hi Karl welcome

if you could it would be nice if you gave us a little about yourself , involvement in the iron game etc

also is Mckeesport a city or small town ?

i am assuming its on the coast

i am from Johannesburg South Africa 

so i battle to place posters in my mind 

the US is such a huge and mysterious continent ( hardly a country when compared with the rest of the world)

Hi Karl, welcome to the forum, a great bunch of friendly guys with all kinds of iron game experience. As Liam said it would be good to have some background information so we can know you better.

Peter.

Mckeesport is near Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. I grew up lifting around and old farm and local gyms. I also played college football for edinboro university of pennsylvania. I'm just starting to collect some old weights and found this fantastic site. I waited to long to start but better late than never. I was working towards competing then had an accident and had my left arm fully reconstructed. So im getting back into lifting after several years.

You will find in the Old Iron Depot section a wealth of information that our current, and some former (deceased) members have shared. I personally know very little about this topic, so it is not self-promoting when I refer you to our experts who do! I honestly doubt there is any other place to find their level of expertise gathered into one source. (OK, that is a bit of self-promotion)
