It is like walikng into a museum with no lights, no real organization, and no cleaning staff. It's the exhibition equivalent of a rat bike.

nneebbee, it's true, isn't it, that a little painting will bring a lot of good thoughts to your heart?

It's almost 12:22, Chico time.

Do you know where your hometown is?

Merced is the "clone city" of Chico.

If you've been both places, you know this is true.

Google is telling me it is 600 miles door to door to the corresponding street address in Chico from Chula Vista - says I can be there in 8 hours and 54 minutes by car.


I'm wondering why a 20 oz. Vaughan (999 L (made in USA for lefties)) framing hammer would have "WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES * A5C" stamped into it?

Hello...I lurk on this thread a lot, just pop in now and then to tell you it really is an eclectic stroll...feel like I'm watching a light show, reliving fun from BITD, just all kinds of stuff when I check it out. Interesting motorcycle stuff...I had a Ducati and a BSA way way way back.

Thanks for all you folks do on this thread...I get tons and tons of enjoyment from it!

Please avoid la chupacabra like you would avoid fishzilla. No need for tha photo of said 'zilla. Best avoided entirely.

I thought we'd had it over with with Johnny Hallyday's shindiggy thingie.

Nope. The Fickle Finger of Fate in fact has fingered the Badfinger singers. Ham?

Susan, please thank you for me. :)

That was a beauty of a shot of Half Dome you posted elsewhere, on the Doc/Photo thread.

Hear hear for the obscure, the ones that get behind something else, but are still worthy of a look...

I explained this "obscurity" perspective to Werner and his cat this morning on another day trip to the Cleft-Behind's Nirvana, via YART, which is really VIA, by the way.

He did his Werner shrug and changed the subject.

I meandered through this rocky talus beginning with the parking lot at the Lodge and following it across the road to the C4 lot and through it and then up and up till I intersected the Falls Trail someplace below the top of Selaginella Wall. Two climbers came down the trail just as I made my way over to it after a long blow and they took my picture with old Gary with the walking stick.
