Birthday yesterday--among the surprises was a 16# sledge hammer and a heavy-duty wheelbarrow.

Apparently Home Depot thinks my wife is a little out there, but I think I'll keep her!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7212652029&sspagename= ADME:B: AAQ:US:1

This very day in my email I found a guy answering an email from my wife who was asking for the shipping cost of this item. Hmmm. I asked her about it and she said the full price was much closer to 5 grand so she wanted so see what the total would be with shipping. For the first time in my adult life I felt a bit guilty about a personal excess not yet given to me. I didn't quite protest but it sure seems that I could pretty easily get a couple D model C2's and actually save us money.

Eureka! That's one for the guys: "No honey, I'll just get a couple more C2's instead and save us $2,000 or so." What a great guy I am.

Oh, by the way Kenneth, your wife actually went to the store and came out with two very non-woman items that she had to get into a vehicle and get back to your house. My wife checked for shipping in the email. I think you've got me on this one.

I'll get back with you if this turns into something worth reporting.

Kenneth,
Your wife might have some remodleing in mind:happy:. But I suspect she is cool like Eugene's and got you CF stuff. Be alert for paint chips and swatches of cloth that match laying around.

STAIRMASTER?

Isn't this the 3rd Sign of the Apocalypse?

Wait now Tim...not eliptical, not those lever step things but actual stairs that move. I have had some truly vision narrowing workouts on the Stadium HS stairs but they are all the way downtown and are closed now for some school reconstruction. I am taking my kids to the Y for swim class tonight and I am going to use the one they have and see if it is a worthwhile addition to the gym. Also, do remember that I am one of those endurance guys who still does LSD work. It is not the 3rd sign, not even the second.

Not even a casual hint.

Those are really good machines. Like walking on real steps. If you find one at a gym, it likely won't have seen much use. Tough workout....

Agreed. Setting one of those machines at high speed and then trying to keep up with it is like running up a steep, shifty sand dune (I don't live near the beach).

All in good fun.

Used to be a guy at the gym where I worked that would pound his way through a workout on the stepmill with a loaded pack, holding a 45# plate (he was a Ranger). Don't know what happened to him, but I bet he's crossfitting somewhere.
