No RV's or weekend warriors to get stuck behind, that always spoils a ride.

Last time I rode thru a National Park, I got a triple ticket in one stop, a trip to court in Tacoma, haven't been back since. I was just "touring" thru.

I even waited in a small line of cars to get into the park only to leave with hefty fine.
If all you want to do is "rail the twisties" then NPS roads are definitely not for you.

Next time you're in the area carry a set of decent hiking shoes, some water, and some snacks, and stop to smell the roses.

National Parks are all free this weekend. May be your last chance to be able to afford them. The occasion is Veterans Day and will be the only freebie this year.

I've got my "Geezer" pass, so I can go during the week and miss the crowds.

F*** the forests. I want a cyberpunk dystopian future where I can really tear up the city twisties. Think about how much fun it will be to swoop and slalom between buildings and homeless camps.

I just watched Gasland about how frackers are destroying the groundwater forever everywhere it goes and is not accountable for its destruction thanks to Cheney’s energy deal which made special exceptions for fracking polluters. A lot of BLM and protected land has been and will be under the current administration open to frackers. All for a few years of cheap gas. MAGA

I was looking for something new to watch this evening and prefer documentaries.

Hulu has one called Wrenched, about the life and legacy of Edward Abbey, the novelist of Monkeywrench Gang and other activist environmental books. He grew up in Pennsylvania not far from where I lived. His father owned a little mineral shop.

He is considered the father of environmental radicalism. He had strong opinions on the sacredness of wild lands.

Check it out to find out about an American original. Too bad we don’t have him around today to give voice to the utter destruction of the natural world.

As the film stated, who are the real eco terrorists? BP who destroyed the Gulf of Mexico forever or people chaining themselves to bulldozers and spiking trees to prevent environmental destruction?

They admitted that some in Earth First went too far in destroying labs and burning buildings. Sometimes members of groups go too far in their passion. But sabottaging and resisting to slow the machines of environmental destruction can raise awareness and perhaps delay human annihilation. Which has happened many times. Some kayakers and bridge hangers managed to get Shell to not drill in the arctic while raising awareness of the issue worldwide.

If you have read anything about the collapse of civilizations, they all were caused by environmental destruction. Is it terrorism to cause the destruction of civilization, as today’s huge corporations are currently engaged in? I am pretty terrified to find out that Exxon knew back at the dawn of fossil fuel use that it was causing global warming and then ordered its studies be hidden from the public in the 1980s while they engaged in a massive campaign of deception to delay the public from acting on the knowledge because it would infringe on their ability to make money.

Is it terrorsm to have bought your way into the White House and then dismantle the department (State) that works most assiduously to solve the political and environmental problems of the world, as the former head of Exxon is currently doing?

Reminds me of world opinion when George W Bush was in power. The vast majority feared what Bush was doing to the world far more than bin Laden. And they were absolutely right. Bush and Cheney killed hundreds of thousands and destabilized the Middle East right up to today. Bin Laden was a blip in comparison.

Bringing this back to the header topic - I was cleaning out a closet and I FOUND MY GEEZER (Access) PARKS PASS that I got when I retired from the Navy so I can still go riding at Mt St H while all the tourists go to the mall because the park is too expensive.

sad because pricing-out people sucks but happy because less traffic.

why is life always like that?!?!?
