Another Lesson frome a wise man. The more money you have the more money you spend, and it never ends, you always need more money.

Riding keeps you sane, nsmb is like watching a soap opera unfold.

But of course, it's easier to just make assumptions and demonize the government, the parks managers and anyone else that gets in the way.

There is definitely a lot of anti-establishment sentiment on this board, especially among the younger crowd.

It's the damn teachers, I tell ya… ;)

What I have learned thusfar:

-People make broad generalizations without really knowing the deal. What else is new.**

Truer words were never spoken.


-First impressions are usually pretty accurate and sometimes hard to shake. Don't bother putting the car in reverse.

I've caught myself numerous times with an immediate first impression that was totally wrong and hard to shake. It's one thing about myself that I actually care to work on, but it's hard.

-English is a scarce resource in Whistler.

Lots of tourists? :S :D

-There's at least one guy around here with a busy life who makes it happen and who also has a sense of humour.

Even on a cold and raining winter's eve, I'll don waterproof clothing and lights to hit the trail. There's something refreshing about riding in those conditions. The feel of a hot shower after also makes it worthwhile. :)

Didn't you know, it's the trendy thing these days.
Nothing gets chix at a party like a political t-shirt and strong opinion to go with it.

Their parents already did this in the 60s. Perhaps they should try something new.

I rode already today so I'm gonna bitch for a second.

You know what chapped my ass a bit a few days back?

One of the uuuhhh… leaders of NSMB… maybe the CEO I dunno… was suggesting everyone playing the ticket game with the machines. Now that's a FINE example if I I've ever seen one.

on any given saturday the government will make over $1000 off mtn bikers at Seymour alone. How much of that is going into the trails that they ride and now pay for? That was point Cam was trying to make and last week I happily handed over my ticket to someone else when I was done.

But we do use the park system do we not. There are costs involved in having paid rangers, road maintenece, garbage and shitter facilities availible. I believe in a user pay system as long as my income taxes have been adjusted accordingly we use the park therfore we pay for that right. Bitching about paying 50 bux a year to shuttle some of the best trails in the world is pretty sad.

What really burns me is having to pay the education component of the property taxes and then no-one can seem to spell!

I'm going for a ride today again
