I’m Not Small

On this site I’ll occasionally refer to the fact that I’m “not small” because it can sometimes cause issues during travel.

I have Acromegaly, which caused me to shoot up to my current height of six feet four inches tall. By the end of my pituitary tumor induced growth spurt, my weight topped out at about 240 lbs.

As it turns out, that’s just enough to cause issues with normal sized people stuff. Like double beds, airplane seats and standard size rental cars. So if you are also not small and you plan on traveling in the U.P., double bonus for you!
