  1. It's five dollars people. And while Grasslands is not *long* on amenities, it has fire pits, tables, toilets, and all require some degree of upkeep.


    BLM camping is not always free anyway--ever been to ID? Plus what is all of this about every change requiring a lengthy public process? I don't see a legal issue here, enlighten me.



  2. Rush

    "Rush must be doing something right, he's got 20 million listeners".


    And that probably doesn't even count the few mil of us who catch Rush on Olbermann every night.



  3. There was a guy on NPR this morning talking about how "smarm" is destroying our ability to communicate because it tends to isolate us from each other and it blocks further discussion. Hence, I combine my witty rejoinder with an invitation: I'd sincerely like to see Fairweather show up at a cc.com social event some time.


    Actually, I think it was "snark". Same diff, really, 'cep Smarm's a little creepier and snark's a little more sarcastic.


    I'm really enjoying running into people i've lost touch with over they years, and unlike forums in general, people are generally nice to each other.


    I have to agree with Matt that FW would probably not enjoy the benefits of FB--but hey, it's not for everyone.

  4. The show is so big now that I'd hate for it to be 1x/year, that would make it even more ginormus. I'd like to see the people whho run OR be a little more selective about who they rent space to, as mentioned above, way too much "lifestyle" crap. Just the real thing, thanyouverymuch.


    The fact that the show attendance is down a bit actually makes it a lot easier to get work done, you spend less time wallowing in huge crowds.


    I'm fine with the show being in SLC, it's kind of a sucky town, but who cares? I'm so tired at the end of the day that grabbing a bite and falling into bed early's about all I have left.

  5. If I'm not mistaken...seems to me that getting everything wet, to lubricate things, will help. Helps to feed the cover a little bit, then pull the cover. Repeat. Should be able to get longer and longer cover sections fed as you do it, and you'll be done in a few minutes.


    I remember trying it dry, and I got sooo frustrated. Let me know if this doesn't work for ya.


    I found an older hydration setup in my freezer with a smaller diameter hose, got the whole thing wet in the sink, and a thrash and a half later, the sleeve is on there. I don't think I'll ever take it off of there now....
