re: Could you swim across the Mississippi River? - KG6
[quote]I’d consider it a much greater achievement than swimming in a triathlon. [/quote] I'd never attempt it as it is definitely risky. I'm not saying strong swimmers would make it 100% of the time. I am not overly surprised that someone made it though. Swimming 2.4 miles is nearly 5 times t...

re: Could you swim across the Mississippi River? - KG6
[quote] If anyone says yes, I have to assume they have no idea how strong the current is. [/quote] Do you just assume the current is straight down or something?...

re: Woman swims across the Mississippi River from Aquarium to Algiers Point - KG6
[quote]The red line was her swim path?[/quote] Yeah, she swam a perfectly straight line. No way someone just randomly put a line over the picture to show the round-a-bout path she took. I've done a good bit of open water swimming doing triathlons. I have no doubt I could cross (although I'...

re: Is going to concerts even worth the money and time? - KG6
Wife works for a 16,500 seat venue. Get to go to pretty much any show for free and park 100 yards from where we sit. 75% of the time it's in some premium seats. It's worth it for me at least :lol:. I go to shows I'd never pay for and often come away from it having enjoyed the experience (drinking...

re: Jay-Z becomes Hip-Hop's first billionaire. - KG6
[quote]15 years ago it would be impossible to miss someone like him, but it's not that far fetched today[/quote] Ehhhh, that's pretty much ever generation. You get old and don't pay attention to the new stuff. Doesn't matter the medium. My grandpa was not humming 99 problems while doing chores...

re: Fleabag season 2 - KG6
Just found this show. It's crazy how I cant put my finger on what makes it so good. She can look at the camera and I bust out laughing. Then it can be serious in the same scene. Still on episode one of season 2. ...

re: Bike Recs - KG6
[quote]What would be the cheapest option for a half iron man? The Cervelo P3 is what a buddy of mine used in Chattanooga. They are at least 1500 used. I couldn’t possibly justify that for what is likely a one time deal.[/quote] If it's only one time and just to finish, get a road bike. That will ...

re: Joe Rogan podcast with Ed Calderon - KG6
[quote]He explains in the podcast why he doesn't think it will. [/quote] I'm not finished with the podcast, but he says it won't stop it, but he is for it. So he thinks something would come out of it. Even Rogan made the comment that who knows how much worse it would be if there wasn't a wall i...

re: Mtn Bike Suggestions Needed-$1k Budget - KG6
[quote]It’s a bike just go to Walmart. [/quote] And get yourself put in the hospital. There are plenty of youtube videos of guys taking "Walmart" bikes down a trail. The bikes barely make it past one day. I have never ridden crazy stuff, but even the rooty and hilly areas north of Houston have...

re: Mtn Bike Suggestions Needed-$1k Budget - KG6
Check out craigslist. I got a Giant XTC Advanced 29r for $1000. That's a full carbon frame hard tail. That's like a $3000+ bike brand new. Owned by a bike shop mechanic. He built the bike up with a replacement frame he got, so it was a brand new frame. Can easily find bikes in the sub $1k rang...

re: Request: Building Green Egg Cart - KG6
[quote]make the bottom shelf a little lower and put 4 square pavers for the egg to sit on to prevent embers from damaging the wood.[/quote] Most plans already take this into account. And BGE sells a small stand made for this purpose. It's only like $25 and holds the pit up off the wood. The pa...

re: Request: Building Green Egg Cart - KG6
[img]http://i67.tinypic.com/16i5rbm.jpg[/img] Built in an afternoon a few years ago. I think it was $120 with casters. All in, it was the same price as buying the egg with the nest set up or less. I forget what the plans were, but the green egg dealer had the critical dimensions (hole size, he...

re: How much equity do you have in your home and When do you plan on paying off - KG6
[quote]Any idea how soon? [/quote] No way to tell. But when I do move, the company pays all realtor fees, closing costs, etc. Actually usually provides a 3% value of your home as a bonus. So from the "cost of moving" perspective, it's not that big of a deal for us. [quote]15yr. mortgage ...

My home value has dropped over the last 4 1/2 years. Only about 4.5%, but still. And that's legitimate as we are casually trying to sell. ...

re: How much equity do you have in your home and When do you plan on paying off - KG6
I feel like giving an idea of your age would help. We are in the process of moving. No rush for us as we are just trying to get in a really good school district and have until the end of next summer. I'm 33 and although we have the funds to jump into a house, we will be starting with only 20% dow...
