Disposal of old helmets

If you don't want to throw them in the trash you could throw them in a burn barrel.:crazy:

Bears on Whistler Today

Yes- stastically he's going to have a much better chance of living if he's hit by a smaller car with crumple zones as opposed to a huge truck/van with bull bars on the front. Same goes for children, in case you care. :)

…this wasn't really the point I was making anyway, it was just a roundabout way of saying that 4 or 5 (I forget which) of the bears that have died in the last week have been RTAs, and not food-related. Either way, it sucks.

So now that I've defended the SUV set the logical assumption in your mind is "he'd just as soon run down children":lol:

Any idea what kind of vehicles hit these bears? They couldn't have all been SUV's could they?:D Maybe it was one crazed SUV driving American that got board running over children in the states and decided to take his killing spree up north to go after your bears.:crazy:

And yes , I do own a Suburban. No it's not a grocery getter. And I feel much safer when my wife and children are riding around in that truck as opposed to the family car.

I read the story in the Squamish Chief today and I didn't find mention of the vehicles involved. Maybe you could look into it for me?

Bears on Whistler Today

As is a bear hit by a hulking great 'Sports Utility Vehicle'.

Yeah 'cause everyone knows a bear is going to do much better if he's hit by say a Toyota Tacoma, no wait how about a Mazda Miata. Geez the bear is still dead. Oh well lets blame "hulking great 'Sports Utility Vehicles" anyways

The wooden bridge on Lower CIU

Put two or three blades on a cordless skill saw, set the blade depth at 1/4" to 3/8" deep and cross hatch the heck out of it. It'll help drain the water and offer some traction. Can't wait to ride it next month.

Bullsh*t weather

But what has the wind been doing in the Gorge??

I am coming down next week for 10 days to get my sailing fix. The car is jammed with kid/dog etc so I may have to leave my bike at home….arrgghh

Just drove back to Portland from Hood river and the wind was blowing nicely. Plenty of white caps and three foot rollers on the water. And no one was out there. Hurry down here. It's waiting for you:)
