    [–] Dog park tour of Portland, stop #3: Mt Tabor off-leash park humanclock 7 points ago in Portland

    Nice. I take Ms. Freddie here once a week. Fun fact, one of the worst smelling areas in Portland is the garbage can just off to the right in the photo frame.

    Close! I rarely ever heard "Sheila" or "Fosters Beer" the entire time I was there.

    My wife and I are gonna have a long weekend of getting all "Degrassy Jr. High" on our lawn and rip it all out and replant with groundcover we don't have to mow and or watch it turn brown. In some parts of the USA this is probably considered an Unamerican Activity.

    Edit: Shout out to Lewis Rents in Montavilla. About halfway through the sodcutting the cutter's wheels stopped moving. I had bad visions of having to take it back and continue the project next week. I called and the guy walked me through to make sure I was doing stuff right. Stuff still wasn't working so he said "what is your address? I will load another on the trailer and bring you another one". He showed up a little later with one and I finished up the other half of the yard. Btw, TIL that a sodcutter will fit into a Subaru Forester if you keep the back hatch open

    When I was in Australia for a year, more than once I heard both women and men refer to another woman as a "bunny boiler". Finally someone explained it to me after I asked..."Fatal Attraction mate, remember what happened to the bunny?"

    I remember a smoker in the 90s telling me "AND THEY ARE TAKING AWAY OUR BARS AND RESTAURANTS!"

    When I was a kid in the early 80s...when my mom went to pay bills, she always made me wait in the car when we stopped at the insurance agent's office. One time I hounded her and she let me come in...I soon found out why, it was far more smoky than any bar I have ever been in when smoking was still allowed.

    A relative was doing IT support for an A-List rock and roll manager...who was still using AOL long, long, past its prime.

    Also, there are weird adverse possession laws that come into play if they keep using it. (IANAL, but great at repeating stories heard from my relatives' experiences)

    Get that fence up, even if it is just a quick half-assed one.

    Get one of the ULA circuit or catalyst packs, they have (had?..I have not been there in awhile) them at Next Adventure. I used one on my PCT hike years ago and it was great. At 68L it might be bigger than you want though.

    I always liked Tom Scharpling's quote about the ICP:

    "It’s hard to do stuff. That’s why everybody stops doing it. ’Cause it’s hard. So I always have a lot of respect for people who do things. Even if it’s the worst garbage on earth. I give Insane Clown Posse a lot of credit. Nobody wanted them to stay around. Nobody wants that. It’s terrible. And they’ve got every reason in the world to go away, and after a few years, they could’ve left and everybody would’ve said, “Of course they’re leaving.” That’s what you do. You do a dumb thing like that for a couple of years, and then you leave. I think they make some of the worst music I’ve ever heard, but if it means something to some fan, if that’s their favorite thing, it’s not for me to take that away from them. It’s like, I’m glad they found something that they enjoy. And they’ve built this horrifying thing up to where they have the Gathering Of The Juggalos every year, and it’s really successful, and all those people get together, and they’re real happy smashing fluorescent light bulbs over each other’s heads. [Laughs.] That’s apparently what they do there.

    But I’ll rank them above somebody who I know has impeccable taste and all they do is talk a good game. Insane Clown Posse gets more of my respect than that person, who’s just nothing but hot air and good taste. I might rather talk to the person with good taste than some fat Insane Clown Posse fan, but I actually give more respect to them for doing it if it makes people happy. Just keep those other people out of my neighborhood. Because I take property values very seriously."

    I really miss web design circa 1995: "Ok, do you want the sentences centered, or on the left? Color? No...can't really do that easily unless it is in a picture? Maybe a rainbow bullet point instead?"

    I have an aunt and uncle that have lived in Alaska for a long time. About 20 years ago (don't know the regs now), if you were a resident you could dip your net into the river and scoop out salmon, 30 per year. My relatives down here in the NW were like "hey, that sounds easy! Send us some salmon" My uncle informed them that no, it was not that easy. Sometime during the summer of 1997 I was visiting him and we went to go get salmon. Since I wasn't a resident I was just there to take photos and hang out. We drive five hours to the town of Chitna, the crazy ass old rail grade of a road perched on a cliff like a loony tunes commercial and finally park.

    Below us was this raging Copper River all full of glacial silt. My uncle said not to fall in..because the silt will fill up in your clothes and help sink you. We hiked down this steep ass hill towards the river. As we are going down to the river, it is very loud but my uncle looks back at me and smiles, then proceeds to yell out our relatives' names "yeah, right down here Bill and Carol...it is really easy to get fish, just like you said". It turned out that the salmon were not really running that day, hence after spending a day there I think they only got about eight. Hence, 48 bucks a pound, if it is truly wild caught...is a bunch of work, not to mention the freight cost of getting them packed and down here so fast.

    Yes, but you have to go to Sandy.
