    I’ve done 15. *blush* It’s nice. And I can do 36, also. But I can’t believe you’ve never had kiwi. If you come home to visit, I will feed you kiwi, AND we have one of those rope zippy things here in Hocking Hills that you can practice on for the real ones. 🙂

  2. Me Says:

    Same weekend we can get together and knock out 1,2,22,31,40, and 33 at the North coasst. and i’m sure we can find someone to handle 14. and you can always hook me up with 16.

    At the north coast you don’t need 37 and if you don’t mind substatuting the bulls with walleye we can do 73 too.

    as far as 30 is concerned just taek chuck Noris’ perspective and don’t be intelerant of Lactose, jsut refuse to put up with its’ shit!
