    Quote from IMScotty: “Glad he is having fun, hope he loses the weight. The first 20 miles are pretty easy, but he is going to reach some sections soon where at the rate he is going there is no way he can carry enough water to get through.

Years ago we were in Groningen and saw a parking lot at the train station with easily a few thousand bicycles. citylab.com/transportation/201…y-built-for-bikes/531246/ ” With the new green deal, bikes might be about the only mode of transportation left, especially if they are counting on high speed rail as an alternative.

  • Growing up we raised pigs on the side and butchered them, and there was a man my dad used to sell the lard to. He felt sort of guilty about it because the man was so big that he more waddled than walked, and if he had a doctor I am sure that would not have been on his prescribed diet. But hey it is a free country. Or at least it was back then. My parents grew up eating opossum and head cheese, but as a personal choice I ain't going there either.
