Fat People Sports!

It's an old FAQ, but so far in my reading it's an excellent one!

Big Folks Sports and Activities FAQ

It goes through various sports and physical activities and talks about how to do them as a fat person. Considering my last post, I consider this find a sign that I'm on the right track. They've got a pretty good section on horseback riding. They also have a good section on caving, but while it sounds like a helluva blast, I doubt I have the time or money for the strength training and equipment it would require.

Wouldn't it be grand, though? :-)

I should get back down to Mammoth Cave this year. I used to go every summer as a kid.

That's an awesome FAQ/resource! Thanks for posting it. I love going into caves, but it makes my joints hurt (the cold). I'm very partial to scrambling, which is clambering around on boulders. I've never used any kind of equipment for it. It involves a lot of stretching and climbing and stuff. Fun times!

I would just like to point out something on scuba diving.

The man who certified me was six feet tall and weighed over 350 pounds and had no trouble at all with anything, he was (and still is) a phenominal diver and instructor. No one needs to stay on the conservative end of the dive tables because of their size! Experience, yes though. Other health conditions, maybe. But its not something you absolutely need any special concerns for.
