My Hood
 
I couldn't find the pics of Padre's training ride in Miami but let's just say that my training grounds are on the opposite end of the spectrum:D
Also I'd like to thank all of you guys and gals for inspiring me to get competetive this year before it's over.

So here's my rig waiting for me

Headed out my driveway

Past the Wakotomika, named after an Indian tribe we slaughtered here.

I bet you don't have the "honor system" in downtown Miami:lol3 There was a $10 bill in the jar to the left I thought about taking to teach him not to be so stupid:lol3

There's a big hill coming up and my bench mark in training is to make sure I can get up it in the big ring. Here's also a couple shots of why I haven't been competetive in the last year. Rolled a tractor over my leg 1 year ago :yikes snapped it in 3 places. I still have an 8" plate and 10 screws. :arg

So back to the hill, they never look like much in photos

My lungs are about to pop but I can see the top (i'm a poet and didn't know it):D

This is the Airey View Orchard. Several ADVriders have been here back when I had GoonFest. The owner, Holly, brought us out some apple jack to warm us up that day 3 years ago. She bought this property off her grandfather who inherited it from his father. She still operates it as an orchard.

Just a page earlier this is what he posted. You probably just missed it.



Yup, been losing about a pound a week now since I got really serious about it again last summer. Started out at about 280-something, I was 225 yesterday.

Biking really helped a lot this summer. :thumb

gambrinus 10-02-2007 01:50 PM

Dude, The 300lb Askel may have had stuggled with the ladies, but I don't see how the 225lb version should have any problems... walk into that bar and tell them all about the fight with the bear or hippo or whatever. Make it a pirate for that matter. :freaky :freaky That stupid Tshirt that says something about chicks dig scars.. it isn't all wrong.:evil :evil
