Yes Yes

I know I've been slacking, but it's really nice out and I've been spending a lot of time on the river. I will write something, about something, soon. I promise.

In the mean time, enjoy a little of the world as I've been viewing it...


  1. Sweet! I used to canoe a lot in the Adirondack Mountains when I was a kid. I went kayaking for the first time last summer and loved it. Nice pictures, it looks a lot like the Chemung River here in NY.

    Bro, I benched 330 lbs for 3 reps then nailed 370 last week. All personal bests!

  2. Congrats man! that's a great lift. My personal best bench was 385lbs. But that was at the height of my power lifting. My bench was always my weak spot, but I could nail a squat! At 21 I squatted 405 lbs for a set of 8, free weights. But that was a long, long, looooong time ago. LOL

    I did go down stairs and hit the bench for the first time in about a year and a half the other day. Could still do 225lbs five times, which is about 10 lbs over my body weight, which made me happy considering how inactive I have been in the lifting arena.

    Those mountains are beautiful. I road out to Vermont on my Harley with my wife and a couple friends for the 4th of July years ago. Carved our names into the railing of the walkway at Texas Falls. road out of the mountains in the middle of a storm so bad I swear I thought we were gonna die. LOL

  3. Very cool Philo, yeah I hit most of my heavy lifts early 20's. At 225 my single rep max was 300 for bench, 400 squat, 500 deadlift.

    I've been caught in 3 corporate layoffs in the last 5 years, so I have started lifting again to maintain sanity. :)

    It's great going back after not lifting all the time. It's like starting out fresh, you make gains like crazy.

    Man that sounds great, we haven't been on a good trip in a long time. I have family in Maine, spent some time there when we first got married and loved it. We were thinking of moving up there, but at the time I had a good job here in NY, so we ended up staying here. The New England states are beautiful though.
