I'm gonna start working in my bucket list... I figured since I turned 30 it's time to take advantage d the time I have left. I am no longer young and dumb. Lol now that I have reached the "wise years" it's time to wise up. Lmao any of you gents participate in Scottish heavy events?

    The Highland Games on Grandfather Mountain NC is about 15 minutes from where we live. If you ever attend contact me and we will have a cigar. I have a bucket list also and am working it down. Be 68 in a bit and I keep adding stuff as fast as I work it off.
    The Native Peoples of the Americas gave tobacco to the world.

    never been to them, but there are several Highlands festivals around the mid-valley. Old coworker's husband used to be big into it, used to wear his kilts to work for a whole month before the festival. I think there's a pretty good one over in Newport too.

    Wow. I'm kinda a moron... The reason I asked this originally and the whole purpose of this thread... Which I didn't even mention in my original post. I am starting training this comin Monday. I will be doing a full weight management program to drop my total weight and then I'm gonna work on buildin muscle and stamina. My goal is to successfully toss a caber! On a happy side note it will also move me into a healthier body that I will have worked (literally) my butt off for. :)

    Good luck with your training. In case you want a little tip on tossin' logs, 'round here we usually use a chainsaw to cut up logs into smaller pieces before we start tossin' ;)

    Good luck with your training program. I've watched a few games and it looks like a lot of fun to be a part of.

    I can already lift the regulations caber weight.... but lifting isn't even half of it! lol I am going to be on a VERY strict diet that will amount to well under 1000 calories, Working out on an elliptical and treadmill and once im down 50-75 pounds im gonna begin the weight training I need to build up the zones that need attention. Probably gonna be ale to get around to practicing with a caber.... next year. LOL!!!
