Hey! i was just curious if anybody on here is from the Detroit Michigan area. i'm heading out there December 10th to serve an LDS church mission (mormons for those who aren't familiar ) and i was just curious what its like. whatever useful information would also be awesome. Thanks!
p.s. not being able to get on AM for two years is gonna be kinda tough, not to mention not being able to lift weights

I used too live on the border of detroit. Right across from the Detroit Zoo on woodward.
Anything in particular your curious about?
Where are you going to be located?
Why cant you lift weights?

Well i hate to say it but it's not a safe city. But as long as you mind your own business you should be fine. At night if your by yourself I might lock your doors at stop lights as people have been known to jack your sh!t at a red light.
For the most part there is no real 'downtown' there is cobo hall, joe louis arena, the GM building and stuff right on the water, but there's nothing really too do as far as foot traffic. there are little pockets of areas that are cool around the city, like Belle Isle, and some of the border cities are cool like Birmingham, pleasant ridge, ferndale, royal oak.
The nice thing about the area is the access too outdoor activities. Any sport or pastime you can think of you can do, except for surfing.
too bad about the weights, theres a big powerhouse downtown. Bodyweight excercises are cool though, they're harder than people think.
Your right across the border from windsor ontario, very cool city, lots of concerts/festivals during the summer.
If I didnt cover something else you would want too know dont hesitate too ask, and once you find out exactly where your going too be you can let me know and I'll give you some stuff too do around your area, if that would help.

hmm if theres really no downtown, we might just be in the suburbs surrounding Detroit, but who knows!
Thank goodness at least we'll be able to get out and do something on our day off!
i was checking out all the powerhouses in that area and i think i might just have to meander on over to one, they look awesome
Thats actually where one of my friends is serving at and he said it was awesome there. i don't think i'll be able to go though since it's out of our boundaries
You've been an awesome help! do you still live in that area? if you do and ever need help with anything just let me know. thanks again

Use your whole quad (not leg, all four books).
I'm an ex (though still a member) mormon
If you wish to discuss it I'd be happy too. Maybe best left to private messages though? ...your call.
I looked at your pic. You're one monster 18 year old. You wont have a prob out there haha
