in 102 posts this thread has traversed from the initial accident report to moving a boulder to the sacred national parks to liability to what seems to be gang member images to injuries to health care to paying for health care and I probably missed something. Nice.

I can always find something interesting to distract me from work on the Taco. Keep up the good work.

Ex15. I have good friends who had good jobs, teacher and school buss driver. Both have cancer. The teacher lost her job, buss driver had to go to work with a colostomy bag. they are on the verge of loseing their house. Not everyone is a rich f*#k.

tradmanclimbs, Sorry to hear that. Never good to lose a job when there is a mortgage to pay.

I have a teacher friend who has cancer. She just returned to work after being out for over a year. Husband is a stay at home dad. She is not a rich f*#k like me, and they are not on the verge of losing their home. All I'm saying is you're just an over-generalizing dck f*#k...

Moosehead is $4.49/six-pack here. Molson's $3.99. What's it go for in Canada?

Ooooooh, Chaz. Don't get me started on Canadian beer prices. It's bad enough to make one stay out of the country. Cali wine wasn't too bad when we were there in 2012.

Ques: Do the stratospheric beer prices energize a serious home brewing culture in Canada? I'd be all over it at those prices.

One of my favorite paces to eat is a joint right on the Canadian border in Blaine called Big Al's Diner.

Right across the street - right on the border practically - is a little convenience store with a 75' sign you can see from Canada advertising their "deals".

Budweiser $18.95/12-pack

Butter $6/lb

Eggs $4.49/dozen

Anywhere else, except maybe Alaska, you'd keep prices that high a secret.

Well at least we have the death penalty if you’re black or chicano and have a public defender.

1300 is considered a high deductible. That should provide a lot of peace.
But, if you're a big risk taker, go for the no insurance option, then beg strangers for the money for medical bills

I have a major soft spot for Gofundmes.
Injured climbers, dogs, hurtin’ wooks, you name it.
Not everyone is rollin’ as hard as me so I try to help out where I can.

"Hey doods before you judge me let me tell my story. My so called "friends" came over last night to have a massage party and sesh. They showed up and would not stop asking me for phat bowls of my kush. I ended up sharing all my weed with my so called "fam". I am now %100 completely out of herbskies. As sad as this may sound I was so hurting I almost smoked a heaping bowl of resin this morning. If you couldfind it in your hearts to donate even a cent to my cause, it would be beyond appreciated. I am seriously jonesing for a smoke. Thank you all for listening to my story and possiblty donating towards my dub. For real thanks. Much love fam. #love and light #blessed
