    Did I exercise yesterday!!

    I helped my son do an HOME inspection yesterday. 35 thousand square feet under roof. Thats right, 35,000 sq. ft. He had me checking out the A/C units. All 15 of them, most all were 5 ton units. I walked so much that today I can hardly move. I can tell you for sure, I use different muscles walking than cycling. Today I am in touch with every one of those muscles used for walking for sure. To give you an idea of this place, it has an attached RV garage (air conditioned) and I could put my 35' fifth wheel in it with five more just like and it would not be full. Must be nice to have money. If you have 35 million laying around it could be yours. By the way the owner rides a recumbent.

    Is he in need of a live-in chauffeur who also enjoys recumbents? Please inform him that I'm available.

    35,000 sq ft including the RV garage? Or is that just the house? How many in the family?
    I ask because my former job took me into a lot of Mcmansions (although 35,000 sq ft is more like McVersailles) and I was always surprised by how few people were living in them.

    And, yes, walking uses muscles not used in biking! So does hiking - ouch.

    You win, you own more stuff than I.

    I just rode into town, rented a couple 007 DVD's watched them, and snacked a bit,
    with a friend, then rode home at midnight ..

    You are correct in your thinking. There were more staff than occupants. Just two very nice folks married 47 years and act like they are on there honeymoon. It was fun to see them coo over each other. I forgot thee dogs. It had both an island pool and a lap pool too. Huge chandlers that went up and down with the push of a button. The 35000 sq. ft. was under roof and that includes the garages, however they are all air-conditioned too.
