What's with this adding an "s" to names of places like they are the names of people or something. Buddy will get lost asking for the location of something that doesn't exist. :) The Longhorn Saloon and Grill is the proper name but The Longhorn is what it's called. The Khyber Pass is what it's named. Not Khyber's or Kai Burr's or anything silly like that. Or how about Whistla? What? You can't spell? Forgot to stay awake at school? Crochetty(sp?) old man out.

holy fuck man, you certainly are a crochetty oldfart if this is what your prioroties have become. step away from the computer and go do something fun, the small problems in life will soon disolve away…

Eye on the TV
'cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor
It happens to be like:
"Killed by the husband"
"Drowned by the ocean"
"Shot by his own son"
"She used the poison in his tea
and kissed him goodbye"
That's my kind of story
It's no fun til someone dies

I think we'd all be happier if we calmed down.

Interestingly, if a bit of work went into this we could make a sticky out of it

Travel
Greyhound
Arrange a lift

Accom
A few places suggested
Or a couch in return for beer

Trails (Park v Publicly accesible areas)
Anybody have any comment on this part???

This could turn into a useful resource

Step 1
Go on Craigslist and buy any 100.00 (or less) car that runs.

Step 2
Go to Superstore parking lot and get a set of plates. You can buy gas there too.

Step 3
Drive it up there, sleep in it in the parking lot, ride all day for a couple days.

Step 4
Drive it back to the Superstore parking lot and leave it, they'll get the plates back to the owner.

Easy.

You guys can't tell I am teasing you? Geez kids these days are so thin skinned.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

I made a sticky about accom a long time ago. I assume it's still there. I update it every season.
