I drove past this between Salida and Cotopaxi on State Highway 50 in Colorado. I had to turn around and tell whoever that I stood with them totally assuming I was correct. I was and got the biggest hug of appreciation for doing so.

From my understanding, there are close to 3000 children being held around this country after being seized from their parents at the border.

Many will never see their Mom and Dad again because Republicans are totally evil.

You bastards!


Catholics Liaison To The Big Guy In The Sky

That would be those Pope fella's even though there's no one up there. Now this.
The head of a Roman Catholic order that specialized in the treatment of pedophile priests visited with the then-pope nearly 50 years ago and followed up with a letter recommending the removal of pedophile priests from ministry, according to a copy of the letter released Wednesday.

Then you get the not me/us or whatever the reason.
A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, defended the church and said it was unlikely Paul VI ever saw the letter.

Imagine that. What's it going to take before the soldiers of this flawed ideology say no more?

You sick fucks.

And you wonder why non-believers have no respect for any of this insanely flawed belief system.


Ramping Up For The Biggy On Sunday

After a getaway from all the political nonsense close to two weeks worth I have yet to read much on politics and am unclear if and when I will.

But I do know this Sunday is Easter a major event for many who believe in the impossible and bizarre but don't believe they need to call out the priests who rape their children.

The lead up to the finale starts on Thursday night with rituals performed that rival any around the world. As an alter boy it was up close and personal.

Then the afternoon on Friday that became excruciating with what seemed like endless bullshit of nonsensical words that meant nothing to me ever.

Never had to do the Saturday bs as even my parents knew a kid can take only so much.

Finally after Sundays event it was back to a bit of normality but the damage had been done after a month of major mumbo jumbo religious insanity.


Outlook Ruin

Watching this will surprise you and we are actually a bit overwhelmed ourselves with this.

For a couple older guys we did well. And the truth of the matter is although it appears dangerous and it is we were very cautious and only a stupid move would have caused one of us to get hurt.

Also we want people to know we never entered touched or removed anything from this site.

We accomplished what we set out to do for the second time in 16 years with video. We hope you enjoy this short movie of an Anasazi ruin high in the sky and for certain never seen by many people ever.


Back To Reality

And that reality is after spending a number of days in the 4-Corners area that we are nothing but piss ants in time. Been there before but each time the harshness and beauty becomes even more striking.

Looking at the many photos taken on the old laptop of mine while camping did not think there were many good ones. Looking at them on the big screen here at home my bud and I were just blown away by what we saw. It was rather bland for colors because of overcast sky's and being just the beginning of spring where we were at. Below are some samples of what we saw. There will be more of course.

I have not read anything or listened to any politics for almost nine days now and am having a hard time going there and am not sure I want to for awhile and probably won't for the next few days. My pictures are better than the political posts I put up anyway. We'll see as starting this week work will become very intense for at least a couple months.

What is going to happen is there will a couple short movies about what we did. One is on a very intense climb to a ruin that we revisited that even amazes us and one on cooking in the desert which may provide too many chuckles on old One Fly.

Will try to get the ruin video up today.

Always good to be home but my real wish is to do this type of thing all the time - if only.

I hope all of you are good!


On Our Way Home


Still Alive

Headed down a 50 mile dead end road just now with what is supposed to have some of the best geological formations anywhere at least that's what they say.

I don't wanna work no more!!!

Giv'em hell.


stupid, fat, ugly and mean: our highest aspirations

what the hell is the matter with these repugs? what don't they get? they cling to primitive attitudes about pretty much everything it seems. a bunch of knucke-draggers who collectively believe that the world was created by the invisible cloud being approximately 4,000 years ago, insisting that everyone be enslaved and addicted to what's left of prehistic forests and swamps... or you are most certainly on drugs if you take a position that advocates a sensible, new approach to solving some of the transportation needs of a nation desperately needing to create new jobs:

WASHINGTON (CN) - Republicans heaped ridicule on Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood at a Wednesday hearing after LaHood suggested that bicycling and walking are just as good ways to get around as cars. To laughter, Republican House members suggested LaHood was taking drugs, dismissed the very idea of bike lanes and derided any change to a car-dependent society. "What job is going to be created by having a bike lane?" asked Ohio Republican Steven LaTourette.

pit bull-types often run in vicious packs, and this day was no different. the mutt from the cornfield couldn't resist taking a few bites as well:

Republicans pounced on statements and what LaHood called a "sea change" in transportation policy. Ranking Member Tom Latham from Iowa said that one biker is one less person paying into the transportation trust fund and said real transportation needs are being "swept aside."

is that right, mr. cyclist-hater?
count me as one less car hogging up finite resources. when i ride my bike, my registered and insured vehicles sit in the driveway- producing zero emissions and not clogging the roads.
i own property and pay taxes on that so that other people's kids can go to public schools. that's fine by me.... and by the way, i don't have kids of my own and never will.
i'm still paying taxes on all of it. it's called doing my fair share, but i guess to guys like these it smacks of socialism and they find profound discomfort in that. good. when given any opportunity, slugs such as Latham choose to further marginalize those who live simply, those who are consuming less than what he believes should be consumed.

generally speaking, this is not something that i discuss to draw attention to myself and step onto the sopabox of righteousness. i go about my busines and live quiet and small. either ya get it, or ya don't.
sometimes though, me and my biker pals get riled up and pissed off by the idiots in cages. then we take action. we will see who gets "swept aside".
(click the link and read the article. it gives some insight as to why the repugs dislike cyclists so much).

Out Of Here

We think there are adventures to be found in SE Utah. In fact we know that. In a bit we're gone so there will be little posting but there should be plenty of ammunition for things seen and done.

One thing we want to do for sure is explore once again this tiny ruin that sits very high up on a small ledge that we found years ago. Not many have been to this place. Way too cool.

It's 0 degrees and time to hit it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. Spring is close-yes!



Kondi Baby Back In Da News

Twisting and choking the chicken on the history of Irak just like her evil big ass twin Rover.

Coulda woulda shoulda

It will never happen but if these killers ever swing for their numerous treasonous actions OTC wants to be polite and proper about the process.

Fat ass lying bitches first. You betcha!

Religious Crazy's Circling The Wagons

The nutters her in Colorado are feeling picked on once again as this same scam is being practiced in many state governments around the country.

A coalition that includes Colorado Family Action and the Colorado Catholic Conference has taken the first step toward amending the state constitution to prohibit the government from infringing on the religious liberty of an individual or a religious organization. Kraska, also a representative of a coalition called Coloradans for Liberty, said a ballot initiative to amend the constitution is being considered because of a general sense that religious freedom is eroding under governmental pressure.

Dumb Shits In Boulder

Yea even though you're following the letter of the law doesn't make it quite right and now the do-gooders feel they are forced to make the existing law even stronger so that in the end we all have less few rights. There are better ways.

A nudist in Boulder who was threatened with eviction last spring for gardening outside wearing only pasties and a thong has caused another stir by gardening topless. At least four callers told police 52-year-old Catharine Pierce was in her yard topless on Wednesday. State law prohibits exposed genitals, but Pierce was wearing a thong and gardening gloves. Police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley says an officer told Pierce to consider wearing a shirt because children at the school across the street were playing outside. Pierce's husband then complained to police. Huntley says a police supervisor agreed with Pierce's husband that Pierce wasn't breaking any laws. Boulder is considering expanding its anti-nudity law.


On the Side Of The Men In Blue On This One

Just how stupid are these slugs? Really stupid because anybody with a thimble full of brains should be able to comprehend you cannot win at this level when you pull the shit you have on these cops. Gotta be the meth. Stupid anyway+meth equals mega dumb ass.

Three booby-trap attacks on an anti-gang task force in Southern California prompted the arrests of about 30 members of California's largest motorcycle gang, prosecutors said Wednesday. Members of the Vagos were arrested as part of the crackdown in Riverside and Shasta counties in California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah after the attacks on police in Hemet, Calif.

It's Getting Dark Out

They let him speak the truth because he's a small man and garners little attention. When the time arrived to serve their masters and Dennis Kucinich was still not on board they took him to the back room where he was given the "or else" treatment and all of a sudden wa-la he's on board the corporate gravy train for HCR. Imagine that.

I don't give a shit what anyone says this bill if passed does not come anywhere close to what is needed. It's a sham and unacceptable.

In the wings is Broadband legislation.

Judging from the back-slapping and high fives over at the FCC, you’d think that America’s Internet was sailing smoothly into the future. Think again.

When this is finished the corporations will be just as happy as the HC bastards. We will be screwed here as well and when they have control of the internets - game over.

I suppose many will call that a win as well.


Sexual Assaults Are Up In The Military

They say it's because of

Same BS Just A Different Year

Petraeus flapp'in his jaw once again with the samo about their two wars over there. Shit like-

“Significant work remains in improving the quality of the Afghan force through enhanced partnering, training and recruiting.”

“critical shortages” that “continue to degrade mission effectiveness.”

and on and on. Big fucking deal.

Then there's the complaint-

To that end, more trainers are needed — and more may come out of U.S. forces. NATO countries, Petraeus said, have supplied only about half of the total U.S. officials recently pressed for.

Anybody with an ounce of humanity doesn't want to play your war games asshole. You know country's that choose health care and education over war.

No you wouldn't would you!


AG Holder Tells Congress The Truth


Sounds like a good idea to me.

Everybody shut the fuck up and go get him or his corpse so we can get the hell out of that shit hole now!!

Taking Charge In Afghanistan

So McChrystal is taking control of all the forces. I thought that was his job anyway but what the hell do I know about killing civilians.

If anyone out there thinks this rhetoric will make a difference will be believing a delusion!

Poor Man's Hotrod

What can I say-as a former motor head this looks like it could be fun for a bit anyway.


Boehner And OTC Agree

Overdone Boner had this to say -

It sure is and we agree. What we will never agree on is how you will have accomplished that feat.


For Gear Heads And Those Who Wonder How

This week I did some major manipulation of my picture files and was very diligent in making sure that nothing screwed up. Well of course it did and it appears I have not lost much except for the time it's going to take to get everything reorganized and back where they are supposed to be. Never the less things will never be quite the same. In the process of seeing what I was up against I came across this picture that always left questions in my mind.

When I came around the corner like the pickup is doing I noticed these tracks immediately. As I came closer I began questioning how the hell were these done? The grade on this road is probably 6 to 8%. I was headed to the river to fish and I knew when I came back I would try to take a half ass decent picture in an attempt to figure out just how they were made.

In a different life many dollars worth of tire rubber has been deposited on all sorts of roads because that's just the way it was. I like the smell of burning rubber not just in the morning but anytime but with all that experience I have never seen a set of tire marks like these.

After looking at this closely my conclusion is this-I do think they are from a burnout. What's important to note if you take a close look and see the grooves of the tires are not distorted where it changes direction.

These are not skid marks from locking the brakes up going down hill. This vehicle did not necessarily have posi-traction. Less weight was on the right side because of the incline and that's why the tire marks are so dark. I think the tires were spinning very fast at least on the right side initially and because again it is uphill the vehicle was moving very slow and that allowed with a very quick move of the steering wheel the vehicle to change direction in such a way that rear end of the vehicle did not begin to slide.

In support of that you can see that as the vehicle begins to change direction the weight transfers and the left tire gains traction and the marks become darker and after the transition completely both tires even out almost identical as the weight of the vehicle is centered because it is going straight.

It may not be much but I get a kick out of stuff like this. I think I may have got this correct but unclear why I couldn't figure it out before. Right or wrong.

Hugeness with a click of the picture

Run Run There Could Be A Wolf Pack Out There

Same old shit - different place. The last wolves in Colorado were killed off 70 years ago.

Yea the tough guys are afraid. You know the ones with ample amounts of rifles and bullets. Big ass pickup trucks and $10,000 4wheelers in the back. Some with packs of dogs for running down and treeing mountain lions so they can be easily shot. These fellows are afraid? Imagine what it must be like on the receiving end of all that fear.

I would very much like to hear and see a wolf around these parts. There is more than enough room for everybody.


No Man's Land

And the survey said--

Stunned Again In The State Of Mormon

And we're not talking UNLV basketball here.

It doesn't end when it comes to the religiously insane no matter who or where you are.

A late-night confession by Utah's House majority leader about sitting nude in a hot tub with a minor 25 years ago has shocked this conservative state's political establishment but has not prompted calls from party leaders for him to resign.

This is actually a cover up article by the whore AP because the man says he didn't get any from this minor and payed her off in 2002 to keep quite and the women said she wasn't talking.

The fact of the matter is found in the Mormon paper itself imagine that!

Cheryl Maher said Friday that Utah House Majority Leader Kevin Garn is lying about having no physical contact with her when they went hot-tubbing in the nude when she was 15 years old.

Somebody is full of shit and I put my money on the Mormon to come in first in the department of lie like a rug and maybe the story will go away.

Couldn't resist this. Garn's fellow legislators applauding that their leader had sex with a minor-you betcha!



Thursday's 360 Shimmy

Not much going on. Getting to the end of winter work and the wait for the snow to go and the grass to grow. What do you do in the winter time? Shit like this.

Not In My Cyber Space

Don't understand the why here because so many were doing it before our brilliant congress felt the need to step in and curtail what the people wanted to do on the internets.

A new poll finds most Americans oppose Internet and half oppose sports betting, but many have gambled themselves at a casino.

It's okay to throw your money away in casino's all over the country but not on the net.



Gambling Pays

Some make out quite nicely year after year.

Nearly $1.7 Million In Grants Awarded From Wild Rose Casino Profits

This is in a county of 10,000 people and if you click on the link above you can see just how far 1.7 mil can go. These monies have an impact on every resident who live in this county.

Without a doubt when this time of year rolls around gambling unlike corn is king.

Observations From Last Weekend

There are several big new churches in the area I've been visiting. This takes big money that's for damn sure.

No one has taken our guns away as there are plenty to be had along with bullets.

This is the thousands of dollars room where money comes to shop. If  I pay big bucks for a gun you can damn well bet it's gonna have some wood in it.

Won't say where this was but I swear there were baggers and nutters damn near everywhere you turned. Most of the merchandise in this massive store are toys nothing more. I did buy three pocket t-shirts and a $30 pair of hip waders. Boats and 4wheelers are toys but waders is business.

Then there was Strudel Boy climbing a windmill in the Pawnee National Grasslands.

It was nice to get away for a few days.


Can You Go To Hell For Looking The Other Way?

When you're Poop Benny the Rat's brother maybe that should be taken into consideration when the time comes. The old fart is 86 and could be checking out at any time.

The pope's brother said in a newspaper interview published Tuesday that he slapped pupils as punishment after he took over a renowned German boys' choir in the 1960s. He also said he was aware of allegations of physical abuse at an elementary school linked to the choir but did nothing about it.

This is really getting old and now it's the pope's brother that looked the other way. They all look the other way and for a long time too.

This is sick shit because it continues to this very day and nothing is really done except for a bit of lip service.

This has become evil and every Catholic who does not demand this stop even at parish level becomes part of the evil that is called pedophilia.

The Dirt Baggers-Oops I Mean Dirt Farmers Are Worried Back In The Cornfield

Farmers are going to bitch about something that's just the way it's been and it will not change. They'll bitch day in day out. They'll bitch about the same thing for awhile or move on if there is something better to bitch about until that particular bitch grows old then move back to the starting bitch or maybe bitch about several things if they think it will make them feel better. Bitchers they are and bitchers they will remain and it will never change and that you can take to the bank.

This is what some are bitching about now.

But she's the kind of farmer the Obama administration wants more of, and that raises alarms among some colleagues in conventional agriculture. They worry they'll be harmed by the Agriculture Department's new focus on small farms and encouragement local production of fruits and vegetables.

A female agricultural terrorist wreaking havoc in da cornfield you betcha.

Personally I would like to see the corn belt filled with this type of agriculture. There are opinions from the other side that say vegetable production like this would not even make a dent in what is consumed. I disagree and think that in the future this is where and how most of our vegetables will be grown.

That is if the bitchers can pull their bigoted heads out of there asses and contribute. Don't count on it.


There's More To This Story


Filling Shoes

It's like the Taliban by gosh. It seems we get a #2 fairly often and maybe there's been a couple #1's but somebody comes along to replace them because how can we keep getting the same number much of the time. I see a similarity to evangelists the major difference being we aren't killing them, They are being replaced though.

Pastor E. Christopher Hill, protege of influential televangelist T.D. Jakes, is succeeding Heritage Christian Church founder Dennis Leonard as senior pastor of one of the city's largest churches, newly renamed Potter's House Church of Denver.

It's So Easy To Get Hurt

We had ice fall on us today from an ice dam we have removed for about the last ten years. I just drew a tiny bit of hurt but my partner took a bunch. We changed the way we had been doing it at my request.

We would have been okay but almost the whole length of the dam fell something that has never happened before.

Missed this by a mile and if I'm around next year and it needs to be done
again which it will this will never happen again. One of the issues many face when you live in snow country.

As is his will cost $400 easy not to mention the time. Click on the picture and look at the hood.

This is dangerous doing these things. Not this year but someone and it's not me in this picture have to go up and clear the fresh air and exhaust vent that gets covered in snow so the furnace continues to function

Last year about this time and not going to dig up bad memories posted here but I hurt myself and was very lucky to be able to walk away from what happened. My boss was driving down the road and saw it happen and thought I was probably dead. But he's still here and can't tell you how fast this shit can reach out and kick your butt.

I am going to make a point and a commitment from here on out in the time I have left in this type of work environment to take just a little bit more time to evaluate what needs to be done and how it will get done.

Over the years there have been no serious accidents of any kind in what is a inherently dangerous environment.


Yes We Did

Originally posted 1/18/08

We drank this local concoction in Ghana more times than not. "Akpet" was cheap and all in all pretty damn nasty. Some of these guys would distill it twice and surprisingly when made like that it was quite good. Accidentally saw this and it reminded me of days gone by.

An Akpeteshie competition at Bodomasi, near Agogo in Asante Akim North, in Ashanti Region, ended with the death of a competitor, Yaw Ohemeng, 35. Yaw, also known as Two Sure, was one of three people to whom the challenge was allegedly thrown. The others, who were named as Yaw Willie and Kay, declined it but Ohemeng gladly accepted it.

Akpeteshie is a popular local spirit used for ceremonial purposes and also recreational drinking. In conjunction with other local ingredients some local community members believe that it is an effective male performance enhancer. For some individuals, distillation is an important means of generating an income in addition to the sale of crops.

Gin Distillation from Palm Wine is a traditional local process and a source of supplementary income. However, the process currently has a number of areas in which improvement is desired.
