If a county has 100 residents and 10 leave, thatís a 10% change. If 10 move in itís a 10% change.

The author of the map should have his tenure revoked if he canít write a more accurate title. SMH.

No. That map is fine. Ask the ******g experts.

A properly done legend. Velo Vol could take notes one selecting actually informative maps.

You just need to get a bakfiets or a dog trike for Benson. She'll appreciate it.

Nonononono.... That was a fine map. The legend was as clear can be. People are piping up hours later stating that fact.

Yes, the one you're showing is clear and concise, as was mentioned earlier, but that doesn't much matter.

We got a trailer for her. She'll start using it in the spring.

It is beautiful here today, it always is after a good rain. High of 55, light winds, clear sky, and snow on the mountains in the distance. Got out for almost 3 hours of bike path spinning. One branch of the path was gated due to dirt and sand built up from high water last week. I hopped the gate and slogged through because I wanted to go that way.

On my way back a woman riding by saw me at the gate and she stopped to ask if I needed help, I guess getting my bike over the gate? Did I look frail? I'm sure she was just being nice, I shouldn't complain. Anyway she took off and I was going the same way. She was a strong rider, she could have lifted my bike over the gate, I'm sure.

That's one way to say it. Wink wink.
Bonus points for zero map content.

None of it much mattered from the beginning, did it.

This is where I was twenty years ago. My solution was to up and leave. It worked. Those people no longer piss me off.

True. You do have to HTFU here. But isn't it worth the price to be neighbours like old times?

Velo Vol 01-02-22 06:25 PM

So rjones28 was the one fussing about winter, and now Velo Vol is the one who pays the price. I see.

Our perfect winter about to hit the dumpster. SMH.


rjones28 01-02-22 06:31 PM

Velo Vol is stealing our winter.

Since it's obvious I don't mind beating a dead horse, and we're on the topic of maps, I'll leave this here for quiet reflection.
