    Things that begin with the letter B

    Berkeley, CA. University of California at Berkeley. Possible boat to temporarily live on? Possible job working on a **** boat? Not the most glamorous of jobs but get to be out on the bay...

    Bellingham, WA. Western Washington University. On Puget Sound. Recommended to me by my chemistry instructor.

    The poo pumping business is pretty recession-resistant.

    Ironically, when I saw "Things that begin with the letter B" the first thing that came to mind was an act that could be described colloquially as "poo pumping"

    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    I think the latter part would trump the former.

    Very close to a lot of the awesomest road riding evar, and I hear the mountain biking is pretty swell as well.

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Bellingham is close enough you can slap on down here to say "hi" to use Seattleish types.

    Moving to UC Berkeley? You'll be a 'Bear' ('Golden Bear' to be exact). You could get a job being a barista, bike mechanic, bike messenger, Bartender, Bass Player, banker, bookstore worker . . . but with the California economy 'boinking', you'll probably end up being a Bum in the Bay Area. Bummer

    Please, like there's any comparison. Here are just a very few things that come to mind about life in Berkeley.

    A university full of smart people, Nobel prize winners, hippies, conservatives.

    A city full of hippies, kooks, and regular people.

    There are lots of asian co-eds (I believe asians are the single biggest ethnicity at the university) if you got the asian fetish thing going.

    There's a really goofy but really elaborately conceptualized and designed hippie raw restaurant called Café Gratitude. I think it's a place Shadiyah would really like.

    Legendary Indian Rock to practice bouldering or rope climbing. Galen Rowell spent a lot of time here. Also Cragmont Rock Park.



    The legendary Freight and Salvage has tons of live acoustic music, with mandolins and stuff.

    Epic bike riding.

    Epic views.

    The Bubble Lady.

    Stoney Burke.

    Chez Panisse for when you're feeling rich.

    Marmot Mountain Works for outdoor equipment.

    I think Mountain Hardwear used to be based in Berkeley, but apparently it's now in nearby Richmond. Warehouse sales twice a year, great stuff for over 50% off.

    In the Fall when I'm at the stadium enjoying Cal football, you can walk down Telegraph Avenue and there will be people noticing the jerseys and caps and saying "Is there a game today?" In other words, it's not a typical college town. Plenty of people don't care about spectator sports.



    3 to 3.5 hours to epic snowboarding at Tahoe. The snow in the Sierra sucks however compared to the Rockies. It's called Sierra cement, high water content, but when powdery it's fine.

    4 hours to epic big wall climbing at Yosemite or day hikes to the top of Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, etc.

    San Francisco is right across the bay. The city of freaks and billionaires.

    Just an hour(?) from x136. This may be the biggest negative thing about life in Berkeley.
