Mid Hudson Valley NY

#1 Postby davidmNY » Sun Feb 04, 2007 9:43 pm

Hello all. I'm thinking this is the year I get serious about getting in shape. I'm 37, 5'11" 165 at about 20% bf. I would love to meet people in the Hudson Valley NY area or within travel distance and maybe get an occasional work-out boost from someone a little more accomplished in the gym. I've been lurking on the Vegan Bodybuilding website and forums for quite some time. Thought it would be good to finally introduce myself.

PEACE- David

Welcome! I grew up in the Hudson Valley, mostly in Poughkeepsie with a couple of years in Saugerties. But now I am in Baltimore, soon to be in London.

Welcome David! I hope you find people in your area. I know there are certain regions that have more forum members than others. I'm lucky to have so many of our members out here in Portland. There are other cities where multiple members are and I hope you'll find a workout partner in your area.

The forum seems to be getting more and more popular all the time, chances of finding regional members is always increasing.

We have an awesome group of people here as you'll soon find out.

All the best and welcome aboard!

Very cool. I actually lived in Maryland for a few years [89-91]. Baltimore is a fun city. Cheers on moving to London. Lucky! I've wanted to go to the London Vegan Festival. http://www.vegancampaigns.org.uk/festival/ You'll have to go and report back!

Thanks for the welcome.

Yeah, I really like Baltimore. I have been here for 16.5 years! I arrived in mid-1990. We'll miss Baltimore but are very excited about London. We will definitely go to the London Vegan Festival and report back about it.

Welcome David! My wife and I are in Mass - prob about 3.5 hrs away.

I've been to a couple West Point football games and have biked and hiked Bear Mountain a few times. Beautiful area.

Very cool. It was at the Boston Veg Fest over 2 years ago where I heard Eric Markus speak when I decided to transition from vegetarian to vegan.
