Hey Saddam, drop some carpet here for me. My living room could use some new floor covering.

pokey, i'd love to do the whole thing. but i only have one week of vacation this year and my aife and i are taking ours together for the first time in a long time. next year when i have 2 weeks i'll do the whole week. and i have done the whole week in the past.

oh and i'm only doing the first day, not both the first and last.

but what about you? have you even done RAGBRAI before? how many times? and how many days?

if you have never done RAGBRAI then you dont have any room to talk, do you now?

if you have then thank you for coming to iowa and spending money to help support our economy. (yes it is a big money maker and it does help the economy here.)

One wonders how many times some of you need to be reminded of the forum guidelines.

Quote:
Respectfulness... We expect our member to show respect for others. Respecting their person, their views, their time and their opinions, and their belief systems ... even if you disagree with them.

Harrassment... Harassment occurs when a member insults, attacks, and denigrates another member at any time. We have zero tolerance for taking an argument about a any topic to a personal level. For instance, the use of terms such as "idiot, moron, stupid" and other derogatory terms constitutes harassment. Repeated critical and sharply negative posts toward a forum member can also constitute harassment.
Thread closed. If this keeps up, some stronger action may be taken.
