Roundup

1) Uh, What’s the deal with these town halls? After listening to Hannity yesterday, you’d think that we’re in the middle of a revolution.

2) According to Sean Hannity, if someone calls you a Nazi, then it’s okay to call them every other name in the book.

3) I’m addicted to baseball. Okay, I’ve been addicted to the game for years, but after going to two games in a row and the Yankee-Sox series, I find myself wanting to schedule my free time around the Yankee games. More so than usual.

4) I’m in Utah until the 29th of this month. Part of this time I’ll be working out of the Vernal BLM Office. This is the first time in 8 years I’ve worked in the west at all, and the first time in 12 years I’ve worked in Vernal.

5) So, there's a movement of Freehikers out there (hiking in the nude-I couldn't make this up). A group of them hiked up to Red Mountain just above Vernal a few years ago, and the entry about the hike is priceless. Totally brought a smile to my face-I've hiked, snow-shoed, mountain biked, and rode atv's up Red Mountain, but never free-hiked up it. Wonder what I'm missing?

I can imagine that all you are missing with the Freehikes are bug bites in horrible places.

I really can't think of anything enjoyable about that....at all. Maybe I am just unenlightened. I can deal with that.

Freehiking? I'd have to have some kick-ass hiking shoes to pull that off.

Sherpa said...

Jillian-No tan lines?

Brenda-I'm pretty sure freehikers or skinnyhikers (that's my favorite name for these nudists) get together and talk about their hiking boots.

I just really don't know what to say...
Hope I run into you while you're way out west.

I don't get the townhall thing going on. What is wrong with people?!?!

I'm all for Freehiking! Actually, I think I'd do just about anything naked. Although, be careful cooking bacon!

Janette-I'm going to be in Peoa tomorrow, and I know I'm going to Chance's football game is Altamont. Other than that, I have no idea when I'll be out that way-but I'm sure I will. I fly out of Salt Lake! I hope I get a chance to see you!

Steve-Yeah, this townhall thing is crazy..

Wow, butts and the desert seem to go together better than I thought, lol. I'm just not sure about the amount of sunscreen and mosquito repellent required to complete the trip.

oh man, i don't know what i would do if i ran in to free hikers. i think i wouldn't be able to stop giggling.

Sherpa said...

Aisy-I'm almost positive I wouldn't be able to stop giggling either..Or I'd keep it in until they went by and laugh the rest of the day.

Freehiking Red Mountain? I found the photos and now I believe. Otherwise, I never would have!

Sherpa said...

There's photos?
