    Re: Ross Bennett's Olympic Path

    I just put that because I spend alot of time down there. I live in Shawnee kansas if youve ever herd of it. there are a few lakes were I live but its still to cold. I dont have a dry suit so it wouldn't be much fun to go sailing. i only have a wetsuit which only works in the fall.

    I know of a few people that do in the winter but I don't. The lakes usually dont freeze over that thick so usually the ice isn't thick othrewise we would.

    Iceboating is great, I live in IA and we get to go most every year. this year though, way too much snow.

    A small diversion if you will.

    As you all know, I am currently in college, my second year to be exact. Well today I received my acceptance letter to Concordia University. It's a nice school, small, and just up the street. For those of you that know Orange County, its right below UCI. I'll probably be studying Graphic Design.

    Yay me.

    Hey, congrats Ross. I've been following this thread for some time and check out your website from time to time. Honestly I think the most impressive thing is your commitment to school. It's great and that commitment will be well worth it in the end.

    Not coming out East? Too bad you would have enjoyed the 125" of snow, ice caps and true "frostbite" sailing...Did you check out Chapman in the OC they have an up and coming sailing team...

    There's a reason I decided against BU, it's cold!

    I looked at Chapman, very nice school, but they won't taken American Sign Language (ASL) as a foreign language, being American Sign Language, its just not foreign enough....


    check my blog for pics Saw...

    Re: Ross Bennett's Olympic Path

    In real life there's only one sign you need to know, I think you know which one.....

    but the one I use most often, probably daily, is this one

    Some signs just come out,like "what", rather funny really. I was great how we would use ASL in other classes to talk and get away with it, because we were "practicing"

    How did you come across needing to know sign language?

    Re: Ross Bennett's Olympic Path

    At my school, you had to know a foreign language to graduate, and it's required for college. Sign Language, French, and Spanish was offered. I took Spanish all though Middle School, and always failed it, so that was out. And I took to weeks of French Sophmore year, and that got too hard, so I said forget that. The key is to find a deaf person that teaches Sign Language! :)
