Pantoll Hike


Sausalito, Tiburon, East Bay

A true comedy of errors. First, we went to a spot in Ross that had a crazy small parking lot, so we headed south toward Mt. Tam. The second spot was lovely, but a 4.4-mile hike turned into a 7- or 8-mile trip complete with 3 miles of wrong turns and uphill backtracking. We made bad decisions to the very end. By the time we reached the car, my feet were dead, my calves were tight and as soon as I sat down in the car my stomach went crazy. I was "hecka" naseous all the way. After an hour in a coma, I got up and was fine, but I was quite worried for a while.

Lessons learned: Always buy the map, always have a backup and never go more than 6 miles or so.

Watch subject. Bush goes ballistic about other countries being evil and dangerous, because they have weapons of mass destruction. But, he insists on building up even a more deadly supply of nuclear arms right here in the US. What do you think? How does that work in a democracy again? How does being more threatening make us more likeable?Isn't
the country with the most weapons the biggest threat to the rest of the world? When one country is the biggest threat to the rest of the world, isn't that likely to be the most hated country?
What happened to us, people? When did we become such lemmings?
We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
