I said you could get some ROWING in

I was wondering what the hell you were talking about.

I had never heard of the town

I knew I had heard of Dana. My wife used to teach at a private school near the Quabbin, one of the dorms was named "Dana."

Here's a picture of the town.



It IS kinda freaky to think that there's whole towns under the reservoir. Think they took down or removed most of the buildings; wonder how much is left down there?

I'm interested to know how you'll pack enough beer for three days on a bicycle.

No, this is a (gasp) serious thread.

So in answer to all of you who PM'ed, Yes I am serious and Yes you can participate. But the only really practicle way to keep up on what is going on is to subscribe to this thread and participate by posting on the thread. Keep track of your progress and your miles. If we are ll in it together we can encourage each other and kick each other in the pants to get off the couch when we need it.

Is anyone capable of putting together an Excel spreadsheet so that we can keep track of guys miles and stuff. I tried to put one together for myself, I am running, swimming, skiing and biking these days and I wanted to keep track of everything and I just frustrated the hell out of myself in the end. I also wanted to keep track of basic fitness stuff like weight and resting heart rate, etc.

One other thing that shouldn't need to be said but times being the way they are it probably does.

This is a bike ride that my brother and I are going to do. We're going to try to raise some money for breast cancer research when we do it. Anyone who wants to is welcome and encouraged to join us. But by doing so you release both of us and Homebrewtalk.com from any liabilities for injuries, death, bad breath, hemorrhoids, toe nail fungus, the heartbreak of psoriasis or any other malady's that befall you while training for or participating in the ride. You should start with a call to your doctor and get his/her OK to do this. Get an OK from SWMBO while you are at it. If your wife takes off with the pool boy cause you are out on the bike every day off, I really don't want to hear about it. (I'll sit and drink a few beers with you and talk about what a rotten biatch she is but that's the extent of my responsibility.) By participating in this thread and joining us on this ride you agree to the above.

Now you guys know why all of the law schools I applied to returned my applications with a curt "Thanks but no thanks." Maybe I should have TexLaw review my legal disclaimer but I'm afraid he'd hurt himself laughing and sue me so I'll just leave it the way it is. You get what I'm saying here, we're all adults and responsible for our own actions.

I'll make some call later on to day to the breast cancer folks and see what they have to say. Now, it's off to the gym.

About all thats left is foundations
They even moved the cemetery.

Knowing where the foundations were would be key for some good fishing there though.
