Next Full Moon

Sunday, May 3rd Full Flower Moon

20 February 2010

___________ has been in effect.

Go get a late pass. Step.



I do not love the Joshua Tree. (I guess Moab has spoilt me, but I'll take my desert with a heap of BLM and USFS designation.) We had a good time anyways- what else are you gonna do?- and came home dirty, sunburned and tired so there can be no other conclusion but that we ruled it all over that joint...

Still. Overheard during my conversation with the ranger:

"How much have you had to drink?"

"Whose slingshot is this?"

"You can be charged with restoration costs for riding off trail in a National Park."


There are other brow raising details I will not post in this forum. Ask me in person how stupid and how lucky I am.

I will say: leave room in your traveling schedule for the occasional stop for thrift shops or shooting BB guns in the middle of nowhere, behind those gravel piles.

maybe the ranger seeing your poor youngest son in mismatched plaid was a tip-off that something was amiss.

you can't just flaunt those colors without expecting some kind of fallout. get real, bro.

looks fun none-the-less.

$125 worth-o-fun.

$50 for riding off road
$75 for possession of a weapon

...and now I read in the Santa Cruz Sentinel that firearms (to say nothing of slingshots?!) are allowed in Nat'l Parks.

What the HELL?

I've been going to JT since I was 5 and I am not sure I ever wanna go again. Too many people and cops. It was way better when it was just a 'monument' and not a stupid magnet national park.
