Hello from Pennsylvania, USA.

#1 Postby Gary » Sun Oct 15, 2006 1:34 pm

Hi,
I'm 23 and I've been a vegan for a little over 2 years. Just wanted to say i've been watching this forum for a few months and you guys and girls are a huge inspiration.
I come from a small redneck town and it's hard to stay positive around here when i am constantly being put down. But seeing you people kicking so much ass helps quite a bit ;). Anyway's i am into lifting, i'm a smaller build naturally(around 165-170 lbs) but im pretty strong for my size. i will elaborate more in other branches of the forum. hope to get to know some of you guys.

We keep meaning to make it out to Donegal on a Saturday night for the Maggie's Mercantile vegan buffet! Actually, our whole Pittsburgh vegan meetup group has talked about heading out there. So, when is your next free Saturday night Gary?
