We wouldn’t be able to see the grey suits, my son gave us a car with tinted windows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm coelacanth∅:

i haven't picked up a hitch hiker that i didn't know already in several years; since i was out west actually. nobody much hitches around here.
Avatar 9:20pm TDK60:

yeah, hitching faded...but Out West, still more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm coelacanth∅:

i, on the other hand, have been picked up a few times...not hitching just walking, and people stop anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm coelacanth∅:

(or standing at the bus stop that has barely any indication of being a bus stop, on a 55mph road. but that's usually someone i know)

No hitchhiker hitchhikes the I-5

my last (probably my last) significant other had hopped box cars and wanted us to do it together but it hadn't happened by the time we parted company. i was willing to but i never did.
Avatar 9:35pm TDK60:

>public admission: I didn't hear Buddy Holly's original Not Fade Away first. I heard it thru the Stones Rolling's version (their 1st US single). I had an odd feeling as they sang the title as the song *faded away*!

TDK i haven't done any long-distance hitching either,honestly. i've travelled mostly with a car with a bicycle on the roof. park in a safe spot and explore locally with the bicycle. i always wanted that luxery; the option to sleep wherever i can park and not pitch a tent or look for something else.
i'm was the hitchie, not the hitcher.

@Jocelyn: Legs are getting stronger (it sucks, as I used to be an athlete, and used to bike everywhere until I got sick). Skin is slowly getting better, but I need to get insurance by month's end for my meds. Two months ago, I could barely walk across a parking lot, I can now walk for kms now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm coelacanth∅:

Bill i like the seasons, and i know people that left and moved back because they missed the seasons.
i am depressed by the rain though. there've been more rainy days than not since there were more snowy days than not, last winter. lots of mold and rotting plant life.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm why i like winter ∅:

i like the bare trees (what's left of them) and i like walking in the snow. i like seeing the creativity that snow brings out in some people and seeing people and dogs playing in it. i like the fact that i can pretend i'm stranded inside when it snows heavily and enjoy my entire day at home. i like that the snow fucks everyone's routines up; slows everybody down and makes it very quiet for a moment here & there.

In Southern California, this is the first winter that wasn’t in the 80s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm coelacanth∅:

haha, fair enough Bill. i think my fondness of the visuals (bare trees) comes from my photography hobby. the walking came from making the best of it when it was necessary - dressing appropriately, so comfortably even in freezing air and deep snow...bringing along a recorder and a camera.
  10:38pm chresti:

I get energized when it’s cold
Avatar 10:39pm TDK60:

I understand the danger of car travel in snow. But I have had magical moments in snow, like Winter Liker.

Actually, DoMM sounded pretty good at that speed. The original, of course, is Frank O'Toole's talkover music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Parq:

Mrs. Parq tells me that, hard on the heels of the Mercury biopic, an Elton John biopic is in the works. I was trying to think of musicians whose biopics I would see -- Jobraith, Mark E. Smith -- and Andy Partridge would be a damn fine choice.

-and a tribe called quest were masters in the field. they brought rap/hiphop to the next level with their sophistication. i feel that others upped their game because of those guys and the early 90s were very fertile as a result.
