    I'm gonna look into it....although rural Georgia is not the perfect place to pioneer a winter oympic type sport....

    Thanks for the input tho'
    I have a good friend who lives in Atlanta, and she tells me this is the year of the snowstorm there, so maybe Stone Mountain could be turned into a luge area, although the landing down below would be a bitch.

    Hookup a sip and puff and I'd try it! Especially after having a sip and a puff!

    Thumbs up Hey Friend

    Dear Mark,

    It looks like the usual suspects from the politics forum have put in their more than $0.02 in to this thread.

    Here is a link to the bobsled track up in New York
    http://www.adirondacks.com/bobsled.html

    I just wonder if you will get up to the speeds you did on your motorcycle! Make a video of it and post it if you go!

    Giddy UP,

    And your issue with that is?

    if you learn the sport right, you learn to ROLL off the sled. Moreover you are going to have a padded moto suit on, more protection than two layers spandex, no matter how pretty you think you are in it.

    On a club run there are going to hay bales all over, on a well cleared, soft shouldered stretch of highway.

    Finally, Newbies, no matter how talented, are restricted to the short course. No throwing a kid with not enough hours on a top tier track, unlike certain winter games.
