    Interesting! I go to the Women's Fitness Center in Brunswick and do both Body Pump and spinning. I know both have helped me a lot with geocaching especially the long uphill climbs. Recent bout of hip bursitis (hmmmm.... caused by above three activies? ) is slowing down the caching and gym. Had on my geocache hat one day at spinning and found two other geocachers at the gym come up to chat.

    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    That's the dance I have to do, after changing the batteries in my Vista GPS'r.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Spinning is a program designed to build up your hiking geocache muscles . No actually it is an indoor bicycling program to build up endurance and also do a cardio workout. Common questions are here:

    It can get pretty intense and is a great workout.

    I get plenty of exercise for geocaching, i have a very intense routine myself, i do 12oz curls for hours at a time, and sometimes i even do 16oz!

    heh, a friend of mine (who is quite old) told me that he has a new exercize routine that he started. every day for 2 minutes he holds up a 50# potato sack, then after 2 weeks he holds them up for 5 minutes, he's already up to 10 minutes a day... next week he says he might actually put a potato in one of them!!

    I'm glad to see we can take what appears to be a shameless ad, and turn the thread into something completely off the subject. All without any bad sentiments. Way to go. Nice picture, where is this geocache? Must be rated a 4 to get the bike up there.
