Lorain Dude- a tuff mudder- NOT- Lorain has “fun”draisers and e books

Lorain Dude- ready to roll- where is the mud?

Although I was ready with my own transportation suitable for the event , my “mudder” ( mother to you) wouldn’t let me attend the Tough Mudder event in Amherst – she said –

” No! this event is not for little boys and anyway you are the “LORAIN Dude”

So then I decided ( thanks to a little help from Nag Nog) to hold my own “Mud Event” in Lorain. Watch out! I am in training for the next one- hmmmm is there a height limit and do I have to be fully potty trained?????

So back to Lorain

I know that Nag Nog’s neighbor Kelly Sagert has been working hard with the Eden Valley Enterprises and Betty Lou Higgins .

GRANDMA GATEWOOD: OHIO’S LEGENDARY HIKER is now available in PDF format delivered right to your e-mail box or for your Kindle for only $5.99! Read about this fascinating woman’s hiking adventures on the Appalachian Trail and beyond.

This e-book is one part of our Grandma Gatewood project which includes a storytelling program (now available for bookings) and a documentary (for which we are currently seeking funds).

The storytelling program is currently scheduled to be presented at the Buckeye TrailFest later this month and at the Willoughby Library on August 6. If you would like to arrange for this or any of our programs to be presented for your group, send us an e-mail! In the meantime, keep track of our performance schedule on our website.

Since eating pasta with tomato sauce can get messy I suggest you follow my lead and take a “poo bah” along with you to help you out – he was terrific in getting me cleaned up from my “mudder event” (especially when it gets in your ears) and as for my own mother she isn’t so tough- 🙂
