RE: QUESTION: You just received tracking! When did you order?
@Crashem I feel ya...got that yesterday. Apparently it's due to larger than expected cyber Monday orders.
My Formal Introduction
So here's my story.....
16 months ago I saw OW for the first time. As an avid snowboarder and wake surfer I was immediately intrigued. Soon the intrigue turned into obsession and I convinced myself that I will not have experienced life to it's fullest until I own a OW. At this point, I realized it was time to have a very series, potentially life changing conversation with my beautiful wife about what a superior life I could live riding a OW. It didn't go well...but I couldn't give up, I NEEDED OW in my life. Now listen, by no means am I rolling in dough, but I'm fortunate that money wasn't the issue here...it was more the principal and since I respect the hell out of my wife, I needed to find another way. And another way I did...I told her I was going to sell some "toys" I wasn't using anymore along with some household items and that money was going towards my OW. She bought in. So fast forward over a year later and I sold two bikes, two softball bats, an iPhone, an old longboard, used snowboarding boots, etc and I reached my goal.
So Thanksgiving night I place my OW order and can hardly sleep the next few days. I check in with FM on the following Monday and my expected timeline turns out to be mid Feb. F me.....I'm down and out, bummed, questioning my ability to survive the next two months. Then last Wednesday I'm lurking in this forum like I do most days and I come across @ShaunMPLS miracle post that he has a new OW for sale. I happily pay a small premium and he ships it my way the following morning. Oh and the premium, my Wife doesn't know.
As I sit here now, the UPS package is "out for delivery." I may not have waited for FM to ship me my OW like many of you did, but I've waited in a different way. I can't wait to ride this thing and I'm happy to be part of this community.
I'll continue to stare at my Nestcam until that big brown truck arrives...then I'm going home.
Shout out to @njcustom for hooking me up with a fender already. And to the rest of you who have showed me the ropes before ever stepping on the board.
