Totally awesome Elliot!! I can't wait till you make it up my way! But I'll see you at the burn first!

btw, I lost one more pound, bringing it up to 6 lbs!!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

This was the 44th annual race, so it is a pretty well established sport, yes. Next race Klamath Falls June 23-24, then Corvallis July 21-22. Also Longmont, Colorado, July 21.

I actually mean the pedalers.

I'll have you know I conquered that sand dune a couple of years ago on the Pear County Chopper trike! Kinetic Sculpture Racing is great fun AND good exercise at the same time. :D

In the form of what we call a "steak".

That's the first place I would look.

Is it necessary to go to Rangoon for such a delicacy?

There's always Italy. Somebody must be producing the milk for the mozerella.

just discovered this thread, jumping in to motivate/guilt/shame myself into getting more exercize.
Backstory: Cut Caffeine in May 2011, alcohol in July. Went vegan late september/early october 2011 and dropped a mens pant size (women's sizes are fickle and vain, I'm a 12/14/16 depending on who I'm wearing. Men's I'm down to a 34) Added in Dance Dance Revolution on standard-heavy for 15-60 minutes a day as exercise in December and dropped another size by February. Hit a plateau a few months back and have been slacking on the exercise too of late. I'd like to walk/run/jog, but I live in an area where I don't feel safe walking two blocks to get groceries for fear of regular street harassment (I walk anyway) I'm tentatively considering roller derby cause its a badass empowering kind of sport and I could use a dose of aggressive feminism. My local derby team has a bout Saturday evening so I'm gonna try to make it there and then maybe find a rink and skate on sunday if I think it looks fun. If not, there's always more DDR...

That's the plan, eventually. I've got the permit in hand, but selecting a gun and method of concealment is where I'm stuck. I'm not planning on carrying till I'm competent and confident with whatever weapon I choose, have a gun safe for storage at home, and know my state and local laws inside and out. In the meantime, I've got pepper spray on my keyring.

For light weight, you can't beat a Keltec 380.
About half the power of a 9mm though.

I strongly recommend the Pepperblaster.
I don't think it has competition.

Chime in on one of the gun threads if you have questions.

I can swim that well, but I'm clearly outclassed when it comes to carrying trees. :lol:

Okay, you handle the water sports and I will handle the log.

That don't sound quite right, do it?
