Snowboarder Living in His Tundra is Now an Olympian

"The longer that you live with less you realize the less that you actually need."

Justin Reiter is a professional snowboarder who had a dream of competing in the Olympics. NBC Sports has described him as the "best US Alpine snowboarder in the last two World Cup seasons." Sadly, he missed out on the last winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC, as he was recovering from surgery. He could only lay there and watch the action on TV as his Olympic dream faded away. Today, however, is a different story. Reiter is now fully recovered and ready for action.

He’s just been chosen as a member of the US snowboarding team for the upcoming Sochi games, and while in training, Reiter lived in the back of his Toyota Tundra pickup truck. He’s even posted a few pictures on Instagram of his home, stating that "In the back is the bedroom and lounge, all inclusive. A lot of people would probably go nuts over this, but I think the longer that you live with less you realize the less that you actually need." Some real words of wisdom right there.
