Hi from another "Michigander" .... I'm in the middle of the "thumb", but have done a lot of scuba diving up in the UP, (Whitefish and Pictured Rocks area) along with some camping and hiking there... beautiful area is right !

Like Maui said, most of us "hang out" on the "happy hour on the deck" thread... hope to see you there often... don't be shy!

Good luck on all your spark goals ! choc emoticon


Just keep swimming!

Never give up!

Thanks for the replys and comments on the 41 pounds! Sorry its taken me so long to reply...had a litttle "party on my own deck" still feeling the wrath...im getting to old for that!

I didn't know that instructional dvds existed! I will have to check amazon!!! There are no places here to give instruction...I stopped at the only promissing place yesterday...I bought the board from a local person on craigslist actually! Thanks for the info!!! I have two boys as well! Yours must be older than mine if they are windsurfing though!!!

welcome Burton!

My husband and boys are windsurfers. I suggest taking some lessons. If there aren't any lessons in your area, there are instructional dvds that are really good. That's how my husband learned and then he taught our kids. They can be ordered online if you can't find them at the shop where you bought your board and stuff. If you want to the know the titles of the ones we have, I can find that out for you.

Again welcome!

Welcome Burton!
Hi Mybulldogs!

Yes indeed Burton...congrats on those 41 lbs! emoticon

Just so ya know...most of this team activity is over on the thread we call the deck.

Its quite a magical place, friendly and magical.
You'll find the conversation supportive , quite varied in outdoor interests and a mix of a fantasy virtual world we 'play' in on the deck. We mix reality in and choose to
hand' out in our virtual world. We have a hot tub, pool, tennis courts, fire pit, huge deck for dancing, rose garden., 3 level tree house, tropical gardens. Tapas bar, wood shop, waterfall, rope swings , Segway, bikes, hammocks and more...

So, jump in over there. Feel free to ask questions when confused...
We support each other in reality and play while doing it.

So welcome!


Become the change you wish to see in the world.

----Ghandi

Hey everyone my name is Brenda! New to the outdoors team...not so new to the outdoors! Grew up and live again here in Michigans BEAUTIFUL Upper Peninsula!

Most passionate about running (especially in the woods along Lake Superior with my hound dog "Timber") and kayaking the hundereds of rivers within spitting distance of me! I have two sons (8 & 10) and we love to mountain bike together! Favorite place to be is our camp on a pretty little lake with not a soul in sight! Grew up swimming, fishing, hiking, shooting bow...

Last weekend I decided to embark on a new journey and I need some help with this one...WINDSURFING...bought a board (and of course the sail) not even sure im putting the dang thing together right! I welcome any and all tips you have for me!!!

Hoping to be a pretty active member on the team so feel free to add me as a friend if you think we have some similar interests or drop me a line if u have any fabulous tips hour dying to tell me!!! Thanks for reading! Later!
