    Yes, a whole country destroyed by General Motors (and Ike) but you see that mostly in Los Angeles county...where two people sharing one vehicle is unheard of and un-welcome!

    You'll be walking at least 10 miles before you can find a place to legally park near a beach for free...

    The company I work for has a factory in Methuen. The staff there won't even walk to the restaurant on the opposite side of the road.

    One of my collegues from England walked across once and was told not to do it again by a police officer - despite there being a controlled pedestrian crossing across the road!!

    Umm? I don't understand, what was the officers reasoning? That's just very odd.

    We couldn't work it out either. Suffice to say that it's only non American visitors who walk across. All of the employees drive what must be all of 100 yards!

    I would just not listen to him, I would first ask why of course... And then use the crosswalk ... No one is stopping me from crossing the damn road, that's BS.

    John you realize we might both be in the same place at the same time if I show up to this instead of hike... I did consider doing both (celebrating nature at Whitey's) but then thinking about all the comparison jokes to the LF lenses I figure it's best I don't do that... Lol
