I’m planning on taking a road trip to Portland from Phoenix to attend a workshop hosted by Mike Mahler and Christian Thibaudeau on Saturday, August 16th, 2003. More information can be found out about this workshop in the thread in the Lair of the Ice Dog forum or by emailing Mike Mahler.
The drive will approximately be 18 hours long. Who from the Phoenix metropolitan area or nearby would like to go with me? We can take my ride and split gas and driving time. I would not do the drive alone.
A lot of the attendees, as well as the hosts, are planning on doing Strongman training the night before, Friday, with Patricia and Ko. I would, of course, like to do this so it would be necessary to leave Thursday, probably mid-afternoon in order to arrive by Friday mid-morning.
Patricia and Ko have graciously offered to allow a few of the guys to stay at there place. They have enough floor space for about 5 or 6 guys. That is one option. A second would be to stay overnight on Friday & Saturday, or to drive back late Saturday night.
If you are interested in doing this, please respond here in this thread, PM me, or contact me via email so we can finalize the plans.
An 18 hour drive to Oregon, strongman training w/ the T-gang and Mike & Christian, an 8 hour workshop being schooled on kettlebell & conditioning by Mike and olympic lifting by Christian, and I’m sure many, many eating occasions. It will be a fun experience.
