Vigilante Justice

Got this in an email from an acquantice today...

"and on the subject of revolting...I actually had a situation today. A punk asian/black kid on a backroad intersection who tailgaited me then ended up kissin' my bumper with the front grill of his Accord (no damage)...he was tailgaiting and couldn't control his vehicle at the stop sign. I got out to assess the damage and gave him an ominous finger gesture saying (get the fuck out of your car kid) but he didn't. I walked up to his window and again invited him to see the damage (although there was none but I wanted his information). He still didn't move but then threatened me saying he was gonna kick my ass and leave me in the ditch as he put it "like a total bitch." He then said "get the fuck out of the way before I run your punk ass over." He stepped on the gas and almost ran over my foot.

That was enough for me. I reached in his window and maced the ever living shit out of him. All I heard was freakish screaming, punching noises, the horn getting pounded and some disturbing lung busting cries as I walked back to my truck with a grin on my face. As I pulled away I looked in the rear view mirror and watched his car roll into the stop sign.

I called the po-po and filed a complaint. They ran his plates for me and said he was a recognized 'troublemaker.' I told them not to press any charges and let the situation go as there was no real damage to my truck. I totally "forgot" to mention the mace part to them. On my way home I swung by the same intersection - he was gone except for the tire tracks and his t-shirt along with a few other clothing items. Heck his face is probably still melting off.

Fox Labs 5.3 - powerful shit man....very powerful shit. I recommend you keep a canister in the vehicle at all times. Seriously - it's awesome. Use cautiously but it's safe, biodegradable, and drops shitstain assholes like a loaf of bread soaked in tobasco sauce. "

Wedding and Wood

So on saturday wife and I attened a wedding. An old fraternity buddy. It was a pretty good time. I saw a few other of 'the brothers' whom I also haven't seen in quite a while. Guys I like, but just dont get to seeing anymore. Perhaps that will change. Anyway, the wedding was nice and short.
There was a fairly good live band, Dirty McGurdy. Ive never heard of them. All guys in their late 40's plus. The lead wore a full scottish kilted outfit.

The recorded music was comprised of what seemed to mostly be Neil Diamond. But I remember hearing Metallica and that wedding classic...Short Dick Man. Ya. Seemed out of place to me too, but hey, whatever.

The following day I was too hungover to ride. So I did yard work instead, which has been suffering at the expense of my riding. Oh well, you must have priorities. So I got the lawn mowed and started splitting and stacking some cord wood for the upcomming winter. Sometimes it seems like every spring, summer and fall is all preparation for the next winter. Like Im some demented squirrel, gathering wood so I can keep the house at 80 degrees from November to March.

Only about a cord to go and Ill be done for this year.

Mt. Passaconway May 6, 2006

Saturday turned into a one heck of a hike for the Half-Ork, his wife theHalf-Orc Queen (HOQ) and my self. Our plan was to yo-yo up Mt. Passaconway (4060') and back.

We made it to the peak in about 3 hrs. (5.1 miles). Then during lunch I was looking at the map and saw that we could loop around the lower south side of the peak and reconnect with the trail we came up. Which we did just fine. Then we reached a second trail jct. and turned, thinking we were turning at a different spot. And actually we all agreed because the trail went up at this point so we were all like "lets just turn down". Well it turns out that was our mistake (if you want to call it that). We ended up adding about 4 miles to the day by doing that, thus making the trip more memorable.

But Ill tell you this trip had it all....The first 1.9 miles are very flat (and actually the final 4.5). There are very steep ups', very steep downs, we had sun, we had rain, we had muddy trail, snowy trail, icy trail and nice clean trail. There were at least 4 stream crossings. We found a supreme camp site which we will return to this winter. Crazy big and deformed trees. Craggy in some sections. Zen like in others.

By the end of the day you feet were sore. We knew that our legs would surely suffer tommrow. We ran out of water, hiked for 7-ish hours (9:30am-6:15pm) not included stop time (1.5 hrs) and really pushed it the whole way. We tested out selves physically and mentaly this day. I would say we all passed with an A.

Once I got home I reviewed the trail map and book to calculate the mileage and it turns out we did just about 14 miles +/- 0.5

Not bad, not bad at all.

BTW the Camp Rich shelter....either isnt there or we didnt find it. We found a nice big open place with lots of chared wood but no shelter.
