Interesting Picture

I came across this road sign at an intersection during my travels. I thought I should share it with the Crossfit community so I took a picture with my cell phone; hopefully it came out clear enough...

Are you kidding me? It's probably against the AUP to go into details, but let's say that, were I anywhere near wherever that is (where is that, by the way?) I'd be executing a new task-priority WOD shortly before redecorating my room...

More like 1 sign-post pullup (weighted negative) followed by a weighted 2K (or possibly 5K).

Hmmm... I'll be in PA at the end of May...
