    [–] What’s the nicest library in Portland? humanclock 3 points ago in Portland

    Shhh! I know libraries are all about the sharing of information for the greater good, but some information should not be shared.

    [–] Oregon's Unique Bike Tax Is Pulling In Far Less Than Expected humanclock 1 points ago in Portland

    It has been two colors over the years, rattle can orange, then now rattle can red. I think next year I'm gonna paint it agin.

    Yeah, I have long thought I should upgrade my commuter bike to something made this millennium...but why chance it?

    [–] What "you know what, just to be safe..." thing you did ended up saving your ass later? humanclock 43 points ago in AskReddit

    When I was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in the 1990s, I met a guy who had been struck by lightning twice and survived. We were hiking one day near an exposed pass...there was lightning in the sky. I didn't know whether to stick near him or a long ways away. Fortunately nothing happened.

    [–] Sting uses fake Amazon boxes, GPS, and doorbell cameras to catch would-be thieves humanclock 1 points ago in news

    I haven't heard that (though we do have brutality issues), from reading the paper over the years it has been due to retirements and cutbacks. Now the biggest problem is they have so many open positions they can't fill, plus it takes a long while to hire/train new recruits. The bike blog here in town had an article about the lack of enforcement on traffic issues.

    Shit, here in Portland I dream of them enforcing traffic laws. They are so understaffed here that they only really respond to violent crime.

    [–] 2019 hikers, pack an extra day out of Stehekin humanclock 3 points ago in PacificCrestTrail

    Frosty Mountain is near there. Maybe it was that we are Americans who talk at 95 decibels thus they were unhappy? (I MYSELF NEVER NOTICED THIS UNTIL I TRAVELED OVERSEAS AND LEARNED HOW LOUD US AMERICANS ARE)

    [–] Slow day on the PCT sub and I need my fix. Tell me something cool about your hike, past or future. humanclock 1 points ago in PacificCrestTrail

    replying again, this story hit closer to home than I imagined. I was even at a loud rock show last night, shooting video of it from the front of the stage under the guitarist, but a good chunk of the time I kept thinking about your story and the visuals you laid out. ugh! Glad you can find it funny now, but man, growing up can be a bitch!

    [–] I know this is ridiculous but do they sell 40s of Pabst anywhere in Portland? humanclock 2 points ago in Portland

    Might I suggest once you acquire these beverages, you bond with your brother and drink them outside a convenience store on a Friday night while having an animated discussion about each of your relationship issues.

    [–] I know this is ridiculous but do they sell 40s of Pabst anywhere in Portland? humanclock 2 points ago in Portland

    Yes, it is a good amount without letting you consume more. The same reason I buy an ice cream bar instead of a pint/half gallon.

    [–] Nice one KGW humanclock 7 points ago in Portland

    No, it is in fact her mom we are all here for.

    On the upside, you can call this your "My Brad Pitt in Seven Years in Tibet story".

    I haven't had this exact experience, but feel your pain immensely. It is one of those "PCT was difficult" stories that is almost worse than the usual bad things like running out of food or being chased by an axe murderer.

    Camped just off Highway 62 in Oregon by Crater Lake. Around 8am I walked out to the highway and stuck my thumb out to hitch to the PO. A van stopped and picked me up. The driver was this girl about my age who was working at the lodge. She said that some of the girls there "kidnap" PCT hikers. (before you get your hopes up boys/girls, this was 20 years ago) Anyway, she got me 70% off the food in the cafeteria and went on a boat tour of the lake for free. We spent the whole day together and then drank beer at night in her van parked back at the trailhead.

    Because I am One Dense Motherfucker, this is where the exciting story unfortunately ends.

    I always just added a burning fuse to the baton...which come to think of it, it too adds a terrifying element to their footrace.

    edit: Thinking about this some more, I would never have drawn a dildo during my Pee Chee years just because I wouldn't have known what one was. (this was pre-Internet mind you)

    When my now wife and I went on our first road trip circa 2006, she let me take us on a 600 mile detour to go to that landfill. I didn't dig anything up, but got to stand in the sagebrush and "take it all in"

    Tangential, some of the worst roommates I've had also had the finest penmanship.

    I wish I still had my annotated Pee Chees. Rule number one of getting a new Pee Chee...always draw a knife in the hand of the one basketball player, so he is stabbing the other player in the back.

    [–] When did your feeling about "Something is very wrong here." turned out to be true? humanclock 29 points ago in AskReddit

    Thank you, this drives me up the wall on r/Portland when people always being up "but but...at all intersections, even those without a crosswalk, cars are required to stop for pedestrians. You can cross legally! They must stop for you!"
