good luck geographic... i tried hard to land a job in the rockies (anything i could apply to from denver/vail/aspen/glenwood springs to sun valley/jackson/reno) after school. And couldn't even get a call back (presumably in a similar field to you based on your sig).

All i ended up getting is a crappy government job. But at least i'll be on the road today by 4 see you guys around.

Oh yeah Chip, haven't tried those sweet black risers yet, but I'm considering them with a new beater bike I got.

I simply can't afford it there. I do like it too, but it's impractical for me.

You got it, baby. I might actually run too late to make the bar tonight though. I have a bit of a date for a show at the Tower. We're going to be back as quickly as possible, but might have to just meet up at the museum.

I was an Urbs major and did a bunch of housing an community development intern gigs. I applied to a lot of assistant town planner positions in places like Eagle. But i didnt limit myself to that field. I applied for any job i could find short of retail and lift ops (teaching/tutoring at the vail ski academy, positions at local papers, research positions, sustainable transportation thinktanks in denver)

And after they blow that tunnel to connect all those utah resorts, getting around will be a cinch.

Here here for cute bartenders. Have you guys been treating her right, $-wise? If she's hooking you up, your tips should be reflecting that. Like 20-25% or more. Just saying, as a former drink slinger.

20% should be the minimum for anyone who isnt a dick.

why dont you guys hit up Doobies? Their pitchers are pretty cheap $8... or Tattooed Moms, no pitchers, but we usually get a good hook up. You could always do Rays Happy Birthday Bar and get 50 cent cans of Schlitz. Yummmm!!!

I knew I could count on you Kevin. And now, I have a peachy-keen spoke card. What should I put on the other side of my excuse card?

And I would never imagine a fine human being like yourself would mistreat the ladies. Perish the thought!

quiet or I'll smack you... Im sorry baby, I didnt mean that.


The other side of your excuse card should be a picture of a punching fist with an arrow that says "you". That way, your employer will know what will happen if he or she does not let you go home. Nothin' says "serious and professional" like a picture of a punching fist.

Oh yeah, and my boss finally gave me a computer at work, well, I took a computer without her knowing, so now I can check bikeforums... hooray! I am still not coming to the pretzel ride though, so eat my crap. hahaha But, at least now I can post and bother you!

But if you live in Tahoe, you'll have 3 times that number in your back yard.
