typical" Russian hat in front of St. Basil's Cathedral Suits+Snow= Cold cajones! St. Basil's Cathedral Me in front of Lenin's Mausoleum Academy in Red Square Just Friggn' COLD!
  8. I just wanted to wish all you DDR peeps a Happy Thanksgiving! Although we never go to D for T-day, I think next year we are going to start a new tradition in our family. I just got a new turkey fryer (NO oil required) it works off infrared and I don't know how it does it but, it cooked a perfect 20# turkey today that was the best I have ever had. Now that I have that little toy in the tool box, I think T-day at D will be very easy! Anyhow, I hope you all had a wonderful and safe day. This weekend, the toys get their yearly pre-season treatment and I get 4 days out at Dumont December 4-7 :B :B

    Rape-Safe Seminar

    Try it now, don't know what happened.
  11. I wanted to put this out to all my fellow DDR peeps. On November 22, hosted by Crossfit Las Vegas, Tony Blauer from Blauer Tactical Systems will be putting on a Rape-Safe Personal Safety Seminar. Below is the link to the event. You need not be a member of Crossfit Las Vegas to attend this seminar. The world we live isn't getting any better and I for one love my wife enough to dish out the $150 so that she can get some training on getting out of a bad situation. http://www.crossfitlasvegas.com/calendar.p...r_month=2009-11

    Okay so I get a call at 4:30pm today from my foreman. He says that someone had crashed into my work trailer and my F250 that was parked in his driveway. My foreman was pretty pissed off and after I calmed him down, I headed that way to see what all the hub bub was about. Well when I show up, this is what I see and to be quite honest, I got pretty pissed off too! It seems that the driver (in his late 70's) fell asleep going down a residential neighborhood road in excess of 50mph. He took out an entire block wall before taking out my foreman's block wall, my work trailer and moving my truck about 15 feet sideways. At what point do you at the DMV office say, I think it's time to take away the driver's license? Not only did he take out all that stuff, he also took out the basketball hoop that was on the sidewalk. I can't even imagine if the kids were outside playing some ball when this happened! Thank God for PS3 and X-box 360 at this point. So without further Adieu: And just to give you a good idea of how far it moved the truck, it was parked beside the trailer!
