Hm, I do about as much sports as I program... The rather marginal sport of ski-orienteering is my favorite. It is really concentration intensive, there is a high pace. I've been pic of the week on Norway's largest Orienteering news site: http://www.o-nett.com/tiki/tiki-browse_image.php?imageId=212

So, I picked Snow/ice on the poll. But I do a lot of orienteering too. Have a look at http://www.learn-orienteering.org/. That'll become a wiki based on my AxKit::App::TABOO module some day... :-)

I've done some mountainbiking and triathlons too, as well as the occasional street-running relay.

I'm not so much of a rock climber, though I have done a couple of alpine climbs, I like it more on ice. I've done some glacier stuff. That's rather nice. And I've been to about 6050 meters in Peru. I think we were very close to 20000 feet, but I didn't think about it at that time... Story at http://www.ausangate.kjernsmo.net/.

Uh, that was enough ego-boosting for one morning... :-)

    [1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
    [Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
    [Corion]: 1nickt: On Sunday maybe 10cm of snow fell, and the airport closed, and the trains stopped running etc :) It always comes as a surprise that snow falls here during the winter...
    [marto]: 1nickt, no snow, just some ice on the roads and the usual idiocy associated with humans and driving in less than ideal conditions
    [1nickt]: Corion I am trying to keep an open mind :-) Or at least, go with the flow. marto yes I saw som photos of lorries overturned on country roads, and wondered why they would have been driving fast enough to have that happen!
