Brett-AKA: "Georgia Peach", as per your email.....
(is there something you'd like to tell us, Brett?)--
I'm 46, so I think that qualifies me as an "old guy" in this sport. I don't consider it a hinderance though.
I'm also assuming because you're 16 (I can't remember when I was 16
) you might have some difficulty picking up on sarcasm about the delicate skin. Plus I'm not very "image paranoid", so I don't care much what anyone thinks. Don't worry though....you'll grow out of it someday.
Oh yeah.....I'm prolly in every bit as good shape as you, if not better, and thats no sarcasm!
Thomas-- Shweet!! I'm assuming 6a? I promise, no drysuit!
......I'll see what I can do about the 180...
...Just you, or is the honey makin' the drive too?
Jamie-- You're a bigger man than me, cuz I don't think I could do the black socks and sandals...
...I guess that makes me a "little" image conscious, but hey, you gotta draw the line someplace, right??
